Agency Information Collection Activities: E-Verify Program

ACTION: 60-Day Notice: Correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), 
on July 13, 2011, USCIS published a 60-day notice, ``Memorandum of 
Understanding to Participate in the Basic Pilot Employment Eligibility 
Program; Verify Employment Eligibility Status'' in the Federal Register 
at 76 FR 41279. USCIS is correcting two errors in this notice. First, 
the title incorrectly read ``Memorandum of Understanding to Participate 
in the Basic Pilot Employment Eligibility Program; Verify Employment 
Eligibility Status''. Instead it should read ``E-Verify Program.'' 
Second, comments are not requested on the E-Verify Memorandum of 
Understanding as previously published. Instead, comments are requested 
on the burden for enrolling in E-Verify (and modifying an ID/IQ 
contract if applicable), inputting information directly from Form I-9, 
Employment Eligibility Verification into the E-Verify web interface, 
and performing initial and secondary queries (for example: referring 
and resolving tentative nonconfirmations.).
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the item(s) contained 
in this notice, especially regarding the estimated public burden and 
associated response time, should be directed to the Department of 
Homeland Security (DHS), USCIS, Chief, Regulatory Products Division, 
Office of the Executive Secretariat, 20 Massachusetts Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20529-2020. Comments may also be submitted to DHS via 
facsimile to 202-272-0997 or via e-mail at USCISFRComment@dhs.gov. When 
submitting comments by e-mail please make sure to add OMB Control 
Number 1615-0092 in the subject box.
    The public comment period is unchanged and ends September 12, 2011, 
as cited in the previously published 60-day notice at 76 FR 41279 on 
July 13, 2011.

agencies should address one or more of the following four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
