SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Special Use Administration.
    OMB Number: 0596-0082.
    Expiration Date of Approval: October 31, 2012.
    Type of Request: Extension with Revision.
    Abstract: The information collection requirements are necessary for 
the Forest Service to issue and administer special use authorizations 
that allow the public to use and occupy National Forest System (NFS) 
lands under these authorities. The information collected is used by 
Forest Service officials (unless otherwise noted) to ensure that uses 
of NFS lands are authorized, in the public interest, and compatible 
with the Agency's mission; and/or record authorization of use granted 
by appropriate Forest Service officials.
    In addition, the Department of the Interior (DOI) statutes for the 
Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), 
National Park Service (NPS), and Bureau of Reclamation (BuRec) along 
with the statute for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) authorize 
its collection of information and will utilize form SF-299 
``Application for Transportation and Utility Systems and Facilities on 
Federal Lands.''
    Several statutes authorize the Forest Service to issue and 
administer authorizations for use and occupancy of NFS lands and 
collect information from the public for those purposes. The laws 
authorizing the collection of this information include the Organic 
Administration Act of 1897 (16 U.S.C. 551); Title V of the Federal Land 
Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. 1761-1771); Act of 
March 4, 1915 (16 U.S.C. 497); Alaska Term Permit Act of March 30, 1948 
(48 U.S.C. 341); Act of September 3, 1954 (68 Stat. 1146; 43 U.S.C. 
931c, 931d); National Forest Ski Area Permit Act (16 U.S.C. 497b); 
section 28 of the Mineral Leasing Act (30 U.S.C. 185); National Forest 
Roads and Trails Act (FRTA, 16 U.S.C. 532-538); section 7 of the 
Granger-Thye Act (16 U.S.C. 480d); Act of May 26, 2000 (16 U.S.C. 460l-
6d); Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (16 U.S.C. 6801-6814); 
Archeological Resource Protection Act of October 31, 1979 (16 U.S.C. 
1996); and the Rural Electrification Act of 1936, as amended.
    Forest Service regulations implementing these authorities, found at 
36 CFR part 251, Subpart B, contain information collection 
requirements, including submission of applications, execution of forms, 
and imposition of terms and conditions that entail information 
collection requirements, such as the requirement to submit annual 
financial information, to prepare and update an operating plan; to 
prepare and update a maintenance plan, and to submit compliance reports 
and information updates.
    The information helps the Agency identify the environmental and 
social impacts of special uses for purposes of compliance with the 
National Environmental Policy Act and program administration. In 
addition, the Agency uses the information to ascertain whether the land 
use fee(s) charged for special use authorizations are based on market 
value.
    Information collection occurs via application forms, as well as 
terms and conditions in special use authorizations and operating plans. 
There are six categories of information collected:
    (1) Information required from proponents and applicants to evaluate 
proposals and applications to use or occupy NFS lands,
    (2) Information required from applicants to complete special use 
authorizations,
    (3) Annual financial information required from holders to determine 
land use fees,
    (4) Information required from holders to prepare and update 
operating plans,
    (5) Information required from holders to prepare and update 
maintenance plans, and
    (6) Information required from holders to complete compliance 
reports and informational updates.
    The six categories cover all information collection requirements 
involved in administration of the Special Uses program, including 
application and reporting forms; authorization forms; supplemental 
special use authorization clauses in Forest Service Handbook 2709.11,

[[Page 31299]]

chapter 50; and information collection requirements not associated with 
an approved standard form.
    These six categories demonstrate the complexity of the special uses 
program and the importance of standard forms in administration of the 
program. Special use authorizations encompass a variety of activities 
ranging from individual private uses to large-scale commercial 
facilities and public services. Examples of authorized special uses 
include public and private road rights-of-way, apiaries, domestic water 
supply conveyance systems, telephone and electric service rights-of-
way, oil and gas pipeline rights-of-way, communications facilities, 
hydroelectric power-generating facilities, ski areas, resorts, marinas, 
municipal sewage treatment plants, and public parks and playgrounds.

Native Corporations a chance to request designation as a most directly 
affected Native Corporation for purposes of competing for the 
opportunity to conduct visitor services.

accounting or financial records, upon request by the authorized officer 
or as a term and condition of an authorization. In most circumstances, 
the form used is one customarily used for the type of business 
involved.

Category 4: Preparing and Updating Operating Plans (no designated form)

    Special use authorizations may contain a clause requiring the 
holder to prepare and update an operating plan that governs day-to-day 
operations of the authorized use. This information is useful to the 
holder and the Forest Service, because it specifies procedures and 
policies for conducting the authorized use. Typically, operating plans 
contain daily operating guidelines, fire abatement and control 
procedures, monitoring guidelines, maintenance standards, safety and 
emergency plans, and inspection standards. Operating plans are usually 
necessary for complex operations, commercial uses, and uses conducted 
in environmentally sensitive areas.

Category 5: Preparing and Updating Maintenance Plans (no designated 
form)

    A permit or easement issued under FLPMA or FRTA may require the 
holder or grantee to submit and update a road maintenance plan or 
information necessary for the preparation of a road maintenance plan. A 
road maintenance plan governs the responsibility of the holder or 
grantee to perform or pay for maintenance of an NFS road.

Category 6: Compliance Reports and Information Updates

Special use authorizations may contain a clause requiring the holder to 
provide the Forest Service with compliance reports, information 
reports, and other information required by Federal law or to manage NFS 
lands to ensure adequate protection of national forest resources and 
public health and safety. Examples of compliance and information 
updates include dam maintenance inspection reports and logs required by 
the Reclamation Safety of Dams Act of 1978; the Federal Dam Safety 
Inspection Act of 1979; and the Dam Safety Act of 1983; documentation 
that authorized facilities passed safety inspections; documentation 
showing that the United States is named as an additional insured in an 
insurance policy issued to a holder; notifications involving a change 
in ownership of authorized improvements or a change in control of the 
holder; and documentation of compliance with Title VI of the Civil 
Rights Act of 1964.
