SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Utilization of the Private Sector for Surveying and Mapping 
Services Survey.
    Background: Section 1517 of MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress 
in the 21st Century Act (Pub. L. 112-141), requires the Secretary of 
Transportation to conduct a survey of all States to determine the 
percentage of projects carried out under title 23, United States Code, 
in each State that utilize private sector sources for surveying and 
mapping services. Additionally, Section 306 of Title 23, United States 
Code, requires the Secretary of Transportation to issue guidance to 
encourage States to utilize, to the maximum extent practicable, private 
sector sources for surveying and mapping services for projects under 
title 23 of the United States Code; and, to develop a process for the 
oversight and regular monitoring of each State's use of the private 
sector to provide these services.
    The FHWA, via a survey, will be requesting information from the 
State Transportation Agencies to determine the percent of projects in 
each state for which private sector sources were utilized for surveying 
and mapping services. Included in the survey will be the request for 
information from the State transportation agencies, on the extent to 
which they use the private sector for surveying and mapping activities. 
Information obtained from the survey will be used to issue revised 
guidance recommending appropriate roles for government and private 
sector surveying activities and in continuing to encourage States to 
use private sector sources to provide these services. The survey 
results will also be used to develop a process for the oversight and 
regular monitoring of each State's use of the private sector to provide 
these services.
    Respondents: State Transportation Agencies (52, including the 
District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) in the first year, with follow-up 
surveys every two years after the initial survey.
    Frequency: Every two years after the initial survey.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 24 hours per participant 
State and 1.5 hours in the follow-up years.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 1,248 hours in 
the first year and 78 hours in the follow-up years.

    Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

    Issued On: February 21, 2014.
