Form EIA-886, ``Alternate Fuel Vehicle Suppliers' Annual Report''

AGENCY: Energy Information Administration, Department of Energy.

ACTION: Notice of the proposed new Form EIA-886, ``Alternate Fuel 
Vehicle Suppliers Annual Report'' and Solicitation of Comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Energy Information Administration (EIA), as part of its 
continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden (required 
by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, Public Law 96-511, 44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), conducts a presurvey consultation program to provide the 
general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to 
comment on proposed and/or continuing reporting forms. This program 
helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired 
format, reporting burden is minimized, reporting forms are clearly 
understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents 
can be properly assessed. Currently, EIA is soliciting comments 
concerning the proposed new Form EIA-886, ``Alternate Fuel Vehicle 
Suppliers' Annual Report''.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before June 22, 1994. 
If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it 
difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, 
you should advise the contact listed below of your intention to do so 
as soon as possible.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to Frank Elsen, Office of Coal, Nuclear, 
Electric and Alternate Fuels, EI-523, Forrestal Building, U.S. 
Department of Energy, Washington, DC 20585, (202) 254-5425, FAX (202) 
254-5765.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR TO OBTAIN COPIES OF THE PROPOSED FORM AND 
INSTRUCTIONS: Requests for additional information or copies of the form 
and instructions should be directed to Frank Elsen at the address 
listed above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background.
II. Current Actions.
III. Request for Comments.

I. Background

    In order to fulfill its responsibilities under the Federal Energy 
Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-275) and the Department of 
Energy Organization Act (Pub. L. 95-91), the Energy Information 
Administration is obliged to carry out a central, comprehensive, and 
unified energy data and information program. As part of this program, 
EIA collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates data and 
information related to energy resource reserves, production, demand, 
and technology, and related economic and statistical information 
relevant to the adequacy of energy resources to meet demands in the 
near and longer term future for the Nation's economic and social needs.
    The Form EIA-886 will collect data from Alternate Fuel Vehicle 
(AFV) suppliers (i.e., Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and 
Conversion Companies) according to the requirements of section 503 
(b)(2) of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPACT). The survey will extend 
to both on-road and off-road, domestically manufactured/converted and 
imported vehicles. Actual data are requested for the previous calendar 
year (e.g., 1994); planned data are solicited for the next calendar 
year (e.g., 1995).

II. Current Actions

    This form is a new, annual data collection effort. This clearance 
is sought for three years.

III. Request for Comments

    Prospective respondents and other interested parties should comment 
on the actions discussed in item II. The following general guidelines 
are provided to assist in the preparation of responses.

As a Potential Respondent:

    A. Are the instructions and definitions clear and sufficient? If 
not, which instructions require clarification?
    B. Can the data be submitted using the definitions included in the 
instructions?
    C. Can data be submitted in accordance with the response time 
specified in the instructions?
    D. Public reporting burden for this collection is estimated to 
average 1 hour per response. How much time, including time for 
reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and 
maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the 
collection of information, do you estimate it will require you to 
complete and submit the required form?
    E. What is the estimated cost of completing this form, including 
the direct and indirect costs associated with the data collection? 
Direct costs should include all costs, such as administrative costs, 
directly attributable to providing this information.
    F. How can the form be improved?
    G. Do you know of any other Federal, State, or local agency that 
collects similar data? If you do, specify the agency, the data 
element(s), and the means of collection.

As a Potential User:

    A. Can you use data at the levels of detail indicated on the form?
    B. For what purpose would you use the data? Be specific.
    C. How could the form be improved to better meet your specific 
needs?
    D. Are there alternate sources of data and do you use them? What 
are their deficiencies and/or strengths?
    E. For the most part, information is published by EIA in U.S. 
customary units, e.g., cubic feet of natural gas, short tons of coal, 
and barrels of oil. Would you prefer to see EIA publish more 
information in metric units, e.g., cubic meters, metric tons, and 
kilograms? If yes, please specify what information (e.g., coal 
production, natural gas consumption, and crude oil imports), the metric 
unit(s) of measurement preferred, and in which EIA publication(s) you 
would like to see such information.
    EIA is also interested in receiving comments from persons regarding 
their views on the need for the information contained in the 
``Alternate Fuel Vehicle Suppliers' Annual Report''.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for OMB approval of the form; they also 
will become a matter of public record.

    Statutory Authorities: Section 2(a) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511), which amended Chapter 35 of Title 44 
of the United States Code [See 44 U.S.C. 3506(a) and (c)(1)].

    Issued in Washington, DC, May 13, 1994.
