SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Local Public Agencies Training and Technical Assistance 
Needs Assessment.
    Background: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is charged 
with implementing a local technical assistance program under 23 U.S.C. 
504(b). Congress recognized that training and technical assistance to 
the local public agencies (LPA) to provide access to surface 
transportation technology, technical assistance and training was 
necessary and created the Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP) in 
1982. In 1991, through the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency 
Act (ISTEA) legislation, this program became the Local Technical 
Assistance Program (LTAP). There is an LTAP Center in every State and 
PR/USVI--51 total. The program has launched a strategic planning 
process and a lack of data directly linking training to improvements in 
program delivery and innovation deployment outcomes posed a challenge 
to the Agency.
    A needs assessment survey will help inform and identify what areas 
of knowledge that training needs to accomplish within the local agency 
community. The results of the assessment will help direct resources to 
the areas of greatest demand. The survey will be conducted once over a 
30 day period. These are surveys to collect training related 
information and there are no sensitive or personal questions, therefore 
confidentiality is not guaranteed or necessary.
    Respondents: Local Public Agency Public Works Directors and Road 
Superintendents.
    Frequency: This is a one-time collection.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 7,800 
responses who will each require an average of 15 minutes to respond.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The total annual public burden 
hours for this information collection is estimated to be 1,950 hours.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the FHWA's performance; (2) the accuracy of 
the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, 
usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that 
the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic 
technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. 
The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request 
for OMB's clearance of this information collection.

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

Michael Howell,
Information Collection Officer.
