SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act

its statutory obligations. The Acting Deputy Chief Information Officer, 
Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes this notice 
containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission 
of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped 
by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g., 
new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) 
Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and 
proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of 
collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites 
public comment at the address specified above. Copies of the requests
