early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal

its statutory obligations. The Acting Leader, Information Management 
Group, Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes that 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
