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 Leader, Information Management Group,

containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission

by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g.

Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and
