The Paperwork Reduction Act requires all federal agencies to obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before collecting information from the public. Ways of collecting information include questionnaires, focus groups, telephone surveys, applications, performance reports, customer satisfaction surveys, studies and evaluations, interviews, forms, and any other means of requesting information from ten or more respondents.
The public generally has two opportunities to comment on a proposed information collection request. All comments must be submitted through the Regulations.gov website.
