The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Title, Form, and OMB Number: Military Critical Technical Data Agreement; DD Form 2345; OMB Number 0704-0207.
Type of Request: Extension.
Number of Respondents: 6,000.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Annual Responses: 6,000.
Average Burden per Response: 20 Minutes.Start Printed Page 32330
Annual Burden Hours: 2,000.
Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary as a basis for certifying individuals or businesses to have access to DoD export-controlled military critical technical data subject to the provisions of 32 CFR 250. Individuals and enterprises that need access to unclassified DoD-controlled militarily critical technical data must certify on DD Form 2345 that data will be used only in ways that will inhibit unauthorized access and maintain the projection afforded by U.S. export control laws. Use of the form permits U.S. and Canada defense contractors to certify their eligibility to obtain certain unclassified technical data with military and space applications. Nonavailability of this information prevents defense contractors from accessing certain restricted databases and obstructs conference attendance where restricted data will be discussed.
Affected Public: Business or Other For-Profit; Not-For-Profit Institutions.
Frequency: On Occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain Benefits.
OMB Desk Officer: Mr. David M. Pritzker.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Mr. Pritzker at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
DOD Clearance Officer: Mr. Robert Cushing.
Written requests for copies of the information collection proposal should be sent to Mr. Cushing, WHS/DIOR, 1215 Jefferson Davis Highway, Suite 1204, Arlington, VA 22202-4302.Start Signature
