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: Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Military Base Reuse Status; DD Form 2740; OMB Number 0790-0003.
Type of Request: Extension.
Number of Respondents: 75.
Responses per Respondent: 2.
Annual Responses: 150.
Average Burden per Response: 1 hour.
Annual Burden Hours: 150.
Needs and Uses: Through the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), DoD, funds are provided to communities for economic adjustment planning in response to closures of military installations. A measure of program evaluation is the monitoring of civilian job creation and type of redevelopment at the former military installations. The respondents to the semi-annual survey will generally include single points of contact at the local level who are responsible for overseeing redevelopment efforts. If this data is not collected, OEA would have no accurate, timely information regarding the civilian reuse of former military bases. A key function of the economic adjustment program is to encourage private sector use of lands and buildings to generate jobs as military activity diminishes and to serve as a clearinghouse for reuse data.
Affected Public: Business or Other For-Profit; State, Local, or Tribal Government.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
OMB Desk Officer: Mr. Edward C. Springer.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Mr. Springer 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
Dated: July 23, 2001.
