Office of Personnel Management.




In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-13, May 22 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget a request for review of an expiring information collection form, OPM-1386B, Applicant Race and National Origin Questionnaire. This form is used to gather information concerning the race and national origin of applicants for employment under the Outstanding Scholar provision of the Luevano Consent Decree, 93 F.R.D. 68 (1981). Start Printed Page 50225

During the sixty-day comment period, OPM received two comments. The first comment stated that OPM should provide the OPM-1386B form electronically on OPM's website for applicants to complete and e-mail to the proper agency. It is our intent to provide the form electronically on the OPM website for agencies to download and distribute. The second stated that applicants should submit their information directly to OPM. In the section titled “Monitoring, Recordkeeping and Reporting,” of the Luevano Consent Decree it specifically states that agencies will be responsible for collecting, maintaining, and compiling statistics on the special programs.

Approximately 100,000 OPM-1386B forms are completed annually. The 60-day Federal Register Notice reported an incorrect response time of 8 minutes. The correct estimated response time is 5 minutes with an annual public burden of 8,333 hours.
