AGENCY:

Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled.

ACTION:

Proposed collection, Comment request for renewal of existing information collection instruments (Committee Form 401 and Committee Form 402).

SUMMARY:

The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled is inviting public comment on the proposed collection of information. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Federal agencies are required to publish notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, and to allow 60 days for public comment in response to the notice. This notice solicits comments on requirements relating to the initial certification of nonprofit agencies serving people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities (Committee Forms 401 and 402). The Committee is particularly interested in comments that help the agency to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

DATES:

Submit comments on or before January 29, 2002.

ADDRESSES:

Comments and requests for copies of the proposed information collection instruments should be submitted to: Janet Yandik, Information Management Specialist, Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled, Jefferson Plaza 2, Suite 10800, 1421 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202-3259; e-mail: jyandik@jwod.gov; phone: (703) 603-7746, fax (703) 603-0655.
