Start Preamble


Office of Personnel Management.




In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review of a revised information collection. The Application for 10-Point Veteran Preference (Standard Form 15) is used by agencies, OPM examining offices, and agency appointing officials to adjudicate individuals' claims for veterans' preference in accordance with the Veterans' Preference Act of 1944. OPM intends to update the form to reflect elimination of the Federal Personnel Manual and Standard Form 171 (Application for Federal Employment), and revised forms issued by the Start Printed Page 50813Department of Veterans Affairs used to document service-connected disabilities.

Approximately 4,500 forms are completed annually. Each form takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. The annual estimated burden is 750 hours.

Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of OPM, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

For copies of this proposal, contact Mary Beth Smith-Toomey on (202) 606-8358, FAX (202) 418-3251 or e-mail to Please be sure to include a mailing address with your request.


We will consider comments received on or before October 21, 2003.


Send or deliver written comments to: Leah Meisel, Deputy Associate Director for Talent and Capacity Policy, U.S. Office of Personnel Management, 1900 E Street NW., Room 6551, Washington, DC 20415.
