Title: Army ROTC Referral Information, ROTC Form 155-R, OMB Control Number 0702-0111.Start Printed Page 2122
Needs and Uses: The Army ROTC Program produces approximately 75 percent of the newly commissioned officers for the U.S. Army. The Army ROTC must have the ability to attract quality men and women who will pursue college degrees. Currently, there are 13 recruiting teams (Goldminers) located in various places across the United States aiding in this cause. Their mission is to refer quality high school students to colleges and universities offering Army ROTC. Goldminers, two officer personnel, will collect ROTC Referral information at a high school campus and document it on ROTC Cadet Command Form 155-R.
Affected Public: Individuals or households.
Annual Burden Hours: 4,075.
Number of Respondents: 16,300.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Average Burden per Response: 15 minutes.
Frequency: On occasion.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
The purpose of the information is to provide prospect referral data to a Professor of Military Science to contact individuals who have expressed an interest in Army ROTC. If Goldminers did not collect referral information, we would suffer a negative impact on the recruiting effort and subsequent commissioning of new officers for the U.S. Army.Start Signature
