Office of Personnel Management.




In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget a request for clearance of a revised information collection. OPM sends the OFI 10 questionnaire to a random sampling of record and personal sources contacted during background investigations when investigators have performed fieldwork. The OFI 10 is used as a quality control instrument designed to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the investigative product, as it inquires of the sources about the investigative procedure employed by the investigator, Start Printed Page 38923the investigator's professionalism, and the information discussed and reported. In addition to the pre-formatted response options, OPM invites the recipients to respond with any other relevant comments or suggestions. A postage-paid envelope is provided with the OFI 10.

Comments are particularly invited on:

  • Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Office of Personnel Management and its Center for Federal Investigative Services, which administers its background investigations.
  • Whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection 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 asked to respond, through the use of the appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and,
  • Whether the reinterview questionnaire addresses all of the questions relevant to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the investigative product.

It is estimated that 9,600 OFI 10 forms are sent to individual sources annually. Of those, it is estimated that 5,600 individuals will respond. Each form takes approximately six minutes to complete. The estimated annual burden is 560 hours.
