This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
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.
