U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the U.S. 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. Procedures for Submitting Compensation and Leave Claims, OPM 1673, is used to collect information from current and former Federal employees who are submitting a claim for compensation and/or leave. OPM needs this information in order to adjudicate the claim.
Approximately 100 claims are submitted annually. It takes approximately 60 minutes to compile the information needed to submit a Start Printed Page 52943claim. The annual estimated burden is 100 hours.
Comments are particularly invited on:
—Whether this collection of 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 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 use of the appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
