Estimated Annual Burden: 560 responses; 765 total annual burden hours; 1.5 hours average per respondent.

Needs and Uses: The collection of information needed to implement the Commission's modified designated entity eligibility rules is essential to the Commission's mission. This information collection enables the Commission to ensure that only legitimate small businesses reap the benefits of the Commission's designated entity program. The information collected will be used by the Commission to determine if the applicant is legally, technically, and financially qualified to participate in an FCC auction. In addition, if the applicant applies for status as a particular type of auction participant pursuant to the Commission's rules, the Commission will use the information to determine if the applicant is eligible for the status requested. The Commission's auction rules and requirements are designed to ensure that the competitive bidding process is limited to serious qualified applicants; to deter possible abuse of the bidding and licensing process; and to enhance the use of competitive bidding to assign Commission licenses in furtherance of the public interest.
