Start Preamble


Office of Personnel Management.




In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for comments on an existing information collection. This information collection, “Verification of Who is Getting Payments” (OMB Control No. 3206-0197: Form RI 38-107), is designed for use when OPM, for any reason, must verify that the entitled person is indeed receiving the monies payable. Failure to collect this information would cause OPM to pay monies absent the assurance of a correct payee.

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 whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information 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 the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

There are approximately 25,400 changes per year. Each form takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. The annual estimated burden is 4,234 hours.

Comments on this proposal should be received within 60 calendar days from the date of this publication.
