Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the ODNI invites the general public and Federal agencies to comment on the standard data elements being reviewed under regular review procedures for use by the Intelligence Community agencies and elements, as defined by the National Security Act of 1947, as amended. The title of the standard data element set is “Ancestry and Ethnicity Data Elements”, and is for the purpose of collecting ancestry and ethnicity data not otherwise captured in Standard Form (SF) 181, “Ethnicity and Race Identification”. Data collected, obtained by responding to three questions, will assist the Intelligence Community in recruiting and retaining employees of various national, sub-national, cultural and ethnic backgrounds important to the Intelligence Community's mission. Once the standard data elements are approved, each Federal agency and element of the Intelligence Community may make the form available to every Intelligence Community job applicant to voluntarily report this information and data through use of a paper form or other agency information collection process. Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary 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; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected.
