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 review of a revised information collection. “Representative Payee Application” (OMB Control No. 3206-0140; Form RI 20-7), is used by the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) to collect information from persons applying to be fiduciaries for annuitants or survivor annuitants who appear to be incapable of handling their own funds or for minor children. “Information Necessary for a Competency Determination” (OMB Control No. 3206-0140; Form RI 30-3), collects medical information regarding the annuitant's competency for OPM's use in evaluating the annuitant's condition.
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.
We estimate 12,480 RI 20-7 forms are completed annually. The form requires approximately 30 minutes for completion. The annual burden is 6,240 hours. Approximately 250 RI 30-3 forms will be completed annually. The form requires approximately 1 hour for completion. The annual burden is 250 hours. The total annual burden is 6,490.
