Request for Comments: OGE published a first round notice of its intent to request paperwork clearance for the proposed unmodified OGE Form 450 Executive Branch Confidential Financial Disclosure Report on January 25, 2010 (see 75 FR 3905). OGE received no responses to that notice. Agency and public comment is again invited specifically on the need for and practical utility of this information collection, the accuracy of OGE's burden estimate, the enhancement of quality, utility and clarity of the information collected, and the minimization of burden (including the use of information technology). Comments received in response to this notice will be summarized for, and may be included with, the OGE request for extension of OMB paperwork approval.
