Summary of Information Collection

This new form replaces the Application for Commission in the U.S. Navy/U.S. Navy Reserve, and collects less information than the current form requires. The reason for implementing this new form is that even though most of the information is already gathered by the Standard Form 86, Questionnaire for National Security Positions, OMB Control Number 3206-0005, and is already in the system there are still several bits of information needed for the boards to base their selection decisions on.
