OMB Control Number: 3060-0774.

OMB Approval Date: June 23, 2011.

Expiration Date: June 30, 2014.

Title: Parts 36 and 54, Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service.

Form Number: N/A.

Estimated Annual Burden: 7,577,634 responses; .084 hours-125 hours (average); 1,152,255 hours total per year.

Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 151-154, 201-205, 218-220, 214, 254, 303(r), 403 and 410.

Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality. However, respondents may request materials or information submitted to the Commission be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission's rules.

Needs and Uses: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the revision to the subject collection. In this revision, the Commission made mathematical corrections, rule part consolidations, and eliminated one item to avoid duplicity (information was being reported on the same rule provision under a different OMB control number). Redundant or unnecessary information was removed. OMB approved a 127.200 hour burden reduction adjustment. In the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (1996 Act), Congress directed the Commission to implement a new set of universal service support mechanisms that are explicit and sufficient to advance the universal service principles enumerated in 47 U.S.C. 254.
