The Committee plans to submit a request to OMB that the initial and annual evaluations of competitive employability required by the Committee's regulations (41 CFR 51-4.3) be done on a standardized form. The Committee is requesting a 3-year term of approval for this recordkeeping activity.
Title:. AbilityOne Program Individual Eligibility Evaluation.
OMB Number: 3037-0011.
Agency Number: 3037.
Frequency: At least annually.
Affected Public: Nonprofit agencies serving people who are blind or severely disabled that participate in the AbilityOne Program.
Number of Respondents: 610.
Estimated Time per Respondent: Burden for conducting the evaluations is included in the Committee's recordkeeping requirement under OMB Control number 3037-005. It is estimated that requiring the use of a standardized form will not add to the recordkeeping burden once training is completed and the form adopted.

Total Burden Hours: 1,220.
Total Annual Costs: $36,600.
