The Office of Management and Budget is particularly interested in comments that:

1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;

OPM 1655, Application for Senior Administrative Law Judge, and OPM 1655-A, Geographic Preference Statement for Senior Administrative Law Judge Applicant, are used by retired Administrative Law Judges seeking reemployment on a temporary and intermittent basis to complete hearings of one or more specified case(s) in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946. OPM proposes to revise the information collection to more clearly state, in the form instructions, the licensure requirement for appointment as an ALJ; to eliminate an obsolete reference to the OF 612, Optional Application for Federal Employment, which OPM canceled on June 13, 2011, see 76 FR 31998; to reference a full list of the Privacy Act routine uses applicable to this information collection; to update geographic locations; and to make technical changes to citations and terminology.
