Start Preamble

The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Agency: National Telecommunications and Information Administration.

Title: NTIA/FCC Web-based Frequency Coordination System.

OMB Control Number: 0660-0018.

Form Number(s): N/A.

Type of Request: Regular submission (extension of currently approved information collection).

Number of Respondents: 4000.

Average Hours per Response: 15 minutes.

Burden Hours: 1000.

Needs and Uses: NTIA hosts a Web-based system that collects specific identification information (e.g., company name, location and projected range of the operation, etc.) from applicants seeking to operate in existing and planned radio frequency (RF) bands that are shared on a co-primary basis by federal and non-federal users. The Web-based system provides a means for non-federal applicants to rapidly determine the availability of RF spectrum in a specific location, or a need for detailed frequency coordination of a specific newly proposed assignment within the shared portions of the radio spectrum. The system helps expedite the coordination process for non-federal applicants while assuring protection of government data relating to national security.

Affected Public: Applicants seeking to operate in the 71-76 GHz, 81-86 GHz, and 92-95 GHz radio frequency bands.

Frequency: Once per applicant.

Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
