Overview of This Information Collection

1. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.

2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Drug Questionnaire.

3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The form number is DEA-341. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Drug Enforcement Administration.

4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract:

Affected Public: Individuals.

Others: None.

DEA is requesting an extension of a currently approved collection. This collection requires the drug history of any individual seeking employment with DEA. DEA policy states that a past history of illegal drug use may result in ineligibility for employment. The form asks job applicants specific questions about their personal history, if any, of illegal drug use.

5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 15,000 respondents will respond taking approximately 5 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 1,250 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take 5 minutes to complete the questionnaire. The burden hours for collecting respondent data sum to 1,250 hours (15,000 respondents × 5 minutes = 75,000 hours/60 seconds = 1250 hours).
