Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), we invite the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed information collections. We published a notice of proposed collection for this information collection on March 20, 2020 (85 FR 16135) and we received no comments. We have therefore submitted the described information collection to OMB for approval.

You should address one or more of the following points in any comments or suggestions you submit: (a) whether the proposed information collections are necessary for NARA to properly perform its functions; (b) our estimates of the burden of the proposed information collections and their accuracy; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information we collect; (d) ways we could minimize the burden on respondents of collecting the information, including through information technology; and (e) whether these collections affect small businesses. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this notice, we solicit comments concerning the following information collection:

Abstract: We need to obtain specific information from researchers who wish to request copies of these records, in order to search for the specific records they seek and to handle their order and payment for copies of the records. We use these standardized forms as the means of collecting the needed information so that we can handle the volume of requests we receive for these records in a timely fashion. Researchers provide credit card information to authorize billing or request expedited mailing of the copies. They may use paper or electronic versions of the forms or may fill them out and order online through our Order Online! service at​research_​room/​obtain_​copies/​military_​and_​genealogy_​order_​forms.html.
