In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to—
(1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
(2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
(3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
(4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Information Collection Requirement
OMB Control Number 1652-0063; Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) Reimbursement Request. TSA has authority to enter into agreements with participants to reimburse expenses incurred by airport operators for the provision of LEOs in support of screening at airport checkpoints. See 49 U.S.C. 106(l) and (m) and 114(m). Consistent with these authorities, TSA created the LEO Reimbursement Program.
TSA requires participants in the LEO Reimbursement Program to record the details of all reimbursements sought. In order to provide for the orderly tracking of reimbursements, the LEO Reimbursement Program uses TSA Form 3503, LEO Reimbursement Request. The information collected includes, but is not limited to, information regarding the invoice, invoicing point of contact, banking and checkpoint log worksheet.
The LEO Reimbursement Request form is available at www.tsa.gov. Upon completion, participants submit the LEO Reimbursement Request form directly to the LEO Reimbursement Program via fax, electronic upload (via scanning the document), mail, or in person. Upon receipt, TSA reviews all request for reimbursement forms.
TSA estimates that there will be 294 participant responses monthly, or 3,528 yearly. TSA estimates each respondent will spend approximately one hour to complete the request for reimbursement form, for a total annual hour burden of 3,528 hours.
