SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act

early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform
its statutory obligations. The Leader, Regulatory Information
Management Group, Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes
that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior

collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of
review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or
reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4)
Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5)
