law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform 
its statutory obligations. The Acting IC Clearance Official, Regulatory 
Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that 
notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to

collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of

reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) 
Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) 
Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or
