DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

Bureau of Reclamation


Notice of Request for Reinstatement of a Previously Approved 
Information Collection

AGENCY: Bureau of Reclamation, Interior.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this 
notice announces the intentions of the Bureau of Reclamation 
(Reclamation) to seek renewal of the information collection for Private 
Rental Survey. Under Public Law 88-459, Federal agencies are authorized 
to provide housing for Government employees under specified 
circumstances. A review of private rental market housing rates is 
required once every 5 years to ensure that the rental, utility, and 
related charges to occupants of Government Furnished Quarters (GFQ) are 
comparable to corresponding charges in the private sector. To avoid 
unnecessary duplication and inconsistent rental rates, the Bureau of 
Reclamation conducts housing surveys for the Departments of Interior, 
Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Justice, Transportation, Treasury, and 
Health and Human Services. If the collection activity was not 
performed, there would be no basis for determining open market rental 
costs.

DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by June 6, 1997.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
To submit comments on this information collection contact: Bureau of 
Reclamation, Information Collection Officer, D-7924, P.O. Box 25007, 
Denver, Colorado 80225-0007; telephone: (303) 236-0305 extension 462; 
Internet address: infocoll@do.usbr.gov

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments are invited on: (a) whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of participating agencies, including 
whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy 
of Reclamation's estimated burden of the proposed collection of 
information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of 
the collection of information on those who are to respond, including 
through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and 
suggestions submitted within 60 days of this publication.
