Proposed Collection; Comment Request; OPM Form1203

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. 
L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces a proposed extension of 
a form which collects information from the public. OPM Form 1203, 
Occupational Supplement Series--Form C, is an optical scan form 
designed to collect applicant information and qualifications in a 
format suitable for automated processing and to create basic applicant 
records for an automated examining system. OPM uses the form to carry 
out their responsibility for open competitive examining for admission 
to the competitive service in accordance with section 3304, 5 U.S.C.
    ``Comments are particularly invited on:

--Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of functions of the Office of Personnel Management, and 
whether it will have practical utility;
--Whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of 
information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and 
methodology; and
--Ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate 
technological collection techniques or other forms of information 

    Approximately 500,000 forms are completed each year with an average 
completion time of 27 minutes. For copies of this proposal, call James 
Farron on (202) 418-3208 or email to [email protected]

DATES: Comments on this proposal should be received on or before March 
31, 1998.

ADDRESSES: Send or deliver comments to: Mrs. Crystal A. Wilson, U.S. 
Office of Personnel Management, Nationwide Examining Policy Office, 
1900 E Street, NW, Room 2458, Washington, DC 20415.
