an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number.
    The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment

62546).
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 850A,

employment clearance must have an investigation of their background. 
NRC Forms 850A, 850B, and 850C will be used by the NRC to obtain 
information on NRC contractors, subcontractors, and other individuals 
who are not NRC employees and require access to NRC buildings, IT 
systems, sensitive information, sensitive unclassified information, or
