OMB Control Number
OIRA assigns an OMB Control Number to an Information Collection Request (ICR) upon its first approval. OIRA grants approval for a maximum of 3 years and the collection must be renewed every three years. The same OMB Control Number is used for each review of the ICR.
: OMB Control Numbers are formatted NNNN-XXXX, where the NNNN is the agency/subagency code, and XXXX is a sequential number uniquely identifying the Collection within the agency/subagency's ICRs.
ICR/RCF Reference Number
The ICR/RCF Reference number uniquely identifies each ICR/RCF review. This number is assigned by OIRA system when an ICR/RCF is created.
: ICR Reference Numbers are formatted YYYYMM-NNNN-XXX where YYYYMM of the month of origin, NNNN is the Agency/Sub Agency code, and XXX is a 3 digit sequential number assigned per creation per month.
Agency Tracking Number
The Agency may provide an Agency Tracking Number as a way to trace or classify its own collections. Agency Tracking Number usage is specific to each agency and is not standardized across agencies. For instance, an agency without sub agency codes may use the Agency Tracking Number to identify ICRs to divisions, branches or individuals whereas another agency may used it cross reference their own internal agency tracking system.
