Retrieve Notice of Action (NOA) 09/09/2008
For the reasons provided below, the Office of Management and Budget disapproves the request to initiate this information collection: •The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) did not, as required by law under section 3507(a) of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), seek and evaluate public comment on this reporting requirement in advance of the adoption of the collection of information. Additionally the FCC has not: •per section 3506(c)(3)(A) of the PRA and 5 CFR 1320(5)(d)(1), demonstrated the practical utility of the information collected given--it is subject to potential change before the FCC can process it, the expected volume of submitted reports, the size of the staff assigned to analyze the information, and the non-standardized format the information will be submitted in; •per section 3506(c)(3)(C) of the PRA, demonstrated a reasonable effort has been made to reduce to the extent practical the burden placed on respondents due to a lack of sufficient clarify on how respondents are to satisfy compliance with this collection; and •per section 3506(c)(3)(H) of the PRA, demonstrated, given the minimal staff assigned to analyze and process this information, that the collection has been developed by an office that has planned and allocated resources for the efficient and effective management and use of the information collected.
