The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is particularly interested in comments that: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SF 87 is a fingerprint card, which is utilized to conduct a national criminal history check, which is a component of a background investigation. The SF 87 is PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6357 completed by applicants who are under consideration for Federal employment; by Federal employees, to determine whether they should be retained in such employment; by individuals being considered to perform work for the Federal Government under a Government contract or to continue such work; and by persons seeking longterm access to Federal facilities and systems. The SF 87 fingerprint chart is used in background investigations to help establish facts required to determine, for example, whether the subject of the investigation should be adjudicated to be eligible for logical and physical access to Government facilities and systems; suitable or fit for Federal employment; fit to perform work on behalf of the Federal Government under a Government contract; eligible to hold a position that is sensitive for national security reasons; or eligible for access to classified information. The SF 87 form is utilized only when a hardcopy fingerprint chart must be obtained, as opposed to the electronic collection of fingerprints. Modifications to the SF 87 include the addition of four blocks, Submitting Office Number (SON), Security Office Identifier (SOI), IntraGovernment Payment, Collection Code (IPAC) and Miscellaneous Identification Number (MNU) and the removal of the printed ORI number, USOPMOOOZ– FIPC Boyer, PA. The addition of the SON, SOI, IPAC and MNU blocks support billing and processing enhancements. The printed ORI number is no longer necessary because SF 87 forms are converted to images and transmitted to the FBI electronically. The Public Burden Statement address is updated to state U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Federal Investigative Services, Attn: OMB Number 3206– 0150, 1900 E Street NW., Washington, DC 20415. Because OPM is eliminating the printed ORI number, a separate collection that does not have an ORI number, the SF 87A is redundant. Accordingly, OPM is eliminating the SF 87A form. Due to the SF 87 form’s small size and the fact that it may be maintained in multiple systems of records, it does not list all potentially applicable routine uses under the Privacy Act. Accordingly 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(3)(C) requires that an agency issuing the SF 87 form must also give the subject a copy of the routine uses for the applicable system of records. It is estimated that 210,533 SF 87 forms are provided to individuals annually. The SF 87 takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. E:\FR\FM\30JAN1.SGM 30JAN1 6358 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 20 / Wednesday, January 30, 2013 / Notices The estimated annual burden is 17,544 hours. The 2009 OMB Terms of Clearance required an accurate reflection of the number of people who incur a cost for submitting their fingerprints to federal agencies and the total cost per annum. Calculations derived from Federal agency survey data and OPM data estimated that, at a maximum, 52,633 forms are submitted to federal agencies annually by individuals, who may incur a financial burden to obtain fingerprints at local police departments, when security offices are unable to conduct the fingerprinting. The estimated individual financial burden is $17.00. The estimated maximum annual financial burden is $894,765. The 60 day Federal Register Notice was published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 (Federal Register Notices/Vol. 77, Number 228, pages 70848–70849) as required by 5 CFR part 1320, affording the public an opportunity to comment on the form.

In the Statement of Supporting Justification, Dennis R.

The Postal Service represents that the contract is consistent with 39 U.S.C. 3633(a). Id. Attachment D at 1. The Postal Service filed much of the supporting materials, including the related contract, under seal. Id. Attachment F.

This information includes the price structure, underlying costs and assumptions, pricing formulas, information relevant to the customer’s mailing profile, and cost coverage projections. Id.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SF 87 is a fingerprint card, which is 
utilized to conduct a national criminal history check, which is a 
component of a background investigation. The SF 87 is completed by 
applicants who are under consideration for Federal employment; by 
Federal employees, to determine whether they should be retained in such 
employment; by individuals being considered to perform work for the 
Federal Government under a Government contract or to continue such 
work; and by persons seeking long-term access to Federal facilities and 
systems. The SF 87 fingerprint chart is used in background 
investigations to help establish facts required to determine, for 
example, whether the subject of the investigation should be adjudicated 
to be eligible for logical and physical access to Government facilities 
and systems; suitable or fit for Federal employment; fit to perform 
work on behalf of the Federal Government under a Government contract; 
eligible to hold a position that is sensitive for national security 
reasons; or eligible for access to classified information. The SF 87 
form is utilized only when a hardcopy fingerprint chart must be 
obtained, as opposed to the electronic collection of fingerprints. 
Modifications to the SF 87 include the addition of four blocks, 
Submitting Office Number (SON), Security Office Identifier (SOI), 
Intra-Government Payment, Collection Code (IPAC) and Miscellaneous 
Identification Number (MNU) and the removal of the printed ORI number, 
USOPMOOOZ-FIPC Boyer, PA. The addition of the SON, SOI, IPAC and MNU 
blocks support billing and processing enhancements. The printed ORI 
number is no longer necessary because SF 87 forms are converted to 
images and transmitted to the FBI electronically. The Public Burden 
Statement address is updated to state U.S. Office of Personnel 
Management, Federal Investigative Services, Attn: OMB Number 3206-0150, 
1900 E Street NW., Washington, DC 20415.
    Because OPM is eliminating the printed ORI number, a separate 
collection that does not have an ORI number, the SF 87A is redundant. 
Accordingly, OPM is eliminating the SF 87A form.
    Due to the SF 87 form's small size and the fact that it may be 
maintained in multiple systems of records, it does not list all 
potentially applicable routine uses under the Privacy Act. Accordingly 
5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(3)(C) requires that an agency issuing the SF 87 form 
must also give the subject a copy of the routine uses for the 
applicable system of records.
    It is estimated that 210,533 SF 87 forms are provided to 
individuals annually. The SF 87 takes approximately 5 minutes to 
complete.

[[Page 6358]]

The estimated annual burden is 17,544 hours.
    The 2009 OMB Terms of Clearance required an accurate reflection of 
the number of people who incur a cost for submitting their fingerprints 
to federal agencies and the total cost per annum. Calculations derived 
from Federal agency survey data and OPM data estimated that, at a 
maximum, 52,633 forms are submitted to federal agencies annually by 
individuals, who may incur a financial burden to obtain fingerprints at 
local police departments, when security offices are unable to conduct 
the fingerprinting. The estimated individual financial burden is 
$17.00. The estimated maximum annual financial burden is $894,765.
    The 60 day Federal Register Notice was published in the Federal 
Register on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 (Federal Register Notices/Vol. 
77, Number 228, pages 70848-70849) as required by 5 CFR part 1320, 
affording the public an opportunity to comment on the form.
