Individuals enter their information into EODonline one time and the system populates the required EOD forms. Previously, the same information was provided by the individual multiple times during their manual completion of the paper EOD forms. The time required to complete the EODonline process is significantly less than the time needed to complete the paper EOD forms. As stated above, the information being collected is required in order to employ individuals in the Federal government and to provide them with the benefits that are afforded Government employees. Information collected includes the new hire candidate’s Social Security Number, Date of Birth, Home Address, financial institution information, as well as other personal information. Collecting this information through EODonline substantially reduces the time new candidates dedicate to this process because they are only required to enter the information once and then the system populates all forms on which the information is required. Description of Data Collection Applicants who accept employment offers with TSA enter their information electronically one time during the hiring process using the EODonline system. Information collected includes the new hire candidate’s Social Security Number, Date of Birth, Home Address, financial institution information, as well as other personal information. Once all necessary information is collected, the candidate can view and/or print the forms in final version. Forms that do not require an original ink signature are signed electronically by the candidates. Forms requiring an original signature in ink are printed out by TSA personnel who conduct new employee orientation sessions. The hard copy forms are provided to the employees at orientation to review and sign. The annual respondent burden hours are estimated to be 10,400, based on an estimated one hour required per respondent to provide the required information and 10,400 annual respondents. This reduces the time to complete EOD paperwork by 50%. Respondents to this proposed information requirement are TSA (nonexecutive) job applicants who have accepted an offer of employment with TSA. Use of Results The time saved by utilizing EODonline allows employees to complete the EOD process more VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:36 Jul 17, 2008 Jkt 214001 expeditiously and accurately and thus begin to perform their TSA duties as soon as possible. TSA will use the results of EODonline usage to measure efficiencies (i.e., cost savings, operational efficiencies, accuracy of data) gained through implementation of the automated system—both on the part of new hire candidates (as applicable) and the agency.
