This information collection, ‘‘Report of Medical Examination of Person Electing Survivor Benefits Under the Civil Service Retirement System’’ (OMB Control No. 3206–0162; OPM Form 1530), is used to collect information regarding an annuitant’s health so that OPM can determine whether the insurable interest survivor benefit election can be allowed. Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Office of Personnel Management, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Approximately 500 OPM Form 1530 will be completed annually. We estimate it takes approximately 90 minutes to complete the form. The annual estimated burden is 750 hours.

Introduction On May 27, 2010, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that it has entered into an additional Global Expedited Package Services 2 (GEPS 2) contract.1 The Postal Service believes the instant contract is functionally equivalent to previously submitted GEPS 2 contracts, and is supported by Governors’ Decision No. 08-7, attached to the Notice and originally filed in Docket No. CP2008-4. Id. at 1, Attachment 3. The Notice also explains that Order No. 86, which established 1 Notice of United States Postal Service Filing of Functionally Equivalent Global Expedited Package Services 2 Negotiated Service Agreement and Application for Non-Public Treatment of Materials Filed Under Seal, May 27, 2010 (Notice). PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 GEPS 1 as a product, also authorized functionally equivalent agreements to be included within the product, provided that they meet the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633. Id. at 1. In Order No. 290, the Commission approved the GEPS 2 product.2 The instant contract. The Postal Service filed the instant contract pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5. In addition, the Postal Service contends that the contract is in accordance with Order No. 86. The term of the contract is one year from the date the Postal Service notifies the customer that all necessary regulatory approvals have been received.

The Notice advances reasons why the instant GEPS 2 contract fits within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GEPS 2. The Postal Service identifies customer-specific information, general contract terms, and other differences that distinguish the instant contract from the baseline GEPS 2 agreement, all of which are highlighted in the Notice. Id. at 3-6. The Postal Service contends that the instant contract is functionally equivalent to previously filed GEPS contracts and is substantially similar to that in Docket No. CP2009-50 in terms of the product being offered, the market in which it is offered, and its cost characteristics. Id. at 2-3. See also id. at 6 (‘‘[T]he relevant cost and market characteristics are similar, if not the same for these five contracts and the baseline GEPS 2 contract’’).
