Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in respondent burden from the most recently approved ICR due to an adjustment of respondent labor hours. The previous ICR assumed that labor hours accounted for all technical, managerial, and clerical hours. To be consistent with the estimation methodology used in other ICRs, this ICR assumes that labor hours account for technical hours only. Clerical and managerial hours require additional time, and equal 10 and 5 percent of technical hours, respectively. This ICR updates these labor hours and their associated labor rates, resulting in an increase of total labor costs. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.
