If this information were not collected from the public, DOI and the other Federal agencies required to provide GFH would be required to use professional appraisals of open market rental costs for GFH, again, in accordance with OMB Circular A–45, but at an increased cost to the taxpayer. II. Data (1) Title: Private Rental Survey. OMB Control Number: 1084–0033. Current Expiration Date: September 30, 2013. Type of Review: Information Collection Renewal. Affected Entities: Individuals or households, businesses and other for profit institutions. Estimated annual number of respondents: OS–2000: 3,841; OS–2001: 200; Total: 4,041. Frequency of responses: Once per respondent every fourth year. Note: Three or four of 15 total survey regions are surveyed every year. Therefore a respondent may be potentially be surveyed every fourth year, if an individual respondent lives in the same unit and the exact same unit happens to be surveyed again four years later. In addition, if an individual business is a significant rental property owner or rental property manager in the community they may provide multiple responses in the same survey. (2) Annual reporting and recordkeeping burden: Estimated burden per response: OS–2000: 8 minutes; OS–2001: 6 minutes. Average number of estimated annual responses: OS–2000: 3,804 (average); OS–2001: 200 (average). Total estimated average annual reporting: OS–2000: 507 hours; OS– 2001: 20 hours, Total: 527 hours. (3) Description of the need and use of the information: This information collection provides the data that enables DOI to determine open market rental costs for GFH.
