The OWCP is responsible for administering the War Hazards Compensation Act (WHCA) (42 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.). WHCA section 1704(a) provides that an insurance carrier or self-insured who has paid workers’ compensation benefits to or on account of any person for a war-risk hazard may seek reimbursement for benefits paid (plus expenses) out of the Federal Employees’ Compensation Fund. See also 5 U.S.C. 8147. Insurance carriers and the self-insured file a Claim for Reimbursement of Benefit Payments and Claims Expense under the War Hazards Compensation Act, Form CA–278, to request reimbursement. Regulations implementing the WHCA permit the OWCP to collect the information needed to consider an insurance carrier’s or self-insured’s reimbursement request. See 20 CFR 61.101 and 61.104. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because the OWCP has revised Form CA–278 to include an accommodation statement informing claimants with mental or physical limitations to contact the OWCP, Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation if they need further assistance with the claims process. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1240–0006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OWCP is responsible for administering 
the War Hazards Compensation Act (WHCA) (42 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.). WHCA 
section 1704(a) provides that an insurance carrier or self-insured who 
has paid workers' compensation benefits to or on account of any person 
for a war-risk hazard may seek reimbursement for benefits paid (plus 
expenses) out of the Federal Employees' Compensation Fund. See also 5 
U.S.C. 8147.
    Insurance carriers and the self-insured file a Claim for 
Reimbursement of Benefit Payments and Claims Expense under the War 
Hazards Compensation Act, Form CA-278, to request reimbursement. 
Regulations implementing the WHCA permit the OWCP to collect the 
information needed to consider an insurance carrier's or self-insured's 
reimbursement request. See 20 CFR 61.101 and 61.104. This ICR has been 
classified as a revision, because the OWCP has revised Form CA-278 to 
include an accommodation statement informing claimants with mental or 
physical limitations to contact the OWCP, Division of Federal 
Employees' Compensation if they need further assistance with the claims 
process.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1240-0006. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on October 31, 2013; however, it should be noted that existing 
information

[[Page 64537]]

collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month 
extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take 
effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about 
this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on 
July 5, 2013 (78 FR 40514).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240-0006. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     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;
     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;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
