As a result, we think an estimate of 160 hours per complaint is a more realistic average of the burden per filing. The reporting requirements have not been revised. 11 $70.50/hour is the average hourly cost of a FERC employee (salary plus benefits) for Fiscal Year 2014. We assume that the respondents to this collection are similarly situated in terms of salary plus benefits. Average cost per response = Average burden hours per response [160 hours] * $70.50 per hour. 12 Total annual burden hours = Total number of responses [62] * Average burden hours per response [160]. 13 Total annual cost = Total annual burden hours [9,920] * hourly cost [$70.50].
