NARA published a notice of proposed collection for this information collection on February 18, 2015 (80 FR 8700 and 8701). We received one comment, noting that the word ‘‘qualified’’ (used twice on the bottom of page 1 of NA Form 17003) was used to describe an auditor’s opinion. The term ‘‘qualified’’ was replaced with the word ‘‘modified’’ a couple of years ago during the accounting profession’s update of standards. As a result of this comment, NARA changed the two instances of the word ‘‘qualified’’ with the word ‘‘modified’’ on NA Form 17003. We have now submitted the described information collection to OMB for approval.
