ACTION: The Small Business Administration (SBA) intends to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to reduce the approved collection of information for 8(a) Business Development (BD) Program applicants. The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, 44 U.S.C Chapter 35 required federal agencies to publish a notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed or changed collection of information before submission to OMB, and to allow 60 days for public comment in response to the notice. This notice complies with that requirement. DATES: Submit comments on or before January 19, 2016.

Rich, Management Analyst, 202–205– 7030, Curtis.Rich@sba.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 8(a) BD Program is designed to enhance the business development of small business concerns owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals whose ability to compete in the free enterprise system has been impaired due to diminished capital and credit opportunities as compared to others in the same or similar line of business. Historically, over 2,000 entrepreneurs apply for 8(a) BD Program certification each year. Each year approximately 1,500 applications are returned without processing or withdrawn because they are incomplete. In an effort to increase the 8(a) BD Program’s accessibility to socially and economically disadvantaged small business owners, SBA seeks to reduce the information collection and forms. The reduced collection of information is based directly on the 8(a) Program eligibility criteria in 13 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 124. SBA believes this initiative will reduce the administrative paperwork burden for 8(a) applicants while maintaining the integrity of the 8(a) BD Program. Solicitation of Public Comments SBA is requesting comments on (a) Whether the eliminated/reduced collection of information was necessary for the agency to properly perform its functions; (b) whether the burden estimates are accurate; (c) whether there are ways to further minimize the burden, including through the use of automated techniques or other forms of information technology; and (d) whether there are ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information.

    The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Public

Federal benefits. Section 7201 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act 
of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-508) further amended the Privacy Act regarding 
protections for such persons.
    The Privacy Act, as amended, regulates the use of computer matching

Boards of the participating Federal agencies;
