The representative is entitled to request a fee for services under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act and under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act; however, the OWCP must approve the fee before the representative can make any demand for payment. This ICR sets forth the criteria for the information the respondent must present in order to have the fee approved by the OWCP. The information collection does not impose a particular form or format for the application, provided all required information is presented. The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act and Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act authorize this information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8127 and 33 U.S.C. 928.

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 1240–0049. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements.
