The form reflects the requirements of the Ethics in Government Act, subsequent amendments pursuant to the STOCK Act, and OGE’s implementing regulations that must be met by a person before access can be granted. These requirements include the address of the requester, as well as any other person on whose behalf a record is sought, and acknowledgement that the requester is aware of the prohibited uses of executive branch public disclosure financial reports. See 5 U.S.C. appendix 105(b) and (c) and 402 (b)(1) and 5 CFR 2634.603(c) and (f). Executive branch departments and agencies are encouraged to utilize the OGE Form 201 for individuals seeking access to public financial disclosure reports and other covered documents. OGE permits departments and agencies to use or develop their own forms as long as the forms collect and provide all of the required information. OGE is proposing modifications to the automated version of the OGE Form 201, available only through the OGE Web site at www.oge.gov. Initially launched in March 2012, the automated version of the access form originally enabled a requestor to obtain immediately upon Web site submission of the completed form, those financial disclosure reports of individuals who have been nominated by the President to executive branch positions requiring Senate confirmation. OGE recently modified the technological process used to provide the information and no longer allows requesters to immediately download reports upon submission of the automated OGE Form 201. Instead, the forms are first reviewed by an OGE employee for completeness before the information is sent to the requester either by email or mail, according to the requester’s preference. Adding this step helps ensure that the requirements of section 105(b) of the Ethics in Government Act are met before public financial disclosure reports are released. Because of this change in procedure, a requester using the automated OGE Form 201 now has the option of either providing a mailing address including street, city, state, and country information (as was previously required) or providing an email address plus city, state, and country information. Depending on which information the requester chooses to PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70113 provide, the requested public financial disclosure reports will be either emailed or mailed to the requester. This change will not affect the estimated time of response to complete the form. OGE also intends to update the maximum civil monetary penalty for improperly obtaining or using a public financial disclosure report on both the automated and nonautomated versions of the form, in accordance with 5 CFR 2634.703. Request for Comments: OGE is publishing this first round notice of its intent to request paperwork clearance for a proposed modified OGE Form 201 Ethics Act Access Form. Agency and public comment is invited specifically on the need for and practical utility of this information collection, the accuracy of OGE’s burden estimate, the enhancement of quality, utility and clarity of the information collected, and the minimization of burden (including the use of information technology).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Request to Inspect or Receive Copies of Executive Branch 
Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Reports or Other Covered Records.
    Agency Form Number: OGE Form 201.
    OMB Control Number: 3209-0002.
    Type of Information Collection: Extension with modifications of a 
currently approved collection.
    Type of Review Request: Regular.
    Respondents: Individuals requesting access to executive branch

    Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 1003.

    Abstract: The OGE Form 201 collects information from, and provides 
certain information to, persons who seek access to OGE Form 278 Public 
Financial Disclosure Reports, including OGE Form 278-T Periodic 
Transaction Reports, and other covered records. The form reflects the 
requirements of the Ethics in Government Act, subsequent amendments 
pursuant to the STOCK Act, and OGE's implementing regulations that must 
be met by a person before access can be granted. These requirements 
include the address of the requester, as well as any other person on 
whose behalf a record is sought, and acknowledgement that the requester 
is aware of the prohibited uses of executive branch public disclosure 
financial reports. See 5 U.S.C. appendix 105(b) and (c) and 402 (b)(1) 
and 5 CFR 2634.603(c) and (f). Executive branch departments and 
agencies are encouraged to utilize the OGE Form 201 for individuals 
seeking access to public financial disclosure reports and other covered 
documents. OGE permits departments and agencies to use or develop their 
own forms as long as the forms collect and provide all of the required 
information.
    OGE is proposing modifications to the automated version of the OGE 
Form 201, available only through the OGE Web site at www.oge.gov. 
Initially launched in March 2012, the automated version of the access 
form originally enabled a requestor to obtain immediately upon Web site 
submission of the completed form, those financial disclosure reports of 
individuals who have been nominated by the President to executive 
branch positions requiring Senate confirmation. OGE recently modified 
the technological process used to provide the information and no longer 
allows requesters to immediately download reports upon submission of 
the automated OGE Form 201. Instead, the forms are first reviewed by an 
OGE employee for completeness before the information is sent to the 
requester either by email or mail, according to the requester's 
preference. Adding this step helps ensure that the requirements of 
section 105(b) of the Ethics in Government Act are met before public 
financial disclosure reports are released. Because of this change in 
procedure, a requester using the automated OGE Form 201 now has the 
option of either providing a mailing address including street, city, 
state, and country information (as was previously required) or 
providing an email address plus city, state, and country information. 
Depending on which information the requester chooses to provide, the 
requested public financial disclosure reports will be either emailed or 
mailed to the requester. This change will not affect the estimated time 
of response to complete the form.
    OGE also intends to update the maximum civil monetary penalty for 
improperly obtaining or using a public financial disclosure report on 
both the automated and nonautomated versions of the form, in accordance 
with 5 CFR 2634.703.
    Request for Comments: OGE is publishing this first round notice of 
its intent to request paperwork clearance for a proposed modified OGE 
Form 201 Ethics Act Access Form. Agency and public comment is invited 
specifically on the need for and practical utility of this information 
collection, the accuracy of OGE's burden estimate, the enhancement of 
quality, utility and clarity of the information collected, and the 
minimization of burden (including the use of information technology). 
Comments received in response to this notice will be summarized for, 
and may be included with, the OGE request for extension of OMB 
paperwork approval. The comments will also become a matter of public 
record.

    Approved: September 30, 2016.
