(These are not toll-free numbers.). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EEOC’s Demographic Information on Federal Job Applicants form (OMB No. 3046–0046) is intended for use by federal agencies in gathering data on the race, ethnicity, sex, and disability status of job applicants. This form is used by the EEOC and other agencies to gauge progress and trends over time with respect to equal employment opportunity goals. Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, and OMB regulation 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), the Commission sought public comment on extending its form without change through a 60-day notice published October 20, 2016. Comments were invited on whether this collection would continue to enable it to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed data collection tool will have practical utility by enabling a federal agency to determine whether recruitment activities are effectively reaching all segments of the relevant labor pool in compliance with the laws enforced by the Commission and whether the agency’s selection procedures allow all applicants to compete on a level playing field regardless of race, national origin, sex or disability status; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on applicants for federal employees who choose to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 May 01, 2020 Jkt 250001 collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. One anonymous comment in support of this information collection was received. Overview of This Information Collection Collection Title: Demographic Information on Federal Job Applicants. OMB Control No.: 3046–0046. Description of Affected Public: Individuals submitting applications for federal employment. Number of Annual Responses: 5,042. Estimated Time per Response: 3 minutes. Total Annual Burden Hours: 252.1 Annual Federal Cost: None. Abstract: Under section 717 of Title VII and 501 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Commission is charged with reviewing and approving federal agencies plans to affirmatively address potential discrimination before it occurs. Pursuant to such oversight responsibilities, the Commission has established systems to monitor compliance with Title VII and the Rehabilitation Act by requiring federal agencies to evaluate their employment practices through the collection and analysis of data on the race, national origin, sex and disability status of applicants for both permanent and temporary employment. Several federal agencies (or components of such agencies) have previously obtained separate OMB approval for the use of forms collecting data on the race, national origin, sex, and disability status of applicants. In order to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort and a proliferation of forms, the EEOC seeks an extension of the approval of a common form to be used by all federal agencies. Response by applicants is optional. The information obtained will be used by federal agencies only for evaluating whether an agency’s recruitment activities are effectively reaching all segments of the relevant labor pool and whether the agency’s selection procedures allow all applicants to compete on a level playing field regardless of race, national origin, sex, or disability status. The voluntary responses are treated in a highly confidential manner and play no part in the job selection process. The information is not provided to any panel rating the applications, to selecting officials, to anyone who can affect the 1 This total is calculated as follows: 5,042 annual responses × 3 minutes per response = 15,126 minutes. 15,126/60 = 252 hours. PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26467 application, or to the public. Rather, the information is used in summary form to determine trends over many selections within a given occupational or organization area. No information from the form is entered into an official personnel file. Burden Statement: The EEOC continues to estimate that an applicant is able to complete the form in approximately 3 minutes. Applicants have continued to predominantly use online application systems, which require only pointing and clicking on the selected responses to respond to the six questions regarding basic demographic information. For at least the last decade, EEOC has not received any comments questioning the estimated 3-minute completion time. Based on recent experience, we expect that 5,042 applicants will choose to complete the form for vacancies at EEOC annually. Thus, we estimate the average annual burden to be: 252 hours. Over the course of the requested three-year approval period (2020–2023) EEOC estimates the applicant burden at 756 hours. Once OMB approves the use of this common form, federal agencies may request OMB approval to use this common form without having to publish notices and request public comments for 60 and 30 days. Each agency must account for the burden associated with their use of the common form. For the Commission. Janet L. Dhillon, Chair.

Overview of This Information Collection

    Collection Title: Demographic Information on Federal Job 
Applicants.
    OMB Control No.: 3046-0046.
    Description of Affected Public: Individuals submitting applications 
for federal employment.
    Number of Annual Responses: 5,042.
    Estimated Time per Response: 3 minutes.
    Total Annual Burden Hours: 252.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This total is calculated as follows: 5,042 annual responses 
x 3 minutes per response = 15,126 minutes. 15,126/60 = 252 hours.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Annual Federal Cost: None.
    Abstract: Under section 717 of Title VII and 501 of the 
Rehabilitation Act, the Commission is charged with reviewing and 
approving federal agencies plans to affirmatively address potential 
discrimination before it occurs. Pursuant to such oversight 
responsibilities, the Commission has established systems to monitor 
compliance with Title VII and the Rehabilitation Act by requiring 
federal agencies to evaluate their employment practices through the 
collection and analysis of data on the race, national origin, sex and 
disability status of applicants for both permanent and temporary 
employment.
    Several federal agencies (or components of such agencies) have 
previously obtained separate OMB approval for the use of forms 
collecting data on the race, national origin, sex, and disability 
status of applicants. In order to avoid unnecessary duplication of 
effort and a proliferation of forms, the EEOC seeks an extension of the 
approval of a common form to be used by all federal agencies.
    Response by applicants is optional. The information obtained will 
be used by federal agencies only for evaluating whether an agency's 
recruitment activities are effectively reaching all segments of the 
relevant labor pool and whether the agency's selection procedures allow 
all applicants to compete on a level playing field regardless of race, 
national origin, sex, or disability status. The voluntary responses are 
treated in a highly confidential manner and play no part in the job 
selection process. The information is not provided to any panel rating 
the applications, to selecting officials, to anyone who can affect the 
application, or to the public. Rather, the information is used in 
summary form to determine trends over many selections within a given 
occupational or organization area. No information from the form is 
entered into an official personnel file.
    Burden Statement: The EEOC continues to estimate that an applicant 
is able to complete the form in approximately 3 minutes. Applicants 
have continued to predominantly use online application systems, which 
require only pointing and clicking on the selected responses to respond 
to the six questions regarding basic demographic information. For at 
least the last decade, EEOC has not received any comments questioning 
the estimated 3-minute completion time. Based on recent experience, we 
expect that 5,042 applicants will choose to complete the form for 
vacancies at EEOC annually.
    Thus, we estimate the average annual burden to be: 252 hours. Over 
the course of the requested three-year approval period (2020-2023) EEOC 
estimates the applicant burden at 756 hours.
    Once OMB approves the use of this common form, federal agencies may 
request OMB approval to use this common form without having to publish 
notices and request public comments for 60 and 30 days. Each agency 
must account for the burden associated with their use of the common 
form.

    For the Commission.

Chair.
