Agency Information Collection Extension
The EIA, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, intends to extend for three years, Form NWPA-830G ``Appendix G Standard Remittance Advice for Payment of Fees (including Annex A to Appendix G),'' with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) of 1982 required that the DOE enter into Standard Contracts with all generators or owners of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste of domestic origin. Form NWPA- 830G is part of the Standard Contract for Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and/or High-Level Radioactive Waste. Generators and owners of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste of domestic origin pay fees into the nuclear waste fund based on net electricity generated and sold as defined in the Standard Contract. Together, forms ``Appendix G'' and ``Annex A to Appendix G'' are commonly referred to as Remittance Advice (RA) forms. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) 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; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
