Agency Information Collection Activities: Extension of Information Collection; Comment Request
In December 2011, the ODNI accepted responsibility from the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) to manage the Standard Form 714, Financial Disclosure Report, in accordance with the responsibilities assigned to the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) as the Security Executive Agent. The Standard Form 714 is used across the U.S. Government for assessing an individual's eligibility (or continued eligibility) for access to certain types of classified information. This standard form must be completed and submitted as a condition for access to designated classified information, along with a favorably adjudicated personnel security background investigation or reinvestigation. In accordance with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) process for Federal agency adherence to the Paperwork Reduction Act, this 30-day Notice is to advise of ODNI's intent to now submit Standard Form 714 to OMB for review and approval and to invite comments from the general public and other Federal Agencies. As the ODNI proposes no changes to Standard Form 714 and its instructions at this time, the ODNI is seeking to extend the current version of the Standard Form 714 for three additional years from its scheduled expiration on 31 August 2018. On 12 February 2018, the Federal Register published a Notice inviting the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on the ODNI's intent to extend the use of the current version of Standard Form 714 for an additional three years. The Notice resulted in one comment/suggestion from the general public related to ``ways, including the use of information technology, to minimize the burden of the collection of information on all respondents to the Standard Form 714.'' ODNI responded directly to the individual thanking them for their suggestion and stating that ODNI will take the suggestion into consideration.
