In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for clearance to revise an information collection. Combined Federal Campaign Applications, OMB Control No. 3206-0269, which include OPM Forms 1647-A, -B, and -E, are used to review the eligibility of national, international, and local charitable organizations and Department of Defense morale, welfare, and recreation (MWR)/Family Support and Youth Activities/Programs (FSYA/FSYP) organizations that wish to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign. The proposed revisions reflect changes in eligibility guidance from the Office of Personnel Management. On March 12, 2019, we published a 60-day notice and request for comments. We received two comments: One recommending changes to questions regarding volunteerism (which would require additional burden on CFC-participating charities); and one requesting changes which have already been implemented or which go beyond the authority of OPM. There are, therefore, no recommended revisions to this ICR. We estimate 10,000 responses to this information collection annually. Each form takes approximately two hours to complete. The annual estimated burden is 20,000 hours.
