Agency Information Collection Extension
Document Number: 2014-19960
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-22
Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
Western Area Power Administration (Western), an agency within the Department of Energy (DOE), has submitted an extension to an existing Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, comment and approval, as required under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The ICR seeks a 3- year extension for Western's Applicant Profile Data form (APD), OMB Control No. 1910-5136. The ICR described below identifies the request, including the anticipated public burdens. The ICR is necessary for the proper performance of Western's functions. Western markets a limited amount of Federal power. Due to the high demand for Western's power and limited amount of available power, Western needs to be able to collect information under the ICR to evaluate who will receive an allocation. This public process only determines the information Western will collect in its ICR. The actual allocation of Federal power will be done through a separate process and is outside the scope of this notice.
