Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request


National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).




We have submitted a request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval to continue to collect information from people requesting researcher access to archival records. We invite you to comment on this proposed information collection.


OMB must receive written comments on or before April 5, 2021.


Send any comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection in writing to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain. You can find this particular information collection by selecting "Currently under 30-day Review-Open for Public Comments" or by using the search function.


Tamee Fechhelm, Paperwork Reduction Act Officer, by email at tamee.fechhelm@nara.gob or by telephone at 301.837.1694 with any requests for additional information.


Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), we invite the public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed information collections. We published a notice of proposed collection for this information collection on December 22, 2020 (85 FR 83624) and we received no comments. We are therefore submitting the described information collection to OMB for approval.

If you have comments or suggestions, they should address one or more of the following points: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for NARA to properly perform its functions; (b) our estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection and its accuracy; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information we collect; (d) ways we could minimize the burden on respondents of collecting the information, including through information technology; and (e) whether this collection affects small businesses.

In this notice, we solicit comments concerning the following information collection:
