OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT


Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request for Revision of a 
Currently Approved Expiring Information Collection: SF 87 and SF 87A

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. 
L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of 
Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget a request for revision of a currently approved information 
collection for Standard Forms 87 and 87A, Fingerprint Charts. These 
forms are used to obtain fingerprint and other data needed to check the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) fingerprint files. Such checks 
are required by Executive Order 10450, Security Requirements for 
Government Employment, issued April 27, 1953, and required or 
authorized under other authorities, on applicants to and employees of 
the Federal government. The SF 87 is used by OPM and the SF 87A is used 
by other agencies having a special agreement with OPM and the FBI.
    Approximately 225,000 SF 87 and SF 87A's are completed annually. 
This is a revised figure which reflects the impact of automation on the 
processing of fingerprint checks. We estimate that it takes 
approximately five minutes to complete each form. The annual burden is 
18,750 hours.
