SUMMARY: The Retirement Services, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) 
offers the general public and other Federal agencies the opportunity to 
comment on a revised information collection request (ICR) 3206-0230, 
Life Insurance Election. As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. chapter 35) as amended by the Clinger-
Cohen Act (Pub. L. 104-106), OPM is soliciting comments for this 
collection. The information collection was previously published in the 
Federal Register on April 5, 2011 at Volume 76 FR 18810 allowing for a 
60-day public comment period. No comments were received for this 
information collection. The purpose of this notice is to allow an 
additional 30 days for public comments. The Office of Management and 
Budget is particularly interested in comments that:
    1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.

DATES: Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until July 22, 
2011. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.1.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on 
the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, 
NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: Desk Officer for the Office of 
Personnel Management or sent via electronic mail to oira_submission@omb.eop.gov or faxed to (202) 395-6974.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Standard Form 2817 is used by Federal 
employees and assignees (those who have acquired control of an 
employee/annuitant's coverage through an assignment or ``transfer'' of 
the ownership of the life insurance). Clearance of this form for use by 
active Federal employees is not required according to the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (Pub. L. 98-615). The Public Burden Statement meets the 
requirements of 5 CFR 1320.8(b)(3). Therefore, only the use of this 
form by assignees, i.e. members of the public, is subject to the 
Paperwork Reduction Act.
