RI 38-107 and RI 38-147

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: 30-Day Notice and request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Retirement Services, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) 
offers the general public and other federal agencies the opportunity to 
comment on an extension, without change, of a currently approved 
information collection request (ICR) 3206-0197, Verification of Who is 
Getting Payments. 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 July 22, 2011 at Volume 76 FR 44051 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 January 30, 
2012.

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.

supporting documentation, may be obtained by contacting the Office of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: RI 38-107, Verification of Who is Getting 
Payments, is designed for use by the Retirement Inspection Branch when 
OPM, for any reason, must verify that the entitled person is indeed 
receiving the monies payable. RI 38-147, Verification of Who is Getting 
Payments, collects the same information and is used by other groups 
within Retirement Operations. Failure to collect this information would 
cause OPM to pay monies absent the assurance of a correct payee.
