be collected; and
    4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OPM mails the INV 10 questionnaire to a 
random sampling of record and personal sources contacted during 
background investigations when investigators have performed fieldwork. 
The INV 10 is used as a quality control instrument designed to ensure 
the accuracy and integrity of the investigative product, as it inquires 
of the sources about the investigative procedure employed by the 
investigator, the investigator's professionalism, and the information 
discussed and reported. In addition to the preformatted response 
options, OPM invites the recipients to respond with any other relevant 
comments or suggestions. It is estimated that 63,869 individuals will 
respond annually. The INV 10 takes approximately 6 minutes to complete. 
The estimated annual burden is 6,387 hours.

U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
