OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT


Submission for Review: Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) 
Application

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: 30-Day Notice and request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) offers the general 
public and other Federal agencies the opportunity to comment on a 
revised information collection request (ICR) 3206-0082, Presidential 
Management Fellows (PMF) Application. 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 on behalf of the Office of Management and 
Budget. The information collection was previously published in the 
Federal Register on June 28, 2012, at Volume 77 FR 38681 allowing for a 
60-day public comment period. There were 5 requests for the ICR; 2 
requests for the date of the application period; and 1 inquiring about 
the type of resume that would be accepted. One individual provided 
specific recommendations for edits to the questions and the way the 
information is being collected. We appreciate the suggestions and will 
consider the changes for the next iteration of the application; 
however, we don't believe the proposed changes would alter the 
estimated burden of the current application, or significantly improve 
the quality and clarity of the information collected. 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 the 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 November 1, 
2012. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.1.

ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR, with applicable supporting 
documentation, may be obtained by contacting the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th 
Street NW., Room 10235, Washington, DC 20503, Attention: OPM Desk 
Officer or sent via electronic mail to oira_submission@omg.eop.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A copy of this ICR, with applicable 
supporting documentation, may be obtained by contacting the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 
725 17th Street NW., Room 10235, Washington, DC 20503, Attention: OPM

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 13562, Recruiting and Hiring 
Students and Recent Graduates, and implementing regulations increased 
the applicant window of eligibility and removed the school nomination 
requirement. Students seeking advanced degrees and those who completed 
an advanced degree within the previous two years will use the 
application to apply for the Presidential Management Fellows Program. 
They will no longer be required to have a school nomination. OPM 
expects this will increase the number of applicants from years past.
