soliciting comments concerning the following information collections:
    1. Title: Court Order Requirements.
    OMB number: 3095-0038.
    Agency form number: NA Form 13027.
    Type of review: Regular.
    Affected public: Veterans and Former Federal civilian employees, 
their authorized representatives, state and local governments, and 
businesses.
    Estimated number of respondents: 5,000.
    Estimated time per response: 15 minutes.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 1,250 hours.
    Abstract: The information collection is prescribed by 36 CFR 
1233.14. In accordance with rules issued by the Office of Personnel 
Management, the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) of the 
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) administers 
Official Personnel Folders (OPF) and Employee Medical Folders (EMF) of 
former Federal civilian employees. In accordance with rules issued by 
the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Transportation 
(DOT), the NPRC also administers military service records of veterans 
after discharge, retirement, and death, and the medical records of 
these veterans, current members of the Armed Forces, and dependents of 
Armed Forces personnel. The NA Form 13027, Court Order Requirements, is 
used to advise requesters of (1) the correct procedures to follow when 
requesting certified copies of records for use in civil litigation or 
criminal actions in courts of law and (2) the information to be 
provided so that records may be identified.
    2. OMB number: 3095-0039.
    Agency form number: NA Forms 13036, 13042, 13055, and 13075.
    Type of review: Regular.
    Affected public: Veterans, their authorized representatives, state 
and local governments, and businesses.
    Estimated number of respondents: 79,800.
    Estimated time per response: 5 minutes.
    Frequency of response: On occasion (when respondent wishes to 
request information from a military personnel, military medical, and 
dependent medical record).
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 6,650 hours.
    Abstract: The information collection is prescribed by 36 CFR 
1233.18. In accordance with rules issued by the Department of Defense 
(DOD) and the Department of Transportation (DOT, U.S. Coast Guard), the 
National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) of the National Archives and 
Records Administration (NARA) administers military personnel and 
medical records of veterans after discharge, retirement, and death. In 
addition, NPRC administers the medical records of dependents of service 
personnel. When veterans, dependents, and other authorized individuals 
request information from or copies of documents in military personnel, 
military medical, and dependent medical records, they must provide on 
forms or in letters certain information about the veteran and the 
nature of the request. A major fire at the NPRC on July 12, 1973, 
destroyed numerous military records. If individuals' requests involve 
records or information from records that may have been lost in the 
fire, requesters may be asked to complete NA Form 13075, Questionnaire 
about Military Service, or NA Form 13055, Request for Information 
Needed to Reconstruct Medical Data, so that NPRC staff can search 
alternative sources to reconstruct the requested information. 
Requesters who ask for medical records of dependents of service 
personnel and hospitalization records of military personnel are asked 
to complete NA Form 13042, Request for Information Needed to Locate 
Medical Records, so that NPRC staff can locate the desired records. 
Certain types of information contained in military personnel and 
medical records are restricted from disclosure unless the veteran 
provides a more specific release authorization than is normally 
required. Veterans are asked to complete NA Form 13036, Authorization 
for Release of Military Medical Patient Records, to authorize release 
to a third party of a restricted type of information found in the 
desired record.
