Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Review of a Revised 
Information Collection: (OMB Control No. 3206-0201; Federal Employees 
Health Benefits (FEHB) Open Season Express Interactive Voice Response 
(IVR) System)

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. 
L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of 
Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review of a revised 
information collection. This information collection, ``Federal 
Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Open Season Express Interactive Voice 
Response (IVR) System'' (OMB Control No. 3206-0201), and the Open 
Season Web site, Open Season Online, are used by retirees and 
survivors. They collect information for changing FEHB enrollments, 
collecting dependent and other insurance information for self and 
family enrollments, requesting plan brochures, requesting a change of 
address, requesting cancellation or suspension of FEHB benefits, asking 
to make payment to the Office of Personnel Management when the FEHB 
payment is greater than the monthly annuity amount, or for requesting 
FEHB plan accreditation and Customer Satisfaction Survey information.
    Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this information is 
necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Office of 
Personnel Management and whether it will have practical utility; 
whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of 
information is accurate and based on valid assumptions and methodology; 
and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate 
technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
    We receive approximately 215,000 responses per year to the IVR 
system and the online web. Each response takes approximately 10 minutes 
to complete. The annual burden is 35,833 hours.
