Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, 
the following proposal for collection of information for emergency 
clearance under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act.

DATES: Consideration will be given to all comments received by November 
13, 2015.


    Title and OMB Number: Collection of Required Data Elements to 
Verify Eligibility; OMB Control Number 0704-XXXX.
    Type of Request: New.
    Number of Respondents: 19,000,000.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Annual Responses: 19,000,000.
    Average Burden per Response: 8 minutes and 23 seconds.
    Annual Burden Hours: 2,650,000.
    Needs and Uses: The information collected will be used only to

[[Page 61797]]

impacted'' by this incident. Once the minimally required information 
has been input into the OPM secure portal, it will be compared to an 
electronic master file and verification will be accomplished 
electronically. After the Government has validated the individual's 
status, the DoD Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) will generate and 
mail a response letter. This letter will either confirm eligibility and 
contain a PIN for impacted individuals, or confirm that the individual 
was not impacted by this cybersecurity incident.
    The DoD DMDC will retain the information collected in a ``holding 
file'' until the contract end of performance on December 31, 2018. This 
will allow individuals who lose or never receive their PINs to use the 
portal and helpdesk to determine eligibility throughout the entire 
contract period.
    Affected Public: Individuals or Households.
    Frequency: On Occasion.
    Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
    Omb Desk Officer: Ms. Jasmeet Seehra.
