OMB has added some additional functionality which we hope will help users with our site. We have added an ICR Dashboard. It displays a graphical representation of the Information Collection packages currently under review at OIRA. The ICRs can be viewed by agency, type of request, relationship to rulemaking, and length of review. Each view also provides a complete listing of the individual ICRs meeting the selected criteria.
For more information on the Paperwork Reduction Act and OIRA’s role in reviewing information collections, refer to the FAQs.
We hope this will help users find information related to Information Collections. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts on these changes or any other questions you have on the site.
