The EEOC announced on July 28 that it gave notice of its intention to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) its intent to submit the recordkeeping requirement in the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (UGESP) for a three-year extension without change under the Paperwork Reduction under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA). The EEOC invites comments that will enable the agency to:

  1. evaluate whether the 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 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 submission of responses.
