OMB supports the FCC efforts to streamline the mass media application and reporting requirements. As part of its rulemaking process, OMB requests that the FCC consult with the Internal Revenue Service regarding the use of taxpayer identification numbers and also examine Wireless Bureau's Universal Licensing System. OMB concurs with the FCC that, once the rulemaking is completed, individual OMB 83-I packages be submitted to document changes to each collection. Finally, OMB urges the FCC to work with industry, including groups representing industry, to adopt a plan for expeditious adoption of electronic filing, including the use of electronic signatures. Use of electronic filing should be phased in if possible. The rulemaking process should include an analysis of the benefits and costs of adopting mandatory electronic filing (iaw the PRA).
