The Federal Communications Commission (Commission) is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a revision to a currently approved collection. The currently approved collection contains information collection requirements that apply generally to all applicants seeking to participate in competitive bidding for universal service support. The currently approved collection also contains information collection requirements that apply specifically to applicants seeking to participate in competitive bidding for Mobility Fund Phase I and Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I support. Because Mobility Fund Phase I and Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I support has been awarded, the Commission requests that the currently approved information collection be modified to remove the information collection requirements that apply specifically to applicants seeking to participate in competitive bidding for Mobility Fund Phase I and Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I support and the associated FCC Form 180 used by entities applying to participate in auctions for Mobility Fund Phase I and Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I support. The Commission requests that the currently approved information collection be modified to retain only the information collection requirements that apply generally to all applicants seeking to participate in competitive bidding for universal service support. The Commission also requests that the title of this information collection be changed to “Section 1.21001, Participation in Competitive Bidding for Support; Section 1.21002, Prohibition of Certain Communications During the Competitive Bidding Process” to reflect the revised information collection.

The Commission is requesting an increase in annual burdens for the revised collection. The currently approved collection requires a revision to remove the information collections requirements that apply specifically to applicants seeking to participate in competitive bidding for Mobility Fund Phase I and Tribal Mobility Fund Phase I support and to retain only the information collection requirements that apply generally to all applicants seeking to participate in competitive bidding for universal service support. While the Commission is requesting the removal of information collection requirements that are no longer needed for this collection, it is not requesting a decrease in annual burdens for these removals. The reason that there will not be a decrease in the burdens for the removed information collection requirements is because the retained information collection requirements will continue to apply to the same estimated number of respondents (150) and result in the same estimated number of annual responses (150). In addition, the removed information collection requirements will not substantially decrease the estimated average amount of time for respondents to comply with the requirements, resulting in the same estimated annual burden hours (225). The Commission is instead requesting an increase in respondents, annual responses, and annual burdens because it believes that the retained information collections will apply to a broader group of respondents. Therefore, the Commission has adjustments/increases to this collection as follows: increase the total number of respondents from 150 to 750 (+600), increase the annual number of responses from 150 to 750 (+600), and increase the annual burden hours from 225 to 1,125 (+900). There are no program changes to this collection.
