  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 712 1,709 0 0 -997 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 2,136 1,709 0 0 427 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 56 135 0 0 -79 0
The change (increase) in burden is an ADJUSTMENT due to a decrease in the estimated annual number of responses, but an increase in the number of hours required to process each form. Specifically, the reporting and recordkeeping requirements and methodology for calculating burden remain unchanged, but the processing time for Coast Guard personnel increased from the previous reported 1.4 hours per application to a more accurate 2.0 hours per application. These numbers were verified through a query of all Coast Guard District offices for applications received in CY 2020. In addition, the estimated equivalent government paygrade for persons submitting the reports as well as the estimated paygrade for the Coast Guard District personnel processing the forms has been reduced from a GS-12 to a GS-11. This more accurately captures the average paygrade for the personnel in these positions and resulted in lower per hour costs. The overall result was a 427 hour increase in hours requested over the previous 1,709 OMB inventory, with a total annualized cost reduction of $84K over the previous $230K OMB inventory.
