This submission is to make a non-substantive change request to existing information collections pursuant to 44 U.S.C. § 3507. The Commission seeks to change the FCC Form 5640 and FCC Form 5641(OMB Control No. 3060-1270). Previously, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) sought and obtained approved from the Office of Management and Budget for multiple information collections needed to implement the Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement Program (Reimbursement Program), OMB Control No. 3060-1270. The various filings are submitted using the FCC Form 5640 and 5641. To further protect the Reimbursement Program from waste, fraud, and abuse and to align the certifications with other recently implemented funding programs by the FCC, the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau revised the certifications associated with the FCC Form 5640. See Wireline Competition Bureau Announces Best Practices for Equipment Disposal and Revises FCC Form 5640 Certifications for the Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement Program, WC Docket No. 18-89, Public Notice, DA 21-1234 (WCB Sept. 30, 2021). The Commission revises this collection to implement the Supply Chain Reimbursement Program, and related requirements, for the reimbursement of expenses by providers of advanced communications services for the removal, replacement, and disposal of covered communications equipment and service that poses a national security risk.

  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 10,250 10,250 0 0 0 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 27,400 27,400 0 0 0 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 1,125,000 1,125,000 0 0 0 0
The Commission is reporting program changes to this information collection as a result of new requirements and the elimination of an existing requirement. The estimated total number of respondents, total annual responses, total annual burden hours and total annual costs have therefore increased under this OMB control number. The total number of respondents increased from 2,257 to 3,500 (+1,243); the total annual responses increased from 2,257 to 10,250 (+7,993); the total annual burden hours increased from 6,771 to 27,400 (+20,629); and the total annual costs increased from $0 to $1,125,000 (+$1,125,000). There are no adjustments.
