The National Directory of New Hires (NDNH) is a federally mandated national repository of employment, unemployment insurance, and quarterly wage information submitted by state directories of new hires (SDNH), state workforce agencies (SWA), and federal employers. Collecting NDNH information is necessary to fulfill the federal child support enforcement requirements and to assist congressionally authorized state and federal agencies administer certain benefit programs.

Miscellaneous Actions
The estimated new hires reported by employers increased since the previous approval, resulting in adjustments to the burden. There are 145,498 more employers reporting manually and 29,708 more employers reporting electronically since the previous approval; however, there are fewer responses per respondent, thereby decreasing the respective burden hours by 8,472 and 757 respectively. States reported 5,556 fewer new hires than the previous approval, which decreased the burden hour by 5,100 hours annually. The number of quarterly wage and unemployment insurance responses per respondent increased by two, which resulted in a burden increase of 0.03, and the average annual number of new MSER forms decreased from 4,075 to 1,118, which resulted in a decrease of 148 to the annual hourly burden. These adjustments constitute program changes. The overall respondent burden changes led to a decrease in the estimated annual burden hours; however, labor changes and compliance with the OMB requirement to double the average wage rate to account for benefits and overhead resulted in the total estimated annual burden costs to increase to $13,378,827.99. OCSE revised the Multistate Employer Registration form to clarify who may use the form, to change the option for sending the form via fax to email or postal service, to allow employers to confirm if the address provided is where Income Withholding Orders should be sent, and to remove the subsidiary information table and replace it with a link to the form on OCSE’s website. These program changes do not impact the burden. The increase in cost to the federal government from the previous OMB approval is due to an expanded outreach to employers and states, more respondents submitting information, and the general operational and maintenance costs of the NDNH.
