Comments requested on proposed extension of BJS's National Corrections Reporting Program
BJS encourages comments for 60 days until September 7, 2018, on the extension of a currently approved collection: the National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP). Your comments to BJS's request to the Office of Management and Budget, published in the Federal Register, should address points such as—
• whether the proposed data collection is necessary, including whether the information will have practical utility.
• the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of data, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions.
• whether and how the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected can be enhanced.
• the burden of the information collection on respondents, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques.
