                information are encouraged. Your comments should address one or more of
                the following four points:
                 Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is
                necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the FBI,
                including whether the information will have practical utility;
                 Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the
                burden of the proposed collection of information, including the
                validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
                 Evaluate whether and if so how the quality, utility, and
                clarity of the information to be collected can be enhanced; and
                 Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
                those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate
                automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection
                techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting
                electronic submission of responses.
                Overview of This Information Collection
                 1. Type of Information Collection: New Collection.
                 2. The Title of the Form/Collection: FBI Special Agent Application
                Process Review Form.
                 3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of
                the Department sponsoring the collection: ``There is no agency form
                number for this collection''. The applicable component within the
                Department of Justice is the FBI.
                 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as
                well as a brief abstract: Individuals; Anyone who has filled out any
                part of the FBI Special Agent Application in the previous three years
                will be asked to complete a brief voluntary survey recalling their
                experience and preparation tactics for the application process. This
                information is being collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
                for the purpose of improving the ease of the application process,
                eliminating any systematic barriers to success for applicants, and
                better understanding how to recruit and retain qualified applicants.
                 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of
                time estimated for an average respondent to respond: We estimate
                roughly 40,000 individuals have applied to the Special Agent position
                at the FBI in the previous 3 years, we will solicit this entire
                population to participate in the voluntary survey though it is unlikely
                all 40,000 WILL respond. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes
                to complete.
                 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated
                with the collection: 6,667 total hours of public burden, 10 minutes per
                survey for 40,000 respondents.
