Overview of This Information
Collection
1. Type of Information Collection:
Update with changes, of the Department
of Justice Equitable Sharing Agreement
and Certification, a previously approved
collection for which approval will
expire on November 30, 2021.
2. The Title of the Form/Collection:
Department of Justice Equitable Sharing
Agreement and Certification.
3. The agency form number, if any,
and the applicable component of the
Department sponsoring the collection:
There is not an agency form number.
The applicable component within the
Department of Justice is the Money
Laundering and Asset Recovery Section
(‘‘MLARS’’), in the Criminal Division.
4. Affected public who will be asked
or required to respond, as well as a brief
abstract: The Attorney General is
required by statute to ‘‘assure that any
property transferred to a State or local
law enforcement agency . . . will serve
to encourage further cooperation
between the recipient State or local
agency and Federal law enforcement
agencies.’’ 21 U.S.C. 881(e)(3). MLARS
ensures such cooperation by requiring
that all such ‘‘equitably shared’’ funds
be used only for law enforcement
purposes and not be distributed to other
governmental agencies by the recipient
law enforcement agencies. By requiring
that law enforcement agencies that
participate in the Equitable Sharing
Program (Program) file an Equitable
Sharing Agreement and Certification
(ESAC), MLARS can readily ensure
compliance with its statutory
obligations.
The ESAC requires information
regarding the receipt and expenditure of
Program funds from the participating
agency. Accordingly, it seeks
information that is exclusively in the
hands of the participating agency.
5. An estimate of the total number of
respondents and the amount of time
estimated for an average respondent to
respond: An estimated 6,000 state and
local law enforcement agencies
electronically file the ESAC annually
with MLARS. It is estimated that it takes
30 minutes per year to enter the
information. All of the approximately
6,000 agencies must fully complete the
form each year to maintain compliance
and continue participation in the
Department of Justice Equitable Sharing
Program.
6. An estimate of the total public
burden (in hours) associated with the
collection: The estimated public burden
associated with this collection is 3,000
hours. It is estimated that respondents
will take 30 minutes to complete the
form. (6,000 participants × 30 minutes =
3,000 hours).

Primary: Individuals.
Individuals who are contractors for

Justice.
Abstract: Self-reporting requirements
set forth in the Department of Justice
(DOJ) Policy Statement 1700.04,
Department Personnel Security
Reporting Requirements, issued April
18, 2018, apply to non-federal employee
personnel affiliated with the DOJ. The
policy contains reporting requirements
that are applicable to the entire DOJ
workforce as well as reporting
requirements that apply only to
personnel occupying a national security
position or who have access to classified
information. The requirements relating
to national security are mandated by the
Director of National Intelligence as the
Security Executive Agent. The majority
of the reports relate to the submitter’s
personal conduct and activities. There is
one form for personnel to submit
information on other personnel,
consistent with government-wide
reporting requirements. This collection
request seeks approval for contractors
and other non-federal employees who
are processed for access to classified
information to utilize the Department’s
automated reporting system called
iReport, or, for the small population
with no access to the IT system, to
utilize PDF fillable forms to report the
required information. The Security and
Emergency Planning Staff, and other
Department Security Offices, will use
the reported information to determine
the submitter’s continued fitness for
employment at the Department of
Justice or continued eligibility for access
to national security information. The
Department security offices for each
agency component will review,
evaluate, and adjudicate the information
received.
5. An estimate of the total number of
respondents and the amount of time
estimated for an average respondent to
respond:
a. Department-wide population
covered by the requirement to self-
report information in the forms listed in
Sections 2a and 2b is estimated at

percent (1,732) will actually need to
self-report.
b. Department-wide population
covered by the requirement to report
information in the forms listed in
Sections 2c through 2l is estimated to be
604.
c. Amount of time estimated for an

burden (in hours) associated with the
