Job Description

  • Provide training as appropriate
  • Remind sponsors about renewals and upcoming deadlines
  • Determine a new sponsor if the previous sponsor is no longer the correct POC
  • Attend any meetings between the NOAA PRA Officer and the NOS sponsors to ensure there is a complete understanding of collection activities
  • Review all PRA documents for NOS collections to ensure completeness, compliance with grammar, punctuation, etc
  • Ensure forms have an OMB Control Number, expiration date, PRA Burden statement, and Privacy Act Statement if applicable
  • Enter ICR information and documentation into the system for all NOS collections (extensions, revisions, change requests, reinstatements)
  • In the absence of NOAA PRA Officer, submit documents directly to DOC for processing
  • Review the Federal Register for the posting of any notices associated with collections.
  • Liaise with the NOAA PRA Officer on PRA matters
