candidates for national security clearance must submit as a condition 
of access to specifically designated classified information along with 
a favorably adjudicated personnel security background investigation or

its instructions at this time. The public is invited to comment on the 
information collection pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), ODNI invites the general public and other 
Federal agencies to comment on Standard Form 714. The comments and 
suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (a)

Executive Order 12968 (``Access to Classified Information''); (b) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the proposed information collection 
for Standard Form 714; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected in the Standard Form 714;

burden of the collection of information on all respondents to the 
Standard Form 714; and (e) whether small businesses are affected by 
this collection. The comments that are submitted will be summarized and 
included in the ODNI request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
approval. All comments will become a matter of public record.
