    DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


    Immigration Collection Activities: Comment Request

    ACTION: 60-day notice of information collection under review; INS case
    status service online.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service

    [[Page 52747]]

    has submitted the following information collection request for review
    and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995,
    Pub. L. 104-13 and the Privacy Act of 1974 as amended, and Pub. L. 93-
    589.
    INS now provides case status to individuals and their
    representatives by request through an INS toll phone line or walk-in at
    INS local offices. INS proposes to implement case status online service
    that will provide case status of an immigration or naturalization
    action to customers (and their representatives) via an interactive
    voice response system on a toll free, 1-800 line or a web-based
    application. Individuals or their representatives will look up status
    on the Internet by typing in the receipt number of the submitted form
    or through interaction on a toll-free telephone line. For individuals
    or organizations such as law firms and non-profit organizations that
    represent many individuals and their respective cases, the INS proposes
    to implement a capability for each requestor to develop their own log
    of pending cases on the web. The log will include multiple receipt
    numbers that correspond to individuals' cases. A requestor will have
    access only to a non-attributable case status receipt number.
    INS will provide an option for the requestor to receive email
    notification of status. The requestor would query the system and, if
    desired, request email notification of further status changes. This
    option reduces the number of times that a customer must access the
    system for case status.
    The proposed information collection is published to obtain comments
    from the public and affected agencies. Comments are encouraged and will
    be accepted for sixty days until October 15, 2002.
    Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected
    agencies concerning the proposed collection of information should
    address one or more of the following four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is
    necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency,
    including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of
    the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the
    methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to
    be collected; and
    (4) 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 information collection.
    (2) Title of the Form/Collection: INS Case Status Service Online.
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the
    Department of Justice sponsoring the collection: No Agency Form No.
    (File No. OMB-33). National Customer Service Center, Immigration and
    Naturalization Service.
    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as
    well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individual or households. The INS
    proposes to implement an electronic website as a part of the Customer
    Relationship Interface System (CRIS) initiative. The system will allow
    individuals or their representatives to request case status. The INS
    proposes to permit the requestor to look up status by entering on a
    website the receipt number of the submitted action.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount
    of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 1,000,000
    responses at 4.5 minutes (0.75) per response.
    (6) An estiamte of the total public burden (in hours) associated
    with the collection: 75,000 annual burden hours.
    If you have additional comments, suggestions, or need a copy of the
    proposed information collection instrument with instructions, or
    additional information, please contact Richard A. Sloan 202-514-3291,
    Director, Regulations and Forms Services Division, Immigration and
    Naturalization Service, U.S. Department of Justice, Room 4034, 425 I
    Street, NW., Washington, DC 20536. Additionally, comments and/or
    suggestions regarding the item(s) contained in this notice, especially
    regarding the estimated public burden and associated response time may
    also be directed to Mr. Richard A. Sloan.
    If additional information is required contact: Mr. Robert B.
    Briggs, Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice,
    Information Management and Security Staff, Justice Management Division,
    Patrick Henry Building, 601 D Street, NW., Suite 1600, Washington, DC
    20530.
