IEc has assisted a variety of agencies develop Information Collection Requests (ICRs) in accordance
with Paperwork Reduction Act requirements and successfully negotiate the review process with the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB). We work closely with clients to develop a thoughtful and robust data collection
approach, and then carefully document the need for and use of the information and estimated burden and
cost associated with the data collection. We have particular experience assisting agencies develop
Part B of the ICR Supporting Statement, which covers the survey objectives, survey design and testing,
data collection methods, and proposed analytical approach.
