Public Collections and SORNs

When a Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) requirement is identified in a SORN, the collection package must be submitted to OMB before the SORN can publish. The diagram below briefly outlines how these two process can work in tandem.


SORNs with a PRA requirement must also list this information in Section Nine of the Narrative Statement. The required information includes:

  • OMB collection required (Y/N)
  • OMB Control Number (if approved)
  • Title of Collection
  • Date Approved or Submitted
  • Expiration Date (if approved)
