I. Abstract

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is
requesting Office of Management and Budget approval for a new
information collection which will be used to evaluate the need for NASA
to establish a central repository of reusable components for earth
science data systems. The NASA Earth Science Data Systems Working
Group, who will be collecting the information, needs to better
understand the community’s needs with respect to such a repository
before it can be built.

II. Method of Collection

Collection of information will be entirely through an online Web-
based questionnaire in order to minimize respondent burden.

III. Data

  • Title: Earth Science Software Reuse.
  • OMB Number: 2700-XXXX.
  • Type of review: New collection.
  • Affected Public: Federal Government; Business or other for-profit; Not-for-profit institutions.
  • Estimated Number of Respondents: 60.
  • Estimated Time Per Response: 20 minutes.
  • Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 20.
  • Estimated Total Annual Cost: $0.

IV. Request for Comments

Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of
NASA, including whether the information collected has practical
utility; (2) the accuracy of NASA’s estimate of the burden (including
hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (3) ways to
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be
collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of
information on respondents, including automated collection techniques
or the use of other forms of information technology.
Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized
and included in the request for OMB approval of this information
collection. They will also become a matter of public record.

Patricia L. Dunnington,
Chief Information Officer.
