Applicant Profile Data

WAPA issues a call for applications as part of its project-specific marketing plans. It uses the Applicant Profile Data form to collect information and to determine an entity’s eligibility and ultimately, which entity will receive an allocation of Federal power. The information WAPA proposes to collect is voluntary.

The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. §§ 3501-3521, requires federal agencies to obtain the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) approval before collecting certain information from the public (such as information on forms, general questionnaires, and surveys). Once approved, OMB issues the agency a control number. OMB requires federal agencies to renew their OMB control numbers every three years.

WAPA’s current OMB control number, 1910-5136, for its Applicant Profile Data form (APD) expires on September 30, 2017.

Public comment period
WAPA intends to extend the APD form under the OMB control number to September 30, 2020. The proposed extension includes only minor changes. This would be the third extension of WAPA's current OMB control number for its APD form. This public process only determines the information that WAPA will collect from an entity desiring to apply for a Federal power allocation.

NOTE: This process determines the format of the APD and is NOT a call for applications.

WAPA is seeking comments on this proposed information collection extension related to:

  1. whether the extended collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility
  2. the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used
  3. ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected
  4. ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated electronic, mechanical or other collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

By July 17​, the public should email or mail comments to:

  • Brent Osiek, VP of Power Marketing
    Western Area Power Administration
    150 East Social Hall Avenue, Suite 300
    Salt Lake City, UT  84111
    Please refer to ‘‘Paperwork Reduction Act Information Collection’’ as the subject of your comments.

How to use the applicant data form
