Chapter 2
Information Collections
2 –1. General
Information is any communication or representation of knowledge such as, facts, data, or opinions in any medium or
form. Information collections are written verbal reports, applications (forms), schedules, surveys (including focus
groups), questionnaires, reporting or recordkeeping requirements in any format and collected through any media. In-
formation collections must be essential to the mission of the requesting organization and the burden must be worth
the benefit of the results of the collection. The burden is the total time, effort, and financial resources used to generate,
maintain, retain, or provide information

2 –2. Types of information collections
Information collections may be Army internal (also known as component internal or internal), multi-Service (also
known as DOD internal or cross-services), or public. In some instances, an information collection may be a combina-
tion of public and Army internal or multi-Service

2 –3. Information collection requirements
Information collection items must be constructed to obtain all information needed concisely, economically, and effec-
tively. Prescribing directives containing information requirements should be sufficiently clear to avoid misinterpreta-
tion. Before collecting information, AOs must ensure that the information is not duplicative of information already
available. Army and DOD policies require that information collections comply with the following:
a. Non duplication. Individuals requesting an information collection must ensure that the information collected
does not duplicate information already available. When the information is not already available, requesters must
demonstrate that they are using methods (for example, a scientific sample and a short questionnaire) to minimize the
information col- lection burden on respondents

b. Licensure. All information collections must be approved and assigned a SCN, RCS, OMB control number or a
combination of two. All surveys administered by an Army organization will be submitted for a formal review and
deter- mination. Soldiers and DA Civilians will not respond to any type of information collection that has not been
properly approved and licensed with an information collection control symbol

c. Privacy impact assessment. When personal information about individuals is collected in an electronic form, a
DD Form 2930 (Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)) must be completed in accordance with AR 25–1 to ensure the data
remains protected and private

2 –4. Information collection budget
a. In accordance with DODI 8910.01, HQDA will submit annual information collection budgets, which will project
DA’s information management needs from the public for the next fiscal year. The number of hours public respondents
require to prepare Army data collection requests will be limited by a ceiling OMB assigns

b. HQDA will inform AOs proposing a new or revised data collection from the public if their proposal is within
the current assigned ceiling

c. Data collection requests proposed after submission of the information collection budget that exceed the ceiling
will be disapproved unless the Secretary of Defense certifies an emergency need for the data

AR 25–98 • 8 February 2019 4
Chapter 3
Army Internal Information Collections
3 –1. Purpose
This chapter outlines the requirements and process for Army internal collections. If the Army internal information
collec- tion is a survey, see chapter 6 for the elements required for review and approval

3 –2. General
An Army internal information collection is when the Army needs to collect information from Army personnel only

Army internal information collections are approved by HQDA. If approved, the collection will be assigned a RCS and
expiration date

3 –3. Army internal exemptions
a. Nonsurvey Army internal collections may be exempt from a formal review. The exemptions align with the multi-
Service collections exemptions outlined in DODM 8910.01, Volume 1, Enclosure 3

b. In accordance with paragraph 2–3, all surveys administered by an Army organization will be submitted for a
formal review and determination

3 –4. Unauthorized requests
Requests for information will not be approved when—
a. The request is considered controllable and the directive does not cite a RCS

b. The request cites an exemption that does not apply

c. The request cites a RCS that has been rescinded

d. The request cites a questionable exemption or symbol

e. A request for an exempt or controlled information collection appears to duplicate or overlap another collection
re- quest, or to conflict with the objectives of the management information control system

f. Repeated requests are received for one-time data collections that appear to overlap each other or indicate a need
for a recurring data request

g. The request does not appear to comply with this regulation

3–5. Required documents and approval process
a. The action officer (AO) will discuss new or revised data requests with the IMCO within jurisdiction for coordi-
nation. The discussion will include possible duplication of data, potential availability of data, cost estimating tech-
niques to be used, effect on preparers, and management’s need for the information

b. If a need to request data is determined, the AO will complete the DA Form 7799. The DA Form 7799 and
instrument will be sent to the IMCO with jurisdiction for review and approval

c. The IMCO with jurisdiction will coordinate with the records administrator and privacy officer ensuring compli-
ance with records management and privacy policies. The appointed IMCO may also serve as the records administrator
and privacy officer. If that is the case, the IMCO with jurisdiction will complete and sign complete DA Form 7799,
block 11

d. The request for a RCS will be approved by a colonel and/or O–6 or DA Civilian equivalent within the office of
the IMCO with jurisdiction before submission to HQDA

e. Upon approval of the request, the IMCO with jurisdiction will submit the DA Form 7799 with all applicable
signatures and the instrument to HQDA for approval of the RCS

f. The assigned DA IMCO will review the information requirement and if approved assign a RCS number to all
DA Form 7799s for Armywide use

g. The RCS will be added on all DA Forms annotated on the approved DA Form 7799

h. RCSs will expire when the prescribing directive requiring the collection of information is no longer applicable

Pre- scribing directives with a requirement to collect information that are rescinded will also rescind the approved
RCS. If there is still a need to collect data Armywide then it must be outlined in a new prescribing directive and
resubmitted for approval of a RCS. If there is no prescribing directive that includes the need to collect data Armywide,
the AO may submit a request for an extension of the RCS

AR 25–98 • 8 February 2019 5
3 –6. Canceling a report control symbol reporting requirement
RCS reporting requirements that are no longer needed may be canceled before the expiration date. To cancel a RCS
reporting requirement, AOs must—
a. Send written notification to the reporting activities if they have superseded or discontinued a RCS report

b. Update the publication that prescribes the RCS report by issuing a revision or an interim change to reflect the
current status of the reporting requirement. Include this information in the “Summary of Change” once the publication
is rewritten

c. Submit a copy of the written notification, a draft of the revised publication or interim change, and the DA Form
7799 requesting to cancel the RCS requirement to the DA IMCO

d. Coordinate with servicing records administrator to effect disposition of any accumulated records and coordinate
on requirement to change any report specific records disposition

Chapter 4
Multi-Service Information Collection Requirements
4 –1. Purpose
This chapter provides the necessary information for the Army to develop, review, revise, and obtain approval for
multi- Service information collections. It specifies the responsibilities of the Army for responding to collections im-
posed on DOD

4 –2. General information
a. A multi-Service information collection is when information is collected from one or more DOD or Office of the
Secretary of Defense (OSD) components

b. Multi-Service information collections will be approved by the DOD Army internal Information Collections Of-
ficer in the Washington Headquarters Services/Executive Services Directorate Office of Information Management. If
approved, the collection will be assigned a RCS and expiration date

c. There are two groups that make up a multi-Service population, they are as follows:
(1) Active Duty Service and/or military members from two or more DOD components

(2) Federal employees from two or more DOD or OSD components

4 –3. Multi-Service exemptions
a. See DODM 8910.01, Volume 1 for categories of multi-Service collections that are exempt from formal review
and approval procedures

b. Army organizations will notify DA of nonsurvey collections exempt from formal review. If action is needed,
the implementing organization will request a RCS in accordance with this regulation

c. Surveys are not exempt from formal review. All surveys will be submitted to for determination and licensure

4 –4. Approval periods and types of requests
There are several types of multi-service information collection requests. Request types may be combined; however,
there will only be one expiration type and date assigned to the collection. Approval periods vary depending on the
type of collection

a. New and/or reinstatements

(1) Approval period: 5 years

(2) Reinstatements are completed when a RCS is close to expiring and there remains a need to collect the infor-
mation and when the RCS has expired and the component needs to resume the collection

(3) For reinstatements, copies of past results of the approved collection must be submitted to OIM

b. Revisions

(1) Revisions do not alter the expiration date

(2) A revision is a change to an active RCS

(a) Minor revisions require approval forms, cost summaries, or coordination

(b) Major revisions may require coordination of the DD Form 2936 (Request for Approval of DOD Army internal
Information Collections), an updated cost summary, and updated mandatory coordination of the collection instrument

(3) Revisions which increase the cost of the collection by more than $10,000 must go through the full approval

c. Extensions
