the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the
collection of information including the validity of the methodology
and assumptions used; (3) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity
of the information to be collected; and (4) minimize the burden of
the collection of the information on those who are to respond,
including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic,
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other
forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic
submission of responses.
