Paperwork Reduction Act

The PRA concerns information that is created, collected, disclosed, maintained, used, shared, and disseminated by or for the federal government, regardless of whether it is PII.  The primary goal is to calculate and reduce as much as possible the burden of providing information to the government while maintaining the quality of that information. The requirements of the PRA cover collections of information, which may exist in any format, and could include surveys, applications, questionnaires, and reports or any scenario in which 10 or more persons are asked to provide the same information within a 12-month period.
