ICRAS Electronic OMB Streamlining or elimination

DHHS uses ICRAS to electronically submit OMB-related regulatory and Paperwork Reduction Act documents to OMB. The majority of the the rest of the government uses ROCIS to do the same. While ICRAS was at the forefront of electronic technology in the past, it is almost identical to ROCIS now, and should either be joined with ROCIS or elimiinated to avoid duplicating redundant IT systems. While it appears that cost savings will be minimal, the cost of training DHHS staff on both systems is large and will be avoided.
