Proposed Collection; Comment Request
Document Number: 2017-08477
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-04-27
Agency: Railroad Retirement Board, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 which provides opportunity for public comment on new or revised data collections, the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) will publish periodic summaries of proposed data collections. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the RRB's estimate of the burden of the collection of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Title and purpose of information collection: Representative Payee Monitoring; OMB 3220-0151. Under Section 12 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the RRB may pay annuity benefits to a representative payee when an employee, spouse, or survivor annuitant is incompetent or a minor. The RRB is responsible for determining if direct payment to an annuitant or a representative payee would best serve the annuitant's best interest. The accountability requirements authorizing the RRB to conduct periodic monitoring of representative payees, including a written accounting of benefit payments received, are prescribed in 20 CFR 266.7. The RRB utilizes the following forms to conduct its representative payee monitoring program. Form G-99a, Representative Payee Report, is used to obtain information needed to determine whether the benefit payments certified to the representative payee have been used for the annuitant's current maintenance and personal needs and whether the representative payee continues to be concerned with the annuitant's welfare. RRB Form G-99c, Representative Payee Evaluation Report, is used to obtain more detailed information from a representative payee who fails to complete and return Form G-99a or in situations when the returned Form G-99a indicates the possible misuse of funds by the representative payee. Form G-99c contains specific questions concerning the representative payee's performance and is used by the RRB to determine whether or not the representative payee should continue in that capacity. The RRB proposes no changes to Forms G-99a and G-99c. In response to the RRB's Office of Inspector General's recommendation to strengthen the controls of the agency's representative payee monitoring program, the RRB proposes new Form G- 106, Statement of Care and Responsibility to Annuitant. In cases where the representative payee does not have custody of the annuitant, Form G-106 will be used to solicit information about the representative payee's performance and the annuitant's well-being from the custodian of the annuitant. The proposed form contains specific questions concerning the representative payee's performance, and will be used by the RRB to determine whether or not the representative payee should continue in that capacity. Completion of the forms in this collection is required to retain benefits.

Type: Notice
Date: 2017-04-26
Agency: National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities, Agencies and Commissions, National Endowment for the Humanities
The National Endowment for the Humanities (``NEH'') is publishing a notice of its systems of records with descriptions of the systems and the ways in which they are maintained, as required by the Privacy Act of 1974. NEH's mission has not changed since its inception in 1965: It extends federal financial assistance to support humanities-related projects, conducted by both individuals and organizations. In that endeavor, it employs staff and special government employees, and engages academic peer reviewers, to evaluate grant applications. NEH created several systems of records to maintain records concerning the individuals with whom it regularly interacts: e.g., grant applicants, employees, peer reviewers, contractors and vendors. As with its mission, the categories of individuals with whom NEH interacts and the systems it created to host records regarding such individuals have not changed significantly since NEH's inception. This notice reflects administrative and operational changes that have been made at NEH since it last published notice of its systems of records, such as agency restructuring and the increased use of electronic technology. This notice will enable individuals who wish to access information maintained in NEH systems of records to make accurate and specific requests for such information. This notice does not reflect, nor has NEH undertaken, significant changes to the numbers or categories of individuals about whom it maintains records in its systems of records, the categories of records maintained in these systems, the purpose for which it maintains these systems, or the availability of information contained in these systems. This notice also reflects certain new routine uses requested by the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Government Information Services of the National Archives and Records Administration, as well as routine uses that are standard within other federal agencies.
