Notice of Extension of the Public Comment Period for the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Report for Vegetation Treatments on Public Lands Administered by the Bureau of Land Management in the Western United States, Including Alaska, 2955 [06-441]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 11 / Wednesday, January 18, 2006 / Notices collection instrument has been revised. This revised information collection automates responses through a drop down table listing. This was done in response to customer concerns about the difficulty in putting information in the previously approved form. The revised collection adds an additional requirement for addressing a series of tailored management questions and a return on investment statement when reporting back to HUD. This process will replace various, current progress reporting requirements and reduce reporting burdens. It will also promote greater emphasis on performance and results in grant programs. The management questions are based on the 2955  Carter-Richmond methodology that identifies key management and evaluation questions for HUD’s programs. The following table identifies the Carter-Richmond generic questions and where the source data is found in the Logic Model.  CARTER-RICHMOND METHODOLOGY: 1 BUILDING BLOCKS FOR EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT Management questions Logic model columns for source data 1.
