OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The PPR is a set of uniform reporting formats that will be used for standard reporting on performance under grants and cooperative agreements issued by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the Grants Center of Excellence (CoE) partners. Performance reporting is an integral part of the President’s Management Agenda (PMA). In addition to allowing for uniformity of information collection, these formats will support systematic electronic collection and submission of information. These formats will provide interim and final performance progress information as required by OMB Circulars A–102 and A–110. The PPR consists of a cover page and six optional forms or formats. The cover page contains identifying data elements and a section for a performance narrative. Use of the cover page is required, and programs may only require their respondents to submit this page and/or attach a performance narrative. Alternatively, programs may opt to require the cover page and one or more of the six optional formats. Respondents: ACF, the Grants Center of Excellence partners and their grantees.

OMB No.: 0980–0271. Description: The information being collected is mandated by section 454(16) of the Social Security Act (the Act), which provides for the establishment and operation by State agencies, in accordance with an initial and annually updated Advance Planning Document (APD) approved under section 452(d) of the Act, of a statewide system meeting the requirements of section 454A of the Act. In addition, section 454A(e)(1) of the Act requires that States create a State Case Registry (SCR) within their statewide automated child support systems to include information on IV– D cases and non-IV–D orders established or modified in the State on or after October 1, 1998. Section 454A(e)(5) of the Act requires States to regularly update their cases in the SCR. This notice reflects the new transactions set for SCR to Federal Case 1.84 1.54 1 1 1 Average burden hours per response 60 1.5 1 1 1.5 Total burden hours 5,520 116 27 14 75 Registry (FCR) transactions where States are encouraged, but not required, to submit data from their SCR to the FCR. The data being collected for the APD are a combination of narratives, budgets and schedules, which are used to provide funding approvals on an annual basis and to monitor and oversee systems development. Child support has separate regulations under 45 CFR 307.15 related to submitted of APDs because the program had supplemental authority for enhanced funding for systems development, and has substantial penalties for noncompliance with the statutory deadline of October 1, 2000. This information collection reflects the fact that 52 states and Territories are now certified as meeting the automation requirements of the Family Support Act of 1988 (FSA) and the Personal Responsibilities and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 (PRWORA), leaving only two States that are not yet PRWORA systems certified and only one state that has not submitted an Implementation APD for compliance with PRWORA automation. States and Territories that opted to keep their APD for child support systems are covered under separate Information Collection, OMB No. 0992–0005, for 45 CFR part 95 subpart F. The data being collected for the SCR is used to transmit mandatory data elements to the FCR where it is used for matching against other databases for the purposes of location of individuals, assets, employment and other child support related activities. Respondents: State and Territorial Child Support Agencies.
