Chapter 35), the GSA Office of Governmentwide Policy will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve a new information collection requirement concerning reporting real property status. VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:48 Nov 15, 2007 Jkt 214001 In support of OMB’s continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, GSA invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a proposed new information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning forms that will be used to collect information related to real property when required by a Federal financial assistance award. To view the form, go to OMB’s main Web page at https://www.OMB.gov and click on the ‘‘Grants Management’’ and ‘‘Forms’’ links. OMB specifically requests comments on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. DATES: Comment Due Date: January 15, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Nelson, Chair, Post-Award Workgroup; telephone 301–713–0833 ext. 199; fax 301–713–0806; e-mail Michael.Nelson@noaa.gov; mailing address 1305 East-West Highway, Room 7142, Silver Spring, MD 20910. ADDRESSES: Submit comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including suggestions for reducing this burden, to the Regulatory Secretariat (VIR), General Services Administration, Room 4035, 1800 F Street, NW., Washington, DC 20405. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose GSA, on behalf of the Federal Grants Streamlining Initiative, proposes to issue a new standard form, the Real Property Status Report (SF–XXXX). The SF–XXXX will be used to collect information related to real property when required by a Federal financial assistance award. The SF–XXXX includes a cover page, an Attachment A and Attachment B. The purpose of this new form is to report real property status or to request agency instructions on real property that was or will be provided or acquired, in whole or in part, under a Federal financial assistance award (e.g., grant, cooperative agreement, etc.), including real property PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that was improved (special circumstances apply to improvements) using Federal funds and real property that was donated to a Federal project in the form of a match or cost sharing donation. The form does not create any new reporting requirements. It does establish a standard format for reporting real property status under financial assistance awards. It does establish a standard annual reporting date of September 30 to be used, if an award does not specify an annual reporting date. The standard form will replace any agency unique forms currently in use to allow uniformity of collection and to support future electronic submission of information. Background Public Law 106–107 requires the OMB to direct, coordinate, and assist Executive Branch departments and agencies in establishing an interagency process to streamline and simplify Federal financial assistance procedures for non-Federal entities. The law also requires executive agencies to develop, submit to Congress, and implement a plan for that streamlining and simplification. Twenty-six Executive Branch agencies jointly submitted a plan to the Congress in May 2001. The plan described the interagency process through which the agencies would review current policies and practices and seek to streamline and simplify them. The process involved interagency work groups under the auspices of the U.S. Chief Financial Officers Council, Grants Policy Committee. The plan also identified substantive areas in which the interagency work groups had begun their review. Those areas are part of the Federal Grants Streamlining Initiative. This proposed form is an undertaking of the interagency Post-Award Workgroup that supports the Federal Grants Streamlining Initiative. Additional information on the Federal Grants Streamlining Initiative, which focuses on implementing the Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act of 1999 (Public Law 106–107), is set forth in the Federal Register published on September 13, 2006 (71 FR 54098). An overview of the SF–XXXX and five other report forms being developed under the Initiative was provided during a webcast of the Grants Policy Committee of the U.S. Chief Financial Officer Council held on March 8, 2007 (72 FR 7090, February 14, 2007). Under the standards for management and disposition of federally-owned property and real property acquired under assistance awards (real property status) in 2 CFR Part 215, the ‘‘Uniform E:\FR\FM\16NON1.SGM 16NON1
