Title: General Administrative Requirements for Assistance Programs. ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 0938.16, OMB Control No. 2030–0020. ICR status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on April 30, 2009. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable.

Abstract: The information is collected from applicants/recipients of EPA assistance to monitor adherence to the programmatic and administrative requirements of the Agency’s financial assistance program. It is used to make awards, pay recipients, and collect VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:58 Oct 31, 2008 Jkt 217001 information on how Federal funds are being spent. EPA needs this information to meet its Federal stewardship responsibilities. This ICR renewal requests authorization for the collection of information under EPA’s General Regulation for Assistance Programs, which establishes minimum management requirements for all recipients of EPA grants or cooperative agreements (assistance agreements). Recipients must respond to these information requests to obtain and/or retain a benefit (Federal funds). 40 CFR part 30, ‘‘Grants and Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals and Other Non-profit Organizations,’’ includes the management requirements for potential grantees from non-profit organizations. 40 CFR part 31, ‘‘Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements to State and Local Governments,’’ includes the management responsibilities for potential State and local government grantees. These regulations include only those provisions mandated by statute, required by OMB Circulars, or added by EPA to ensure sound and effective financial assistance management. This ICR combines all of these requirements under OMB Control Number 2030–0020. The information required by these regulations will be used by EPA award officials to make assistance awards and assistance payments and to verify that the recipient is using Federal funds appropriately to comply with OMB Circulars A–21, A–87, A–102, A–110, A–122, A–128, and A–133, which set forth the pre-award, post-award, and after-the-grant requirements. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 18 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated Average Annual Number of Recipients: 6,105.

This includes an estimated labor cost of $5,573,132 and $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR?

At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.
