Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 46772-46773 [E9-21890]

Download as PDF cprice-sewell on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES 46772 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 175 / Friday, September 11, 2009 / Notices delay construction is in direct conflict with a fundamental economic purpose of the ARRA, which is to create or retain jobs. EPA’s national contractor prepared a technical assessment report for the Kennebec Water District dated June 25, 2009 on the waiver request submitted. The report for the KWD determined that the waiver request submittal was complete and that adequate technical information was provided. The report also confirmed the waiver applicant’s claims that there were presently no comparable cast iron valve boxes manufactured domestically. The technical review team found that domestic manufacturers do produce cast iron valve boxes, but could not identify any that offered the top flange product with the necessary top section length of 36 inches. The Municipal Assistance Unit (CMU) has reviewed this waiver request and has determined that the supporting documentation provided by the KWD is sufficient to meet the criteria listed under Section 1605(b), OMB’s regulations at 2 CFR 176.60–176.170, and in the April 28, 2009, ‘‘Implementation of Buy American provisions of P.L. 111–5, the ‘‘American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009’’ Memorandum’’: Iron, steel, and the manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality. The basis for this individual project waiver is the authorization provided in Section 1605(b)(2). Due to the lack of production of this product in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality in order to meet the Water District’s technical specifications and requirements, a waiver from the Buy American requirement is justified. The March 31, 2009 Delegation of Authority Memorandum provided Regional Administrators with the authority to issue exceptions to Section 1605 of ARRA within the geographic boundaries of their respective regions and with respect to requests by individual grant recipients. Having established both a proper basis to specify the particular good required for this project, and that this manufactured good was not available from a producer in the United States, the Kennebec Water District is hereby granted a waiver from the Buy American requirements of Section 1605(a) of Public Law 111–5 for the purchase of specified cast iron valve boxes using ARRA funds as specified in the Water District’s requests of June 23, 2009. This supplementary information constitutes VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:59 Sep 10, 2009 Jkt 217001 the detailed written justification required by Section 1605(c) for waivers ‘‘based on a finding under subsection (b).’’ Authority: Public Law 111–5, section 1605 Dated: September 2, 2009.

OMB No.: 0970–0214. Description: The following five separate activities are associated with this information collection: Foster Care Eligibility Review (FCER) Program Improvement Plan; Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSR) State agency Statewide Assessment; CFSR On-site Review; CFSR Program Improvement Plan; and Anti-Discrimination Enforcement Corrective Action Plan. The collection of information for review of Federal payments to States for foster care maintenance payments (45 CFR 1356.71(i)) is authorized by title IV–E of the Social Security Act (the Act), section 474 [42 U.S.C. 674]. The Foster Care Eligibility Reviews (FCER) ensure that States claim title IV–E funds only on behalf of title IV–E eligible children. The collection of information for review of State child and family services programs (45 CFR 1355.33(b), 1355.33(c) and 1355.35(a)) is to determine whether such programs are in substantial conformity with State plan requirements under parts B and E of the Act and is authorized by section 1123(a) [42 U.S.C. 1320a–1a] of the Act. The CFSR looks at the outcomes related to safety, permanency and well-being of children served by the child welfare system and at seven systemic factors that support the outcomes. Section 474(d) of the Act [42 U.S.C. 674] deploys enforcement provisions (45 CFR 1355.38(b) and (c)) for the requirements at section 4371(a)(18) [42 U.S.C. 671], which prohibit the delay or denial of foster and adoptive placements based on the race, color, or national origin of any of the individuals involved. The enforcement provisions include the execution and completion of corrective action plans when a State is in violation of section 471(a)(18) of the Act. The information collection is needed: (1) To ensure compliance with title IV–E foster care eligibility requirements; (2) to monitor State plan requirements under titles IV– B and IV–E of the Act, as required by Federal statute; and (3) to enforce the title IV–E anti-discrimination requirements through State corrective action plans. The resultant information will allow ACF to determine if States are in compliance with State plan E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1 46773 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 175 / Friday, September 11, 2009 / Notices requirements and are achieving desired outcomes for children and families, help ensure that claims by States for title IV– E funds are made only on behalf of title IV–E eligible children, and require States to revise applicable statutes, rules, policies and procedures, and provide proper training to staff, through the development and implementation of corrective action plans. These reviews not only address compliance with eligibility requirements but also assist States in enhancing the capacities to serve children and families.

    Title: Title IV-E Foster Care Eligibility Review and Child and 
Family Service Reviews; Final Rule.
    OMB No.: 0970-0214.
    Description: The following five separate activities are associated 
with this information collection: Foster Care Eligibility Review (FCER) 
Program Improvement Plan; Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSR) 
State agency Statewide Assessment; CFSR On-site Review; CFSR Program 
Improvement Plan; and Anti-Discrimination Enforcement Corrective Action 
Plan. The collection of information for review of Federal payments to 
States for foster care maintenance payments (45 CFR 1356.71(i)) is 
authorized by title IV-E of the Social Security Act (the Act), section 
474 [42 U.S.C. 674]. The Foster Care Eligibility Reviews (FCER) ensure 
that States claim title IV-E funds only on behalf of title IV-E 
eligible children. The collection of information for review of State 
child and family services programs (45 CFR 1355.33(b), 1355.33(c) and 
1355.35(a)) is to determine whether such programs are in substantial 
conformity with State plan requirements under parts B and E of the Act 
and is authorized by section 1123(a) [42 U.S.C. 1320a-1a] of the Act. 
The CFSR looks at the outcomes related to safety, permanency and well-
being of children served by the child welfare system and at seven 
systemic factors that support the outcomes. Section 474(d) of the Act 
[42 U.S.C. 674] deploys enforcement provisions (45 CFR 1355.38(b) and 
(c)) for the requirements at section 4371(a)(18) [42 U.S.C. 671], which 
prohibit the delay or denial of foster and adoptive placements based on 
the race, color, or national origin of any of the individuals involved. 
The enforcement provisions include the execution and completion of 
corrective action plans when a State is in violation of section

ensure compliance with title IV-E foster care eligibility requirements; 
(2) to monitor State plan requirements under titles IV-B and IV-E of 
the Act, as required by Federal statute; and (3) to enforce the title
