VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:27 Apr 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 OMB Control Number: 2535–0106. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD assesses all of the management operations data required under section 6(j) of the Act in a format comprising six sections or sub-indicators. The PHAS regulation requires that all management operations data be submitted electronically to HUD, in a HUD prescribed format. HUD uses the management data it collects from program participants to evaluate all major areas of a participant’s management operations. The management data are evaluated using predetermined weights and factors to compute an indicator score for the management operations of each reporting entity. HUD uses this score with three other PHAS indicator scores (i.e., physical condition, financial condition and resident services) to produce an overall PHAS score for each PHA. The overall PHAS score determines if a PHA’s performance is high, standard, or troubled. Agency form number, if applicable: Form HUD–50072. Members of affected public: PHAs, State or local government. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents: The estimated number of respondents is an annual average of 3,174 PHAs that submit management operations certification. The average number for each PHA response varies by size of the PHA, with a total reporting burden of 3,644 hours, or an average of 1.15 hours per respondent. Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a currently approved collection. Authority: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended.
