ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the ‘‘Corporation’’), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Corporation is soliciting comments concerning its proposed renewal of its Financial Management Survey. The Financial Management Survey collects information from new grantees about their financial management systems so the Corporation can determine if appropriate systems are in place to manage federal grant funds or, if not, to identify training and technical assistance a new grantee may need to implement appropriate financial systems. The Corporation requires new grantees who have not received Corporation funds before to complete the form. Copies of the information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the addresses section of this Notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the individual and office listed in the ADDRESSES section by March 14, 2011.

Background: Organizations that are receiving Corporation funds for the first time complete the form. It can be completed and submitted via e-mail. The survey requests some existing organizational documents, such as an IRS Form 990 and audited financial statements. Organizations can provide those documents electronically or submit them on paper. Current Action: The Corporation seeks to renew its current Financial Management Survey with slight revisions. The renewal form requests additional information from the grantee about organizational size and Board of Directors structure and operations. It also requires submission of an organizational chart and Articles of Incorporation. The information collection will otherwise be used in the same manner as the existing survey form. The Corporation also seeks to continue using the current application until the revised application is approved by OMB. The current application is due to expire on March 31, 2011.
