SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:19 Sep 29, 2011 Jkt 223001 Frm 00056 0.5 DATES: This request is for the clearance of onsite data collection from public housing agencies (PHAs) to test the methodology for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Administrative Fee study. The purpose of the study is to collect accurate information on the costs of administering the HCV program across a representative sample of high performing and efficient PHAs and to use this information to develop a new administrative fee allocation formula for the HCV program. The study is proceeding in multiple phases. This request is for data collection to test the methodology for estimating program costs in the study. We propose to use two main methods for collecting cost data: (1) Measuring the time that front line staff spend working on the program and translating that time into costs using the salaries and benefits of the staff doing the work and adjusting for market factors; and (2) collecting information via interviews and document review on the overhead costs and other costs related to HCV program administration that cannot be captured by measuring staff time spent on the program. We will test these data collection approaches at between 5 and 10 PHAs across the country. The results of the pretest will be used to refine the methodology used for the full study of administrative fees with a larger sample of PHAs.

SUMMARY: The proposed information collection requirement described 
below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department 
is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.

Correction

    This request is for the clearance of on-site data collection from 
public housing agencies (PHAs) to test the methodology for the Housing 
Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Administrative Fee study. The purpose of 
the study is to collect accurate information on the costs of 
administering the HCV program across a representative sample of high 
performing and efficient PHAs and to use this information to develop a 
new administrative fee allocation formula for the HCV program. The 
study is proceeding in multiple phases. This request is for data 
collection to test the methodology for estimating program costs in the 
study. We propose to use two main methods for collecting cost data: (1) 
Measuring the time that front line staff spend working on the program 
and translating that time into costs using the salaries and benefits of 
the staff doing the work and adjusting for market factors; and (2) 
collecting information via interviews and document review on the 
overhead costs and other costs related to HCV program administration 
that cannot be captured by measuring staff time spent on the program. 
We will test these data collection approaches at between 5 and 10 PHAs 
across the country. The results of the pretest will be used to refine 
the methodology used for the full study of administrative fees with a 
larger sample of PHAs.
