DATES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Performance Reporting System, Management Evaluation. OMB Number: 0584–0010. Expiration Date: 4/30/2013. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The purpose of the Performance Reporting System (PRS) is to ensure that each State agency and project area is operating the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in accordance with the requirements of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) (7 U.S.C. 2011, et seq.), as amended and corresponding program regulations. Under Section 11 of the Act (7 U.S.C. 2020), State agencies must maintain necessary records to ascertain that SNAP is operating in compliance with the Act and regulations and must make these records available to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) for inspection and audit. Management Evaluation (ME) Review Schedules—Unless the State receives approval for an alternative Management Evaluation review schedule, each State agency is required, under 7 CFR part 275, to submit one review schedule every one, two or three years, depending on the project area make-up of the State. Data Analysis—Under 7 CFR part 275, each State must establish a system for analysis and evaluation of all data available to the State. Data analysis and evaluation is an ongoing process that facilitates the development of effective and prompt corrective action. Corrective Action Plans—Under 7 CFR part 275, State agencies must prepare a corrective action plan (CAP) addressing identified deficiencies. The State agencies must develop a system for monitoring and evaluating corrective Estimated number of respondents Respondent Responses annually per respondent/ reviews action and submit CAP updates, as necessary. Affected Public: SNAP State and local agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 53 State agencies. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: (1) State agencies will submit one review schedule and one ME review plan per year, and will conduct and document ME reviews for an average total of 28.98 responses each. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 1,536 (53 review schedules + 53 review plan development + 1,430 project areas) Estimated Time per Response: FNS estimates that it takes 4 hours to prepare a review schedule, and that each of the 53 State agencies will submit one review schedule per year resulting in a total burden of 212 hours. FNS estimates that it takes on average approximately 80 hours to develop a comprehensive State review plan, resulting in a total of 4,240 hours. FNS estimates that it takes an average of 340 hours to conduct a review. It is estimated that ME reviews are conducted for one-half of the total number of project areas (1,430). Therefore, FNS estimates that it takes approximately 486,200 hours annually for State agencies to conduct their reviews. FNS also estimates that the time necessary for record keeping, that is, the time necessary to find and file a record in the conduct of an ME review is .1169 hours per State agency. Therefore, the total amount of time for recordkeeping is 180 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Performance Reporting System, Management Evaluation.
    OMB Number: 0584-0010.
    Expiration Date: 4/30/2013.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Abstract: The purpose of the Performance Reporting System (PRS) is 
to ensure that each State agency and project area is operating the 
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in accordance with the 
requirements of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) (7 U.S.C. 
2011, et seq.), as amended and corresponding program regulations. Under 
Section 11 of the Act (7 U.S.C. 2020), State agencies must maintain 
necessary records to ascertain that SNAP is operating in compliance 
with the Act and regulations and must make these records available to 
the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) for inspection and audit.
    Management Evaluation (ME) Review Schedules--Unless the State 
receives approval for an alternative Management Evaluation review 
schedule, each State agency is required, under 7 CFR part 275, to 
submit one review schedule every one, two or three years, depending on 
the project area make-up of the State.
    Data Analysis--Under 7 CFR part 275, each State must establish a 
system for analysis and evaluation of all data available to the State. 
Data analysis and evaluation is an ongoing process that facilitates the 
development of effective and prompt corrective action.
    Corrective Action Plans--Under 7 CFR part 275, State agencies must 
prepare a corrective action plan (CAP) addressing identified 
deficiencies. The State agencies must develop a system for monitoring 
and evaluating corrective action and submit CAP updates, as necessary.
    Affected Public: SNAP State and local agencies.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 53 State agencies.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: (1) State agencies 
will submit one review schedule and one ME review plan per year, and 
will conduct and document ME reviews for an average total of 28.98 
responses each.
    Estimated Total Annual Responses: 1,536 (53 review schedules + 53 
review plan development + 1,430 project areas)
    Estimated Time per Response: FNS estimates that it takes 4 hours to 
prepare a review schedule, and that each of the 53 State agencies will 
submit one review schedule per year resulting in a total burden of 212 
hours. FNS estimates that it takes on average approximately 80 hours to 
develop a comprehensive State review plan, resulting in a total of 
4,240 hours.
    FNS estimates that it takes an average of 340 hours to conduct a 
review. It is estimated that ME reviews are conducted for one-half of 
the total number of project areas (1,430).
    Therefore, FNS estimates that it takes approximately 486,200 hours 
annually for State agencies to conduct their reviews.
    FNS also estimates that the time necessary for record keeping, that 
is, the time necessary to find and file a record in the conduct of an 
ME review is .1169 hours per State agency. Therefore, the total amount 
of time for recordkeeping is 180 hours.
