Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 10522 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 37 / Tuesday, February 25, 2014 / Notices Type of Request: Reinstatement of a collection without change in the substance or method of collection. Affected Entities: Potential applicants and/or grantees who received our grant application kit. Also applicants who have received a grant from FMCS. Frequency: a. Three of the forms, the SF–424, LM–6, and LM–9 are submitted at the applicant/grantee’s discretion. b. To conduct the quarterly submissions, LM–7and LM–8 forms are used. Less than quarterly reports would deprive FMCS of the opportunity to provide prompt technical assistance to deal with those problems identified in the report. c. Once per application. The LM–3 is the only form to which a ‘‘similar information’’ requirement could apply. Acceptance of a recent audit report without deficiencies is acceptable. Abstract: Except for the FMCS Forms LM–3 and LM–9, the forms under consideration herein are either required or recommended in OMB Circulars. The two exceptions are non-recurring forms, the former a questionnaire sent only to non-public sector potential grantees and the latter a questionnaire sent only to former grantees for voluntary completion and submission. The collected information is used by FMCS to determine annual applicant suitability, to monitor quarterly grant project status, and for on-going program evaluation. If the information were not collected, there could be no accounting for the activities of the program. Actual use has been the same as intended use. Burden: The Application for Federal Assistance (SF–424) is an OMB form with no agency additions. The estimated average time burden per respondent: 30 minutes. Estimated average number of responses: 35. The Request for Advance for Advance or Reimbursement SF–270 (LM–6) and the Financial Status Report SF–269a (LM–7) are also OMB forms with no agency additions. The estimated average time burden per respondent per form: 30 minutes and approximate number of responses: 20. Project Performance (LM–8) had approximately 20 respondents and the estimated time per response is 20 minutes. FMCS Grants Program Evaluation Questionnaire (LM–9) number of respondents is approximately 10 and the estimated time per response is 60 minutes. The Accounting System and Financial Capability Questionnaire (LM–3) has approximately 20 respondents and the estimated time per response is 60 minutes. II. Request for Comments The FMCS is particularly interested in comments which: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Feb 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated electronic collection technologies or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic and fax submission of responses.
