OMB No.: 0970–0230. Description: There is no longer a High Performance Bonus associated with this information collection. The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–171) eliminated the funding for the High Performance Bonus (HPB), but we are still requesting that States continue to submit data necessary to calculate the work measures previously reported under the HPB. Specifically, The TANF program was reauthorized under the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. The statute PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Number of responses per respondent 1 1 1 Average burden hours per response .25 .75 .25 Total burden hours 13,800 41,400 13,800 eliminated the funding for the HPB under section 403(a)(4). Nevertheless the Department is required under section 413(d) to annually rank State performance in moving TANF recipients into private sector employment. We are, therefore, requesting that States continue to transmit monthly files of adult TANF recipients necessary to calculate the work measures performance data. To the extent States do not provide the requested information, we will extract the matching information from the TANF Data Report. This may result in calculation of the work performance measures based on sample data, which would provide us less precise information on States’ performance. The Transmission File Layouts form provides the format that States will continue to use for the quarterly electronic transmission of monthly data on TANF adult recipients. States that have separate TANF–MOE files on these programs are also requested to transmit similar files. We are not requesting any changes to the Transmission File Layouts form. Respondents: Respondents may include any of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. E:\FR\FM\16DEN1.SGM 16DEN1
