SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 7 CFR part 210 National School Lunch Program, Part 220 School Breakfast Program, and Part 215 Special Milk Program. Form Number: (formerly FNS–806A and FNS–806B). OMB Number: 0584–0284. Expiration Date: 04/30/2016. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), and Special Milk Program (SMP) are administered by State agencies; however, in the States of Virginia and Colorado, there are some schools and institutions where these Programs are instead administered directly by the associated USDA FNS Regional Office (as part of a Regional Office Administered Program, or ROAP). The State of Virginia, however, will no longer be using a FNS ROAP as of July 1, 2016. As part of a ROAP, these SFAs and institutions complete a Federal Claim for Reimbursement to receive reimbursement for meals and milk served to children. The forms previously used were forms FNS–806A and FNS–806B, respectively. These SFAs and institutions also complete a Federal application to participate in these Programs. The forms previously used were forms FNS–66, FNS–66A, FNS–66B and were previously part of PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 other information collections (OMB control #0584–0006—7 CFR part 210 National School Lunch Program, expiration date February 29, 2016 and OMB control #0584–0005—7 CFR part 210 Special Milk Program for Children, expiration date November 30, 2018). The information previously collected on these five forms is now entered directly into one computerized web application and payment system (submitted electronically via the Internet) referred to as the Child Nutrition Payments Center (currently administered by the FNS Mid-Atlantic Regional Office). The Child Nutrition (CN) Payment Center is the secure online portal operated by FNS for use by a limited number of institutions and school food authorities (SFAs) within Virginia, Colorado, and U.S. Department of Defense school installations. Through this portal, these SFAs and institutions can submit Program applications and claims for meal reimbursement. With the renewal of this information collection, the five forms are officially being removed and replaced by the electronic system that currently exists. The reporting and recordkeeping requirements for the application information are being incorporated into this information collection since it is part of the same ROAP system. This system fulfills the requirements set forth in NSLP, SBP and SMP regulations issued by the Secretary of Agriculture (7 CFR 210.8 and 220.11; and 215.10) to collect the meal and milk data for the schools and institutions that are directly administered by the ROAP. This information collection is required to administer and operate these programs in accordance with the NSLA. All of the reporting and recordkeeping requirements are currently approved by the Office of Management and Budget and are in force. This is a revision of the currently approved information collection. Affected Public: SFAs and institutions participating in the NSLP, SBP, and SMP administered by a FNS ROAP (as of July 1, 2016 when Virginia will no longer be using a FNS ROAP). Estimated Number of Respondents: 60. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 11. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 660. Reporting Time per Response: 0.5 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: 7 CFR part 210 National School Lunch Program, Part 220 
School Breakfast Program, and Part 215 Special Milk Program.
    Form Number: (formerly FNS-806A and FNS-806B).
    OMB Number: 0584-0284.
    Expiration Date: 04/30/2016.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Abstract: The National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School 
Breakfast Program (SBP), and Special Milk Program (SMP) are 
administered by State agencies; however, in the States of Virginia and 
Colorado, there are some schools and institutions where these Programs 
are instead administered directly by the associated USDA FNS Regional 
Office (as part of a Regional Office Administered Program, or ROAP). 
The State of Virginia, however, will no longer be using a FNS ROAP as 
of July 1, 2016. As part of a ROAP, these SFAs and institutions 
complete a Federal Claim for Reimbursement to receive reimbursement for 
meals and milk served to children. The forms previously used were forms 
FNS-806A and FNS-806B, respectively. These SFAs and institutions also 
complete a Federal application to participate in these Programs. The 
forms previously used were forms FNS-66, FNS-66A, FNS-66B and were 
previously part of other information collections (OMB control #0584-
0006--7 CFR part 210 National School Lunch Program, expiration date 
February 29, 2016 and OMB control #0584-0005--7 CFR part 210 Special 
Milk Program for Children, expiration date November 30, 2018). The 
information previously collected on these five forms is now entered 
directly into one computerized web application and payment system 
(submitted electronically via the Internet) referred to as the Child 
Nutrition Payments Center (currently administered by the FNS Mid-
Atlantic Regional Office).
    The Child Nutrition (CN) Payment Center is the secure online portal 
operated by FNS for use by a limited number of institutions and school 
food authorities (SFAs) within Virginia, Colorado, and U.S. Department 
of Defense school installations. Through this portal, these SFAs and 
institutions can submit Program applications and claims for meal 
reimbursement.
    With the renewal of this information collection, the five forms are 
officially being removed and replaced by the electronic system that 
currently exists. The reporting and recordkeeping requirements for the 
application information are being incorporated into this information 
collection since it is part of the same ROAP system. This system 
fulfills the requirements set forth in NSLP, SBP and SMP regulations 
issued by the Secretary of Agriculture (7 CFR 210.8 and 220.11; and 
215.10) to collect the meal and milk data for the schools and 
institutions that are directly administered by the ROAP. This 
information collection is required to administer and operate these 
programs in accordance with the NSLA. All of the reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements are currently approved by the Office of 
Management and Budget and are in force. This is a revision of the 
currently approved information collection.
    Affected Public: SFAs and institutions participating in the NSLP, 
SBP, and SMP administered by a FNS ROAP (as of July 1, 2016 when 
Virginia will no longer be using a FNS ROAP).
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 60.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 11.
    Estimated Total Annual Responses: 660.
    Reporting Time per Response: 0.5 hours.
