SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES A. Purpose Firms performing under incrementally funded, costreimbursement Federal contracts are required to notify the contracting officer in writing whenever they have reason to believe— (1) The costs the contractors expect to incur under the contracts in the next 60 days, when added to all costs previously incurred, will exceed 75 percent of the estimated cost of the contracts; or (2) The total cost for the performance of the contracts will be greater or substantially less than estimated. As a part of the notification, the contractors must provide a revised estimate of total cost. The frequency of this collection of information is variable, contingent upon both funding and spending patterns. A notice was published in the Federal Register at 81 FR 21873 on April 13, 2016. No comments were received. However, three changes were made to the annual reporting burden estimates conveyed in the preliminary 60-day notice. First, the initial estimate included data on certain fixed-price and cost-sharing contracts, subsequently deemed not directly impacted by the FAR clauses 52.232–20 and 52.232–22; those data points have been removed from the estimate for this collection. Accordingly, the number of contract actions has been reduced. Secondly, the number of responses per respondent has been reassessed at one per year in lieu of five; this is consistent with updated data, based on consultation with subject matter experts within the Government. Third, the estimated time to produce each funding letter was reduced from 1⁄2 hour to 1⁄3 hour, as office software applications continue to improve, making basic computations, word processing, and communication increasingly efficient. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 123,392. Responses per Respondent: 1. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:27 Jul 22, 2016 Jkt 238001 Total Annual Responses: 123,392. Hours per Response: 0.33.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Title: State Court Improvement Program. OMB No.: 0970–0307. Description: The Court Improvement Program (CIP) is a mandatory formula grant funded under section 438 of the Social Security Act, and most recently reauthorized under the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–34). The purpose of the CIP is to facilitate the handling of child welfare cases in the courts. All 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia receive grants under the program. The program requires two submissions annually from grantees that constitute information collections under the Paperwork Reduction Act. The purpose of this notice is to request an extension of the Office of Management and Budget Control Number 0907–0307 permitting continued use of the information collections required by ACF–CB–PI–12– 02. The burden estimates are provided below. The Administration on Children, Youth, and Families anticipates issuing a new Program Instruction for federal fiscal year 2017. Following the publication of the first Federal Register notice, the Children’s Bureau engaged in a number of outreach activities to seek additional input from grantees and experts in the field on how best to reduce grantee burden, ensure that the reporting process was useful to grantees, and maximize the ability to evaluate the program overall. These efforts have resulted in the decision to require one annual submission, as opposed to two submissions. The annual submission will include: (1) A self-assessment, and (2) a strategic plan. The self-assessment requires the grantees to identify the topical work areas of the last year, identify strengths, challenges and need for technical assistance. The self-assessment has been designed with user/grantee input with the intention of minimizing burden and maximizing usefulness of the process and product to the grantee. The strategic plan identifies projects and activities and intended results for the coming year. The strategic plan was also developed with grantee input. A full application will be due once every five years. The full application will require a five year strategic plan, letters of commitment from the highest court of appeal and state title IV–E/IV– B agency, a budget narrative, and a list of all statewide task force members. Taken together, the changes reduce the overall burden hours from years past and those anticipated in the previous Federal Register notice by approximately 50%. Respondents: Highest State Court.
