Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: Form HUD–92448 is used by Contractors to request insured mortgage proceeds for construction costs. The information regarding completed work items is used by the Multifamily Hub Centers to ensure that payments from mortgage proceeds are made for work completed in a satisfactory manner. The work must be inspected and approved by a HUD Field Office inspector and an architect not employed by HUD. To ensure compliance with prevailing wage rates, the Field Office uses the certification on form HUD–92448 regarding prevailing wages. If the collection of information was not conducted, disbursement of mortgage proceeds and compliance with prevailing wage rates could not be monitored. 29 CFR part 3.3 requires the contractor to submit an executed document certifying adherence to requirements of the Davis Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA) and the Copeland ‘‘Anti-Kickback’’ Act regarding wages paid to employees. The form is completed by the contractor and approved by the project architect and a HUD Field Office inspector and must be signed.

L. 479, 48 Stat. 1246, 12 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to insure mortgages (including advances on such mortgages during construction) for construction of rental housing projects. Section 212 of the National Housing Act prevents the Secretary of HUD from insuring a project unless the principal contractor files a prevailing wage certificate.
