Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection: Comment Request-Form FNS-380-1, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's Quality Control Review Schedule, 28002-28003 [2019-12638]

Download as PDF 28002 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 116 / Monday, June 17, 2019 / Notices the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) to request classification by APHIS. The other way is for APHIS to concur with the classification given to a country or region by the OIE. If the OIE has classified a region as either BSE negligible risk or BSE controlled risk, APHIS will seek information to support concurrence with the OIE classification. This information may be publicly available information, or APHIS may request that regions supply the same information given to the OIE. APHIS will announce in the Federal Register, subject to public comment, its intent to concur with an OIE classification. In accordance with this process, we are giving notice in this document that APHIS intends to concur with the OIE risk classification of Nicaragua as a region of negligible risk for BSE. The OIE recommendation regarding Nicaragua can be viewed at http:// www.oie.int/animal-health-in-theworld/official-disease-status/bse/list-ofbse-risk-status/. The conclusions of the OIE scientific commission for Nicaragua can be viewed at http://www.oie.int/ fileadmin/Home/eng/Internationa_ Standard_Setting/docs/pdf/SCAD/A_ SCAD_Feb2018.pdf (page 47). After reviewing any comments we receive, we will announce our final determination regarding the BSE classification of Nicaragua in the Federal Register, along with a discussion of and response to pertinent issues raised by commenters. If APHIS recognizes Nicaragua as negligible risk for BSE, the Agency will include that region on the list of regions of negligible risk for BSE that is available to the public on the Agency’s website at https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ ourfocus/animalhealth/animal-andanimal-product-import-information/ animal-health-status-of-regions.

Title: Worksheet for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program’s Quality Control Reviews. Form Number: FNS 380. OMB Control Number: 0584–0074. Expiration Date: September 30, 2019. Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 16 of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 provides the legislative basis for the operation of the Quality Control (QC) system. Part 275, Subpart C, of SNAP regulations implements the legislative mandates found in Section 16. Regulations at 7 CFR 275.1, 275.14(d) and 275.21(a) and (b)(1) provide the regulatory basis for the QC reporting requirements. Section 11(a) of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 provides the legislative basis for the recordkeeping requirements. SNAP regulations, at 7 CFR 272.1(f), specify that program records must be retained for three years from the month of origin. Regulations at 7 CFR 275.4 specifically address record retention requirements for form FNS– 380. Form FNS–380, is a SNAP worksheet used to determine eligibility and benefits for households selected for review in the QC sample of active SNAP cases. This form provides a systematic means of aiding the State’s Quality Control Reviewer in analyzing the case record, planning and doing field investigation and gathering, comparing, analyzing and evaluating data. We estimate the total reporting burden for the collection of information to support SNAP QC as 428,745.53 hours. This includes approximately 8.9 hours for State Agencies to analyze each household case record including planning and carrying out the field investigation; gathering, comparing, analyzing and evaluating the review data and forwarding selected cases to the Food and Nutrition Service for PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28003 Federal validation, totaling approximately 404,923.30 hours for the entire caseload. We are also including an average interview burden of 30 minutes (0.5 hours) for each household, creating a reporting burden for them for 22,748.50 hours. Additionally, we estimate the recordkeeping burden per record for the State Agencies to be 0.0236 hours, thereby making the recordkeeping burden associated with this information collection for the State Agencies to be 1,073.73 hours. The total estimated reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection is 428,745.53 hours and 136,491 total annual responses for reporting and recordkeeping. Based on the most recent table of active case sample sizes and completion rates (FY2017), we estimate 45,497 FNS–380 worksheets and interviews will now be completed annually. We are requesting a three-year approval from OMB for this information collection. Affected Public: 45,550 (Households, and State, Local and Tribal Governments: Respondent groups identified include: 45,497 Households and 53 State Agencies). Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1,718 (The total number of responses per household is 1 and total number of responses per State, Local and Tribal Governments is 1,717 to include reporting and recordkeeping responses). Estimated Total Annual Responses: 136,491. This includes 45,497 sampled active cases for QC review, 45,497 reporting households, and 45,497 records being maintained by 53 State Agencies. Estimated Time per Response: 9.42 hours (The estimated time of response for State Agencies to report is approximately 534 minutes, 30 minutes for households to report, and the estimated response time for State Agencies to do recordkeeping is approximately 1.42 minutes. Therefore, the total time per response is approximately 565.42 minutes or 9.42 hours.) Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 428,745.53 hours. This includes 405,997.03 for State Agencies reporting and recordkeeping plus 27,748.50 Households reporting only. See the table below for estimated total annual burden for each type of respondent.
