Type of Request: Extension, without change, of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The purpose of the Performance Reporting System (PRS) is to ensure that each State agency and project area is operating the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in accordance with the requirements of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) (7 U.S.C. 2011, et seq.), as amended, and corresponding program regulations. Under Section 11 of the Act (7 U.S.C. 2020), State agencies must maintain necessary records to ascertain that SNAP is operating in compliance with the Act and regulations and must make these records available to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) for inspection and audit. Per Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 275, each State agency is required to submit one Management Evaluation (ME) review schedule every one, two, or three years, depending on the project area make-up of the State, unless the State receives approval for an alternative Management Evaluation review schedule. Under 7 CFR part 275, each State must establish a system for analysis and evaluation of all data available to the State. Data analysis and evaluation is an ongoing process that facilitates the development of effective and prompt corrective action. Under 7 CFR part 275, State agencies must prepare a corrective action plan (CAP) addressing identified deficiencies. The State agencies must develop a system for monitoring and evaluating corrective action and submit CAP updates, as necessary. Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Government; Respondent Type: SNAP State and local agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 53 State agencies. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: State agencies will submit one review schedule and one corrective action plan per year, and will conduct and document ME reviews for an average total of 27 project areas, totaling 29 responses per State agency. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 1,537 (53 State agencies * 29 estimated responses per State Agency). Estimated Time per Response: FNS estimates that it takes 4 hours to prepare a review schedule, and that each of the 53 State agencies will submit one review schedule per year resulting in a total burden of 212 hours (53 State E:\FR\FM\26JNN1.SGM 26JNN1
