SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This is a request to renew OMB control number 2700-0092. This 
collection is required to ensure proper accounting of Federal funds and 
property provided under financial assistance awards (grants and 
cooperative agreements). Reporting and recordkeeping are prescribed at 
2 CFR part 1800 for awards issued to nonprofits, institutions of higher 
educations, government, and commercial firms when cost sharing is not 
required and 14 CFR part 1274 for awards issued to commercial firms 
when cost sharing is required.

II. Methods of Collection

    Proposals are submitted through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal 
Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) or Grants.gov. The 
use of these systems reduces the need for proposers to submit multiple 
copies to the agency. It allows proposers to submit multiple proposals 
to different funding announcements without registering each time. 
Electronic funds transfer is used for payment under Treasury guidance, 
for commercial firms and through the HHS Payment Management System 
(PMS) for other recipients. In addition, NASA encourages the use of 
computer technology and is participating in Federal efforts to extend 
the use of information technology to more Government processes.

Basis of Estimate

    Approximately 6,100 NASA financial assistance awards are open at 
any one time. It is estimated that out of the 7,100 proposals received 
each year, NASA awards approximately 1,600 new awards. The period of 
performance for each financial assistance award is usually three to 
five years. NASA had approximately 120 awards with commercial firms. 
Commercial firms submit quarterly payment requests directly to NASA, 
while other recipients submit the Federal Financial Reports (SF 425) on 
a quarterly basis to the HHS PMS. Performance, Property, and Patent 
Reports are filed annually. Historical records indicate that, on 
average, 1,625 changes are submitted annually. The total number of 
respondents is based on the average number of proposals that are 
received each year and the average number of active grants that are 
managed each year. The total number of hours spent on each task was 
estimated through historical records and experience of former 
recipients. Using past calculations, the total cost was estimated using 
the average salary (wages and benefits) for a GS-12 step 5.

III. Data

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
NASA, including whether the information collected has practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of NASA's estimate of the burden (including 
hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (3) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including automated collection techniques
