    1. Placement Authorization (Form P-1): This instrument is used by

minutes.
    2. Authorization for Medical, Dental, and Mental Health Care (Form 
P-2): This instrument is used by ORR to authorize a care provider to 
provide medical, dental, and mental health care services to UAC placed

by care provider facilities and ORR Federal staff to process 
recommendations and decisions for transfers to an influx care facility. 
This is a new instrument that ORR plans to add to this collection.

providers to track the physical transfer of the UAC and their 
belongings. ORR revised the formatting and reworded some of the fields.

(Form P-12): This instrument is used by care providers and ORR to track 
certain information related to care provider programs, such as 
location, contact information, bed capacity, state licensure, grant 
information, monitoring, and program census. ORR greatly expanded this 
instrument to track multiple types of information related to care 
provider programs. The average burden minutes per response was 
increased from 5 to 30 minutes. In addition to bed capacity, this 
instrument contains the following information:
    [cir] An overview of the program that includes name, status, parent 
entity, type, address, region, and acceptable placement types.

instrument is used by referring Federal agencies and care providers to 
create a profile for a UAC from which all information related to their 
case can be accessed. Previously, the purpose of this instrument was to 
(1) create an initial profile and (2) receive/process referrals. The 
function of receiving/processing referrals and the related fields from 
the Add New UAC instrument were moved to the UAC Referral instrument, 
as noted above in the description of changes for UAC Referral. The 
function of creating an initial profile in the system and related 
fields containing basic UAC information remain with this instrument. 
However, this purpose of this instrument has been expanded. It now acts 
as a hub where users can assess all records related to a UAC's case. 
Most of the records accessible from the UAC Profile are being cleared 
as separate instruments, either in this or another one of ORR's 
information collections. The sections being cleared under this 
instrument are as follows: Profile Information, Program Designation, 
Legal-Immigration, Legal-Administrative, System Information, 
Apprehended Relationships, Other Relationships, Adult Contact 
Relationships, Entity Team, and Documents. The average burden minutes 
per response was increased from 15 to 45 minutes.

Change of Address/Change of Venue (Form P-14): This instrument is used 
by care providers to notify DHS of the transfer of a UAC within the ORR 
care provider network so that DHS may file a Motion for Change of Venue 
and/or Change of Address with the Executive Office for Immigration 
Review to ensure the UAC's immigration case is transferred to the local 
immigration court, if applicable. ORR revised the formatting, but no 
changes were made to the content.
    15. Family Group Entity (Form P-15): This instrument is used by the 
ORR Intakes Team to associate UACs who are members of the same family 
with each other. This is a new instrument that ORR plans to add to this 
collection.
    16. Influx Transfer Manifest (Form P-16): This instrument is used 
by designated care provider staff and ORR staff to plan, track, and 
notify stakeholders of group transfers to an influx care facility. This 
is a new instrument that ORR plans to add to this collection.
    17. Influx Transfer Manual and Prescreen Review (Form P-17): This 
instrument is used by designated care provider staff to evaluate each 
UAC's eligibility to be transferred to an influx care facility. Care 
provider staff review and update information on daily during times of

collection.
    Respondents: ORR grantee and contractor staff; other Federal 
agencies.
