Persons with hearing or speech impairments may access this number via TTY by calling the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877–8339. Copies of available documents submitted to OMB may be obtained from Ms. Pollard. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Proposal: Public Housing Agency Executive Compensation Information. OMB Approval Number: 2577–0272. Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection. Form Number: HUD–52725. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Pursuant to a notice issued annually (most recently PIH Notice 2019–21), HUD collects information on the compensation provided by public housing agencies (PHAs) to its employees. More specifically, under this collection PHAs are to report the compensation paid to the top management official, the top financial official, and all employees who are paid an annual salary over the compensation cap imposed by Congress in HUD’s annual appropriations (Level IV of the Executive Schedule). This reporting is similar to the information that non-profit organizations receiving federal tax exemptions are required to report to the IRS annually. Because PHAs receive significant direct federal funds HUD has been collecting compensation information to enhance regulatory oversight by HUD, as well as by state and local authorities. HUD provides the information collected to the public. The compensation data collected includes base salary, bonus, and incentive and other compensation, and the extent to which these payments are made with any Section 8 and 9 appropriated funds. One of the primary purposes of this amendment to the PHA executive compensation information collection is to reduce the reporting burden on ALL PHAs by moving from an annual collection to collecting one year of data once every three years—this will reduce the reporting burden on PHAs by 66.7%. While HUD may only collect PHA compensation data once every three years, PHAs are still subject to the annual compensation restrictions imposed by Congress. Therefore, all years remain subject to potential review PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 by HUD to ensure compliance with the Annual Appropriations Act. Respondents: Public Housing Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 4,000. Estimated Number of Responses: 4,000. Frequency of Response: Triennially (once every three years). Average Hours per Response: One hour. Total Estimated Burdens: The total burden hours is estimated to be 4,000 hours triennially. The total burden cost is estimated to be $128,080. B. Solicitation of Public Comment This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden 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 those who are to respond; including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to these questions. C. Authority Section 3507 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35. Dated: November 5, 2021.
