This recordkeeping requirement, located in 45 CFR 2540.205-.206, may be obtained by contacting Amy Borgstrom, (202) 606-6930 or by email at aborgstrom@cns.gov. Because CNCS requested OMB's approval of this emergency request by September 27, 2012, there will not be enough time for the public to provide comments through this Federal Register Notice before the approval date. Therefore, there will be no comment period for this request. Type of Review: Emergency request. Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service. Title: Recordkeeping Requirement.

Description: The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) will issue the final rule implementing the Serve America Act's National Service Criminal History Check rule. In an effort to be compliant while maintaining functions essential to the operations of each CNCS grantee, we are therefore submitting the enclosed request under 5 CFR 1320.13 to OMB for emergency processing and approval of recordkeeping requirements. CNCS and its grantees must ensure that national service beneficiaries are protected from harm and the recordkeeping requirements of the final rule are critical to that responsibility. Moreover, as CNCS and OMB have previously communicated, CNCS is working hard to ensure it is fully compliant with the Paperwork Reduction Act and with OMB's information collection policies and procedures. If you have any questions, contact Amy Borgstrom at 202-606-6930 or aborgstrom@cns.gov.

Notice Inviting Informal Public Comment on Training and Technical Assistance and Disability Inclusion Programming
Document Number: 2012-14014
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-11
Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is inviting informal public comment from the public concerning the development and implementation of a unified training and technical assistance (TTA) strategy and disability inclusion programming for all CNCS programs. This input will be used to inform competitive processes for funding TTA as we transition from a formula-based methodology to competitive processes. The new budget environment requires a more focused and outcome- oriented strategy for TTA and disability programming. Our desired outcomes for TTA center on performance measurement and management, member/volunteer development and impact, as well as assisting programs in meeting requirements related to fiscal and program compliance. For disability inclusion, our goal is to increase the numbers of people with disabilities serving in national service programs. Stakeholder feedback on the most effective way to address these outcomes will be helpful to CNCS as we plan and prepare for this work. We will accept comments in writing, as described below, or in person at a listening session at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in Chicago, June 19, 2012. We will also hold two conference calls before the end of the comment period (please see schedule below). Please see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for topics to consider when formulating input. CNCS will not respond individually to those providing input, but will consider comments in preparing for future competitions. Please note that this Notice does not request comments on individual application forms used under the various programs of CNCS. CNCS periodically publishes separate requests for comment concerning such application forms.
