Child Care and Development Fund Error Rate Reporting
Document Number: E7-3664
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-02
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
This proposed rule revises the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) regulations to provide for the reporting of error rates in the expenditure of CCDF grant funds by the fifty States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The error rate reports will serve to implement provisions of the Improper Payments Information Act of 2002 (IPIA) and the President's Management Agenda (PMA)'s goal of ``Eliminating Improper Payments.'' For reasons that will be explained in the preamble to the rule, the initial information collection under this proposed rule will require States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to review and report on a random sample of cases estimated to achieve the calculation of annual improper authorizations for payment (rather than improper payments made) with a 90 percent confidence interval of +/-5.0 percent.
