Privacy Act of 1974; Republication To Delete and Update Privacy Act System of Records Notifications; Correction
On February 6, 2013, HUD issued a notice in the Federal Register entitled, ``Republication to Delete and Update Privacy Act System of Records Notifications''. Moreover, HUD inadvertently repeated in the ``Prefatory Statement of General Routine Uses'' two routine uses. This duplication was made in error and this notice corrects that error, and updates the total number of Prefatory Statements of General Routine Uses reported under that notice.
Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Public Housing Authority Executive Compensation Information
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. HUD is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. Pursuant to PIH Notice 2011-48, HUD has been collecting information on the compensation provided by public housing authorities (PHAs) to their five most highly compensated employees, similar to the information that nonprofit organizations receiving federal tax exemptions are required to report to the IRS annually. Since PHAs receive significant direct federal funds, such compensation information has been collected by HUD to enhance oversight by HUD and by state and local authorities. After HUD began this information collection, Congress included a provision in its fiscal year 2012 appropriations legislation that placed a specific cap on the use of Section 8 and Section 9 funds to pay the salaries of PHA officials. To obtain information that will help HUD determine PHA compliance with this and future legislation, and to achieve the same overall objectives of the original information collection, HUD is revising the data collection instrument to collect information on base salary, and bonus and incentive compensation, and the extent to which such payments are made with federal funds. Changes include obtaining data on total cash compensation paid for with Section 8 and Section 9 funds. The new elements replace several segments such as ``Reportable Compensation from PHA and Related Organizations'' and ``Contributions to Employee Benefit Plans and Deferred Compensation from the PHA and Related Organizations and ``Contributions to Employee Benefit Plans and Deferred Compensation from the PHA and Related Organizations''.
