Information Collection; Request for Public Comments
In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) invites the general public and Federal agencies to comment on a revision of an approved information form (SF-SAC) that is used to report audit results, audit findings, and questioned costs as required by the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996 (31 U.S.C. 7501, et seq.) and OMB Circular A-133, ``Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations.'' The proposed changes are to revise some existing data elements in the form and add other data elements that would make easier for the Federal agencies to identify the types of audit findings reported in the audits performed under the Single Audit Act. The current Form SF- SAC was designed for audit periods ending in 2011and 2012. The proposed revised Form SF-SAC will replace the current form for audit periods ending 2013, 2014 and 2015. The detail proposed changes along with the proposed format are described on OMB Web site at: http:// www.whitehouse.gov/omb/grantsforms/
