This request is for the clearance of on-site data collection from public housing agencies (PHAs) to test the methodology for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Administrative Fee study. The purpose of the study is to collect accurate information on the costs of administering the HCV program across a representative sample of high performing and efficient PHAs and to use this information to develop a new administrative fee allocation formula for the HCV program. The study is proceeding in multiple phases. This request is for data collection to test the methodology for estimating program costs in the study. We propose to use two main methods for collecting cost data: (1) Measuring the time that front line staff spend working on the program and translating that time into costs using the salaries and benefits of the staff doing the work and adjusting for market factors; and (2) collecting information via interviews and document review on the overhead costs and other costs related to HCV program administration that cannot be captured by measuring staff time spent on the program. We will test these data collection approaches at between 5 and 10 PHAs across the country. The results of the pretest will be used to refine the methodology used for the full study of administrative fees with a larger sample of PHAs.
