Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, ACL has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Federal statute and regulation require each State Protection and Advocacy (P&A) System to prepare and solicit public comment on a Statement of Goals and Priorities (SGP) for the P&A for Developmental Disabilities (PADD) program for each coming fiscal year. While the P&A is mandated to protect and advocate under a range of different federally authorized disabilities programs, only the PADD program requires an SGP. Following the required public input for the coming fiscal year, the P&As submit the final version of this SGP to the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD). AIDD will aggregate the information in the SGPs into a national profile of programmatic emphasis for P&A Systems in the coming year. This aggregation will provide AIDD with a tool for monitoring of the public input requirement. Furthermore, it will provide an overview of program direction, and permit AIDD to track accomplishments against goals/targets, permitting the formulation of technical assistance and compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. ACL estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,508.
