Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed recordkeeping requirement in 45 CFR 2540.205-.206. CNCS grantees and subgrantees must maintain records to demonstrate completion of National Service Criminal History Checks.
(2) By hand delivery or by courier to the CNCS mailroom at Room 8100 at the mail address given in paragraph (1) above, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.
(3) By fax to: (202) 606-3467, Attention: Paperwork Reduction Act.
(4) Electronically, through www.regulations.gov. Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TTY-TDD) may call 1-800-833-3722 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
CNCS is particularly interested in comments that:
• Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of CNCS, including whether the information will have practical utility;
• Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
• Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
• Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are expected to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology (e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses).
The Serve America Act requires CNCS grantees and subgrantees to conduct a National Service Criminal History Check. CNCS and its grantees must ensure that national service beneficiaries are protected from harm and the recordkeeping requirements of the final rule are critical to that responsibility.
CNCS requests renewal of the recordkeeping requirement previously approved under an emergency clearance.
The requirements will be used in the same manner as the existing application. CNCS also seeks to continue using the current application until the revised application is approved by OMB. The current application is due to expire on March 31, 2013.
Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval; they will also become a matter of public record.
