Title of Proposal: Multifamily Contractor's, Mortgagor's, Borrower's Cost Breakdowns and Certification.
OMB Control Number, if Applicable: 2502-0044.
Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: Form HUD-2328 is used by contractors to establish a schedule of values of construction items on which the monthly advances or mortgage proceeds are based. HUD-92330-A is used by contractors to convey actual construction costs in a standardized format of cost certification. In addition to assuring that the mortgage proceeds have not been used for purposes other than construction cost, form HUD-92330-A further protects the interest of the Department by directly monitoring the accuracy of the itemized trades in form HUD-2328, and also serves as project data to keep field office cost data banks and cost estimates current and accurate. HUD-2205 is used to certify the actual construction and improvement costs of Section 220 and 234 projects. HUD-2205-A is used to certify the actual costs of acquisition or refinancing of projects insured under the Section 223(f) program.
Agency Form Numbers, if Applicable: HUD-2328, HUD-92330-A, HUD-2205, HUD-2205-A.
Estimation of the Total Numbers of Hours Needed to Prepare the Information Collection Including Number of Respondents, Frequency of Response, and Hours of Response: The estimated number of respondents for form HUD-2328 is 500, the frequency of responses is 1, the number of hours per response is 8, for a total of 4,000 annual burden hours. The estimated number of respondents for form HUD-92330-A is 350, the frequency of responses is 1, the number of hours per response is 16, for a total of 5,600 annual burden hours. The estimated number of respondents for form HUD-2205 is 10, the frequency of responses is 1, the hours per response is 8, for a total of 80 annual burden hours. The estimated number of respondents for form HUD-2205-A is 75, the frequency of responses is 1, the number of hours per response is 8, for a total of 600 annual burden hours.
