Title of Proposal: Mortgagor's Certificate of Actual Cost.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0112.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD Form-92330 is used to obtain data from the mortgagor relative to the actual cost of the project. The mortgagor is required by law to create and maintain records necessary to audit project costs at final endorsement. The actual data is reviewed by HUD staff to determine that the mortgagor's originally endorsed mortgage is supported by the applicable percentage of approved costs. Failure to receive and review the cost certification data would result in the Department's over insurance of the mortgage in violation of the law.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-92330.
Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: An estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection is 4,000. The number of respondents is 500. The number of hours per response is 8. The form is submitted only once during the final endorsement period of the mortgage.
Status of the proposed information collection: Reinstatement, without change, of previously approved collection for which approval has expired.Start Signature
