The Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Secretary publishes a list of information collections it has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) and 5 CFR 1320.5. The following are those information collections recently submitted to OMB.
1. Financial Summary of Obligations and Expenditures of Block Grant Funds (45 CFR 96.30)—0990-0236—Extension—Public Law 101-510 amended 31 U.S.C. Chapter 15 to provide that, by the end of the fifth fiscal year after the fiscal year in which the Federal government obligated the funds, the account will be cancelled. If valid charges to a cancelled account are presented after cancellation, they may be honored only by charging them to a current appropriation account, not to exceed an amount equal to one percent of the total appropriations of that account. Because of the need to determine the status of grant accounts to comply with this statutory provision, it is necessary to require an annual report on obligations and/or expenditures from all grantees under the block grant programs.
