OMB Control Number, if Applicable: 2502-0548.
Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: The FHA Inspector Roster is a national listing of FHA approved inspectors who determine the quality of construction of houses before they can be accepted as security for FHA insured loans. The use of qualified inspectors is critical to minimizing the placement of FHA mortgage insurance on poorly constructed dwellings. FHA approved mortgages use the FHA Inspector Roster to select qualified inspectors.

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 number of respondents is 1,000, the frequency of response is on occasion, and the burden hours are 3.5 hours per submission. The cost of providing the information is $30.00 per hour, for a total annual cost to respondents of $105,000 (1,000 x 3.5 x $30 = $105,000).
Status of the Proposed Information Collection: Request for extension of a currently approved collection. The form HUD-92563, is currently approved under OMB Control Number 2502-0538 with an expiration date of 06/30/2006.Start Signature
