This Notice also lists the following information:
Title of Proposal: Multifamily Contractor's/Mortgagor's Cost Breakdown and Certifications.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0044.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Contractors use the form HUD-2328 to establish a schedule of values of construction items on which the monthly advances or mortgage proceeds are based. Contractors use the form HUD-92330-A 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 costs, HUD-92330-A further protects the interest of the Department by directly monitoring the accuracy of the itemized trades on form HUD-2328. This form also serves as project data to keep Field Office cost data banks and cost estimates current and accurate. 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-2205-A, HUD-2328, and HUD-92330-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 burden hours needed to prepare the information collection is 3,680; the number of respondents is 675 generating approximately 675 annual responses; the frequency of response is on occasion; and the estimated time needed to prepare the response varies from 4 hours to 8 hours.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.Start Signature
