Proposed Project: Grants for Hospital Construction and Modernization—Federal Right of Recovery and Waiver of Recovery (42 CFR Part 124, Subpart H) (OMB No. 0915-0099 Extension)
The regulation known as “Federal Right of Recovery and Waiver of Recovery,” provides a means for the Federal Government to recover grant funds and a method of calculating interest when a grant-assisted facility under Titles VI and XVI of the Public Health Service Act is sold or leased, or there is a change in use of the facility. It also allows for a waiver of the right of recovery under certain circumstances. Facilities are required to provide written notice to the Federal Government when such a change occurs: and to provide copies of sales contacts, lease agreements, estimates of current assets and liabilities, value of equipment, expected value of land on the new owner's books and remaining depreciation for all fixed assets involved in the transactions, and other information and documents pertinent to the change of status.
Estimates of annualized burden are as follows:
|Form||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Reporting requirements 124,704(b) and 707||10||1||10||1.25||12.5|
