Title of the Collection—HHS Payment Management System Forms -Extension-OMB No. 0937-0200—Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management (ASAM) -Program Support Center (PSC)—Division of Payment Management (DPM).

Abstract: The Division of Payment Management (DPM) is requesting a three year extension of the HHS Payment Management System Forms. Treasury regulations at 31 CFR part 205 and OMB Circulars A-102 and A-110 require advances of Federal funds to be scheduled as closely as possible to the grantee's disbursement needs and payment methods should allow for monthly, bi-weekly or more frequent payments in support of this requirement. The PSC-270 is used by grantees to obtain grant funds. The PSC-272 form is used to monitor federal cash advances to grantees and obtain Federal cash disbursement data. The forms are designed to provide essential cash management information, assist the grantee in meeting accountability requirements, and ensure compatibility between data in the Payment Management System (PMS) operated by DPM and the grantee organization's records.

The PSC-270 form is used monthly by approximately 210 HHS grantees to obtain grant funds and is used in lieu of the SF-270. The computerized PSC-272 form is utilized quarterly by approximately 22,240 grantees of grant awards from HHS and other Federal agencies that are paid through DPM. The forms are completed by State, local and tribal governments, profit and nonprofit businesses and institutions receiving grants from HHS and other Federal agencies serviced by the Division of Payment Management.
