1.  The November 14, 1991 delegation of authority, entitled “Redelegation of Clearance Functions Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, Public Law 96-511, as amended,” remains in effect. The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13, as amended by Public Law 105-106, Div E, Title LI, Subtitle C, section 5125(a), assigned Paperwork Reduction Act responsibilities to the Chief Information Officer (CIO). 44 U.S.C. 3506(a)(2)(A). On March 1, 1996, the Secretary by delegation designated the Assistant Secretary for Management and Budget as the CIO, and redelegated authorities pertaining to the Paperwork Reduction Act to the CIO. Such authorities remain with the CIO. Neither the Secretary nor the CIO has rescinded the November 14, 1991 redelegation of Paperwork Reduction Act authorities to the Assistant Secretary for Children and Families, thus the November 14, 1991 redelegation remains in effect.
