Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Office of the Chief Information Officer, HUD.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The proposed information collection requirement described below will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.

HUD is creating the Capture Energy Efficiency Measures for PIH (CEEMP) data system to track the amount and types of Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) being implemented within Public and Indian (PIH) units. The CEEMP data system is necessary in order to support the Department's Agency Performance Goals (APGs), specifically APG #13 which sets precise targets for completing green retrofits and creating energy efficient units. In addition to the direct support of HUD APG #13, the implementation of the CEEMP data system will enable HUD to provide reports to OMB on the progress of ECMs completed with PIH funding. Without the approval of the CEEMP data system, HUD will not be able to track PIH ECMs and will be unable to support the Department's APG #13 or provide OMB with ECM information.

DATES:

Comments Due Date: February 6, 2012.

ADDRESSES:

Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding this proposal. Comments should refer to the proposal by name and/or OMB Control Number (2577-New) and should be sent to: HUD Desk Officer Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503: Fax (202) 395-5806.
