ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The proposed information collection requirement described below has been 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.
