Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR part 1320, which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13) require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8 (d)). This notice identifies an information collection activity that the Office of Acquisition and Property Management has submitted to OMB for renewal. Form DI-381, Claim For Relocation Payments—Residential, and DI-382, Claim For Relocation Payments—Nonresidential, provide the means for the applicant to present allowable moving expenses and certify to occupancy status, after having been displaced because of Federal acquisition of their real property.
II. Method of Collection
Individuals or businesses displaced by Federal acquisition of their real property will submit either Form DI-381 or DI-382, respectively. These forms give the claimant the opportunity to provide the information needed to determine the amount of the financial claim which would remunerate the individual or business for costs incurred as a result of the loss of the property as well as certain moving costs and other associated costs. For example, the residential Form provides for itemization of downpayment and incidental expenses. The non-residential Form provides for itemization of the type of concern or business, moving and storage expenses, reasonable search expenses, direct loss of personal property, and reestablishment expenses, for example. Without such forms, it would not be possible to acquire the precise information associated with the permissible reimbursements permitted under the statute.
