This Notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
This Notice also lists the following information:
Title of Proposal: Multifamily Contractor's/Mortgagor's Cost Breakdowns and Certifications.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0044.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Contractors use the form HUD-2328 to establish a schedule of values of construction items on which the monthly advances or mortgage proceeds are based. Contractors use the form HUD-92330-A to convey actual construction costs in a standardized format of cost certification. In addition to assuring that the mortgage proceeds have not been used for purposes other than construction costs, HUD-92330-A further protects the interest of the Department by directly monitoring the accuracy of the itemized trades on form HUD-2328. This form also serves as project data to keep Field Office cost data banks and cost estimates current and accurate. HUD-92205A is used to certify the actual costs of acquisition or refinancing of projects insured under Section 223(f) program.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-2328, HUD-92330-A, and HUD-92205-A.
Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The number of burden hours is 5,840. The number of respondents is 350, the number of responses is 780, the frequency of response is on occasion, and the burden hour per responses is 5.
Status of the proposed information collection: Reinstatement with change of a previously approved collection.
Dated: May 24, 2012.

Acting General Deputy Assistant Secretary for Housing-Acting General Deputy Federal Housing Commissioner.
