Start Preamble


Children's Bureau; Administration for Children and Families; HHS.


Request for public comment.


The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting a revision of the CCWIS information collection authorized by the CCWIS Final Rule (81 FR 35450-35482). The Automated Function List and the Data Quality Plan are revised to be annual submissions of updates with no change to the burden hours per year. Initial submission of the Automated Function List, the Data Quality Plan, and the Notice of Intent have been removed, as we do not expect to receive more than the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) threshold in a single year. There are no required instruments associated with this data collection.


Comments due within 60 days of publication. In compliance with the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above.


Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by emailing Alternatively, copies can also be obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: OPRE Reports Clearance Officer. All requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the information collection.
