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 30 days of publication. OMB is required to make a decision concerning the collection of information between 30 and 60 days after publication of this document in the Federal Register. Therefore, a comment is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication.


Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent directly to the following: Office of Management and Budget, Paperwork Reduction Project, Email: OIRA_SUBMISSION@OMB.EOP.GOV, Attn: Desk Officer for the Administration for Children and Families.

Copies of the proposed collection may be obtained 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.
