This notice informs the public that HUD has submitted to OMB a request for approval of the information collection described in Section A. The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on September 23, 2020 at 85 FR 59817.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Grant Drawdown Payment Request/LOCCS/VRS Voice Activated.
OMB Approval Number: 2577-0166.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Form Numbers: 50080-CFP; 50080-OFND; 50080-SC; 50080-PHTA; 50080-URP; 50080-FSS; 50080-IHBG; 50080-TIHD.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: On April 17, 2017, the Grant Drawdown Payment Request/Voice Response System (VRS) was converted to a Business Partner Registration and Secure Systems for both the user and the user's Approving Official. The Secure Systems supports many HUD applications, one of which is Line of Credit Control System (eLOCCS) . The eLOCCS is implementing a Single Sign-On solution under Secure Systems, where Grant recipients will be recognized and authenticated based on a Secure System ID and will no longer separately Sign-in to eLOCCS. Grant recipients use LOCCS system to request funds from HUD by signing into Secure Systems, as they normally do, and select the Line of Credit Control System (eLOCCS) link. Some Grantees (all new or reinstated users who need to access eLOCCS) will need to complete the LOCCS HUD-27054E form, have it notarized, send the original HUD-27054E LOCCS Access Authorization Form (with the original Start Printed Page 3176signature and notary seal) via U.S. Mail to the Program Office for review. The LOCCS system will automatically generate an Access Authorization email letting the user know that HUD-27054E has been processed, enabling grantees to access their eLOCCS account. The information collected on the payment voucher will also be used as an internal control measure to ensure the lawful and appropriate disbursement of Federal funds as well as provide a service to program recipients.
