SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 January 25, 2021 at 86 FR 6905.

A. Overview of Information Collection

Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Contracting with Resident-Owned Businesses/Application Requirements.

OMB Approval Number: 2577-0161.

Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Form Numbers: N/A.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: PHAs that enter contracts with resident-owned businesses prior to December 26, 2014 must comply with the requirements/procedures set forth in, 24 CFR 85.36(h) and 24 CFR 85.36(i). Contracts with resident-owned businesses entered after December 26, 2014 must also comply with 24 CFR part 963, 2 CFR 200.325, 2 CFR 200.326 and other such contract terms that may be applicable to procurement under the Department's regulations. These requirements include:

  • Certified copies of any State, county, or municipal licenses that may be required of the business to engage in the type of business activity for which it was formed. Where applicable, the PHA must obtain a certified copy of its corporate charter or other organizational document that verifies that the business was properly formed in accordance with State law.
  • Certification that shows the business is owned by residents, disclosure documents that indicate all owners of the business and each owner's percentage of the business along with sufficient evidence that demonstrates to the satisfaction of the PHA that the business has the ability to perform successfully under the terms and conditions of the proposed contract.
  • Certification as to the number of contracts awarded, and the dollar amount of each contract award received under the alternative procurement process; and
  • Contract award documents, proof of bonding documents, independent cost estimates and comparable price analyses.

Members of Affected Public: Public Housing Agencies and Applicable Resident Entrepreneurs.

Estimation of the Total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of Start Printed Page 19278respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: Estimated number of respondents: 76. The calculation for burden hours is as follows: Calculation for number of respondents: 76 (estimated number of PHAs contracting with resident owned businesses) × 24 (number of hours for procurement process) = 1,824 total hours. The Department estimates that out of a total of 3,775 [1] PHAs only 2 percent or 76 PHAs contract with resident owned business. This number is less than the previous request due to several PHAs choosing to leave the program.

The national average PHA staff salary = $51,000 [2] per year or $24.00 [3] per hour.

The calculation for costs is as follows: 76 PHAs × 24 hours = 1,824 hours × $24 = $43,776.
