Notice of Public Information Collections Being Reviewed by the U.S. Agency for International Development; Comments Requested
DATES: Submit comments on or before November 25, 2002.
U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is making efforts to reduce the paperwork burden. USAID invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act for 1995. Comments are requested concerning: (a) Whether the proposed or continuing collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the burden estimates; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Proposed collection; comment request,
OMB No.: OMB 0412.
Form No.: N/A.
Title: PVO Classification Form.
Type of Review: New.
Purpose: The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) requires all private voluntary organizations (PVOs) that wish to be eligible to compete for most forms of foreign economic assistance administered by USAID to register with the Agency. Registration provides a resource for USAID officials to access financial and program information on PVOs. The PVO Registry is a central clearinghouse for information on PVOs working in countries where elsewhere the U.S. Government would not have knowledge of the activities.
To confirm the data is collected in a formalized and consistent
manner, USAID has developed the Classification Form's list of sectors
and countries that will show where qualified and interested PVOs registered with USAID are working.
Annual Reporting Burden:
Total annual responses: 450.
Total annual hours requested: 150 hours.
