CORPORATION FOR NATIONAL AND COMMUNITY SERVICE


Revision of the National Senior Service Corps' Project Progress 
Report (A-1020)

AGENCY: Corporation for National and Community Service.

ACTION: Notice of 30-day OMB review of Project Progress Report.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On June 4, the National Senior Service Corps (NSSC) announced 
a 60-day review and comment period during which project sponsors and 
the public were encouraged to submit comments suggesting revisions to 
the NSSC Project Progress Report (PPR) used by project sponsors 
(grantees) to report progress made toward work plan accomplishment, 
problems encountered, resources generated and budget variances from the 
grant awarded.
    Comments were invited on (1) whether the existing PPR appropriately 
meets project oversight and operational management, planning and 
reporting needs of the Senior Corps programs; (2) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility and clarity of the PPR; (3) accuracy of agency 
estimates of reporting burden; and (4) ways to further reduce burden on 
respondents.
    NSSC is requesting extension of the authorization to use the PPR in 
its current form with grants funded in 1997. However, revising and 
phasing in of a new form in conjunction with planned implementation of 
the impact programming initiative and redesign of the Project Grant 
Application is anticipated for grants funded in 1998.

DATES: The National Senior Service Corps and the Office of Management 
and Budget will consider written comments on the Project Progress 
Report and record keeping requirements which are received within 30 
days from the date of publication.
