DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

[Docket No. FR-5603-N-10]


Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; 
Capture Energy Efficiency Measures for PIH (CEEMP)

AGENCY: Office of the Chief Information Officer, HUD.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The proposed information collection requirement described 
below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department 
is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.
    HUD is creating the Capture Energy Efficiency Measures for PIH 
(CEEMP) data system to track the amount and types of Energy 
Conservation Measures (ECMs) being implemented within Public and Indian 
(PIH) units. The CEEMP data system is necessary in order to support the 
Department's Agency Performance Goals (APGs), specifically APG 
13 which sets precise targets for completing green retrofits 
and creating energy efficient units. In addition to the direct support 
of HUD APG 13, the implementation of the CEEMP data system 
will enable HUD to provide reports to OMB on the progress of ECMs 
completed with PIH funding. Without the approval of the CEEMP data 
system, HUD will not be able to track PIH ECMs and will be unable to 
support the Department's APG 13 or provide OMB with ECM 
information.

DATES: Comments Due Date: March 15, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding 
this proposal. Comments should refer to the proposal by name and/or OMB 
approval Number (2577-New) and should be sent to: HUD Desk Officer, 
Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, 
Washington, DC 20503; fax: 202-395-5806. Email: OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov; fax: 202-395-5806.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Colette Pollard, Reports Management 
Officer, QDAM, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh 
Street SW., Washington, DC 20410; email Colette Pollard at 
Colette.Pollard@hud.gov or telephone (202) 402-3400. This is not a 
toll-free number. Copies of available documents submitted to OMB may be 
obtained from Ms. Pollard.
