Summary of Information Collection

    Respondents are LRAs that have executed EDC agreements with a 
Military Department that transferred property from a closed military 
installation. As provided by Public Law 101-510 such agreements require 
that the LRA reinvest the proceeds from any sale or lease of EDC 
property (or any portion thereof) during at least the first seven years 
after the date of the initial transfer of the property to support the 
economic redevelopment of, or related to, the installation. The 
Secretary of Defense may recoup from the LRA such portion of these 
proceeds not used to support the economic redevelopment of, or related 
to, the installation. Military Departments monitor LRA compliance with 
this provision by requiring an annual financial statement certified by 
an independent Certified Public Accountant. No specific form is
