Title: Advance of Loan Funds and
Budgetary Control and Other Related
OMB Control Number: 0572–0015.
Expiration Date of Approval: February
28, 2022.
Type of Request: Revision of currently
approved collection.
Abstract: The Rural Utilities Service,
an Agency with the United States
Department of Agriculture, Rural
Development, administers the electric
loan and loan guarantee program
authorized under the Rural
Electrification Act of 1936 (7 U.S.C. 901
et seq). In order to protect and ensure
the Government’s security interest in
loans, and in exercise of due diligence,
electric borrowers furnish information
to RUS regarding the condition,
financial or otherwise, related to
expenditure of loan funds. This
information collection is necessary to
comply with applicable provisions of
the RUS loan contract. RUS borrowers
submit requisitions to RUS for funds for
project costs incurred. Insured loan
funds will be advanced only for projects
which are included in the RUS
approved borrowers workplan or
approved amendment and in an
approved loan, as amended. The process
of loan advances establishes the
beginning of the audit trail of the use of
loan funds which is required for
subsequent RUS compliance audits.
There are two official forms included in
this information collection, RUS Forms
595 and 219.
The RUS Form 595 is used as a
requisition for advances of funds. The
form helps to assure that loan funds are
advanced only for the budget purposes
and amount approved by RUS.
According to the applicable provisions
of the RUS loan contract, borrowers
must certify with each request for funds
to be approved for advance, which
funds are for projects previously
approved. When a prospective borrower
requests and is granted a RUS loan, a
loan contract is established between the
Federal government, acting through the
RUS Administrator, and the borrower.
At the time this contract is entered into,
the borrower must provide RUS with a
list of projects for which loan funds will
be spent, along with an itemized list of
the estimated costs of these projects.
Thus, the borrower receives a loan
based upon estimated cost figures.
The RUS Form 219, Inventory of
Work Orders, is one of the documents
the borrower submits to RUS to support
actual expenditures and an advance of
loan funds. The form also serves as a
connecting link and provides an audit
trail that originates with the advance of
funds and terminates with evidence
supporting the propriety of
expenditures for construction or
retirement projects.
Estimate of Burden: Public reporting
burden for this collection of information
is estimated to average 1.56 hours per
Respondents: Not-for-profit
institutions; Business or other for profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents:
Estimated Number of Responses per
Respondent: 15.54.
Estimated Number of Total
Responses: 9,292.
Estimated Total Annual Burden on
Respondents: 14,523 hours.
Copies of this information collection
can be obtained from Pamela Bennett,
Rural Development Innovation Center,
Regulations Management Division, at
(202) 720–9639. All responses to this
notice will be summarized and included
in the request for OMB approval. All
comments will also become a matter of
public record.
