SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Director of OMB
provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity
to comment on information collection requests. The Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) may amend or waive the requirement for public
consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval
process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate
State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency's
ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Acting Deputy Chief
Information Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes
this notice containing proposed information collection requests at the
beginning of the Departmental review of the information collection.
Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the
following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g., new, revision,
extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the
collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the
information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6)
Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. ED invites public comment at the
address specified above. Copies of the requests are available from
Patrick J. Sherrill at the address specified above.
The Department of Education is especially interested in public
comment addressing the following issues: (1) is this collection
necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this
information be processed and used
in a timely manner, (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how
might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected, and (5) how might the Department minimize
the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the
use of information technology.
