SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Committee on Student Financial
Assistance is established under Section 491 of the Higher Education Act
of 1965 as amended by Pub. L. 100-50 (20 U.S.C. 1098). The Advisory
Committee is established to provide advice and counsel to the Congress
and the Secretary of Education on student financial aid matters
including providing technical expertise with regard to systems of need
analysis and application forms, making recommendations that will result
in the maintenance of access to postsecondary education for low- and
middle-income students, conducting a study of institutional lending in
the Stafford Student Loan Program and an in-depth study of student loan
simplification. The Advisory Committee fulfills its charge by
conducting objective, nonpartisan, and independent analyses of
important student aid issues. As a result of passage of the Omnibus
Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1993, Congress assigned the
Advisory Committee the major task of evaluating the Ford Federal Direct
Loan Program (FDLP) and the Federal Family Education Loan Program
(FFELP). The Committee was directed to report to the Secretary and
Congress on not less than an annual basis on the operation of both
programs and submit a final report by January 1, 1997. The Committee
submitted to Congress its final recommendations on the advisability of
fully implementing the FDLP on December 11, 1996. The Advisory
Committee has now focused its energies on activities related to
reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1998.
The Advisory Committee will hold a teleconference meeting in
Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, September 30, 1997, from 11:00 a.m. to
approximately 12:30 p.m.
The proposed agenda includes (a) an update on activities related to
reauthorization of the Higher Education Act; and (b) other Committee
business. Space is limited and you are encouraged to contact the
Advisory Committee staff at 202-708-7439 no later than 3:00 p.m. on
Monday, September 29, if you wish to participate.
Records are kept of all Committee proceedings, and are available
for public inspection at the Office of the Advisory Committee on
Student Financial Assistance, 1280 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Suite 601,
Washington, D.C. from the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., weekdays,
except Federal holidays.

Dated: September 24, 1997.
Brian K. Fitzgerald,
Staff Director, Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance.
