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 meet in Portland, Maine on August 11,
1997, from 9:00 a.m. to approximately 4:30 p.m. and on August 12, from
8:30 a.m. to approximately 2:00 p.m.
The proposed agenda includes presentations and discussion sessions
on (a) congressional and other legislative proposals pertaining to
reauthorization of the Higher Education Act; (b) an update of the
Department of Education's reauthorization proposals; and (c) reforming
the management of Title IV delivery. In addition, the Committee will
discuss its' agenda for fiscal year 1998 and other Committee business.
