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 Leader,
Information Management Group, 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
respondents, including through the use of information technology.
