DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests
AGENCY: Department of Education.
SUMMARY: The Leader, Information Management Group, Office of the Chief
Information Officer, invites comments on the proposed information
collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before
May 22, 2000.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. 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 Leader, Information Management Group,
Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes that notice
containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission
of these requests to OMB. 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. OMB invites public comment.
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?
Dated: March 16, 2000.

Type of Review: Revision.
Title: Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) Enrollment Document.
Frequency: On occasion.
Affected Public: Individuals or households; not-for-profit
institutions; Federal, State, Local, or Tribal Government SEAs or LEAs.
Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 4,660 Burden
Abstract: The Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) Enrollment Form
will be used by postsecondary institutions, third-party, software
providers, lenders, guaranty agencies, and state scholarship programs.
This will allow participants to have electronic access, to recieve and
transmit, view and update student financial aid data. The Department
will use this information on the enrollment form to assign customers a
Title IV WAN ID and associate Title IV services selected by the
customer. Since the original clearance of this system last summer,
Education has discovered a number of suggestions for improvements. We
hope to receive your ideas in 50 days so that we can have the necessary
time to properly evaluate them.
