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, Regulatory 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.
