DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

[[Page 60643]]

SUMMARY: The Acting Leader, Regulatory 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 
November 25, 2002.

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 Acting 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.

    Dated: September 20, 2002.

Information Officer.

Federal Student Aid

    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA) (JS) *.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions (primary).
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
     Responses: 1800.
     Burden Hours: 10800.
    Abstract: The EADA amended the Higher Education Act of 1965, as 
amended (HEA), to require coeducational institutions of higher 
education that participate in any program under Title IV of the HEA and 
have an intercollegiate athletic program, annually to make available 
upon request a report on institutional financing and student and staff 
participation in men's and women's intercollegiate athletics. The 
Higher Education Amendments of 1998 amended the EADA to require 
additional disclosures, to require that an institution submit its 
report to the Department of Education, and to require the Department to 
report to Congress on gender equity in intercollegiate athletics and to 
make its report and institutions' EADA reports publicly available.
