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, 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.

    Type of Review: New.
    Title: Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)
Minimum Data Set (MDS).
    Frequency: One time.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit; Not-for-profit
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 13,000. Burden
Hours: 1,827.
    Abstract: IPEDS is a system of surveys designed to collect basic
data from postsecondary institutions in the US. To date, the main focus
of IPEDS has been Title IV institutions, but institutions that do not
participate in these federal student financial aid programs are
becoming an increasingly important source of educational opportunity in
the country. But their scope and nature are not well known. This survey
is designed to arrive at a statistical estimate of the number of non-
Title IV institutions.
