Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests
AGENCY: Department of Education.
SUMMARY: The Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, 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 January 17, 2006.
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 Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, 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.
