DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.
SUMMARY: The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management 
Services, Office of Management, 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 August 13, 2007.

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 IC Clearance Official, Regulatory 
Information Management Services, Office of Management, 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.

    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Final Performance Report for the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program.

    Abstract: The purpose of the JKJ Fellowship Program is to award 
fellowships to eligible students of superior ability, selected on the 
basis of demonstrated achievement, financial need, and exceptional 
promise, to undertake graduate study in selected fields in the arts, 
humanities, and social sciences leading to a doctoral degree or to a 
master's degree in those fields in which the master's degree is the 
terminal highest degree awarded in the selected field of study at 
accredited institutions of higher education. Awards are made to 
institutions of higher education, who disburse funds to fellows. This 
Final Performance Report will be used by these institutions to report 
information on the fellowships administered during the four-year 
project period. Program staff have revised the Final Performance Report 
based on an analysis of respondent comments and an evaluation of the 
data provided by the report. Program staff believe that the revised 
report will improve the clarity of the document, reduce burden on 
respondents, and more effectively collect the data necessary to 
evaluate the projects' performance and address updated GPRA 
requirements.
