Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, 
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 
September 14, 2010.

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 Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Division, 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: Reinstatement.
    Title: Student Support Services Annual Performance Report.
    OMB #: 1840-0525.
    Form #: N/A.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or 
Tribal Government, State Educational Agencies (SEAs) or Local 
Educational Agencies (LEAs).

    Abstract: The Department of Education is requesting a reinstatement 
without change of the previously approved annual performance report, 
which was discontinued on November 30, 2009 (OMB No.: 1840-0525), to 
collect data under the Student Support Services (SSS) Program. 
Reinstating the report would allow the Department to collect consistent 
performance data for as much of the grant cycle as possible from 
current SSS grantees, which were given a one-time, one-year extension 
due to the negotiated rulemaking process underway to implement the 
Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) revisions to the Higher 
Education Act (HEA), the authorizing statute for the program. Beginning 
next year and pending a final rule, all new and continuing grantees 
will submit performance data consistent with the changes made by the 
    Requests for copies of the proposed information collection request 
may be accessed from, by selecting the ``Browse 
Pending Collections'' link and by clicking on link number 4344. When 
you access the information collection, click on ``Download 
Attachments'' to view. Written requests for information should be 
addressed to U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., 
LBJ, Washington, DC 20202-4537. Requests may also be electronically 
mailed to or faxed to 202-401-0920. Please specify 
the complete title of the information collection when making your 
    Comments regarding burden and/or the collection activity 
requirements should be electronically mailed to 
Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may 
call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339.
