SUMMARY: The Department of Education (the Department), in accordance

3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with 
an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing collections of 
information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its 
information collection requirements and minimize the reporting burden

information collection requirements and provide the requested data in 
the desired format. The Acting Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Division, Privacy, Information and Records Management 
Services, Office of Management, invites comments on the proposed 
information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995.

Washington, DC 20202-4537. Please note that written comments received 
in response to this notice will be considered public records.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that Federal agencies provide 
interested parties an early opportunity to comment on information 
collection requests. The Director, Information Collection Clearance 
Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of 
Management, publishes this notice containing proposed information 
collection requests at the beginning of the Departmental review of the 
information collection. The Department of Education is especially

    Title of Collection: Fiscal Operations Report for 2011-2012 and 
Application to Participate for 2013-2014 Fiscal Operations Report and 
Application to Participate and Reallocation Form E40-4P.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0030.
    Agency Form Number(s): E40-4P.
    Frequency of Responses: Annually.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit; Federal Government;

    Abstract: The data submitted electronically in the Fiscal 
Operations Report and Application to Participate (FISAP) through FISAP 
on the web is used by the Department of Education (the Department) to 
determine the institution's funding need for the award year and monitor 
program effectiveness and accountability of fund expenditures. The 
Reallocation form is part of FISAP on the web. The Higher Education Act 
of 1965, as amended requires that if an institution anticipates not 
using all of its allocated funds for the Perkins, Federal Work-Study, 
and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant programs by the 
end of an award year, it must specify the anticipated remaining unused 
amount to the Secretary. This data collection is due to expire June 30, 
2012. In addition to renewing the expiration date references to dates 
and award year dates have been updated on the forms and in the 
instructions for both documents. Two fields were removed from the FISAP 
due to the termination of the Academic Competitiveness Grant and 
National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant 
programs. Additional clarifications were made to the FISAP 
instructions.
