helps the public understand the Department's information collection

(ICR) that is described below. 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

    Title of Collection: Fiscal Operations Report for 2012-2013 and 
Application to Participate for 2014-2015 (FISAP) and Reallocation Form.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0030.
    Type of Review: Revision of an existing collection of information.
    Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,549.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 37,176.
    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 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 Amendments (HEA) requires that if an institution anticipates 
not using all of its allocated funds for the Perkins, Federal Work 
Study (FWS), and Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant 
(FSEOG) programs by the end of an award year, it must specify the 
anticipated remaining unused amount to the Secretary. In addition to 
renewing the expiration date, references to dates and award years dates 
have been updated on the forms and in the instructions for both 
documents. The FISAP form has been revised: (1) To use technology to 
gather existing data electronically from other sources requiring less 
data entry concerning Additional Institutions in Part I; (2) to allow 
applicable aggregate level data entry concerning graduate and 
professional students for schools with non-traditional academic 
calendars; and (3) to expand the income grid in the Part VI summary to 
collect a more concise breakdown of student data at the aggregate
