Office of the Chief Financial Officer, Department of Education.


Notice of proposed rulemaking; reopening of comment period.


This document reopens the comment period for the proposed amendments to part 75 of the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) that would implement new options for the Department of Education's application review process for discretionary grants. On April 17, 2000 we published in the Federal Register (65 FR 20698) a notice of proposed rulemaking proposing amendments to part 75 of EDGAR. The deadline for comments on the proposed regulations was June 1, 2000. We are reopening the original 45-day comment period for the proposed regulations until June 30, 2000, because we have received requests to give stakeholders more time to comment on the proposed changes.


We must receive your comments on or before June 30, 2000.


All comments concerning the proposed regulations should be addressed to: Valerie A. Sinkovits, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., room 3652, ROB-3, Washington, DC 20202-4838. If you prefer to send your comments through the Internet, use the following address: You must include the term “Redesign” in the subject line of your electronic message.
