The Acting Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, invites comments on the proposed information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before October 9, 2007.End Preamble Start Supplemental 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 Acting Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, 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.Start Signature

Abstract: Although this is rarely used, this process allows grant programs, in a subsequent year of the approved collection, to change their program specific criteria to EDGAR criteria. This process generally relates to programs who have used the 1890-0001 process in a previous year but wish to move one or more criterion to EDGAR in a subsequent year of their approved application. If the program still has program specific requirements, they cannot use the 1890-0009 process and therefore, must use this process ONLY if some or all program specific criteria will be changing to EDGAR criteria, there are no other substantive changes to the approved application, and the application still contains a program specific requirement. No public comment period notices are required since the Master Plan covers this process, and the individual applications account for their burden under their individual OMB control numbers.
