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.

Abstract: The Department of Education receives funding for the Grants to States for Workplace and Community Transition Training for Incarcerated Individuals Program (Title VIII, Part D of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, as amended). The most recent amendment passed via Public Law 110-315 requires State Correctional Education Agencies to submit a proposal in order to be eligible. The law also requires that appropriated funds be allotted to each State in an amount that bears the same relationship to the total number of eligible students in each State. Therefore, States must submit data concerning the number of eligible students under the Program, so that the Department can run the State allocation formula. State Correctional Education Agencies (SCEA) are required to conduct an evaluation and to annually report to the Secretary and the Attorney General on the results of the evaluation.Start Printed Page 55828
