The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (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 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. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records.
Title of Collection: Cash Management Contract URL Collection.
OMB Control Number: 1845-NEW.
Type of Review: A new information collection.
Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments; Private Sector.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 914.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 73.
Abstract: The Department of Education (the Department) is seeking a new OMB control number for the collection of URLs hosting institutional contracts and contract data relating to campus banking agreements. This is a new requirement of the final Program Integrity and Improvement regulations published on October 30, 2015. When the Department added the requirement for institutions to post campus banking agreement contracts and contract data to their Web sites, consumer advocates requested that a central repository for these Web addresses be made publicly available for research and comparison purposes. This database will allow interested parties, such as students, families, press, institutions, and researchers to easily access and compare banking agreements available at different institutions.
