Title of Collection: Statewide Family Engagement Centers—Annual Performance Reporting Form.
OMB Control Number: 1810-NEW.
Type of Review: A new information collection.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 12.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 114.
Abstract: This is a request for a new information collection in order to collect the Annual Performance Report (APR) for the Statewide Family Engagement Centers (SFEC) program. The collection of this information is part of the government-wide effort to improve the performance and accountability of all federal programs, under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) passed in 1993, the Uniform Guidance, and the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). Under GPRA, a process for using performance indicators to set program performance goals and to measure and report program results was established. To implement GPRA, ED developed GPRA measures at every program level to quantify and report program progress required by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended. Under the Uniform Guidance and EDGAR, recipients of federal awards are required to submit performance and financial expenditure information. The GPRA program level measures and budget information for the Statewide Family Engagement Centers (SFEC) Program are reported in the Annual Performance Report (APR). The APR is required under 2 CFR 200.328 and 34 CFR 75.118 and 75.590. The Start Printed Page 36195annual report provides data on the status of the funded project that corresponds to the scope and objectives established in the approved application and any amendments. To ensure that accurate and reliable data are reported to Congress on program implementation and performance outcomes, the SFEC APR collects the raw data from grantees in a consistent format to calculate these data in the aggregate.
