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 Leader, Information Management Group, 
Office of the Chief Financial and Chief Information Officer, 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 at the address 
specified above. Copies of the requests are available from Patrick J. 
Sherrill at the address specified above.

    Type of Review: New.
    Title: School-level Expenditure Survey Field Test.
    Frequency: One time.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit; Not-for-profit 
institutions; State, local or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
      Responses: 525.
      Burden Hours: 658.
    Abstract: This field test would test the procedures and an 
instrument for collecting public school-level expenditure data from 
public school district financial officers and private school finance 
data from private school business officers. Currently, national school 
level finance data are not available from any source. The public school 
component will satisfy the mandate from Congress for the development of 
school-level expenditure data collection. School-level expenditure data 
would allow for the comparison of per pupil expenditures, instructional 
and instructional support expenditures, and some program expenditures 
across school types, sizes, regions, and grade levels. Comparisons of 
the resource allocation and private schools could also be made.
