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 Case 
Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of 
the 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

    Type of Review: Extension.
    Title: Streamlined Process for Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Approved Grant Applications.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: State, local, or tribal gov't, SEAs or LEAs; 
Businesses or other for-profit; not-for-profit institutions.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses--1.
    Burden Hours--1.
    Abstract: In April 1997, EDGAR's menu of selection criteria became 
effective. For each competition, the Secretary would select one or more 
criteria that best enable the Department to identify the highest 
quality applications consistent with the program purpose, statutory 
requirements, and any priorities established. This allows the Secretary 
the flexibility to weigh the criteria according to the needs of each 
individual program. This menu of selection criteria will provide the 
Department the flexibility to choose a set of criteria tailored to a 
given competition and obviate the need to create specific selection 
criteria through individual program regulations. ED is requesting a 
streamlined clearance process for programs of approved applications 
that choose to change: (1) Criteria from the same EDGAR menu or (2) 
program criteria to EDGAR criteria.
