AGENCY: Department of Education.
SUMMARY: The Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, 
Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of the Chief 
Information Officer, invites comments on the proposed information 
collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

February 8, 2005.

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 
(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

[[Page 71807]]

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.
