SUMMARY: The Leader, Information Management Case Services Team,

collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

DATES: An emergency review has been requested in accordance with the 
Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 3507 (j)), since public harm is reasonably 
likely to result if normal clearance procedures are followed. Approval

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Director of OMB 
provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity 
to comment on information collection requests. The Office of Management 
and Budget (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 this 
notice containing proposed information collection requests at the 
beginning of the Departmental review of the information collection. 
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)

    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title: Section 704 Annual Performance Report (Parts I and II).
    Abstract: Section 706(d), 721(b)(3), and 725(c) of the 
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Act) and corresponding program 
regulations in 34 CFR parts 364, 365, and 366 require centers for 
independent living, Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs) and 
Designated State Units (DSUs) supported under Parts B and C of Chapter 
1 of Title VII of the Act to submit to the Secretary of Education 
(Secretary) annual performance information and identify training and 
technical assistance needs.
    Additional Information: If this collection does not receive special 
OMB consideration our public would be harmed by a delay in implementing 
the revised instrument. This would impair Education's ability to 
discharge its oversight and technical responsibilities by limiting 
respondents' ability to make the required changes in their information 
technology and data collection systems.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: State, local, or tribal gov't, SEAs or LEAs; Not-
for-profit institutions.
