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 IC Clearance Official, Regulatory 
Information Management Services, Office of Management, 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.

profit; not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or Tribal Gov't,

    Abstract: The Education Department General Administrative 
Regulations (EDGAR) Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements are 
currently part of another collection, OMB Control Number 1890-0004. The 
1890-0004 collection currently includes three distinct information 
collection instruments, the ED 524 Budget Form, the ED 524B Grant 
Performance Report and the recordkeeping and reporting requirements 
that carry burden in EDGAR. As part of the renewal of these 
instruments, we are requesting that each of the instruments be approved 
under separate OMB Control numbers. Separating these instruments into 
three information collections will make it easier to make additions, 
deletions, revisions, or other needed changes to each instrument 
throughout the approval period and eliminate any potential confusion 
when changes are made to only one of the instruments. We are requesting 
a new OMB Control number for the EDGAR Recordkeeping and Reporting 
Requirements and a three-year approval for this collection. Please note 
that the ED 524B, Grant Performance Report will retain the 1890-0004 
    Requests for copies of the information collection submission for 
OMB review may be accessed from, by selecting 
the ``Browse Pending Collections'' link and by clicking on link number 
3381. When you access the information collection, click on ``Download 
Attachments'' to view.'' Written requests for information should be 
addressed to U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., 
Potomac Center, 9th Floor, Washington, DC 20202-4700. Requests may also 
be electronically mailed to or faxed to 202-245-
6623. Please specify the complete title of the information collection 
when making your request.
    Comments regarding burden and/or the collection activity 
requirements should be electronically mailed to 
Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may 
call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339.
