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.

    Abstract: Although this is rarely used, this process allows grant 
programs, in a subsequent year of the approved collection, to change 
their program specific criteria to EDGAR criteria. This process 
generally relates to programs that have used the 1890-0001 process in a 
previous year but wish to move one or more criterion to EDGAR in a 
subsequent year of their approved application. If the program still has 
program specific requirements, they cannot use the 1890-0009 process 
and, therefore, must use this process ONLY if some or all program 
specific criteria will be changing to EDGAR criteria, there are no 
other substantive changes to the approved application, and the 
application still contains a program specific requirement. No public 
comment period notices are required since the Master Plan covers this 
process, and the individual applications account for their burden under 
their individual OMB control numbers. ED submits these requests via the 
OMB83 C (change worksheet) process. A copy of the proposed selection 
criteria to the approved application is also submitted for review. 
Based on the original OMB/ED agreement, the clearance time for this 
process is 10 days at OMB.
