Federal Student Aid

    Type of Review: Extension.
    Title: Experimental Sites Initiative--Data Collection Instrument.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions Federal Government.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
     Responses: 109.
     Burden Hours: 1,650.
    Abstract: This data collection instrument will be used to collect 
specific information/performance data for the analysis of eight 
experiments. This effort will assist ED/Federal Student Aid in 
obtaining and compiling information to help determine change in the 
administration and delivery of Title IV programs. The experiments cover 
major financial aid processes. Institutions are given the flexibility 
to test different procedures to carry out the intent of regulations, 
whereby the Department can analyze the data and obtain information for 
Title IV regulatory and legislative changes. Thus, the Department needs 
this information in its on-going initiative to improve the financial 
aid delivery services to students and the postsecondary institutions 
they attend. Additionally, working with Congress, the Department can 
use this data to make informed decisions for future reauthorization.
