Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education
SUMMARY: The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management 
Services, Office of Management, invites comments on the proposed 
information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before 
November 3, 2008.

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.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 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.

    Abstract: For the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), a 
customized annual performance report (APR) that goes beyond the generic 
524B is requested to facilitate the collection of more standardized and 
comprehensive data to inform Government Performance and Results Act 
(GPRA), to improve the overall quality of data collection, and to 
increase the quality and quantity of data that can be used to inform 
policy decisions. Please note that in 2007, our office, Office of 
Migrant Education (OME), received OMB approval for a similar APR for 
the High School Equivalency (HEP), which is another program authorized 
under the same Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) 
legislation and managed by OME.
