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. The 
OMB is particularly interested in comments which: (1) Evaluate whether 
the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of 
the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, including through the use of 
appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Type of Review: Reinstatement.
    Title of Collection: Student Support Services Annual Performance 
    OMB Control Number: 1840-0525.
    Agency Form Number(s): N/A.
    Frequency of Responses: Annually.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit; Not-for-profit 
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 947.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 5,682.
    Abstract: The Department of Education is requesting a reinstatement 
without change of the previously approved annual performance report, 
which was discontinued on November 30, 2009 (OMB No.: 1840-0525), to 
collect data under the Student Support Services (SSS) Program. 
Reinstating the report would allow the Department to collect consistent 
performance data for as much as the grant cycle as possible from 
current SSS grantees, which were given a one-time, one-year extension 
due to the negotiated rulemaking process underway to implement the 
Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) revisions to the Higher 
Education Act, the authorizing statute for the program. Beginning next 
year and pending a final rule, all new and continuing grantees will 
submit performance data consistent with the changes made by the HEOA.

OMB review may be accessed from the
