Leo Eiden, Acting Leader, Information Management Case Services Team, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of the Chief Information Officer. Office for Civil Rights Type of Review: New. Title: Assurance of Compliance Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and the Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act. Frequency: One time. Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov’t, SEAs or LEAs; Businesses or other for-profit; Not-for-profit institutions. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 17,000. Burden Hours: 5,667. Abstract: The Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act (Boy Scouts Act), part of No Child Left Behind, and its implementing regulations (which are pending OMB final approval) create new enforcement responsibilities for OCR. To meet these responsibilities, OCR needs to collect assurances of compliance with the Boy Scouts Act, and proposes to do so by amending an existing document that was used to collect assurances of compliance with the other civil rights laws (Title VI, Title IX, Section 504, Age Discrimination Act) enforced by OCR. The respondents are State educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs). If an SEA or LEA receives funds made available through Education and violates the Boy Scouts Act, OCR and the Department of Justice can use the signed assurance of compliance in an enforcement proceeding.
