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. AGENCY: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before September 17, 2007. DATES: 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.

Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 7,835. Burden Hours: 33,395. Abstract: The Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements are currently part of another collection, OMB Control Number 1890–0004. The 1890–0004 collection currently includes three distinct information collection instruments, the ED 524 Budget Form, the ED 524B Grant Performance Report and the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that carry burden in EDGAR. As part of the renewal of these instruments, we are requesting that each of the instruments be approved under separate OMB Control numbers. Separating these instruments into three information collections will make it easier to make additions, deletions, revisions or other needed changes to each instrument throughout the approval period and eliminate any potential confusion when changes are made to only one of the instruments. We are requesting a new OMB Control number for the EDGAR Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements and a three-year approval for this collection. Please note that the ED 524B, Grant Performance Report will retain the 1890–0004 number.

Budget Form and Instructions.

    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
    Responses: 17,000.

    Abstract: The ED-524 Budget Information Non-Construction Programs 
Form and Instructions were previously part of another collection, OMB 
control number 1890-0004. The 1890-0004 collection currently includes 
three distinct information collection instruments, the ED 524 Budget 
Form, the ED 524B Grant Performance Report and the administrative 
requirements in the Education Department General Administrative 
Regulations (EDGAR). As part of the renewal of these instruments, we 
are requesting that each of the instruments be approved under separate 
OMB control numbers. Separating these instruments into three 
information collections will make it easier to make additional 
deletions, revisions or other needed changes to each instrument 
throughout the approval period and eliminate any potential confusion 
when changes are made to only one of the instruments. We are requesting 
a new OMB control number for the ED 524, Budget Form and a three-year 
approval. Please note that the ED 524B, Grant Performance Report will 
retain the 1890-0004 number. The ED 524 form and instructions are 
included in U.S. Department of Education (ED) discretionary grant 
application packages and are needed in order for applicants to submit 
summary-level budget data by budget category, as well as a detailed 
budget narrative, to request and justify their proposed grant budgets 
which are part of their grant applications.
