SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction FDMS serves as a central, electronic repository for Federal rulemaking dockets and includes Federal Register notices, supporting materials such as scientific or economic analyses, and public comments, as well as nonrulemaking dockets.

Through the Department’s portion of FDMS, members of the public may comment on the Department’s rulemaking documents contained in the system. In order to submit a comment PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66155 through the Department’s portion of FDMS, members of the public only need to complete two fields—the ‘‘Category’’ field and the ‘‘General Comments’’ field. To complete the ‘‘Category’’ field, commenters are prompted to select the most appropriate category from the following list: Parent/relative, teacher, student, individual, public elementary/ secondary school, private elementary/ secondary school, school administrator, institution of higher education, lender, guarantor, local educational agency, State educational agency, State agency, association/organization, Federal agency, child advocate, lobbyist, law firm, tribal organization, and other. The ‘‘General Comments’’ field in FDMS is a free text field in which individuals provide their actual comments. In addition to these two required fields, commenters may, but are not required to, provide the following information: First name, last name, city, country, State or province, e-mail address, organization name, submitter’s representative, government agency type, and government agency. Generally, the Department makes all of the information provided by commenters, including commenters’ names and other individually identifying information provided within the comments, publicly viewable on the Federal government’s interagency FDMS Web portal at http:// www.regulations.gov. FDMS has full text search capability, enabling any member of the public to search all public submissions on any Department rulemaking in FDMS by any term, including any name and contact information submitted in or as part of a comment. On the http://www.regulations.gov Web site and in the Department’s notices of proposed rulemaking, the Department clearly notifies the public that, with few exceptions, comments received from members of the public (including those comments submitted by mail, commercial delivery, or hand delivery) are made publicly available on the Federal eRulemaking Portal (http:// www.regulations.gov) without change. The Department makes efforts to ensure that comments containing material the disclosure of which is restricted by Federal law, such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), are not made publicly available. While not publicly posted, the Department will retain, evaluate, and consider these comments. EDFDMS is comprised of both these comments that are not publicly available, as well as the comments on the Department’s rulemakings that are available to the E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1
