Office of the Secretary Type of Review: Revision. Title: U.S. Department of Education Supplemental Information for the SF–424 Form. Frequency: New Awards. Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov’t, SEAs or LEAs; Individuals or households; Businesses or other forprofit; Not-for-profit institutions. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 26,000. Burden Hours: 7,860. Abstract: In the previous clearance of the 1890–0017 collection (now 1894– 0007) in 2004, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) cleared the Application for Federal Education Assistance or ED 424 under this collection number. Since that time, ED has discontinued use of the ED 424 Form and has begun using the SF–424, Application for Federal Assistance, together with the U.S. Department of Education Supplemental Information for the SF–424 form. ED made a policy decision to switch to the SF–424 in keeping with Federal-wide forms standardization and streamlining efforts, especially with widespread agency use of Grants.gov. There were several data elements/questions on the ED 424 that were required for ED applicants that were not included on the SF–424. Therefore, ED put these questions that were already cleared as part of the 1890–0017 collection (now 1894–0007) on a form entitled the U.S. Department of Education Supplemental Information for the SF–424. The forms in the SF–424 forms family (e.g., the SF–424 Core Form, SF–424M, etc.) have already been cleared for use by Federal agencies to collect certain identifying information and other data from grant applicants. In this renewal for the collection package for 1894–0007 (formerly 1890–0017), ED is requesting clearance only for the U.S. Department of Education Supplemental Information for the SF–424 form (ED Supplemental VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:19 Apr 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 Information form). The questions on this form deal with the following areas: Project Director identifying and contact information; Novice Applicants; and Human Subjects Research. The ED supplemental information form could be used with any of the SF–424 forms in the SF–424 forms family, as applicable.
