Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 154 / Wednesday, August 12, 2009 / Notices jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES STEM degree completion, and career choices. Research and demonstration projects also investigate effective practices for transitioning students with disabilities across critical academic junctures, retaining students in undergraduate and graduate STEM degree programs, and graduating students with STEM associate, baccalaureate and graduate degrees. Research, demonstration, and enrichment project results inform the delivery of innovative, transformative and successful practices employed by the Alliances for Students with Disabilities in STEM to increase the number of students with disabilities completing associate, undergraduate and graduate degrees in STEM and to increase the number of students with disabilities entering our nation’s science and engineering workforce. RDE projects contribute to closing the gaps occurring for people with disabilities in STEM fields by successfully disseminating findings, project evaluation results, and proven good practices and products to the public. The original information collection, approved by OMB in 1996, surveyed three groups of students: students with disabilities in STEM fields, student with disabilities in other fields, and students without disabilities in STEM fields. These data allowed NSFD to understand more fully the population of students with disabilities in STEM fields and the issues they faced. The collection that will be submitted for reinstatement focuses more specifically on the outcomes of the RDE program, and how alliances and researchers receiving NSF RDE funding have improved the academic environment for students with disabilities. This information collection will consist of an on-line data instrument that RDE awardees will use to submit annual data on their project activities and participants, as well as future evaluation activities. Use of the Information This information is required for effective administration, communication, program and project monitoring and evaluation, and for measuring attainment of NSF’s program, project and strategic goals, as required by the President’s Management agenda as represented by the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) and the NSF’s Strategic Plan. The Foundation’s FY 2006–2011 Strategic Plan describes four strategic outcome goals of Discovery, Learning, Research Infrastructure, and Stewardship. NSF’s complete strategic plan may be found at: http:// VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:38 Aug 11, 2009 Jkt 217001 www.nsf.gov/publications/ pubsumm.jsp?ods_key=nsf0648. Data collected will be used for accountability purposes, including responding from queries from Committees of Visitors and other scientific experts, and for separate research and evaluation studies. Estimate of Burden Respondents: Principal Investigators and/or project staff receiving NSF RDE awards. Number of Respondents: 45. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 1220 hours. Frequency of Responses: Data will be collected from awardees annually, and on an as-needed basis for future evaluation work. Dated: August 7, 2009. Suzanne H.
