This effort is called the Experimental Sites Initiative (ESI). This notice is the first of two notices that the Secretary will publish regarding the ESI. Under section 487A(b) of the HEA, the Secretary has the authority to grant waivers from specific Title IV, HEA statutory or regulatory requirements to allow institutions to test alternative methods for administering the Title IV, HEA programs. Such institutions are referred to in the HEA as ‘‘experimental sites’’. The Secretary seeks suggestions on how best to use this authority to reduce burden in the administration of the Title IV, HEA programs. Consistent with section 487A(b) of the HEA, the Secretary cannot waive requirements related to need analysis, award rules, and grant and loan maximum award amounts. However, the Secretary anticipates approving experiments in a wide variety of other areas. The Secretary is particularly interested in suggestions for experiments that might produce PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 stronger academic outcomes for students, such as improved persistence, shorter time to degree, and reduced reliance on outside work. After reviewing the suggestions submitted by institutions as a result of this notice and constructing an evaluation design for approved experiments, the Secretary will publish a second notice in the Federal Register announcing approved experiments as well as the implementation and evaluative criteria for each approved experiment. The subsequent notice will invite institutions to apply to participate in one or more of those experiments, with preference given to the institution(s) that submitted the original suggestion. DATES: Suggestions must be submitted no later than December 18, 2009 in order to ensure consideration for inclusion in the first phase of ESI. ADDRESSES: Submissions must be submitted as an attachment to an e-mail sent to the following e-mail address: experimentalsites@ed.gov. Instructions for Submitting Suggestions: We recommend that suggestions be prepared in either a Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat document that is attached to an electronic mail message sent to the email address provided in the ADDRESSES section of this notice. We ask that submitters include the name and address of the institution that is submitting the suggestion and the name, title, mailing and e-mail addresses, and telephone number of a contact person for the institution or consortium. If the submission is from a consortium of institutions, we ask that the submitter list all institutions but only one contact person.
