We also have concluded that it would be contrary to the public interest to have a lapse in Comprehensive Centers projects pending these reauthorizations. For these reasons, the Secretary proposes to waive the requirements in 34 CFR 75.250, which prohibit project periods exceeding five years, and the requirements in 34 CFR 75.261(c)(2), which limit the extension of a project period if the extension involves the obligation of additional Federal funds. With these waivers: (1) Current Comprehensive Centers grantees would receive FY 2010 funds and continue to operate through FY 2011 and possibly beyond, if Congress continues to appropriate funds for that purpose, and (2) we would not announce a new competition or make new awards under the Comprehensive Centers program in FY 2010. The proposed waivers of 34 CFR 75.250 and 75.261(c)(2) would not affect the applicability of the requirements in 34 CFR 75.253 (continuation of a multiyear project after the first budget period) to any current Comprehensive Centers grantee that receives a continuation award as a result of the waivers. In addition, these proposed waivers would not exempt current Comprehensive Centers grantees from the account-closing provisions in 31 U.S.C. 1552(a), nor would they extend the availability of funds previously awarded to current Comprehensive Centers grantees. Under 31 U.S.C. 1552(a), appropriated funds may be used for payment of valid obligations for only five years after the expiration of their period of availability for Federal obligation. After that time, the unexpended balance of those funds is canceled and returned to the U.S. Treasury Department and is unavailable for restoration for any purpose. The waivers proposed in this notice would not change this requirement. Making these waivers, therefore, would ensure that the important services provided by the current Comprehensive Centers grantees can be continued, as the Department works on reauthorization of the ETAA and ESEA and designs a Comprehensive Centers program that is clearly aligned with the Department’s technical assistance priorities. During this interim period the activities of the current Comprehensive VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:08 Mar 17, 2010 Jkt 220001 13111 Centers grantees would be modified to support the Department’s technical assistance priorities. We will announce the final waivers, if any, in a notice in the Federal Register. We will determine the final waivers after considering responses to this notice and other information available to the Department. strengthened federalism. The Executive Order relies on processes developed by State and local governments for coordination and review of proposed Federal financial assistance. This document provides early notification of our specific plans and actions for this program. Proposed Waivers—Comprehensive Centers Program The Secretary proposes to waive the requirements in 34 CFR 75.250 and 75.261(c)(2), which prohibit project periods exceeding five years and extensions of project periods that involve the obligation of additional Federal funds, for the current Comprehensive Centers grantees.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification The Secretary certifies that these proposed waivers would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The small entities that would be affected by these proposed waivers are: (a) The FY 2005 grantees currently receiving Federal funds; and (b) The entities that are eligible for an award under the Comprehensive Centers program (i.e., research organizations, institutions, agencies, institutions of higher education, partnerships among such entities, or individuals, with the demonstrated ability or capacity to carry out the activities described in the notice inviting applications published in the Federal Register on June 3, 2005 (70 FR 53283) and corrected on June 20, 2005 (70 FR 35415)). The Secretary certifies that the proposed waivers would not have a significant economic impact on these entities because the proposed waivers and the activities required to support the additional years of funding would not impose excessive regulatory burdens or require unnecessary Federal supervision. The proposed waivers would impose minimal requirements to ensure the proper expenditure of program funds, including requirements that are standard for continuation awards. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This notice of proposed waivers does not contain any information collection requirements.
