Abstract: This Loan Verification Certificate (LVC) will serve as the means by which the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) collects certain information from commercial holders of Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program loans that a borrower wishes to consolidate into the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program under a special initiative announced by the White House in an October 25, 2011 fact sheet titled ‘‘Help Americans Manage Student Loan Debt.’’ Loans made under this initiative are known as Special Direct Consolidation Loans. The information collected on the LVC includes the amount needed to pay off the loans that the borrower wants to consolidate and other information required by the Department to make and service a Special Direct Consolidation Loan. The purpose of the special consolidation initiative is to encourage borrowers who have both commerciallyheld FFEL Program loans and other loans that are held by the Department (either Direct Loan Program loans or FFEL Program loans previously sold to the Department by a FFEL Program lender) to consolidate their commercially-held FFEL Program loans into the Direct Loan Program. Currently, these borrowers have at least two loan servicers and are required to make at least two separate monthly payments on E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1

Summary of Information Collection

    Under the U.S.-International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Additional 
Protocol, the United States is required to declare a wide range of 
public and private nuclear-related activities to the IAEA and 
potentially provide access to IAEA inspectors for verification 
purposes. The U.S.-IAEA Additional Protocol permits the United States 
unilaterally to declare exclusions from inspection requirements for 
activities with direct national security significance.
    The clause at 252.204-7010 is included in contracts for research 
and development or major defense acquisition programs involving 
fissionable materials (e.g., uranium, plutonium, neptunium, thorium, 
americium); other radiological source materials; or technologies 
directly related to nuclear power production, including nuclear or 
radiological waste materials.
    The clause requires a contractor to provide written notification to 
the applicable DoD program manager and a copy of the notification to 
the contracting officer, if the contractor is required to report its 
activities under the U.S.-IAEA Additional Protocol. Upon such 
notification, DoD will determine if access may be granted to IAEA 
inspectors, or if a national security exclusion should be applied.
