FORD FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN (DIRECT LOAN) PROGRAM AND TEACHER EDUCATION ASSISTANCE FOR COLLEGE AND HIGHER EDUCATION (TEACH) GRANT PROGRAM SUBMISSION DATES FOR DISBURSEMENT INFORMATION BY INSTITUTIONS FOR THE 2012–2013 COD PROCESSING YEAR 1—Continued Who submits? What is submitted? What are the earliest submission and deadline dates for receipt? Where is it submitted? For disbursements that occur prior to April 1, 2013 an institution is required to submit disbursement information no later than 30 calendar days after the institution makes a disbursement or becomes aware of the need to make an adjustment to previously reported disbursement data; or For disbursements that occur on or after April 1, 2013 an institution is required to submit disbursement information no later than 15 calendar days after the institution makes a disbursement or becomes aware of the need to make an adjustment to previously reported disbursement data. Note: Disbursements made between January 1, 2012 and March 10, 2012 must be reported not later than 30 calendar days after March 10, 2012. 1 A COD Processing Year is a period of time in which institutions are permitted to submit Direct Loan and TEACH Grant records to the COD System that are related to a given award year. For a Direct Loan, the period of time includes loans that have a loan period covering any day in the 2012–2013 award year. For a TEACH Grant, the period of time includes an award for a payment period that includes any day in the 2012– 2013 award year. 2 Transmissions must be completed and accepted before 12:00 (Eastern Time) midnight to meet the deadline. If transmissions are started before 12:00 midnight but are not completed until after 12:00 midnight, those transmissions will not meet the deadline. In addition, any transmission submitted on or just prior to the deadline date that is rejected may not be reprocessed because the deadline will have passed by the time the user gets the information notifying him or her of the rejection. Note: The COD System must accept origination data for a student from an institution before it accepts disbursement information from the institution for that student. Institutions may submit origination and disbursement data for a student in the same transmission. However, if the origination data is rejected, the disbursement data is rejected.

SUMMARY: EIA has submitted, under the provisions of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995, an information collection request to the OMB for 
a three-year extension, with changes, of its Oil and Gas Reserves 
System Surveys (OGRS) forms (OMB 1905-0057):

Reserves, Field Level Report
     Form EIA-23S, Annual Survey of Domestic Oil and Gas 
Reserves, Summary Level Report
     Form EIA-64A, Annual Report of the Origin of Natural Gas 
Liquids Production

EIA proposes to suspend the Form EIA-23S and collect similar data in a 
revised sample for the Form EIA-23L data collection. The sampling 
method for the Form EIA-23L survey frame will be changed to a cut-off 
sample, and procedures to estimate data will be adjusted, accordingly. 
EIA proposes to report reserves for three, small natural gas and oil 
production states (IL, IN, and TN) ``as reported'' (i.e., will no 
longer estimate the total reserves for these states) under the 
Miscellaneous States category in EIA publications. The Form EIA-23L 
instructions will be updated with the current EIA definitions of terms 
used. Form EIA-64A will be extended without changes.
