Reporting: (a) If you apply for a grant under this competition, you must ensure that you have in place the necessary processes and systems to comply with the reporting requirements in 2 CFR part 170 should you receive funding under the competition. This does not apply if you have an exception under 2 CFR 170.110(b). (b) At the end of your project period, you must submit a final performance report, including financial information, as directed by the Secretary. If you receive a multi-year award, you must submit an APR that provides the most current performance and financial expenditure information as directed by the Secretary under 34 CFR 75.118. The Secretary may also require more frequent performance reports under 34 CFR 75.720(c). For specific requirements on reporting, please go to www.ed.gov/fund/grant/apply/ appforms/appforms.html. 4. Performance Measures: The goal of the IDEA Fiscal Data Center is to provide TA that will improve the capacity of States to meet IDEA data collection and reporting requirements. Under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), the Department has established a set of performance measures, including longterm measures, that are designed to yield information on the effectiveness and quality of the Technical Assistance and Dissemination to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities program. We will use the measures established for the Technical Assistance and Dissemination to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities program to assess the performance of the Technical Assistance on State Data Collection program. See www2.ed.gov/fund/grant/ apply/osep/funding.html. The Department will use these measures to assess the extent to which this program provides high-quality products and services, the relevance of project products and services to educational and early intervention policy and practice, and the usefulness of products and services to improve State data capacity to collect and report IDEA data. Grantees will be required to report information on their project’s performance in annual reports to the Department (34 CFR 75.590). 5. Continuation Awards: In making a continuation award, the Secretary may consider, under 34 CFR 75.253, the extent to which a grantee has made ‘‘substantial progress toward meeting the objectives in its approved VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:35 Aug 08, 2014 Jkt 232001 application.’’ This consideration includes the review of a grantee’s progress in meeting the targets and projected outcomes in its approved application, and whether the grantee has expended funds in a manner that is consistent with its approved application and budget. In making a continuation grant, the Secretary also considers whether the grantee is operating in compliance with the assurances in its approved application, including those applicable to Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance from the Department (34 CFR 100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23).

Proposed Reliability Standard VAR– 002–3 sets forth the requirements applicable to Generator Operators and Generator Owners for providing the necessary reactive support and voltage control necessary to maintain reliable operations. Generators are the largest and most reliable Reactive Power resource and play an integral role in maintaining voltage stability on the BulkPower System. Collectively, the proposed Reliability Standards are designed to prevent voltage instability and voltage collapse on the Bulk-Power System.2 Finally, NERC also states that the proposed Reliability Standards improve reliability, clarify requirement language and eliminate redundant or unnecessary requirements.3 Burden Statement: Commission staff analyzed the proposed and currently enforced standards and has concluded that while information collection requirements have been deleted, added, 1 NERC Petition at 3. at 4. 3 Id. at 15. 2 Id.

VAR-001-4 (Voltage and Reactive Control) and VAR-002-3 (Generator 
Operation for Maintaining Network Voltage Schedules), developed by the 
North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and submitted 
to the Commission for approval. The Commission received NERC's petition 
to approve the proposed Reliability Standards on June 9, 2014.

    In its petition, NERC also summarizes the proposed Reliability 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Standards' applicability and requirements:

    In general, proposed Reliability Standard VAR-001-4 sets forth 
the requirements applicable to Transmission Operators for 
scheduling, monitoring, and controlling Reactive Power resources in 
the Real-time Operations, Same-day Operations, and Operational 
Planning time horizons to regulate voltage and Reactive Power flows 
for the reliable operation of the Bulk-Power System. Proposed 
Reliability Standard VAR-002-3 sets forth the requirements 
applicable to Generator Operators and Generator Owners for providing 
the necessary reactive support and voltage control necessary to 
maintain reliable operations. Generators are the largest and most 
reliable Reactive Power resource and play an integral role in

Collectively, the proposed Reliability Standards are designed to 
prevent voltage instability and voltage collapse on the Bulk-Power 
System.\2\

improve reliability, clarify requirement language and eliminate 
redundant or unnecessary requirements.\3\

    Burden Statement: Commission staff analyzed the proposed and 
currently enforced standards and has concluded that while information 
collection requirements have been deleted, added, and/or changed, the 
overall paperwork burden and applicable respondent universe remains 
unchanged. However, the Commission intends to submit a request for 
approval to OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) related to the 
proposed Reliability Standards because there are substantive changes to 
information collection requirements. For PRA purposes, the information 
collection requirements in proposed Reliability Standards VAR-001-4 and 
VAR-002-3 are identified as FERC-725A and OMB Control Number 1902-0244.
