    Abstract: This information collection is required to support the 
planned FAS guidelines and regulations regarding ``General 
Administrative Policy for Agreements to Conduct International 
Agricultural Research, Extension and Teaching Activities'' under 7 
U.S.C. 3291(a). These guidelines establish the requirements for 
participation in the following FAS programs listed in the Catalog of 
Federal Domestic Assistance: 10.613, Faculty Exchange Program; 10.614, 
Scientific Cooperation Exchange Program with China; 10.960, Technical 
Agricultural Assistance; 10.961, Scientific Cooperation and Research 
Program. This information collection is necessary for FAS to manage, 
plan, and evaluate these programs and to ensure the proper and 
judicious use of government resources. Without the information 
collection, FAS would not be able to conduct any of the activities 
falling under the authorities and instruments listed above (i.e., the 
agency would not be able to develop projects, make or receive payments, 
monitor projects, identify financial and accounting errors, report to 
www.usaspending.gov, etc.).
    FAS will determine the specific means of collection that will be 
used based on the availability of technology and, as applicable, (1) an 
informal agreement of FAS and the respondent, (2) the terms of a signed 
agreement between FAS and the respondent, or (3) the provision of 
written, procedural rules made publicly available by FAS to the 
respondent. The information will be collected via phone calls, emails, 
fax, postal mail, person-to-person meetings, as data entry into grant 
management system(s)), and/or any other commonly used means of 
communication available to both parties. FAS will encourage the 
respondent to use modern information technology to reduce the 
administrative burden whenever possible. Respondents that meet user 
criteria and choose to utilize the FAS's electronic grants management 
system will not be required to provide duplicate information for 
subsequent or current transactions. Any party may initiate a 
conversation at any time to discuss the possibility of entering into 
these agreements. FAS uses the following forms to obtain information
