VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:25 Nov 07, 2014 Jkt 235001 Type of Review: An extension of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Private Sector, State, Local and Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 69. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 69. Abstract: The regulations in 34 CFR 682.302(f) assures the Secretary that the integrity of the program is protected from fraud and misuse of the program funds. These regulations require a State, non-profit entity, or eligible lender trustee to provide to the Secretary a certification on the State or non-profit entity’s letterhead signed by the State or non-profit’s Chief Executive Officer which states the basis upon which the entity qualifies as a State or non-profit entity. The submission must include documentation establishing the entity’s State or non-profit status. In addition, the submission must include the name and lender identification number for which the eligible not-for profit designation is being certified. Once an entity has been approved as an eligible not-for-profit holder, the entity must provide to the Secretary an annual certification on the State or no-profit entity’s letterhead signed by the CEO, which includes the name and lender identification number(s) of the entities for which designation is being recertified. The annual certification must state that the State or non-profit entity has not altered its status as a State or non-profit entity since its prior certification to the Secretary and that it continues to satisfy the requirements of an eligible not-for-profit holder either in its own right or through a trust agreement with an eligible lender trustee. Further, when an approved notfor-profit holder has a change in status, within 10 days of becoming aware of the occurrence of a change that may result in a State or non-profit entity that has been designated an eligible not-forprofit holder, either directly or through an eligible lender trustee, losing that eligibility, the State or non-profit entity must submit details of the change to the Secretary.
