Title of Collection: Grants to Charter Management Organizations for Replication and Expansion of HighQuality Charter Schools Program. OMB Control Number: 1855—New. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:02 Nov 30, 2016 Jkt 241001 Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Private Sector. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 50. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 2,000. Abstract: The major purposes of the CSP are to expand opportunities for all students, particularly traditionally underserved students, to attend charter schools and meet challenging State academic standards; provide financial assistance for the planning, program design, and initial implementation of public charter schools; increase the number of high-quality charter schools available to students across the United States; evaluate the impact of charter schools on student achievement, families, and communities; share best practices between charter schools and other public schools; encourage States to provide facilities support to charter schools; and support efforts to strengthen the charter school authorizing process. Through the CSP Grants to Charter Management Organizations for Replication and Expansion of High-Quality Charter Schools (Charter Management Organization (or CMO)) competition (CFDA number 84.282M), the Department awards grants to charter management organizations (CMOs) to enable them to replicate or expand one or more high-quality charter schools. Grant funds may be used to expand the enrollment of one or more existing highquality charter schools, or to replicate one or more new charter schools that are based on an existing, high-quality charter school model. The application package requests programmatic and budgetary information needed to evaluate new applications and make funding decisions based on the authorizing statute, program regulations, and EDGAR. Respondents are non-profit Charter Management Organizations interested in applying for funding under the CMO program. Dated: November 28, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–725V, Mandatory Reliability Standards: COM Reliability Standards. OMB Control No.: 1902–0277. Type of Request: Three-year approval of the FERC–725V information collection requirements, as modified. Abstract: On August 15, 2016, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) filed a petition for Commission approval, pursuant to section 215(d)(1) of the Federal Power Act (‘‘FPA’’) 1 and Section 39.5 2 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s regulations, for approval of proposed Reliability Standard COM– 001–3 (Communications), the associated Implementation Plan, retirement of currently-effective Reliability Standard COM–001–2.1, and Violation Risk Factors (‘‘VRFs’’) and Violation Severity Levels (‘‘VSLs’’) associated with new Requirements R12 and R13 proposed in Reliability Standard COM–001–3. Proposed Reliability Standard COM– 001–3 reflects revisions developed under Project 2015–07 Internal Communications Capabilities, in 1 16 2 18 PO 00000 U.S.C. 824o (2012). CFR 39.5 (2015). Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 compliance with the Commission’s directive in Order No. 888 that NERC ‘‘develop modifications to COM–001–2, or develop a new standard, to address [the Commission’s] concerns regarding ensuring the adequacy of internal communications capability whenever internal communications could directly affect the reliability operations of the Bulk-Power System. Type of Respondents: Public utilities. Estimate of Annual Burden: 3 With respect to the proposed revisions to Reliability Standard COM–001–3 and the retirement of the currently-effective Reliability Standard COM–001–2.1, the Commission estimates that there will be no material change in industry information collection obligations because the Requirements R12 and R13 (which are additions to COM–001–3) do not impact the paperwork burden of impacted registered entities. Comments: Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden and cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
