Open Licensing Requirements: Unless an exception applies, if you are awarded a grant under this competition, you will be required to openly license to the public grant deliverables created in whole, or in part, with Department grant funds. When the deliverable consists of modifications to pre-existing works, the license extends only to those modifications that can be separately identified and only to the extent that open licensing is permitted under the terms of any licenses or other legal restrictions on the use of pre-existing works. Additionally, a grantee or subgrantee that is awarded competitive grant funds must have a plan to disseminate these public grant deliverables. This dissemination plan can be developed and submitted after your application has been reviewed and selected for funding. For additional information on the open licensing requirements please refer to 2 CFR 3474.20(c). 4. 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 multiyear award, you must submit an annual performance report (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. 5. Performance Measures: The Department has established the following Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 performance measures for the IAL program: (1) The percentage of four-year-old children participating in the project who achieve significant gains in oral language skills; (2) the percentage of fourth graders participating in the project who demonstrated individual student growth (i.e., an improvement in their achievement) over the past year on State reading or language arts assessments under section 1111(b)(3) of the ESEA; (3) the percentage of eighth graders participating in the project who demonstrated individual student growth (i.e., an improvement in their VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:31 Apr 17, 2018 Jkt 244001 achievement) over the past year on State reading or language arts assessments under section 1111(b)(3) of the ESEA; (4) the percentage of schools participating in the project whose bookto-student ratios increase from the previous year; and (5) the percentage of participating children who receive at least one free, grade- and languageappropriate book of their own. All grantees will be expected to submit an APR that includes data addressing these performance measures to the extent that they apply to the grantee’s project. 6. Continuation Awards: In making a continuation award under 34 CFR 75.253, the Secretary considers, among other things: Whether a grantee has made substantial progress in achieving the goals and objectives of the project; whether the grantee has expended funds in a manner that is consistent with its approved application and budget; and, if the Secretary has established performance measurement requirements, the performance targets in the grantee’s approved application. In making a continuation award, 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This package contains: (1) OMB No. 1910-
5177; (2) Information Collection Request Title: Department of Energy 
Superior Energy Performance (SEP) Certification and 50001 Ready 
Recognition; (3) Type of Review: Renewal; (4) Purpose: This Information 
Collection Request applies to the Department of Energy (DOE) voluntary 
ISO 50001 programs for industrial facilities: Superior Energy 
Performance[supreg] (SEP[supreg]) and 50001 ReadyTM 
recognition. SEP is an energy efficiency certification and recognition 
program for commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities 
demonstrating excellence in energy management as well as continual 
improvement in energy efficiency through third-party verified energy 
performance. 50001 Ready recognition is a self-attestation of the 
implementation of an ISO 50001 energy management system without the 
need for external audits.
    DOE's 50001 Ready provides an on-ramp towards SEP certification. It 
is a self-guided approach for facilities to establish an energy 
management system and self-attest to the structure of the ISO 50001 
energy management system. SEP certification builds on ISO 50001 
provides a rigorous, internationally-recognized business process for

certification cycles, and provide recognition for verified energy 
performance improvements. 50001 Ready collects a minimal amount of 
self-attested information to manage and track recognition cycles and to 
recognize the achievements of its participants.
    The following types of information are collected from primary 
participants: (1) Background data, including contact information and 
basic information and basic facility information about its energy use, 
energy consumption, and energy performance indicators--collected in the 
SEP Application Form; (2) Information on energy performance improvement 
in SEP-certified facilities--collected in the SEP Energy Performance 
Improvement Report. 50001 Ready collects only a subset of the same 
types of information, and without the need for external audit. 
Background data will primarily be used to track basic information about 
SEP and 50001 Ready participants and identify opportunities to provide 
participants with technical assistance. Basic information about a 
facility's energy use, energy consumption, and energy performance 
indicators will be used to administer SEP and 50001 Ready. Information 
on energy performance improvement will be used by DOE to manage and 
track participation cycles, and to track the results of participation 
in SEP and 50001 Ready. Responses to the DOE's Information Collection 
Request will be voluntary. (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 
233; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Responses: 233; (7) Annual 
Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 333; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting
