SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Sep 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department’s information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: Magnet Schools Assistance Program—Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Table Form. OMB Control Number: 1855–0025. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 162. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 81. Abstract: The collection of this information is part of the governmentwide effort to improve the performance and accountability of all federal programs, under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) passed in 1993, the Uniform Guidance, and EDGAR. Under GPRA, a process for using performance indicators to set program performance goals and to measure and report program results was established. To implement GPRA, ED developed GPRA measures at every program level to quantify and report program progress required by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended. Under the Uniform Guidance and EDGAR, recipients of federal awards are required to submit performance and financial expenditure information. The GPRA program level measures and budget information for the Magnet Schools PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48297 Assistance Program (MSAP) are reported in the Annual Performance Report (APR). The APR is required under 2 CFR 200.328 and 34 CFR 75.118 and 75.590. The annual report provides data on the status of the funded project that corresponds to the scope and objectives established in the approved application and any amendments. To ensure that accurate and reliable data are reported to Congress on program implementation and performance outcomes, the MSAP APR collects the raw data from grantees in a consistent format to calculate these data in the aggregate. The Department now seeks to revise the MSAP Data Tables and Budget Form and submits this revision package for public comment and OMB review, comment and approval. The revised MSAP Data Tables and Budget Form will be used for the performance reports that are due in May 2019. Dated: September 19, 2018.
