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.

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.
