ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Secretary announces the guidance documents the Department of Education (Department) is rescinding because they are outdated, after conducting a review of its guidance under Executive Order (E.O.) 13891. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Mahaffie, Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue SW, Room 6E–231, Washington, DC 20202. Telephone: (202) 453–7862. Email: Lynn.Mahaffie@ed.gov. If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) or a text telephone (TTY), call the Federal Relay Service (FRS), toll-free, at 1–800–877– 8339. SUMMARY: On October 9, 2019, the President issued E.O. 13891 titled ‘‘Promoting the Rule of SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents.’’ 84 FR 55235. Section 3(b) of the E.O. requires the Department to ‘‘review its guidance documents and, consistent with applicable law, rescind those guidance documents that it determines should no longer be in effect.’’ This notice notifies the public, including the Department’s stakeholders, of the guidance documents the Department rescinds as outdated (e.g., superseded by subsequent statutory amendments or enactments), in accordance with section 3(b) of E.O. 13891. The guidance documents identified as being rescinded in this notice do not include any guidance documents the Department has, is considering, or is planning to rescind through exercising the Department’s policy-making discretion (i.e., rescissions based on a change in Department policy or statutory interpretation). Additionally, section 3(a) of E.O. 13891 requires the Department to develop a guidance portal that contains or links to all of its guidance documents in effect. On February 26, 2020, the Department published a notice in the Federal Register announcing that its guidance portal was operational, in compliance with section 3(a) of the E.O. 85 FR 11056. Section 4 of E.O. 13891 requires the Department to finalize regulations to set forth processes and procedures for issuing guidance documents. The Department’s Spring 2020 Unified Agenda provides that the timetable for these interim final regulations is August 2020. See www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ eAgendaViewRule?pubId=202004& RIN=1801-AA22. The below table lists the guidance documents the Department rescinds, the office within the Department that issued the guidance, the date the guidance was issued, and a link to the guidance (which the Department will continue to make publicly available for historical purposes).

Notices

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION


Notice of the Rescission of Outdated Guidance Documents

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Secretary announces the guidance documents the Department 
of Education (Department) is rescinding because they are outdated, 
after conducting a review of its guidance under Executive Order (E.O.) 
13891.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Mahaffie, Department of 
Education, 400 Maryland Avenue SW, Room 6E-231, Washington, DC 20202. 
Telephone: (202) 453-7862. Email: [email protected].
    If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) or a text 
telephone (TTY), call the Federal Relay Service (FRS), toll-free, at 1-
800-877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 9, 2019, the President issued 
E.O. 13891 titled ``Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency 
Guidance Documents.'' 84 FR 55235. Section 3(b) of the E.O. requires 
the Department to ``review its guidance documents and, consistent with 
applicable law, rescind those guidance documents that it determines 
should no longer be in effect.'' This notice notifies the public, 
including the Department's stakeholders, of the guidance documents the 
Department rescinds as outdated (e.g., superseded by subsequent 
statutory amendments or enactments), in accordance with section 3(b) of 
E.O. 13891. The guidance documents identified as being rescinded in 
this notice do not include any guidance documents the Department has, 
is considering, or is planning to rescind through exercising the 
Department's policy-making discretion (i.e., rescissions based on a 
change in Department policy or statutory interpretation).
    Additionally, section 3(a) of E.O. 13891 requires the Department to 
develop a guidance portal that contains or links to all of its guidance 
documents in effect. On February 26, 2020, the Department published a 
notice in the Federal Register announcing that its guidance portal was 
operational, in compliance with section 3(a) of the E.O. 85 FR 11056.
    Section 4 of E.O. 13891 requires the Department to finalize 
regulations to set forth processes and procedures for issuing guidance 
documents. The Department's Spring 2020 Unified Agenda provides that 
the timetable for these interim final regulations is August 2020. See 
www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaViewRule?pubId=202004&RIN=1801-AA22.
    The below table lists the guidance documents the Department 
rescinds, the office within the Department that issued the guidance, 
the date the guidance was issued, and a link to the guidance (which the 
Department will continue to make publicly available for historical 
purposes).
    Documents rescinded by the Office of Postsecondary Education are 
listed in the Appendix to this notice. Those may be located at https://ifap.ed.gov/, by entering the title of the document into the Search 
function.
