FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request more information on this proposed information collection or to obtain a copy of the proposal and associated collection instruments, please write to OUSD(A&S) Chief Information Security Office, 3015 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC. Attn: Ms. Katherine Arrington, 703– 695–9332. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Trusted Capital Digital Marketplace Application; OMB Control Number 0704–XXXX. Needs and Uses: Per the authority vested in the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) by Section 1711 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)) has proposed a ‘‘Trusted Capital’’ initiative in the form of a public-private partnership designed to convene trusted sources of private capital with innovative companies critical to the defense industrial base (DIB) and national security. The initiative includes establishment of a Trusted Capital Digital Marketplace (TCDM) to facilitate business relationships between eligible investors (‘‘Capital Providers’’) and eligible small and medium-sized businesses that have been ‘‘downselected’’ by Department of Defense (DoD) Components based on relevancy, technical merit, business viability, or innovativeness (‘‘Capability Providers’’). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Nov 30, 2020 Jkt 253001 The COVID–19 pandemic highlighted the criticality of the security and resiliency of defense supply chains. The Federal emergency enabled DoD to accelerate initiatives to identify constraints and risks in our supply chains that were initially identified in the Executive Order (E.O.) 13806 report, which was published in 2018. One of the risk archetypes identified in the report is foreign dependency on capital and supply chains. Although DoD will always have a diverse, domestic and international supply chain, we recognize that this comes with some risk. COVID–19 magnified that risk and the difficulties of offshore sources of capital and supply in times of global emergencies. The OUSD(A&S) Trusted Capital program offers critical technology companies an alternative to adversarial capital. To accomplish this important national security mission the Trusted Capital program requires the ability to gather data required to conduct national security and supply chain due-diligence to prioritize ‘‘trusted’’ sources of commercial capital to offset direct financial distress in the DIB and support our partners affected by the virus with investments and local job creation. Information collected will be used in determining an applicant’s eligibility for TCDM participation. Parties will complete an electronic application and be subjected to a due diligence screening process to assess for adversarial foreign ownership, influence, or control—as well as other national security risks. In the event additional information is necessary to process an application, additional inquiries may be sent to the applicant. Applicants that receive a favorable due diligence screening adjudication by OUSD(A&S) will be approved for TCDM participation. In addition to initial application requirements, participants will be subject to continuous reporting obligations. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Annual Burden Hours: 450 hours. Number of Respondents: 300. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses: 300. Average Burden per Response: 1.5 hours. Frequency: Annually. Dated: November 25, 2020. Aaron T.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 53. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 636. Abstract: The Office of School Support and Accountability (SSA) administers Title I, Sections 1001–1004 (School Improvement); Title I, Part A (Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies); Title I, Part B (Enhanced Assessments Grants (EAG), and Grants for State Assessments and Related Activities); Title II, Part A (Supporting Effective Instruction); Title III, Part A (English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement); and School Improvement Grants (SIG). Quarterly progress checks, phone or inperson conversations every three months of a fiscal year with State directors and coordinators, help ensure that State Educational Agencies (SEAs) are making progress toward increasing student achievement and improving the quality of instruction for all students through regular conversations about the quality of SEA implementation of SSA administered programs. The information shared with the SSA helps inform the selection and delivery of technical assistance to SEAs and aligns structures, processes, and routines so the SSA can regularly monitor the connection between grant administration and intended outcomes. Progress checks also allow the SSA to proactively engage with SEAs to identify any issues ahead of formal monitoring visits, decreasing the need for enforcement actions and minimizing burden for SEAs. ED will collect this data from the 53 grantees that receive the grants listed above to inform its review of grantee implementation, outcomes, oversight, and accountability. In order to allow for a comprehensive program review of SSA grantees, we are requesting a threeyear clearance with this form.

administered programs. The information shared with the SSA helps inform 
the selection and delivery of technical assistance to SEAs and aligns 
structures, processes, and routines so the SSA can regularly monitor 
the connection between grant administration and intended outcomes. 
Progress checks also allow the SSA to proactively engage with SEAs to 
identify any issues ahead of formal monitoring visits, decreasing the 
need for enforcement actions and minimizing burden for SEAs. ED will 
collect this data from the 53 grantees that receive the grants listed
