ED Seeks Nominations for Negotiated Rulemaking

January 6, 2009

The Department of Education issued a notice on December 31 inviting nominations for individuals to serve on negotiated rulemaking teams to help ED draft regulations to implement the Higher Education Opportunity Act. In the notice, ED lays out the topics that will be covered by five committees:

  • Team I -- Loans, Lender/General Loan Issues
  • Team II -- Loans—School-based Loan Issues
  • Team III -- Accreditation
  • Team IV -- Discretionary Grants
  • Team V -- General and Non-Loan Programmatic Issues

Business officers and bursars are key stakeholders that ED would like to have represented on the teams. NACUBO intends to nominate members to serve as negotiators on our behalf and could use a few more volunteers. In particular, we are seeking business officers from institutions that participate in the TRIO, GEAR UP, and migrant education programs who are interested in representing NACUBO on Team IV. A considerable time commitment is involved, with three to four three-day meetings to be scheduled between February and May in Washington. NACUBO will cover travel expenses. If you might be interested, please contact Anne Gross for more details. The deadline for submitting nominations to ED is January 23.
