Office of Management and Budget
Notice of submission for OMB review; comment request.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has submitted the information collection listed as Appendix C at the end of this notice to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), OMB, for review under provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13). This new form will be required by OMB Circular A-21, ``Cost Principles for Educational Institutions,'' for the submission of facilities and administrative rate proposals by educational institutions. On September 10, 1997, (62 FR 47721) OMB proposed the use of a standard format for submitting of facilities and administrative rate proposals by educational institutions. OMB received 35 comments from Federal agencies, universities and professional organizations, all of whom favored the development of such a form. Based upon this information, OMB issued a Federal Register notice on August 12, 1999, (64 FR 44062) which proposed to revise Circular A-21 to incorporate a new form. OMB received 40 comments from Federal agencies, universities and professional organizations. Most commenters agreed with the concept of a standard format that would streamline the rate proposal submission process. In addition, many commenters had questions and requested clarifications regarding data to be included in the form or the format of the form. Changes were made to the form as appropriate. The comments and OMB responses are summarized in the Comments and Responses section.
Once this new form receives clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act, OMB will issue a final revision to incorporate the form in Circular A-21.
Submit comments on or before June 8, 2000.
