SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Bureau of Indian Education Higher 
Education Grant Program Annual Report Form (OMB 1076-0106) was 
published in a 60 day comment notice which included the Higher 
Education Grant Application Form, OMB 1076-0101 on October 16, 
2007 (72 FR 58680). A review of the Higher Education Grant Program 
Annual Report Form (OMB 1076-0106) determined the information 
collected no longer needs clearance because it is information already 
gathered under Higher Education Grant Application Form, OMB 

1076-0101. Tribal employees, under Pub. L. 93-638 acting as 
Federal agents, prepared the report. The information collection under 
1076-0101 is mandatory to be considered for a benefit.
    Request for Comments: The Bureau of Indian Education requests you 
to send your comments on this collection of information to the 
locations listed in the ADDRESSES section. Your comments should 
address: (a) The necessity of this collection of information for the 
proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether 
the collection of information will have practical utility; (b) The 
accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden (hours and costs) of 
the collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could enhance the 
quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and 
(d) Ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the 
information on the respondents, such as through the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Please 
note that an agency may not sponsor nor request, and an individual need 
not respond to, a collection of information unless it has a valid OMB 
Control Number.
    It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the Bureau of Indian Education location listed in the 
ADDRESSES section, room 3609, during the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. EDT, 
Monday through Friday except for legal holidays. Before including your 
address, telephone number, e-mail address or other personally 
identifiable information, be advised that your entire comment including 
your personally identifiable information may be made public at any 
time. While you may request that we withhold your personally 
identifiable information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to 
do so. We do not consider anonymous comments. All comments from 
representatives of businesses or organizations will be made available 
for review. We may withhold comments from review for other reasons.
    OMB has up to 60 days to make a decision on the submission for 
renewal, but may make the decision after 30 days. Therefore, to receive 
the best consideration of your comments, you should submit them closer 
to 30 days than 60 days.
