The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) of the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) will use this data collection form to capture the performance data form grantees funded under the American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Services (AIVRS) program (CFDA #84.250). RSA and ED will use the information gathered annually to: (a) comply with reporting requirements under the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) 34 CFR part 75.118, (b) measure performance on the program in accordance with the program indicators identified in the Government Performance Result Act (GPRA), and (c) provide information annually to Congress on activities conducted under this program. The proposed changes to the existing from will improve user friendliness, clarity of data element questions, and accuracy of data reported. These revisions are not significantly different from the original collection, but are proposed to provide clarity, consistency, and usability. In order to improve the user friendliness of the form, some sections were reorganized to enhance the natural flow of data collection. data element questions were revised to improve clarity of the requests, which will result in accuracy of data being reported. On additional data element was inserted in order to ensure grantees remain compliant with regulatory requirements, but the additional data element is offset by the elimination and consolidation of other sections in this ICR. Additionally, ED had revised how it will collect survey data regarding the Training and Technical Needs of AIVRS projects and the entire section of the report is deleted to further reduces burden. The Training an Technical Needs assessment survey not be conducted independent of the ICR.

Miscellaneous Actions
The only change relates to the submission of the annual performance report (APR). Instead of submitting the APR in RSA's management information system (it went through a change last year and is no longer of use to the program) they will submit the APR to their program officers. They already submit the cover sheet to their program officers and will be less cumbersome for the grantees. Grantees will receive the locked and fillable MS Word APR directly from RSA staff via e-mail. Grantees will not be required to register and log into a web-based platform. This program change reduction is -43.
