of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's 
information collection requirements and provide the requested data in 
the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed 
information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The 
Department of Education is especially interested in public comment 
addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to 
the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be 
processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden 
accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the 
Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, 
including through the use of information technology. Please note that 
written comments received in response to this notice will be considered 
public records.
    Title of Collection: Case Service Report (RSA-911).
    OMB Control Number: 1820-0508.
    Type of Review: Extension without change of an existing collection 
of information.
    Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 80.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 6,500.
    Abstract: The data comprising the Case Service Report (RSA-911) are 
mandated by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (the Act). 
Applicable portions of the Rehabilitation Act explicitly or implicitly 
require the recording and reporting of specific data elements by state 
vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies to the Rehabilitation Services 
Administration (RSA). Section 13 of the Act requires the Commissioner 
to collect and report information specified in section 101(a)(10) to 
the Congress and the President in the Annual Report. Section 14 of the 
Act requires the Commissioner to conduct evaluations of the VR program. 
The information from this data collection is used in evaluating the 
outcomes of the program. Section 626 requires the same information to 
be reported for individuals who received supported employment (SE) 
services. RSA-911 data are also needed to satisfy the requirements of 
Section 131 calling for an exchange of data between RSA, the Social 
Security Administration and the Department of Labor.
