Commission on Federal Paperwork, Washington, DC.
This study analyzes the paperwork burden placed on the educational community by the federal government and recommends ways to reduce those burdens while still providing the data needed for effective planning and administration. Information for the study was gathered through public hearings, interviews with federal agency personnel, analyses of government reports and studies, a survey of all Office of Education programs, surveys conducted by the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Association of College and University Business Officers, and indepth studies conducted at George Washington University and the University of Maryland at College Park. Separate sections of the report focus in turn on paperwork burdens related to grants and contracts, student financial aid, nondiscrimination requirements, and management controls. (Author/JG)
