Overview of Department of Education's Regulatory Agenda for Higher Education

The U.S. Department of Education initiated a negotiated rulemaking (NegReg) process to explore new regulations around a number of issues, including defining Gainful Employment and incentive compensation. The NegReg meetings concluded on January 25‰-29, 2010 with negotiators unable to reach consensus on 5 of the 14 issues. The Department is now in the process of developing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) which would be released for public comment.
