The December 2019 ICR relates to Section 117 of the Higher Education Act, which requires an "institution" to file a disclosure report with ED when it "receives a gift from" or "enters into a contract with" a "foreign source" that is valued at US$250,000 or more, either alone or in combination with other gifts and contracts with the same foreign source in the same calendar year.
