The current MSFW reporting and recordkeeping system expires in June 2005. This is a request to revise the current MSFW program reporting requirements to include data elements necessary for assessing grantee progress against common measures of performance beginning July 1, 2005. In 2002, under the President’s Management Agenda, OMB and other Federal agencies developed a set of common performance measures to be applied to certain Federally-funded employment and training programs with similar strategic goals. Although the common measures are an integral part of ETA’s performance accountability system, these measures provide only part of the information necessary to effectively oversee the workforce investment system. ETA will continue to collect from grantees data on program activities, participants, and outcomes that are necessary for program management and to convey full and accurate information on the performance of workforce programs to policymakers and stakeholders. The value of implementing common measures is the ability to describe in a similar manner the core purposes of the workforce system—how many people found jobs; did people stay employed; and did earnings increase. Multiple sets of performance measures have burdened states and grantees as they are required to report performance outcomes based on varying definitions and methodologies. By minimizing the different reporting and performance requirements, common performance measures can facilitate the integration of service delivery, reduce barriers to cooperation among programs, and enhance the ability to assess the effectiveness and impact of the workforce investment system, including the performance of the system in serving individuals facing significant barriers to employment. This revision to the MSFW program reporting requirements identifies a minimum level of information collection that is necessary to comply with Equal Opportunity requirements, holds grantees appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they receive, including common performance measures, and allows the Department to VerDate jul<14>2003 14:55 Apr 20, 2005 Jkt 205001 fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities.

In addition, the employers have requested an interim order based on the alternative conditions specified by the variance application. Since these conditions are the same as the conditions specified in the most recent permanent variance granted by the Agency for these boatswains’-chair and hoist-tower provisions, OSHA is granting the applicants’ request for interim orders. DATES: Submit comments and requests for a hearing by May 23, 2005. ADDRESSES: Electronic. OSHA also permits electronic submission of comments (but not attachments) and hearing requests through its website at http://ecomments.osha.gov.

Send these comments and requests, identified with the docket number (i.e., V–04–2), to the OSHA Docket Office at (202) 693–1648; hard copies of these comments are not required. Instead of transmitting facsimile copies of additional material that supplement their comments (e.g., studies and journal articles), commenters may submit this material, in triplicate hard copy, to the OSHA Docket Office, Technical Data Center, Room N–2625, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20210.

Regular mail, express delivery, hand delivery, and messenger service. Submit three copies of comments and any additional material (e.g., studies and journal articles), as well as hearing requests, to the OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. V–04–1, Technical Data Center, Room N–2625, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone: (202) 693–2350.
