DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration Proposed Collection; Comment Request ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and other Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed collection of information on the Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment (REA) program. ETA is seeking Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval under the PRA95 to establish a system to collect data at the state level on REA workload counts and outcomes. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the ADDRESSES section below on or before October 24, 2005. ADDRESSES: Diane Wood, U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Room S4231, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210, Fax (202) 693– 3975; e-mail: wood.diane@dol.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Diane Wood, telephone: (202) 693–3212 (this is not a toll-free number); Fax (202) 693–3975, e-mail: wood.diane@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Funds were awarded to 21 states in FY 2005 to implement REA initiatives. The REA guidelines require that these funds be used to conduct in-person assessments in the One-Stop Career Centers. The REA must include a UI continued eligibility review, the provision of labor market information, development of a work-search plan and referral to reemployment services and/ or training, as appropriate. The guidelines require that participation VerDate jul<14>2003 16:42 Aug 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 II. Review Focus The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Assess whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for evaluation of the REA program, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of ETA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. III. Current Actions ETA proposes to require state workforce agencies (SWAs) that implement REA initiatives to report quarterly data for REA grants beginning in FY 2006. This will provide the only continuous source of information about the effectiveness of REAs and is necessary to monitor the program. SWAs submitting proposals for FY 2006 funding will be advised of the reporting requirements and report formats prior to the development of their proposal. The Department proposes collecting the following data elements for Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments (REAs). The quarterly activity report will be due at the end of each quarter and will reflect the REAs scheduled during the report quarter. The ETA 9060—Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments Workloads report includes the following 23 elements. 1. Number of claimants scheduled for their first REA—The sum of all claimants who were scheduled for their first REA of their current benefit year during the report quarter. 2. Number of REAs scheduled—This includes all REAs for which an official notice was sent to the claimant instructing them to report to the OneStop Career Center. It includes both those scheduled REAs for which the claimant reported as directed and those scheduled REAs for which the claimant PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49681 failed to report. It does not include those REAs which the claimant cancelled in advance and which were rescheduled with no disqualification. 3. Number of REAs completed—This number includes all completed REAs to which the claimant reported as directed. It includes REAs that were conducted for claimants who were rescheduled for an REA after missing an appointment. 4. Number of claimants reporting to reemployment services or training. For each REA, claimants should be reported in only one service category in items number 5, 6, and 7 below, based on the highest level of services received with core services as the lowest level and training as the highest. Core services, intensive services and training are defined in accordance with state definitions consistent with the WagnerPeyser Act, the Workforce Investment Act or other applicable legislation. 5. Number of claimants reporting to core reemployment services as a result of an REA. 6. Number of claimants reporting to intensive reemployment services as a result of an REA. 7. Number of claimants reporting to training as a result of an REA. 8. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disualification or established overpayments. This number includes all claimants for whom a nonmonetary determination has been issued holding them ineligible under any provision of state law. Claimants may be reported in more than one of the following categories: 9. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for a separation issue. 10. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for an able and available issue. 11. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for a disqualifying or deductible issue. 12. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for a refusal of suitable work issue. 13. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for an issue not covered in categories #9–12. 14. Number of completed REAs resulting in a establishment of an overpayment. 15. Dollar amount of overpayments established in item #14. 16. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report. This number includes those claimants who were sent an official notice to report for an REA, and who did not report as directed. It includes claimants who failed to report and who were subsequently rescheduled for an REA at a different time. It does not include E:\FR\FM\24AUN1.SGM 24AUN1 49682 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 163 / Wednesday, August 24, 2005 / Notices REAs that were cancelled in advance by the claimant and for which no disqualification was issued. 17. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report (reported in #16) and which were rescheduled without disqualification. 18. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report (reported in #16) which resulted in the claimant being disqualified for failure to meet a reporting requirement. 19. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report (reported in #16) which resulted in the claimant being disqualified for an issue other than failure to meet a reporting requirement. 20. Number of overpayments established as a result of failure to report (reported in #16). 21. Dollar amount of overpayments established as a result of failure to report (reported in #20). 22. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report (reported in #16) which did not result in either a rescheduling or a disqualification because the claimant stopped claiming UI. 23. Number of claimants reported in #22 who were identified as having returned to work (if available). The ETA 9061—Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments Outcomes report includes the following 16 elements. It will be submitted for the following two groups of claimants who filed a claim and established a UI benefit year in the report quarter. The outcome report would be due in the fifth quarter following the report quarter, after the benefit year has ended. As part of a state’s submission for an REA grant, a description of how the state will select a comparison group, group 1 below, will be required and scored. 1. Claimants in a state-defined comparison group. This group should consist of the universe of claimants who were in the target group from which REA participants could have been selected for an REA but were not selected. The claimants in this group should have characteristics as similar as possible to the selected REA participant group. The following data elements will be collected: a. Number of claimants who filed a claim and established a UI benefit year in the report quarter. b. Total weeks compensated. This number is the total weeks of benefits paid for those claimants reports in item a. above during their respective benefit years. This number includes weeks of partial payments. c.

Public library summer reading programs are common to all SLAAs and most of the nation’s approximately 9,100 local libraries. These programs are important resources for education in the United States and promote the vision of a society in which learning is seen as a community-wide responsibility supported by both formal and informal educational entities. While there is strong conviction in the library field that public library summer programs foster reading skills, public libraries collect little evaluative data. Under its convening authority IMLS will bring together 33 state and public library professionals on September 8–9 to explore current evaluation practice for public library summer reading programs and to identify a small number of common proxy measures for the outcomes of library summer reading programs. These measures will be piloted in a Web-based data collection and management resource for libraries in summer 2006. II. Current Actions Agency: Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Proposed Collection; Comment Request

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to 
reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance 
consultation program to provide the general public and other Federal 
agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing 
collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to 
ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, 
reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, 
collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of 
collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed.
    Currently, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is 
soliciting comments concerning the proposed collection of information 
on the Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment (REA) program. ETA is 
seeking Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval under the PRA95 
to establish a system to collect data at the state level on REA 
workload counts and outcomes.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the 
addresses section below on or before October 24, 2005.

ADDRESSES: Diane Wood, U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and 
Training Administration, Room S4231, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20210, Fax (202) 693-3975; e-mail: wood.diane@dol.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Funds were awarded to 21 states in FY 2005 to implement REA 
initiatives. The REA guidelines require that these funds be used to 
conduct in-person assessments in the One-Stop Career Centers. The REA 
must include a UI continued eligibility review, the provision of labor 
market information, development of a work-search plan and referral to 
reemployment services and/or training, as appropriate. The guidelines 
require that participation exclude those claimants who have a specific 
return-to-work date or who secure employment solely through a union 
hiring hall.

II. Review Focus

    The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments 
which:
     Assess whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for evaluation of the REA program, including whether the 
information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of ETA's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.

III. Current Actions

    ETA proposes to require state workforce agencies (SWAs) that 
implement REA initiatives to report quarterly data for REA grants 
beginning in FY 2006. This will provide the only continuous source of 
information about the effectiveness of REAs and is necessary to monitor 
the program. SWAs submitting proposals for FY 2006 funding will be 
advised of the reporting requirements and report formats prior to the 
development of their proposal.
    The Department proposes collecting the following data elements for 
Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments (REAs). The quarterly activity 
report will be due at the end of each quarter and will reflect the REAs 
scheduled during the report quarter.
    The ETA 9060--Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments Workloads 
report includes the following 23 elements.
    1. Number of claimants scheduled for their first REA--The sum of 
all claimants who were scheduled for their first REA of their current 
benefit year during the report quarter.
    2. Number of REAs scheduled--This includes all REAs for which an 
official notice was sent to the claimant instructing them to report to 
the One-Stop Career Center. It includes both those scheduled REAs for 
which the claimant reported as directed and those scheduled REAs for 
which the claimant failed to report. It does not include those REAs 
which the claimant cancelled in advance and which were rescheduled with 
no disqualification.
    3. Number of REAs completed--This number includes all completed 
REAs to which the claimant reported as directed. It includes REAs that 
were conducted for claimants who were rescheduled for an REA after 
missing an appointment.
    4. Number of claimants reporting to reemployment services or 
training. For each REA, claimants should be reported in only one 
service category in items number 5, 6, and 7 below, based on the 
highest level of services received with core services as the lowest 
level and training as the highest. Core services, intensive services 
and training are defined in accordance with state definitions 
consistent with the Wagner-Peyser Act, the Workforce Investment Act or 
other applicable legislation.
    5. Number of claimants reporting to core reemployment services as a 
result of an REA.
    6. Number of claimants reporting to intensive reemployment services 
as a result of an REA.
    7. Number of claimants reporting to training as a result of an REA.
    8. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disualification or 
established overpayments. This number includes all claimants for whom a 
nonmonetary determination has been issued holding them ineligible under 
any provision of state law. Claimants may be reported in more than one 
of the following categories:
    9. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for a 
separation issue.
    10. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for an 
able and available issue.
    11. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for a 
disqualifying or deductible issue.
    12. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for a 
refusal of suitable work issue.
    13. Number of completed REAs resulting in a disqualification for an 
issue not covered in categories 9-12.
    14. Number of completed REAs resulting in a establishment of an 
overpayment.
    15. Dollar amount of overpayments established in item 14.
    16. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report.
    This number includes those claimants who were sent an official 
notice to report for an REA, and who did not report as directed. It 
includes claimants who failed to report and who were subsequently 
rescheduled for an REA at a different time. It does not include

[[Page 49682]]

REAs that were cancelled in advance by the claimant and for which no 
disqualification was issued.
    17. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report 
(reported in 16) and which were rescheduled without 
disqualification.
    18. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report 
(reported in 16) which resulted in the claimant being 
disqualified for failure to meet a reporting requirement.
    19. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report 
(reported in 16) which resulted in the claimant being 
disqualified for an issue other than failure to meet a reporting 
requirement.
    20. Number of overpayments established as a result of failure to 
report (reported in 16).
    21. Dollar amount of overpayments established as a result of 
failure to report (reported in 20).
    22. Number of REAs for which the claimant failed to report 
(reported in 16) which did not result in either a rescheduling 
or a disqualification because the claimant stopped claiming UI.
    23. Number of claimants reported in 22 who were identified 
as having returned to work (if available).
    The ETA 9061--Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments Outcomes 
report includes the following 16 elements. It will be submitted for the 
following two groups of claimants who filed a claim and established a 
UI benefit year in the report quarter. The outcome report would be due 
in the fifth quarter following the report quarter, after the benefit 
year has ended. As part of a state's submission for an REA grant, a 
description of how the state will select a comparison group, group 1 
below, will be required and scored.
    1. Claimants in a state-defined comparison group. This group should 
consist of the universe of claimants who were in the target group from 
which REA participants could have been selected for an REA but were not 
selected. The claimants in this group should have characteristics as 
similar as possible to the selected REA participant group. The 
following data elements will be collected:
    a. Number of claimants who filed a claim and established a UI 
benefit year in the report quarter.

benefits paid for those claimants reports in item a. above during their 
respective benefit years. This number includes weeks of partial 
payments.
    c. Total benefits paid. This number is the total dollar amount of 
benefits paid to those claimants reported in item a. above during their 
respective benefit years. This number includes weeks of partial 
payments.
