SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    Public Law 97-362, Miscellaneous Revenue Act of 1982, amended the 
Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Servicemembers (UCX) law (5 U.S.C. 
8509), and Public Law 96-499, Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, 
amended the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) law 
(5 U.S.C. 8501, et. seq.) requiring each Federal employing agency to 
pay the costs of regular and extended UCFE/UCX benefits paid to its 
employees by the State Workforce Agencies (SWAs). The ETA 191 report 
submitted quarterly by each SWA shows the amount of benefits that 
should be charged to each Federal employing agency. The Office of 
Workforce Security uses this information to aggregate the SWA quarterly 
charges and submit one official bill to each Federal agency being 
charged. Federal agencies then reimburse the Federal Employees 
Compensation (FEC) Account maintained by the U.S. Treasury.

II. Review Focus

which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency'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
