ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development is seeking comments on renewal of a reporting system for Public Law 102–477, ‘‘Indian Employment, Training and Related Services Demonstration Act of 1992.’’ The existing data collection, cleared under OMB Control Number 1076–0135, expires on November 30, 2006. This information collection requirement satisfies this statutory requirement. DATES: Submit comments on or before December 18, 2006. ADDRESSES: Send comments to Lynn Forcia, Chief, Division of Workforce Development, telefacsimile number (202) 208–6991 or write to Division of Workforce Development, Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development, 1951 Constitution Avenue, NW., Mail Stop 20–SIB, Washington, DC 20240. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You may request further information or obtain copies of the proposed information collection request from the Lynn Forcia, Chief, Division of Workforce Development at the address above. A report system for the Public Law 102–477 initiative expires November 30, 2006. This is a request for an extension of a previously approved information collection request. The information collection is needed to document satisfactory compliance with statutory requirements of the various integrated programs. Public Law 102–477 authorizes tribal governments to integrate federally funded employment, training and related services programs into a single, coordinated, comprehensive service delivery plan. Funding agencies include the Department of the Interior, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Health and Human Services. The Department of the Interior is statutorily required to serve as the lead agency. Section II of this Act requires that the Secretary of the Interior make available a single universal report format which shall be used by a tribal rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:24 Oct 17, 2006 Jkt 211001 government to report on integrated activities and expenditures undertaken by tribes. The Department of the Interior shares the information collected from these reports with the Department of Labor and the Department of Health and Human Services. Public Law 102–477 requires that the tribes report annually. Tribal governments voluntarily participating in Public Law 102–477 are required to annually complete one financial report, one narrative and one program statistical report. When the forms were first developed in 1993, the 7 pages replaced 166 pages of instructions and applications representing three different agencies and twelve different funded but related programs. We estimated a 95 percent reduction in reporting, which is consistent with the Paperwork Reduction Act. Since that time, Federal program additions and changes have affected the data collection. The revised proposed forms include 13 pages of forms and instructions if a tribal government decides to integrate the Department of Health and Human Services, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program into Public Law 102–477. If a tribal government does not include TANF, the tribe is required to report 8 of the 13 pages. In either event, Public Law 102– 477 reporting process continues to be a major reduction in reporting. Request for Comments The Department of the Interior requests your comments on this collection concerning: (a) The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents, such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Please note that an agency may not sponsor or request, and an individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it has a valid OMB Control Number. It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section, room 18, during the hours of 8 a.m. to PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61505 5 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, except for legal holidays. If you wish to have your name and/or address withheld, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. We will honor your request according to the requirements of the law. All comments from organizations or representatives will be available for review. We may withhold comments from review for other reasons. Information Collection Abstract OMB Control Number: 1076–0135. Type of review: Renewal. Title: A Reporting System for Public Law 102–477, Indian Employment, Training and Related Services Demonstration Project. Brief description of collection: Tribal governments voluntarily participating in Public Law 102–477 are statutorily required to annually complete one report including: (a) A 1-page program statistical form, (b) a 1-page financial report, and (c) a narrative which will describe what the tribal government is trying to accomplish with its employment, training and related services resources in its own circumstances and the extent to which it has succeeded. The narrative report may be in any format. In addition, those tribes voluntarily integrating the Department of Health and Human Services, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families must also complete an additional 1-page form. The entire reporting format includes 13 pages of forms and instructions. Respondents: Respondents are tribal governments, which voluntarily participate in Public Law 102–477. Number of respondents: We currently have 49 grantees representing 243 federally-recognized tribes. Estimated time per response: We estimate that completion of the reporting requirements will require 10 hours per year to complete for each grantee, times 49 equals 490 burden hours. If the tribal governments have also integrated Department of Health and Human Services, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families they must complete one additional form. We estimate that this would add an additional hour per respondent. If all 49 grantees add the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families to their Public Law 102–477 program, the total burden hours would equal 49 grantees times 11 hours or 539 total burden hours. Frequency of response: All voluntarily participating tribal governments in Public Law 102–477 must complete the required reports once each year of participation.

Request

AGENCY: Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the 
Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development is seeking comments on 
renewal of a reporting system for Public Law 102-477, ``Indian 
Employment, Training and Related Services Demonstration Act of 1992.'' 
The existing data collection, cleared under OMB Control Number 1076-
0135, expires on November 30, 2006. This information collection 
requirement satisfies this statutory requirement.

DATES: Submit comments on or before December 18, 2006.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to Lynn Forcia, Chief, Division of Workforce 
Development, telefacsimile number (202) 208-6991 or write to Division 
of Workforce Development, Office of Indian Energy and Economic 
Development, 1951 Constitution Avenue, NW., Mail Stop 20-SIB, 
Washington, DC 20240.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You may request further information or 
obtain copies of the proposed information collection request from the 
Lynn Forcia, Chief, Division of Workforce Development at the address 
above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A report system for the Public Law 102-477 
initiative expires November 30, 2006. This is a request for an 
extension of a previously approved information collection request.
    The information collection is needed to document satisfactory 
compliance with statutory requirements of the various integrated 
programs. Public Law 102-477 authorizes tribal governments to integrate 
federally funded employment, training and related services programs 
into a single, coordinated, comprehensive service delivery plan. 
Funding agencies include the Department of the Interior, the Department 
of Labor, and the Department of Health and Human Services. The 
Department of the Interior is statutorily required to serve as the lead 
agency. Section II of this Act requires that the Secretary of the 
Interior make available a single universal report format which shall be 
used by a tribal government to report on integrated activities and 
expenditures undertaken by tribes. The Department of the Interior 
shares the information collected from these reports with the Department 
of Labor and the Department of Health and Human Services.
    Public Law 102-477 requires that the tribes report annually. Tribal 
governments voluntarily participating in Public Law 102-477 are 
required to annually complete one financial report, one narrative and 
one program statistical report. When the forms were first developed in 
1993, the 7 pages replaced 166 pages of instructions and applications 
representing three different agencies and twelve different funded but 
related programs. We estimated a 95 percent reduction in reporting, 
which is consistent with the Paperwork Reduction Act. Since that time, 
Federal program additions and changes have affected the data 
collection. The revised proposed forms include 13 pages of forms and 
instructions if a tribal government decides to integrate the Department 
of Health and Human Services, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families 
(TANF) program into Public Law 102-477. If a tribal government does not 
include TANF, the tribe is required to report 8 of the 13 pages. In 
either event, Public Law 102-477 reporting process continues to be a 
major reduction in reporting.

Request for Comments

cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the
