The determination was issued on February 4, 2008. The Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on February 22, 2008 (73 FR 9836). The determination was based on the Department’s findings that, during the relevant period, the subject firm did not shift production of magnetic components and assemblies to a foreign country and did not import magnetic components and assemblies. The determination also stated that the workers’ separations are attributable to a domestic shift of production. The request for reconsideration alleges that the subject workers do not produce magnetic components and assemblies but produce magnets, magnet production shifted to China, the subject firm is likely to import magnets following the shift abroad, and the subject firm’s customers have increased their magnet imports. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation. yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision.

This program helps to ensure that the 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. A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the addressee section of this notice or by accessing: http://www.doleta.gov/ OMBCN/OMBControlNumber.cfm. DATES: Submit comments to the office listed in the addressee section below on or before May 12, 2008. ADDRESSES: Submit comments to Andrew W. Spisak, Office of Workforce Security, Employment and Training Administration, U. S. Department of Labor, Room S–4522, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone: 202–693–3196 (this is not a toll-free number); fax: 202–693–3975; email: spisak.andrew@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background: Required by Congress under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), the Department’s Strategic Plan is an integral part of the budget process. Among the purposes of the GPRA are to improve Federal program effectiveness and public accountability by focusing on program results, service quality, and customer satisfaction. PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13013 Strategic Goal 4 in the Department’s fiscal year (FY) 2006—2011 strategic plan—Strengthened Economic Protections —focuses on improving the operational performance and effectiveness of the federal/state UI program. Performance Goal 4A supports this goal with performance measures to ‘‘Make timely and accurate benefit payments to unemployed workers, facilitate the reemployment of unemployment insurance beneficiaries, and set up unemployment tax accounts promptly for new employers.’’ ETA collects the data to measure the facilitation of reemployment of UI benefit recipients through the ETA 9047 report. OMB approved the Department’s request to begin collecting UI reemployment data through the ETA 9047 report on July 26, 2005. ETA issued reporting instructions in Unemployment Insurance Program Letter (UIPL) No. 1–06 (October 6, 2005), and State Workforce Agencies began reporting data to ETA in March 2006. Using the reemployment data submitted by the states through the ETA 9047 report, ETA calculated a baseline for the UI GPRA reemployment rate measure. In Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) No. 24–05 Change 1, ETA announced that the baseline reemployment rate was 62.4%, and set the FY 2007 GPRA Facilitate Reemployment goal at 65%. The TEGL also advised states that the development of a UI Performs measure ‘‘with a criterion by which to assess individual states’’ success in facilitating UI reemployment’’ was in progress. Data Collection Each calendar quarter, states report on the ETA 9047 report separate counts for individuals receiving their first UI payments who are exempt from work search/employment service registration (‘‘exempt’’), in most cases because they are job-attached with definite recall dates, and those who must conduct work search or register with the employment service (‘‘nonexempt’’). States also report on the ETA 9047 report the number of those first payment recipients for whom intrastate or out-ofstate employers reported wages in the subsequent quarter. States obtain these counts by running computer crossmatches of the Social Security Numbers (SSNs) of the claimants who received a first UI payment with the UI wage records for the subsequent calendar quarter. ETA issued instructions on obtaining out-of-state reemployment data through matching the SSNs of UI first payment recipients with UI wage records in the National E:\FR\FM\11MRN1.SGM 11MRN1
