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 three year extension without revision of the Services to Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers Report, ETA Form 5148, and the One-Stop Career Center Complaint/Referral Record, ETA Form 8429 beyond November 30, 2008. The current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Information Collection Request (ICR) authorization number 1205–0039 expires on November 30, 2008.

The regulations at 20 CFR 651, 653, and 658 under the Wagner Peyser Act, as amended by the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, set forth requirements to ensure that Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers (MSFWs) receive services that are qualitatively equivalent and quantitatively proportionate to the services provided to non-MSFWs. In compliance with 20 CFR 653.109, DOL established record keeping requirements to allow for the efficient and effective monitoring of State Workforce Agencies’ (SWAs) regulatory compliance. The ETA Form 5148, Services to Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers Report, is used to collect data which are primarily used to monitor and measure the extent and effectiveness of SWA service delivery to MSFWs. The ETA Form 8429, One-Stop Career Center Compliant Referral Record, is used to collect and document complaints filed by MSFWs and non-MSFWs pursuant to the regulatory framework established at 20 CFR 658.400. II. Desired Focus of Comments The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments 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 by including 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. 37499 Agency: Employment and Training Administration.
