consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies 
with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing

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 extension (without change) of the 
following data collection and reporting forms for the Migrant and 
Seasonal Farmworker Program, also known as the National Farmworker Jobs 
Program (NFJP): ETA Form 9093, ETA Form 9094, and ETA Form 9095 (OMB 
Approval Number 1205-0425, expires December 31, 2009).
    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.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the 
addressee's section below on or before October 26, 2009.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to Alina Walker, Program Manager, 
National Farmworker Jobs Program, Division of Adult Services, Office of 
Workforce Investment, Employment and Training Administration, U.S. 
Department of Labor, Room S-4231, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW.,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Each NFJP grantee administering funds is required to submit a 
Budget Information Summary report (ETA Form 9093), a Program Planning 
Report (ETA Form 9094), and a quarterly Program Status Report (ETA Form 
9095). ETA Form 9095 contains information related to levels of 
participation and service, related assistance activities, and actual 
placements in employment. In addition, each grantee submits a quarterly 
file of individual records on all participants who exit the program, 
called the Workforce Investment Act Standardized Participant Record 
(WIASPR).
    In 2001, OMB and other Federal agencies developed a set of common 
measures to be applied to certain Federally-funded employment and 
training programs with similar strategic goals. As part of this 
initiative, ETA issued Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 
28-04, Common Measures Policy. The value of implementing common 
measures is the ability to describe in a similar manner the core 
purposes of the workforce system--how many people found jobs, did they 
keep those jobs, and what were their earnings. Implementing a set of 
common measures can facilitate the integration of service delivery, 
reduce barriers to cooperation among programs, and enhance the ability 
to assess the effectiveness and impact of the workforce investment 
system, including the performance of the system in serving individuals 
facing significant barriers to employment.
    The common measures are an integral part of ETA's performance 
accountability system, and ETA will continue to collect from grantees 
the data on program activities, participants, and outcomes that are 
necessary for program management and to convey full and accurate 
information on the performance of workforce programs to policymakers 
and stakeholders.
    The extension to the NFJP reporting system identifies a minimum 
level of information collection that is necessary to comply with Equal 
Opportunity requirements, holds grantees appropriately accountable for 
the Federal funds they receive, assesses progress against a set of 
common performance measures, and allows the Department to fulfill its 
oversight and management responsibilities.
    The three adult common measures that apply to NFJP grantees are 
Entered Employment Rate, Employment Retention Rate, and Average 
Earnings. Grantees currently collect and submit the data necessary to 
report on these performance measures.

II. Review Focus

    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, 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.
