SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) program 
allows for the targeting of reemployment services to those most likely 
to exhaust their benefits. The ETA 9048 and ETA 9049 are the only means 
of tracking the activities in the WPRS program. The ETA 9048 reports on 
the numbers and flows of claimants at the various stages of the WPRS 
system from initial profiling through the completion of specific 
reemployment services. This allows for evaluation and monitoring of the 
program. The ETA 9049 gives a limited, but inexpensive, look at the 
reemployment experience of profiled claimants who were referred to 
services by examining the State's existing wage record files to 
identify the subsequent quarter in which the referred individuals 
became employed, what wages they earned and whether they have changed 
industries.

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.

III. Current Actions

    Type of Review: Extension without changes.
