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 is soliciting comments concerning a new data collection effort for the Technology-Based Learning Grants Evaluation. 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 May 18, 2010.

Background The Evaluation of the TechnologyBased Learning (TBL) Grants is a twoyear evaluation of grantees funded under the Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA) TBL Initiative (73 FR 35155 (June 20, 2008)) to implement TBL programs that increase worker access to training in a timely and effective manner, while simultaneously stimulating the development of new and innovative models and uses for TBL in the public workforce system. The evaluation will document and assess learners’ experiences and outcomes related to participating in such a program, and the implications for the public workforce system. As a key part of the TBL evaluation, ETA’s contractor will collect administrative data from grantees and administer a customer survey. The customer survey will provide information on customer satisfaction and participant outcomes, and thus inform future TBL projects. Since grantees are presently reporting only limited data about TBL participants to ETA, reasons for participation, challenges to participation, other workforce services received, and, of particular importance, satisfaction with TBL training and services would not otherwise be available in the absence of the survey. Thus, in order to more thoroughly evaluate the TBL program, participation, outcomes and satisfaction data will be gathered from both the limited administrative data and the customer survey. The survey will be conducted online and will provide basic demographic, programmatic, and outcome information on participants in TBL programs, and supply participants’ contact information for survey administration. 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; E:\FR\FM\19MRN1.SGM 19MRN1
