In order to ensure the appropriate consideration, comments should reference the applicable OMB Control Number (see below).

Title of Collection: Quick Turnaround Surveys of the Workforce Investment Act. OMB Control Number: 1205–0436. Frequency: On occasion.

PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Description: ETA, in its role of providing broad program oversight and policy development, needs accurate, timely information on how services and systems under WIA are unfolding and on the challenges and successes states and local areas encounter. Only in this way can it properly discharge its obligations to issue policy clarifications, regulations and technical assistance. This need is particularly acute given that the workforce development system has been evolving rapidly in the several years since WIA was enacted. It is expected that WIA will continue to change rapidly, as Congress is currently considering its reauthorization, with multiple potential changes. However, much of the information available to ETA on key operational issues is impressionistic or anecdotal in nature, based on hearsay or unsystematic observations, and not accurate as to the incidence or scope nationally. When accurate nationwide information is available, as from long-term in-depth evaluation studies, it is often not timely. Thus ETA has a need for accurate and timely information that can be found only with systematic quick turnaround studies. For additional information, see related notice published in the Federal Register on March 30, 2010, (Vol. 75 page 15726). Dated: August 11, 2010.
