SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Under the Information Collection Review process, each grantee 
receiving NFJP funds for employment and training activities is required 
to submit the following:
     The BIS (ETA-9093) is submitted as part of the annual 
grant plan, and is used to collect information on how grant funds will 
be spent during the program year.
     The PPS (ETA-9094) is submitted as part of the annual 
grant plan, and is used to project the number of participants and the 
array of services to be provided for the program year.
     The PSS (ETA-9095) is submitted each quarter and is used 
to collect data on actual participant numbers and services. ETA has 
added a short section to Form 9095 to collect narrative information on 
grant activities.
     The WIASPR is submitted each quarter and collects 
individual participant records containing demographic, service, and 
outcome data on individuals who exit the program. Data from the WIASPR 
are used by ETA to calculate the common performance measures for 
entered employment, retention, and earnings.
     The HAS (ETA-9164), is a new quarterly reporting form for 
grantees receiving NFJP funds for housing assistance activities. This 
report will collect data on the number of individuals and families 
served and narrative information on grant activities.
     All NFJP grantees are required by regulation to submit a 
grant plan narrative covering the two-year grant period cycle. The 
grant plan narrative is a comprehensive service delivery plan and a 
projection of participant services and expenditures. ETA provides 
guidance to the grantees regarding the content of the annual plan 
narrative and submission requirements.

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.
