Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks continued PRA authorization for Job Corps application data collected on three forms (ETA–652, Job Corps Data Sheet; ETA–655, Statement from Court or Other Agency; and ETA–682, Child Care Certification) used for screening and enrollment purposes to determine eligibility for the Job Corp program in accordance with Workforce Investment Act requirements. The information collected concerns economic criteria and past behavior as well as information needed to certify an applicant’s arrangements for care of dependent children while the applicant is in the Job Corps. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1225–0025. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on June 18, 2013 (78 FR 36599). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authorization 
for the ETA to collect actual unemployment insurance administrative 
cost data from States' accounting records and projected expenditures 
for upcoming years. States use the RJM to submit detailed cost data 
electronically in a structured format (spreadsheet file). The 
information specifies salary and benefit rates, workloads, processing 
times, and non-personal services costs. The ETA uses RJM data to inform 
administrative funding allocations. ETA regional office data review and 
validation is also an important RJM component. Social Security Act 
sections 303(a)(1) and (6), 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(1) and (6), authorize this 
information collection.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of

[[Page 67200]]

law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to 
comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid 
Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB 
approval for this information collection under Control Number 1205-
0430.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL also notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on March 7, 2013 (78 FR 
14838).

The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     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;

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
