SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks continued PRA authorization 
for the ETA to collect quarterly reports from States about employment 
services offered to Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) 
participants and for American Job Centers to contact VRAP participants. 
This information collection allows for VRAP reporting and employment 
services outreach described in VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011, Public 
Law 112-56, section 211, directing the Department of Veterans' Affairs 
(VA)--in cooperation with the DOL--to pay for up to 12 months of a 
training program in a high demand occupation for unemployed eligible 
veterans between 35 and 60 years of age. The DOL will use the 
information collected to ensure services are being offered throughout 
all States and to provide any technical assistance, if necessary. The 
information will also be incorporated in a report to the Congress about 
the program.
    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 1205-0511.
    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 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 July 24, 2013 (78 FR 
44600).
    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. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205-0511. 
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;
     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 submission of responses.
