[[Page 75949]]

I. Background

    Background: Section 3304(a)(9)(B), of the Internal Revenue Code 
(IRC) of 1986, requires states to participate in an arrangement for 
combining employment and wages covered under the different state laws 
for the purpose of determining unemployed workers' entitlement to 
unemployment compensation. The Interstate Arrangement for Combining 
Employment and Wages for combined wage claims (CWC), promulgated at 20 
CFR 616, requires the prompt transfer of all relevant and available 
employment and wage data between states upon request. The Benefit 
Payment Promptness Standard, 20 CFR 640, requires the prompt payment of 
unemployment compensation including benefits paid under the CWC 
arrangement. The ETA 586 report provides the ETA/Office of Unemployment 
Insurance with information necessary to measure the scope and effect of 
the CWC program and to monitor the performance of each state in 
responding to wage transfer data requests and the payment of benefits.

II. Review Focus

    The Department 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.

III. Current Actions

    This information is necessary in order for ETA to analyze program 
performance, know when corrective action plans are needed, and to 
target technical assistance resources. Without this report, it would be 
impossible for the ETA to identify claims and benefit activity under 
the CWC program and carry out the Secretary's responsibility for 
program oversight.
