Grants awarded will provide SWAs the opportunity to develop or expand State workforce longitudinal administrative data systems. These State longitudinal data systems will, at a minimum, include information on programs that provide training, employment services, and unemployment insurance; connect with education data contained in Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) databases; be linked longitudinally at the individual level to allow for enhanced opportunity for evaluation of federally and State-supported education and workforce programs; be capable of generating workforce training provider performance information and outcomes in a standardized, easy to understand format (e.g. scorecards), consistent with all applicable Federal and State privacy laws; and lead to better information for customers and stakeholders of the workforce system. Where such longitudinal systems do not exist or are in early development, WDQI grant assistance may be used to design and develop these systems. WDQI grant assistance can also be used to improve upon existing State longitudinal systems. Current WDQI grant recipients who did not receive a Round III award under solicitation SGA–DFA PY–12–07 and states that currently do not have a WDQI grant are eligible for this competition. The complete SGA and any subsequent SGA amendments in connection with this solicitation are described in further detail on ETA’s Web site at http://www.doleta.gov/ grants/ or on http://www.grants.gov. The Web sites provide application information, eligibility requirements, review and selection procedures, and other program requirements governing this solicitation. The closing date for receipt of applications under this announcement is March 25, 2014. Applications must be received no later than 4:00:00 p.m. Eastern Time. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Linda Forman, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–4716, Washington, DC 20210; Telephone: 202–693–3416.

[FR Doc. 2014–01551 Filed 1–27–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–FN–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–83,154] Polyone Designed Structures and Solutions LLC, a Subsidiary of Polyone Corporation, Donora, Pennsylvania; Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration By application dated December 2, 2013, Teamsters Local No. 205 requested administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding workers’ eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) applicable to workers and former workers of Polyone Designed Structures and Solutions LLC, a subsidiary of Polyone Corporation, Donora, Pennsylvania (subject firm). The determination was issued on November 5, 2013. The Department’s Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on November 26, 2013 (78 FR 70581–70583). Workers at the subject firm were engaged in activities related to the production of color additives and inks. The negative determination was based on the Department’s findings that with respect to Section 222(a)(2)(A)(ii) of the Act, imports of articles like or directly competitive with color additives and inks have not increased in 2011, 2012 or during the period of January through September 2013. With respect to Section 222(a)(2)(B) of the Act, the investigation revealed that the firm has not shifted the production of articles like or directly competitive with color additives and inks to a foreign country or acquired like or directly competitive articles from a foreign country. Rather, the investigation confirmed that production is being shifted from the Donora, Pennsylvania facility to other facilities within the United States. With respect to Section 222(b)(2) of the Act, the investigation revealed that the firm is not a Supplier or Downstream Producer to a firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4499 Finally, the group eligibility requirements under Section 222(e) of the Act have not been satisfied because the workers’ firm has not been publicly identified by name by the International Trade Commission as a member of a domestic industry in an investigation resulting in an affirmative finding of serious injury, market disruption, or material injury, or threat thereof. The request for reconsideration alleges that there is ‘‘additional evidence of the anticipated shift/transfer of equipment and operations to a foreign country’’. The request for reconsideration also alleges that production has shifted to Mexico and China. The request for reconsideration also includes additional attachments, including documentation of products that are allegedly produced in Mexico. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record, and will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted. Signed at Washington, DC, this 10th day of January, 2014. Michael W. Jaffe, Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
