    The ETA 9016 report is used by the Department to assess whether 
(and the extent to which) the requirements of the U.S. Citizenship and 
Immigration Services (USCIS), Systematic Alien Verification for 
Entitlement (SAVE) system are cost-effective and otherwise appropriate 
for the UI program. In addition, data from the Alien Claims Activity 
report is being used to assist the Secretary of Labor in determining 
whether a SWA's administrative costs associated with the verification 
program are reasonable and reimbursable. There is no other report or 
system available for collecting this required information. The report 
allows the Department of Labor to determine the number of aliens filing 
for UI, the number of benefit issues detected, the denials of benefits 
to aliens, the extent to which State Agencies use the system, and the 
overall effectiveness and cost efficiency of the verification system. 
If SWAs are not required to submit the information on the Alien Claims 
Activity Report, the Department would not be able to fulfill its 
responsibilities to assess the SAVE system.

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
