SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In applying for the Enhanced Transitional Jobs Demonstration 
grants, grantees agreed to submit participant data and quarterly 
aggregate reports for individuals who receive services through ETJD 
programs and their partnerships with American Job Centers, local 
workforce investment boards, employment providers, the criminal justice 
system, and child support enforcement agencies, among others. The 
reports include aggregate data on demographic characteristics, types of 
services received, placements, outcomes, and follow-up status. 
Specifically, they summarize data on participants who received 
subsidized employment and training, placement services, child support 
assistance and family reunification services, mentoring, and other 
services essential to successful unsubsidized employment of ex-offender 
and non-custodial parent participants through ETJD programs.
    This requests an extension (without changes) for an existing 
information collection to meet the reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements of the Enhanced Transitional Jobs Demonstration through an 
ETA-provided, Web-based Management Information System (MIS). In 
addition to reporting participant information and performance-related 
outcomes, ETJD grantees will be part of an extensive random assignment 
evaluation to test the effectiveness of a transitional jobs ``bump-up'' 
model that provides an enhanced approach to the traditional 
transitional jobs model, in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of 
transitional jobs in serving specific hard-to-employ populations.
    This information collection maintains a reporting and record-
keeping system for a minimum level of information collection that is 
necessary to hold ETJD grantees appropriately accountable for the 
Federal funds they receive, including common performance measures, and 
to allow the Department to fulfill its oversight and management 
responsibilities.

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.
