The statute requires, at 5 U.S.C. sec. 504(a)(2), that a party seeking an award of fees and other expenses in a covered administrative proceeding must submit to the agency an application which shows that the party is the prevailing party and is eligible to receive an award under the Act. DOL regulations implementing the Equal Access to Justice Act contain a subpart specifying the contents of applications for an award, 29 CFR part 16, subpart B. The DOL is currently proposing no changes to the information collection requirements. II. Desired Focus of Comments: The DOL, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3505(c)(2)(A)). The program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of the collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The DOL 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 E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1
