Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Department of Labor Events Registration Platform (DOLEMP), previously identified as the Vendor Outreach Session (VOS) Information Management System, information collection. More specifically, the DOL periodically requests the public to register to attend a DOL sponsored event. The DOLEMP is a shared service that allows a DOL agency to collect registration information in a way that can be tailored to a particular event. As the information needed to register for specific events may vary, this ICR provides a generic format an agency may use to obtain any required PRA authorization from the OMB. The DOL seeks OMB approval not to submit an individual event for approval when only those questions on an approved template are asked. Under the proposed revision, an agency would also have the ability to omit one or more questions on the template without the DOL submitting an ICR for specific clearance. An ICR would be required, however, under this generic information collection should additional or other information be asked for some specific event. For example, this ICR submission includes a generic request for continued approval of the VOS component of the DOLEMP. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of the expanded scope of the information collection to cover additional events. The DOL notes that registration requirements for many events may not require PRA clearance, because the information requested is minimal (e.g., information necessary to identify the attendee, address, etc.); however, other events may require the systematic collection of information that goes beyond the PRA exception to the definition of information codified in regulations 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(1). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:23 Aug 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1290–0002. The current approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2014; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on June 6, 2014 (79 FR 32751). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1290–0002. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • 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 submission of responses.

The petition states ‘‘Plexus has factories in Malaysia, China, Mexico, and Europe.’’ The subject workers are engaged in activities related to the production of printed circuit boards. During the investigation, the Department received information from the subject firm confirming a shift of production by the subject firm of an article like or directly competitive with the printed circuit boards produced by the workers from Neenah, Wisconsin to a foreign country. Based on information obtained during the investigation, the Department determined that Sections 222(a)(1) and 222(a)(2)(B) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a), have been met and issued on April 5, 2013 a certification of eligibility to apply for TAA applicable to workers and former workers of Plexus-Neenah, which states ‘‘the workers’ firm has shifted to a foreign country the production of an article like or directly competitive with the article produced by the workers which contributed importantly’’ to worker separations at Plexus-Neenah. On January 29, 2014, the Department issued an amended certification of eligibility to apply for TAA applicable to leased workers of Aerotek and Gold Star Solutions, Inc. working on-site at Plexus-Neenah. In a July 24, 2014 press release (‘‘Plexus Commitment to Wisconsin’’), Plexus Corporation stated: Dated: August 18, 2014. Michel Smyth, Departmental Clearance Officer. In 2012, Plexus experienced a disruptive event when our largest customer at the time, which represented approximately 16% of Plexus’ global revenue, unexpectedly announced its decision to disengage from Plexus. This customer disengagement represented a significant challenge for the Company and unfortunately resulted in the loss of jobs in Wisconsin. These jobs were not moved to Plexus locations outside the U.S. but instead were lost from Plexus altogether as the result of the customer’s decision to move its programs to our competitors’ locations outside the U.S. While the significant customer disengagement was a challenging event for us, we have regained many of the jobs that were lost in 2012 and 2013 and are back on a path of growth in Neenah, Wisconsin.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for

See 29 U.S.C. 651, 657.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and

collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that

years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on August 31, 2014. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2014 (79 FR 29803).

The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     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
