SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) requires states to 
submit either a ``standalone'' strategic plan for title I of the 
Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and the Wagner-Peyser Act (WIA Section 
112) or a Unified Plan with partner programs (WIA Section 501). The 
State may also submit requests for waivers and work-flex as parts of 
the Strategic State Plan. These State Plan requirements are titled 
``State Integrated Workforce Plan Requirements for Workforce Investment 
Act/Wagner-Peyser Act and Department of Labor Workforce Programs,'' and 
``Planning Guidance for State Unified Plans and Unified Plan 
Modifications Submitted under Section 501 of the Workforce Investment 
Act (WIA).'' The Planning Guidance and Instructions provide a framework 
for the collaboration of governors, local elected officials, businesses 
and other partners to continue the development of workforce investment 
systems that address customer needs, deliver integrated user-friendly 
services, and are accountable to the customers and the public.
    Sections 102 and 103 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity 
Act (WIOA), (H.R. 803, July 22, 2014) include similar provisions for 
States to submit State Plans. Many of WIOA's provisions take effect on 
July 1, 2015, but the existing WIA state and local plan provisions 
remain in effect until July 1, 2016. The Employment and Training 
Administration (ETA) is conducting a review of WIOA's implementation 
timeline and State Plan provisions, and may amend this information 
collection as part of its implementation actions.
    This information collection is submitted under the legal 
requirements of WIA, the law in effect at this time.

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.

III. Current Actions

    Type of Review: Extension without revisions.
    Title: Planning Guidance and Instructions for Submission of the 
Strategic State Plan for Title I of the Workforce Investment Act of
