The part 61–300 regulations require contractors to use the Federal Contractor Veterans’ Employment Report VETS–100A (VETS–100A Report) to provide information on veterans’ employment. The Final Rule revises the manner in which Federal contractors report on their employment of protected veterans and renames the annual report required under the part 61–300 regulations the Federal Contractor Veterans’ Employment Report VETS–4212 (VETS–4212). The new VETS–4212 Report reflects the new regulatory requirements. Contractors and subcontractors will have to comply with the reporting requirements in the Final Rule and use the VETS–4212 Report beginning with the annual report filed in 2015. Consequently, the ICR maintains the existing VETS–100A Report during the transition period. The DOL will submit a request to discontinue the VETS–100A Report once contractors begin using the new VETS–4212 Report. The VEVRAA authorizes this information collection. See 38 U.S.C. 4212. 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 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 1293–0005. The current approval is scheduled to expire on September 30, 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 the subject information collection requirements, see the related Final Rule published elsewhere in today’s issue of the Federal Register. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Sep 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 1293–0005. 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.
