Abstract The Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs is seeking revisions for the information collection conducted under OMB Control Number 1076–0135, Reporting System for Public Law 102– 477 Demonstration Project. This information allows the Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development (IEED), which reports to the Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs, to document satisfactory compliance with statutory, regulatory, and other requirements of the various integrated programs. Public Law 102–477 authorized tribal governments to integrate federally funded employment, training, and related services and programs into a single, coordinated, comprehensive service delivery plan. Funding agencies include the Department of Labor, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Indian Affairs is statutorily required to serve as the lead agency and provides a single, universal report format for use by tribal governments to report on integrated activities and expenditures. The IEED shares the information collected from these reports with the Department of Labor and the Department of Health and Human Services. There are currently four information collections associated with this OMB Control Number: IA 7701—Narrative Report, IA 7702—Statistical Report, IA 7703—Financial Report, and IA 7703A—Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Financial Report. These forms are included in this VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:14 Sep 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 request and will continue to be authorized for use until 2017. The revision reduces the number of forms to two: Statistical Report and Financial Expenditure Report. The previous TANF Financial Report and Financial Report have been combined to create the Financial Expenditure Report, allowing tribes to complete and submit the information on one form. Revisions were made to the Narrative Report and Statistical Report to provide clear instructions and guidance. In addition, a new guidance document, ‘‘Function Cost Categories,’’ has been added for reference. The new reporting forms (Version 2) will replace the currently approved forms (Version 1) after 2017. To the extent possible, tribes should begin using the new reporting forms (Version 2) as they enter new contracts, but in no case later than the 2017 expiration date. Until then, the BIA will continue to accept either version of the forms to ensure a smooth transition in reporting and to allow time for training and technical assistance. II. Request for Comments The Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs requests your comments on this collection concerning: (a) The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents. Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB Control Number. It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs is seeking revisions for 
the information collection conducted under OMB Control Number 1076-
0135, Reporting System for Public Law 102-477 Demonstration Project. 
This information allows the Office of Indian Energy and Economic 
Development (IEED), which reports to the Assistant Secretary--Indian 
Affairs, to document satisfactory compliance with statutory, 
regulatory, and other requirements of the various integrated programs. 
Public Law 102-477 authorized tribal governments to integrate federally 
funded employment, training, and related services and programs into a 
single, coordinated, comprehensive service delivery plan. Funding 
agencies include the Department of Labor, and the Department of Health 
and Human Services. Indian Affairs is statutorily required to serve as 
the lead agency and provides a single, universal report format for use 
by tribal governments to report on integrated activities and 
expenditures. The IEED shares the information collected from these 
reports with the Department of Labor and the Department of Health and 
Human Services.
    There are currently four information collections associated with 
this OMB Control Number: IA 7701--Narrative Report, IA 7702--
Statistical Report, IA 7703--Financial Report, and IA 7703A--Tribal 
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Financial Report. These 
forms are included in this request and will continue to be authorized 
for use until 2017.
    The revision reduces the number of forms to two: Statistical Report 
and Financial Expenditure Report. The previous TANF Financial Report 
and Financial Report have been combined to create the Financial 
Expenditure Report, allowing tribes to complete and submit the 
information on one form. Revisions were made to the Narrative Report 
and Statistical Report to provide clear instructions and guidance. In 
addition, a new guidance document, ``Function Cost Categories,'' has 
been added for reference.
    The new reporting forms (Version 2) will replace the currently 
approved forms (Version 1) after 2017. To the extent possible, tribes 
should begin using the new reporting forms (Version 2) as they enter 
new contracts, but in no case later than the 2017 expiration date. 
Until then, the BIA will continue to accept either version of the forms 
to ensure a smooth transition in reporting and to allow time for 
training and technical assistance.

II. Request for Comments

    The Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs requests your comments on 
this collection concerning: (a) The necessity of this information 
collection for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The 
accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways we could 
minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the 
respondents.
    Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB Control Number.
    It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before 
including your address, phone number, email address or other personal 
identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your 
entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 
comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public 
review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

response to the 60-day comment period published in the Federal Register 
on February 14, 2014 (79 CFR 8985). The comments included questions and
