Notice of a Public Meeting of the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship (ACA), 61100-61101 [2014-24083]

Download as PDF 61100 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 196 / Thursday, October 9, 2014 / Notices addition, as the referenced report, Senate Report 112–176, was a report on proposed but never enacted legislation we disagree that it provides evidence of Congress’ intent on this matter. The same commenter expressed their opinion that Treasure Lake has not been on its Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) for sufficient time to make performance improvement. OJC disagrees that additional time and resources will lead to improved performance. Despite having been on a PIP and having received assistance for at least the past two years, Treasure Lake’s performance has dramatically decreased. Between PY 2011 and PY 2013, Treasure Lake’s OMS score has decreased more than 18 percentage points, from 94.5% to 76%. To OJC, this performance decline indicates that additional resources should not be expended to attempt to improve performance. Balanced against the lost opportunity for current and future students to attend a higher performing center, OJC believes that closing Treasure Lake achieves the best outcome for the program. Several commenters generally expressed their opinion, based on their experience at the center, the opportunities that the center provides for troubled youth, and the impact that the center has on the broader community, that Job Corps should not close Treasure Lake. The core mission of Job Corps is to train students to become more employable, responsible, and productive citizens, and we believe that we will advance this mission by closing Treasure Lake and enhancing opportunities for current and future students at higher performing centers. Finally, one comment was received that is outside the scope of the requested response, and was therefore not considered. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Job Corps Center Selected for Closure and the Closure Process Based on its application of the closure methodology as described in the August 27, 2014, Federal Register Notice and OJC’s consideration of the comments received in response to the August 27, 2014, Federal Register Notice, OJC has decided to close the Treasure Lake Job Corps Center. OJC will implement the closure process following the center closure requirements in WIA section 159(g) and other applicable requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accord with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The VTL Standard for Marine Terminals (29 CFR part 1917) specifies the following collection of information requirements. The purpose of each of these requirements is to provide E:\FR\FM\09OCN1.SGM 09OCN1
