SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Employment and Training Administration (ETA) regulations at 20 CFR 
651, 653, and 658 under the Wagner-Peyser Act, as amended by the 1998 
Workforce Investment Act (WIA), set forth the requirements to ensure 
that Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers (MSFWs) receive services that are 
qualitatively equivalent and quantitatively proportionate to the 
services provided to non-MSFWs. The Workforce Innovation and 
Opportunity Act, enacted July 22, 2014, supersedes WIA and becomes 
effective July 1, 2015. Therefore this information collection may be 
adjusted in the future, through a formal public comment process.
    Quarterly MSFW reporting is required by 20 CFR 653.108 (q), which 
mandates State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) to review their performance on 
a quarterly basis to ensure compliance with CFR 653.100. The data 
collected represents the minimum information necessary to assure SWA 
compliance with federal regulations. (See 20 CFR 653.100 through 
653.113).
    The regulations at 20 CFR 658.400 through 658.418 ensure that SWAs 
handle complaints appropriately and uniformly. The One-Stop Career 
Center (OSCC) Complaint/Referral Record, ETA 8429 is required to be 
used by SWAs to process complaints pursuant to 20 CFR 658.413. (See 20 
CFR 658.400 through 658.418)

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.
