    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Davis-Bacon Certified Payroll information collection. The Copeland 
Act requires contractors and subcontractors performing work on 
federally financed or assisted construction contracts to furnish weekly 
a statement with respect to the wages paid each employee during the 
preceding week. See 40 U.S.C. 3145(a); 29 CFR 3.3(b). Regulations 29 
CFR 5.5 (a)(3)(ii)(A) requires contractors to submit weekly a copy of 
all payrolls to the Federal agency contracting for or financing the 
construction project, if the agency is a party to the contract, 
accompanied by a signed Statement of Compliance indicating that the 
payrolls are correct and complete and that each laborer or mechanic has 
been paid not less than the proper Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rate for 
the work performed. See 29 CFR 5.5(a)(3)(ii)(B). The DOL has developed 
optional use Form WH-347, Payroll Form, to aide contractors and 
subcontractors performing work on federally financed or assisted 
construction contracts in meeting weekly payroll reporting 
requirements. See 29 CFR 5.5(a)(3)(ii)(A); see also, 29 CFR 3.3(b). 
Properly filled out, this form will satisfy the requirements of 
Regulations 29 CFR parts 3 and 5 as to payrolls submitted in connection 
with contracts subject to the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. Copeland 
Act section 2 authorizes this information collection. See 40 U.S.C. 
3145(a).
    Consistent with the development of additional tools to increase 
transparency in the accounting of information collection burdens across 
Federal agencies, the DOL seeks for the Davis-Bacon Certified Payroll 
to be designated a common form that may be used by all Federal 
agencies. This designation will not change the collection, except that 
the burdens associated with the ICR would be apportioned to each 
contracting agency, in accordance with its use of certified payrolls, 
instead of all burdens being allocated to the DOL.
    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 1235-0008.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on January 31, 2015. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on June 9, 2014 (79 FR 33001).
    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 1235-0008. 
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,
