Review Focus DEPARTMENT OF LABOR 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 submission of responses. Employment and Training Administration I. Background Since 1987, states have been required by regulation at 20 CFR part 602 to operate a program to assess their Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax and benefit programs. TPS is designed to assess the major internal UI tax functions by utilizing several methodologies: Computed Measures, which are indicators of timeliness and completeness based on data automatically generated via the existing ETA 581, Contribution Operations Report (Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval number 1205– 0178, expiring 02/28/2015, and currently under review for extension at OMB); and Program Reviews, which assess accuracy through a two-fold examination. This examination involves: (a) ‘‘Systems Reviews’’ which examine tax systems for the existence of internal controls; and (b) extraction of small samples of those systems’ transactions which are then examined to verify the effectiveness of controls. Type of Review: Extension without change. Title: Tax Performance System. OMB Number: 1205–0332. Affected Public: State Workforce Agencies. Estimated Total Annual Respondents: 52. Estimated Total Annual Responses:: 1739 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 90,428. Total Estimated Annual Other Cost Burden: $4,543,637. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of the ICR; they will also become a matter of public record. III.
