ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments. AGENCY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and the destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). DATES: Requests for copies must be received in writing on or before May 4, 2015. Once the appraisal of the records is completed, NARA will send a copy of the schedule. NARA staff usually prepare appraisal memorandums that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. These, too, may be requested and will be provided once the appraisal is completed. Requesters will be given 30 days to submit comments. ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting Records Management Services (ACNR) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (ACNR), 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740–6001. Email: request.schedule@nara.gov. FAX: 301–837–3698. Requesters must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses after the name of the agency which submitted the schedule, and must provide a mailing address. Those who desire appraisal reports should so indicate in their request. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Margaret Hawkins, Director, Records Management Services (ACNR), National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740–6001. Telephone: 301–837–1799. Email: request.schedule@nara.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. These schedules provide for the timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 authorize the disposal of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless specified otherwise. An item in a schedule is media neutral when the disposition instructions may be applied to records regardless of the medium in which the records are created and maintained. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media neutral unless the item is limited to a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) No Federal records are authorized for destruction without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. This approval is granted only after a thorough consideration of their administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private persons directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not they have historical or other value. Besides identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this public notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or indicates agency-wide applicability in the case of schedules that cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency. This notice provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction). It also includes a brief description of the E:\FR\FM\02APN1.SGM 02APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In applying for the Reintegration of Ex-Offender-Adult grants, 
applicants agree to submit participant data and quarterly aggregate 
reports for individuals who receive services through RExO-Adult 
programs and their partnerships with American Job Centers, local 
Workforce Investment Boards, employment providers, the criminal justice 
system, and local housing authorities. The reports include aggregate 
data on demographic characteristics, types of services received, 
placements, outcomes, and follow-up status. Specifically, they 
summarize data on participants who received employment and placement 
services, housing assistance, mentoring, and other services essential 
to reintegrating ex-offenders through RExO-Adult programs.
    The Department requests an extension of the currently approved 
information collection to meet the reporting and record-keeping 
requirements of the Reintegration of Ex-Offenders-Adult grants through 
an ETA-provided, Web-based Management Information System (MIS). In 
addition to reporting participant information and performance-related 
outcomes, RExO-Adult grantees demonstrate their ability to establish 
effective partnerships with the criminal justice system, local 
Workforce Investment Boards, local housing authorities, and other 
partner agencies. They also document the cost effectiveness of their 
projects. The MIS reporting and record-keeping system incorporates each 
of these aspects necessary for program evaluation.
    This information collection maintains a reporting and record-
keeping system for a minimum level of information collection that is 
necessary to comply with Equal Opportunity requirements, to hold RExO-
Adult grantees appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they 
receive, including common performance measures, and to allow the 
Department to fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities.

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;
     Valuate 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.
