SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Prohibiting Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender 
Identity by Contractors and Subcontractors information collection 
codified in regulations 41 CFR parts 60-1, 60-2, 60-3, 60-4, and 60-50. 
Among other things, these regulations set forth information disclosure 
and reporting requirements for covered Federal contractors, 
subcontractors, and federally assisted construction contractors and 
subcontractors (collectively referred to as contractors). This 
information collection request supports the final rule published 
December 8, 2014, (79 FR 72703) implementing Executive Order 11246, 
Equal Employment Opportunity (published September 28, 1965, 30 FR 
12319) and Executive Order 13672, Further Amendments to Executive Order 
11478, Equal Employment Opportunity in the Federal Government, and 
Executive Order 11246, Equal Employment Opportunity (published July 23, 
2014, 79 FR 42971).
    The final rule sets forth the following information disclosure and 
reporting requirements for covered Federal contractors: (1) Contractors 
must incorporate specific language into the equal opportunity clause 
used in covered subcontracts and purchase orders; (2) contractors are 
expressly to state in solicitations for employees that all qualified 
applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to 
race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or 
national origin; and (3) contractors are to disclose when their 
employees or prospective employees are denied a visa of entry to a 
country in which or with which the contractors are doing business. 
Executive Order 11246, ``Equal Employment Opportunity,'' section 202; 
and Executive Order 13672, ``Further Amendments to Executive Order 
11478, Equal Employment Opportunity in the Federal Government,'' 
section 2 authorize this information collection. See E.O. 11246 section 
202 (published September 28, 1965, 30 FR 12319) and E.O. 13672 section 
2 (published July 23, 2014, 79 FR 42971).
    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 1250-0009.
    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 September 30, 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 
final rule published in the Federal Register on December 8, 2014 (79 FR
