A State submits quarterly performance data for WagnerPeyser Act funded public labor exchange services through Form-ETA 9002 reports and for Veterans’ Employment and Training Services (VETS)-funded labor exchange services through Form VETS–200 reports. Employment and Training (ET) Handbook No. 406 contains the report forms and provides instructions for completing these reports. ET Handbook No. 406 contains a total of eight reports (Forms ETA 9002–A, B, C, D, E, F and Forms-VETS 200–A, B, C). The various versions of Forms ETA–9002 and VETS–200 reports collect data on individuals who receive core employment and workforce information services through the public labor exchange and VETS-funded labor exchange of the states’ One-Stop delivery systems. Respondents are State governments and grantees and individuals providing information used by a State in preparing reports. Selected standardized information pertaining to customers in Wagner-Peyser Act programs are collected and reported for the purposes of general program oversight, evaluation, and performance assessment. The Wagner-Peyser Act authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 49. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:48 Aug 21, 2015 Jkt 235001 information collection under Control Number 1205–0240. 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 August 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 11, 2015 (80 FR 33292).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Labor Exchange Reporting System information collection. A State 
submits quarterly performance data for Wagner-Peyser Act funded public 
labor exchange services through Form-ETA 9002 reports and for Veterans' 
Employment and Training Services (VETS)-funded labor exchange services 
through Form VETS-200 reports. Employment and Training (ET) Handbook 
No. 406 contains the report forms and provides instructions for 
completing these reports. ET Handbook No. 406 contains a total of eight 
reports (Forms ETA 9002-A, B, C, D, E, F and Forms-VETS 200-A, B, C). 
The various versions of Forms ETA-9002 and VETS-200 reports collect 
data on individuals who receive core employment and workforce 
information services through the public labor exchange and VETS-funded 
labor exchange of the states' One-Stop delivery systems. Respondents 
are State governments and grantees and individuals providing 
information used by a State in preparing reports. Selected standardized 
information pertaining to customers in Wagner-Peyser Act programs are 
collected and reported for the purposes of general program oversight, 
evaluation, and performance assessment. The Wagner-Peyser Act 
authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 49.
    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 1205-0240.
    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 August 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 11, 2015 (80 FR 
33292).
    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 1204-0240. 
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, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
