SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) program 
allows for the targeting of reemployment services to those most in need 
of services. The ETA 9048 and ETA 9049 are the only means of tracking 
the activities in the WPRS program. The ETA 9048 report describes flows 
of claimants at various points in the WPRS system from initial 
profiling through the completion of specific reemployment services. The 
ETA 9049 describes the reemployment experience of profiled claimants 
who were referred to services by examining the state's existing wage 
record files to see in which quarter the individuals who received 
reemployment services became employed, what wages they earned, and 
whether they changed industries.

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;
     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 submissions of responses.
