Guam Military Base Realignment Contractor Recruitment Standards-Revised, 78770-78772 [2015-31713]

Download as PDF 78770 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 242 / Thursday, December 17, 2015 / Notices public service to the users of the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), in an effort to help them in obtaining occupational codes and titles for jobs that they are unable to locate in O*NET. The O*NET system classifies nearly all jobs in the United States economy. However, new occupational specialties are continually evolving and emerging. The use of the OCA is voluntary and is provided: (1) As a uniform format to the public and private sector to submit information in order to receive assistance in identifying an occupational code; (2) to assist the O*NET system in identifying potential occupations that may need to be included in future O*NET data collection efforts; and (3) to provide input to a database of alternative (lay) titles to facilitate searches for occupational information on the O*NET Web sites including O*NET OnLine (http://online.onetcenter.org), My Next Move (www.MyNextMove.gov), My Next Move for Veterans (www.MyNextMove.org/vets), O*NET Code Connector (www.onetcodeconnector.org), as well as CareerOneStop (www.careeronestop.org). Minor changes were made to the previous form to remove two questions that were not needed and minor wording changes to clarify existing questions. The OCA process is designed to help the occupational information user relate an occupational specialty or a job title to an occupational code and title within the framework of the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) based O*NET system. The O*NET–SOC system consists of a database that organizes the work done by individuals into approximately 1,000 occupational categories. Additionally, O*NET occupations have associated data on the importance and level of a range of occupational characteristics and requirements, including knowledge, skills, abilities, tasks and work activities. Since the O*NET–SOC system is based on the SOC system, identifying an O*NET–SOC code and title also facilitates linkage to national, state, and local occupational employment and wage estimates. 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. III. Current Actions Type of Review: extension with changes. Title: Occupational Code Assignment. OMB Number: 1205–0137.

This provision prohibits contractors engaged in construction projects related to the realignment of U.S. military forces from Okinawa to Guam from hiring workers holding H– 2B visas under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b), unless the Governor of Guam (Governor), in consultation with the Secretary of Labor (Secretary), certifies that: (1) There is an insufficient number of U.S. workers that are able, willing, qualified, and available to perform the work; and (2) the employment of workers holding H–2B visas will not have an adverse effect on either the wages or the working conditions of workers in Guam.

of the Military Construction Authorization Act (division B of Public 
Law 110-417;

[[Page 78771]]

10 U.S.C. 2687 note) by adding a new subsection (6). This provision 
prohibits contractors engaged in construction projects related to the 
realignment of U.S. military forces from Okinawa to Guam from hiring 
workers holding H-2B visas under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 
U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b), unless the Governor of Guam (Governor), 
in consultation with the Secretary of Labor (Secretary), certifies 
that:
    (1) There is an insufficient number of U.S. workers that are able, 
willing, qualified, and available to perform the work; and
    (2) the employment of workers holding H-2B visas will not have an 
adverse effect on either the wages or the working conditions of workers 
in Guam.
    In order to allow the Governor to make this certification, NDAA 
requires contractors to recruit workers in the U.S., including in Guam, 
the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the 
U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, according to the terms of a 
recruitment plan developed and approved by the Secretary. That 
recruitment plan is reproduced in full in Section I below (``Contractor 
Recruitment Instructions'').
    The Department developed the Contractor Recruitment Instructions in 
full consultation with, and with the approval of, the Guam Department 
of Labor (GDOL). Although the Department developed the recruitment 
standards, it has assigned oversight of the Contractor Recruitment 
Standards and the NDAA-required consultation with the Governor to GDOL 
through a Memorandum of Understanding between the Department and GDOL, 
effective November 22, 2011, (the MOU can be found on the 
www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain Web site).
    Under NDAA, no Guam base realignment construction project work may 
be performed by a person holding an H-2B visa under the Immigration and 
Nationality Act until the contractor complies with the Department's 
Contractor Recruitment Standards, and the Governor of Guam issues the 
certification noted above.
