Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). BILLING CODE 4510–79–P This ICR seeks PRA authority for the Institutional Analysis of American Job Centers (AJCs) Study information collection. The DOL, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy is sponsoring a comprehensive study to better understand the spectrum of institutional features that shape AJC day-to-day operations and customer experiences in order systematically to document key institutional characteristics of AJCs; present a comprehensive description of AJC funding, organization, administration and management, and service delivery structures and processes; and develop typologies of AJCs that capture the institutional variations documented. To achieve these goals, an in-depth institutional analysis will be conducted that documents AJC operations across 10 research domains: (1) Administrative structure; (2) partnerships; (3) performance and strategic management; (4) staffing; (5) physical environment; (6) Management Information System capacity and the use of technology— including electronic tools and resources; (7) service delivery structure and linkages; (8) the program and service mix provided; (9) outreach; and (10) funding. In addition, the study will consider external factors that are particularly important for understanding AJC structure, operations, policies, and processes. These include LWIBs and state-level workforce agencies that have administrative and oversight responsibilities over AJCs. This ICR seeks clearance for (1) site visits to AJCs; (2) telephone interviews with state workforce administrators in states where site visits are conducted; and (3) a network analysis survey of selected study AJC partner organizations. To select AJCs for site visits, the study team will employ a two-stage sampling approach that will yield a purposive sample of AJCs. This approach aims to capture geographic diversity and variation in the types of administrative entities that operate AJCs. In the first stage of site selection, the study team will randomly select 80 comprehensive AJCs. In the second stage, the study team will select AJCs using purposive sampling based on variation in the types of administrative entities that manage AJC operations, geographic location, and urbanity.
