Background Job Corps is the nation’s largest residential, educational, and career technical training program for at-risk youth. Job Corps was established in 1964 by the Economic Opportunity Act and currently is authorized by WIOA. For over 50 years, Job Corps has helped prepare nearly 2.9 million at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24 for success in our nation’s workforce. With 126 centers in 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, Job Corps assists students across the nation in attaining academic credentials, including a High School Diploma (HSD) and/or High School Equivalency (HSE) attainment, and career technical training credentials, including industryrecognized certifications, state Required activity licensures, and pre-apprenticeship credentials. Job Corps is a national program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (Department) through the National Office of Job Corps and six Regional Offices. The Department awards and administers contracts for the recruiting and screening of new students, center operations, and the placement and transitional support of graduates and former enrollees. Large and small corporations and nonprofit organizations manage and operate 99 Job Corps centers under contractual agreements with the Department. These contract center operators are selected through a competitive procurement process that evaluates potential operators’ technical expertise, proposed costs, past performance, and other factors, in accordance with WIOA, the Competition in Contracting Act and the Federal Acquisition Regulations. The remaining 27 Job Corps centers, called Civilian Conservation Centers, are operated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture—Forest Service, via an interagency agreement. 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 respond, including through 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 The operation of the Job Corps program is such that many activities required of contractors must be coordinated with other organizations, both Federal and non-federal.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Job Corps is the nation's largest residential, educational, and 
career technical training program for at-risk youth. Job Corps was 
established in 1964 by the Economic Opportunity Act and currently is 
authorized by WIOA. For over 50 years, Job Corps has helped prepare 
nearly 2.9 million at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24 for 
success in our nation's workforce. With 126 centers in 50 states, 
Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, Job Corps assists students 
across the nation in attaining academic credentials, including a High 
School Diploma (HSD) and/or High School Equivalency (HSE) attainment, 
and career technical training credentials, including industry-
recognized certifications, state licensures, and pre-apprenticeship 
credentials.
    Job Corps is a national program administered by the U.S. Department 
of Labor (Department) through the National Office of Job Corps and six 
Regional Offices. The Department awards and administers contracts for 
the recruiting and screening of new students, center operations, and 
the placement and transitional support of graduates and former 
enrollees. Large and small corporations and nonprofit organizations 
manage and operate 99 Job Corps centers under contractual agreements 
with the Department. These contract center operators are selected 
through a competitive procurement process that evaluates potential 
operators' technical expertise, proposed costs, past performance, and 
other factors, in accordance with WIOA, the Competition in Contracting 
Act and the Federal Acquisition Regulations. The remaining 27 Job Corps 
centers, called Civilian Conservation Centers, are operated by the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture--Forest Service, via an interagency 
agreement.

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 respond, including through 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

    The operation of the Job Corps program is such that many activities 
required of contractors must be coordinated with other organizations, 
both Federal and non-federal. Most of the information collection 
requirements of Job Corps center operators stem directly from 
operational needs or are necessary to ensure compliance with Federal 
requirements and the terms of the contract.
    Job Corps contractors and operators are required to provide 
information which is used for, among other things, the generation of 
statistical reports by Federal Job Corps staff rather than the 
contractors. Reports are generated from data that is entered directly 
by contractors. Examples of this data includes ETA Forms 2110 (Center 
Financial Report), 2181 & 2181A (Center Operations Budget), 6-131A 
(Disciplinary Discharge), 6-131B (Review Board Hearings), 6-131C 
(Rights to Appeal), 6-40 (Student Profile), 6-61 (Notice of 
Termination) and 3-38 (Property Inventory Transcription.)
    In addition, several forms pertain to student and facility 
administrative matters and are provided in Portable Data File (PDF) 
format. These forms include the OJC 6-37 (Inspection Residential & 
Educational Facilities), OJC 6-38 (Inspection Water Supply Facilities), 
and OJC 6-39 (Inspection of Waste Treatment Facilities).
    Finally, the following are documents that center operators and 
other contractors are required to create, complete, or maintain 
according to the Job Corps Policy Requirements Handbook (PRH): Center 
Operations Plan, Center Maintenance Program, Annual Career Technical 
Skills Training (CTST), Annual Staff Training, Energy Conservation, 
Outreach/Public Education Plan, Health and Wellness Center Annual 
Program Description, Health Services Utilization Report, Alcohol 
Testing Report and Immunization Record.
    Type of Review: Extension with minor changes.
    Title: Standard Job Corps Contractor Information Gathering.
    OMB Number: 1205-0219.
    Affected Public: Businesses, for profit and not-for-profit 
institutions, and Tribal governments.
    Recordkeeping: Data collection for the Center Financial and the 
Center Operations Budget Reports is made at least quarterly, and is 
essential to ensure contractor financial compliance with contractual 
requirements and to enable effective oversight of the program. The 
total burden associated with these activities is 4,536 hours.

    Center staff members enter data utilizing a personal computer that 
transmits the data electronically to a centralized database. Many 
management and performance reports are created from this database.
    Certain student personnel requirements such as student payroll 
information, student training and education courses received, student 
leave, disciplinary actions and medical information are also collected 
in an electronic information system. The initial data entry is 
maintained in the national database and used for multiple reporting 
purposes, therefore reducing the need to enter the data more than once. 
The total burden associated with the input of data is 36,145 hours.
