SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the H-1B Technical Skills Training (TST) and Jobs and 
Innovation Accelerator Challenge (JIAC) Grants information collection. 
In applying for the H-1B TST, JAIC, and Ready to Work grant programs, 
grantees agree to submit participant-level data quarterly for 
individuals who receive services through these programs. The reports 
include aggregate data on demographic characteristics, types of 
services received, placements, outcomes, and follow-up status. 
Specifically, grantees summarize data on employment and training 
services, placement services, and other services essential to 
successful unsubsidized employment through H-1B programs. This 
reporting structure features standardized data collection on program 
participants and quarterly narrative, performance, and Management 
Information System report formats. All data collection and reporting 
will be done by grantee organizations (State or local governments, not-
for-profit, or faith-based and community organizations) or their sub-
grantees. This information collection has been classified as a revision 
because of (1) code value formatting changes; (2) additional technical 
assistance guidance in the Handbook to Performance Reporting; (3) 
reformatting the Handbook to improve its readability; (4) removing 
duplicative data elements listed on Form ETA-9166, Standardized 
Quarterly Progress Report; (5) changes to an evaluation consent form; 
(6) the addition of a baseline information form to support data 
collection; and (7) the removal of information collections related to 
completed site visit activities. American Competitiveness and Workforce 
Improvement Act of 1998 section 414(c) authorizes this information 
collection. See 29 U.S.C. 219(c) note.
    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

[[Page 33554]]

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-
0507. The current approval is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2016; 
however, the DOL notes that existing information collection 
requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension 
while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon 
OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, 
see the related notice published in the Federal Register on February 
23, 2016 (81 FR 8992).
    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 1205-0507. 
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.
