Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Workforce Innovation Fund (WIF) Grants Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements information collection. It features quarterly performance narrative reports that document grantees’ innovative strategies and effective practices and lessons learned from the diverse WIF projects. All data collection and reporting is done by grantee organizations. The performance reporting requirements align with outcome categories identified in the Solicitation for Grant Applications used to award the WIF grants. The quarterly performance narrative reports provide a detailed account of program activities, accomplishments, and progress toward performance outcomes during the quarter. Specifically, these reports include aggregate information on participants’ grant progress and accomplishments, grant challenges, grant technical assistance needs and success stories and lessons learned. The performance outcomes are defined by each grantee. Each grant has a unique set of performance goals and outcome measures according to the specific innovation and project being pursued in the grant. The performance narrative reports, to be completed quarterly, include a narrative of grant activities and the unique grant performance and evaluation measures and key project milestones identified by the grantees. As a result, the specific performance asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:27 May 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 measures for each grant may be different. 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 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 1205–0515. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2017. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on December 23, 2016 (81 FR 94422). 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 1205–0515. 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, PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21431 e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Publication Procedures for Federal Register Documents During a 
Funding Hiatus

AGENCY: Office of the Federal Register.

ACTION: Notice of special procedures.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In the event of an appropriations lapse, the Office of the 
Federal Register (OFR) would be required to publish documents directly 
related to the performance of governmental functions necessary to 
address imminent threats to the safety of human life or protection of 
property. Since it would be impracticable for the OFR to make case-by-
case determinations as to whether certain documents are directly 
related to activities that qualify for an exemption under the 
Antideficiency Act, the OFR will place responsibility on agencies 
submitting documents to certify that their documents relate to 
emergency activities authorized under the Act.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Bunk, Director of Legal Affairs 
and Policy, or Miriam Vincent, Staff Attorney, Office of the Federal 
Register, National Archives and Records Administration, (202) 741-6030 
or Fedreg.legal@nara.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Due to the possibility of a lapse in 
appropriations and in accordance with the provisions of the 
Antideficiency Act, as amended by Public Law 101-508, 104 Stat. 1388 
(31 U.S.C. 1341), the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) announces 
special procedures for agencies submitting documents for publication in 
the Federal Register.

    In the event of an appropriations lapse, the OFR would be required 
to publish documents directly related to the performance of 
governmental functions necessary to address imminent threats to the 
safety of human life or protection of property. Since it would be 
impracticable for the OFR to make case-by-case determinations as to 
whether certain documents are directly related to activities that 
qualify for an exemption under the Antideficiency Act, the OFR will 
place responsibility on agencies submitting documents to certify that 
their documents relate to emergency activities authorized under the 
Act.
    During a funding hiatus affecting one or more Federal agencies, the 
OFR will remain open to accept and process documents authorized to be 
published in the daily Federal Register in the absence of continuing 
appropriations. An agency wishing to submit a document to the OFR 
during a funding hiatus must attach a transmittal letter to the 
document which states that publication in the Federal Register is 
necessary to safeguard human life, protect property, or provide other 
emergency services consistent with the performance of functions and 
services exempted under the Antideficiency Act.
    Under the August 16, 1995 opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel of 
the Department of Justice, exempt functions and services would include 
activities such as those related to the constitutional duties of the 
President, food and drug inspection, air traffic control, responses to 
natural or manmade disasters, law enforcement and supervision of 
financial markets. Documents related to normal or routine activities of 
Federal agencies, even if funded under prior year appropriations, will 
not be published.
    At the onset of a funding hiatus, the OFR may suspend the regular 
three-day publication schedule to permit a limited number of exempt 
personnel to process emergency documents. Agency officials will be 
informed as to the schedule for filing and publishing individual 
documents.
