This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Request for Information on Earnings, Dual Benefits, Dependents, and Third-Party Settlements (Form CA– 1032, Form EN–1032) information collection. The OWCP uses this collection to obtain information from a Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) claimant receiving workers’ compensation benefits over an extended period. The OWCP uses the response to determine whether the claimant is entitled to continue receiving benefits and whether the benefit amount should be adjusted. The collection is necessary to ensure the beneficiary receives correct compensation. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because OWCP has made several clarifications to the data collection. The FECA authorizes this information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8124 and 8149. 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 1240–0016. The current approval is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2017; 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 27, 2017 (82 FR 11946). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section by June 30, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Request for Information on Earnings, Dual Benefits, 
Dependents, and Third-Party Settlements (Form CA-1032, Form EN-1032) 
information collection. The OWCP uses this collection to obtain 
information from a Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) claimant 
receiving workers' compensation benefits over an extended period. The 
OWCP uses the response to determine whether the claimant is entitled to 
continue receiving benefits and whether the benefit amount should be 
adjusted. The collection is necessary to ensure the beneficiary 
receives correct compensation. This information collection has been 
classified as a revision, because OWCP has made several clarifications 
to the data collection. The FECA authorizes this information 
collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8124 and 8149.
    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 1240-0016. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on May 31, 2017; 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

     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
