SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: VETS is publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, proposing regulations implementing the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act of 2017 or Act). The HIRE Vets Act of 2017 requires VETS to annually solicit and accept voluntary information from employers for consideration of employers to receive a HIRE Vets Medallion Award. The Act establishes specific criteria at two levels (gold and ‘‘platinum) for large employers (those with 500 or more employees) and allows VETS discretion in establishing criteria for small and medium employers to qualify for similar awards. The NPRM proposes the application process and criteria that VETS intends to use to receive, review, and process applications, and to verify the applicant’s information. The public has 30 days to comment on the NPRM. This Notice allows the public sixty days, as required by PRA, to comment on the collections of information in or associated with implementing the proposed rule. Desired Focus of Comments: VETS is soliciting comments concerning the proposed approved information collection request. VETS 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 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 submissions of responses. Proposed Collection of Information Requirements: The NPRM proposes the application process and criteria that VETS intends to use to receive, review, and process applications, verify the information provided and award the HIRE Vets Medallion Award to those employers meeting the criteria and deserving of the award. VETS developed the HIRE Vets application Forms [VETS–1011LP, VETS–1011LG, VETS– 1011MP, VETS–1011MG, VETS– 1011SP, VETS–1011SG] for employers to complete and submit to VETS to fulfill the regulatory requirements to receive an award. The proposed rule provides specific award criteria for the large, medium, and small sized employers to qualify for the gold and platinum awards. Although the number of criteria an employer is required to satisfy in the proposed rule differs by award, the large employer criteria established by statute are generally incorporated across the large employer, medium employer, and small employer awards. The Application(s) would require employers to provide information to meet award criteria dependent upon the size of the employer and the award the employer is requesting, gold or platinum. The following table provides the corresponding regulatory citation.

Also, employers are required to maintain information relied upon to complete the application for two years after the application is submitted to VETS (Subpart G § 1011.600). Finally, the Act establishes a fund, designated as the ‘‘HIRE Vets Medallion Award Fund’’ and requires VETS to assess a reasonable fee from the applicants to cover the costs associated with carrying out the HIRE Vets VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Aug 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 Medallion program. The NPRM provides the fee amount and how to submit the fee.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

    Background: VETS is publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 

(NPRM), elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, proposing 

regulations implementing the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and 

Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017 (HIRE Vets Act of 2017 

or Act). The HIRE Vets Act of 2017 requires VETS to annually solicit 

and accept voluntary information from employers for consideration of 

employers to receive a HIRE Vets Medallion Award. The Act establishes 

specific criteria at two levels (gold and ``platinum) for large 

employers (those with 500 or more employees) and allows VETS discretion 

in establishing criteria for small and medium employers to qualify for 

similar awards. The NPRM proposes the application process and criteria 

that VETS intends to use to receive, review, and process applications, 

and to verify the applicant's information. The public has 30 days to 

comment on the NPRM.

    This Notice allows the public sixty days, as required by PRA, to 

comment on the collections of information in or associated with 

implementing the proposed rule.

    Desired Focus of Comments: VETS is soliciting comments concerning 

the proposed approved information collection request. VETS 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 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 submissions of responses.

    Proposed Collection of Information Requirements: The NPRM proposes 

the application process and criteria that VETS intends to use to 

receive, review, and process applications, verify the information 

provided and award the HIRE Vets Medallion Award to those employers 

meeting the criteria and deserving of the award. VETS developed the 

HIRE Vets application Forms [VETS-1011LP, VETS-1011LG, VETS-1011MP, 

VETS-1011MG, VETS-1011SP, VETS-1011SG] for employers to complete and 

submit to VETS to fulfill the regulatory requirements to receive an 

award.

    The proposed rule provides specific award criteria for the large, 

medium, and small sized employers to qualify for the gold and platinum 

awards. Although the number of criteria an employer is required to 

satisfy in the proposed rule differs by award, the large employer 

criteria established by statute are generally incorporated across the 

large employer, medium employer, and small employer awards. The 

Application(s) would require employers to provide information to meet 

award criteria dependent upon the size of the employer and the award 

the employer is requesting, gold or platinum. The following table 

provides the corresponding regulatory citation.



                      Proposed Regulatory Provision

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



    The proposal also requires employers to supply additional 

information to VETS in support of the application for the HIRE Vets 

Medallion Award (Sec.  1011.215 (b)), or any time VETS becomes aware of 

facts that indicate that the information provided by an employer in its 

application was incorrect or that the employer does not satisfy the 

requirements at Sec.  1011.120 (Sec.  1011.225). Also, employers are 

required to maintain information relied upon to complete the 

application for two years after the application is submitted to VETS 

(Subpart G Sec.  1011.600). Finally, the Act establishes a fund, 

designated as the ``HIRE Vets Medallion Award Fund'' and requires VETS 

to assess a reasonable fee from the applicants to cover the costs 

associated with carrying out the HIRE Vets Medallion program. The NPRM 

provides the fee amount and how to submit the fee.

    Current Actions: This notice invites public comments on the 

information collections contained in or associated with implementing 

the HIRE Vets proposed rule. Comments must be written to receive 

consideration, and they will be summarized and included in a future 

request for OMB approval of the of this information collection. 

Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record and posted on 

the Internet, without redaction. VETS encourages commenters not to 

include personally identifiable information, confidential business 

data, or other sensitive statements/information in any comments.
