This ICR has been classified as a revision, because specified data elements, subpopulations, barriers to employment, and reporting templates have changed as some reporting requirements or data element definitions have been revised in an attempt to better align definitions across DOL programs, in a larger effort to reduce overall reporting burden. WIOA section 416(d) authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 3141(d). 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 1205–0521. The current approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2019; 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 May 23, 2017 (82 FR 23604).
