Requiring these programs to use a standard set of data elements, definitions, and specifications at all levels of the workforce system helps improve the quality of the performance information that is received by the DOL. While H1–B grants, the Reintegration of Ex-Offenders program, and the Trade Adjustment Assistance program are not authorized under the WIOA, these programs will be utilizing the data element definitions and reporting templates proposed in this ICR. The accuracy, reliability, and comparability of program reports submitted by states and grantees using Federal funds are fundamental elements of good public administration, and are necessary tools for maintaining and demonstrating system integrity. This ICR includes several information collection instruments—Program Performance Report, WIOA Pay-forPerformance Report, Participant Individual Record Layout, WIOA Data Element Specifications, and Job E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
