ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting 
burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection 
instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection 
requirements can be properly assessed.
    State UI agencies report data on the ETA 581 report in order to 
measure performance, accuracy and promptness in employer registrations, 
timeliness of filing contribution and wage reports by employers, 
collections (accounts receivable), and field audits of employers. Data 
on the report also measures state efforts to detect employer tax 
avoidance schemes, which is known as State Unemployment Tax Act (SUTA) 
Dumping. Section 303(k) of the Social Security Act requires states to 
detect SUTA Dumping. ETA uses the information reported on the report to 
monitor and measure program performance and make projections and 
forecasts in conjunction with the budgetary process. Sections 303(a)(6) 
and (k) of the Social Security Act authorizes this information 
collection.
    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.

appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number

    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR and posted on the Internet, without redaction. The DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    The DOL 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, e.g., permitting
