SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks PRA approval for revisions to 
the Federal Contractor Veterans' Employment Report information 
collection. VEVRAA generally requires a covered Federal contractor or 
subcontractor to report annually on the total number of its employees 
who belong to the categories of VEVRAA protected veterans and the total 
number of those employees who hired during the period covered by the 
report. This ICR has been characterized as a revision, because the 
agency has now fully phased out the VETS-100A Report. All reporting 
will now be done using the VETS-4212 Report, which has fewer reporting 
elements that its predecessor. The Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment 
Assistance Act of 1974 authorizes this information collection. See 38 
U.S.C. 4212.
    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 1293-0005. The DOL notes that existing information 
collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month 
extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on July 18, 2017 (82 FR 32875).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1293-0005. 
The OMB 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 
electronic submission of responses.
