SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The DOL, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and 
respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation process to 
provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to 
comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before 
submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This process helps 
ensure that 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.
    The DOL-Only ICR was developed based on the requirements in WIOA 
Sec. 116. The Department amended the information collection by adding 
the performance-related reporting requirements for SCSEP to the 
Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL) (ETA-9172), and (Program) 
Performance Report (ETA-9173).
    The Department requires grantees to certify and submit the ETA 
(Program) Performance Report to ETA on a quarterly basis. ETA will 
aggregate the information the grantees submit through the PIRL to 
populate the ETA (Program) Performance Report and grantees will confirm 
their accuracy.
    The OAA-2016 amended the SCSEP core indicators of performance and 
requires the amended measures to be implemented by regulation by 
December 31, 2017. SCSEP will retain its current ICR (under OMB Control 
Number 1205-0040) for data elements not contained in the revised DOL-
Only Performance Accountability, Information and Reporting System. This 
ICR incorporates the SCSEP Interim Final Rule citations, as required by 
5 CFR 1320.11(h). Those citations are sections 20 CFR parts: 641.700, 
641.710, 641.720, 641.730, 641.740, and 641.750.
    The OAA amended the measures of performance for SCSEP in large part 
to align SCSEP performance measures with the three employment outcome 
indicators mandated for WIOA core programs under WIOA sec. 
116(b)(2)(A)(i)(I)-(III). In addition to these three WIOA employment 
outcome indicators of performance, SCSEP has three measures related to 
participation in the program: Service level, hours of community 
service, and service to the most-in-need.
    The Department proposes to amend the information collection by 
adding the regulatory citations from the SCSEP Interim Final Rule to 
comply with the PRA. The Department plans to review and analyze any 
comments received in response to this Federal Register Notice in order 
to finalize the substantive information collection requirements to the 
extent legally possible.

II. Review Focus

    The Department 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 submissions of responses).
