Background The DOL, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:03 Dec 11, 2017 Jkt 244001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58447 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).

I. Background

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) awards funds to State agencies 
in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the 
Virgin Islands, hereinafter referred to as the ``States'') in order to 
jointly conduct BLS/State Labor Market Information and Occupational 
Safety and Health Statistics cooperative statistical programs, which 
themselves have been approved by OMB separately, as follows:

Current Employment Statistics 1220-0011
Local Area Unemployment Statistics 1220-0017
Occupational Employment Statistics 1220-0042
Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages Report 1220-0012
Annual Refiling Survey 1220-0032
Labor Market Information Cooperative Agreement 1220-0079
Multiple Worksite Report 1220-0134
Annual Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses 1220-0045

    To ensure the timely flow of information and to be able to evaluate 
and improve the BLS/State cooperative programs' management and
