SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for E:\FR\FM\09JAN1.SGM 09JAN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 6 / Tuesday, January 9, 2018 / Notices revisions to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Common Performance Reporting information collection. The WIOA requires states to report on performance in core programs such as the Wagner-Peyser Act programs, the Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs, Adult Education and Family Literacy Act programs, and the Vocational Rehabilitation Act programs. This collection contains the data to be collected for the measure states are to use to report on performance. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of changes to the WIOA Eligible Training Provider Performance Report (EPT) (DefinitionsOnly) (Form ETA–9171), WIOA Annual Statewide Performance Report (Form ETA–9169), and WIOA Joint PIRL (Form ETA–9170). Additionally, in this ICR, data elements related to training program information to the ETP Performance Report have been added. This additional information is necessary to facilitate the provision of more useful information to assist participants in choosing employment and training activities, and in choosing ETPs. Other changes include clarifying specifications and data elements as well as aligning the forms with published guidance and policy. WIOA section 116 authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 3141. 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 1205–0526. The current approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2019; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on January 19, 2017 (82 FR 6651). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:58 Jan 08, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 1205–0526. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for

revisions to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Common 
Performance Reporting information collection. The WIOA requires states 
to report on performance in core programs such as the Wagner-Peyser Act 
programs, the Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs, Adult 
Education and Family Literacy Act programs, and the Vocational 
Rehabilitation Act programs. This collection contains the data to be 
collected for the measure states are to use to report on performance. 
This information collection has been classified as a revision, because 
of changes to the WIOA Eligible Training Provider Performance Report 
(EPT) (Definitions-Only) (Form ETA-9171), WIOA Annual Statewide 
Performance Report (Form ETA-9169), and WIOA Joint PIRL (Form ETA-
9170). Additionally, in this ICR, data elements related to training 
program information to the ETP Performance Report have been added. This 
additional information is necessary to facilitate the provision of more 
useful information to assist participants in choosing employment and 
training activities, and in choosing ETPs. Other changes include 
clarifying specifications and data elements as well as aligning the 
forms with published guidance and policy. WIOA section 116 authorizes 
this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 3141.
    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 1205-0526. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on August 31, 2019; however, the DOL notes that existing 
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a 
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements 
would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on January 19, 2017 (82 FR 6651).
    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 1205-0526. 
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
