VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:12 Apr 03, 2018 Jkt 244001 General Information DEPARTMENT OF LABOR The attention of interested persons is directed to the following: (1) The fact that a transaction is the subject of an exemption under section 408(a) of the Act and/or section 4975(c)(2) of the Code does not relieve a fiduciary or other party in interest or disqualified person from certain other provisions of the Act and/or the Code, including any prohibited transaction provisions to which the exemption does not apply and the general fiduciary responsibility provisions of section 404 of the Act, which, among other things, require a fiduciary to discharge his duties respecting the plan solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries of the plan and in a prudent fashion in accordance with section 404(a)(1)(b) of the Act; nor does it affect the requirement of section 401(a) of the Code that the plan must operate for the exclusive benefit of the employees of the employer maintaining the plan and their beneficiaries; (2) Before an exemption may be granted under section 408(a) of the Act and/or section 4975(c)(2) of the Code, the Department must find that the exemption is administratively feasible, in the interests of the plan and of its participants and beneficiaries, and protective of the rights of participants and beneficiaries of the plan; (3) The proposed exemptions, if granted, will be supplemental to, and not in derogation of, any other provisions of the Act and/or the Code, including statutory or administrative exemptions and transitional rules. Furthermore, the fact that a transaction is subject to an administrative or statutory exemption is not dispositive of whether the transaction is in fact a prohibited transaction; and (4) The proposed exemptions, if granted, will be subject to the express condition that the material facts and representations contained in each application are true and complete, and that each application accurately describes all material terms of the transaction which is the subject of the exemption.

SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\04APN1.SGM 04APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 65 / Wednesday, April 4, 2018 / Notices This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the DOL-Only Performance Accountability, Information, and Reporting System. The following programs are required to report through this system: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult; National Dislocated Worker and Youth; Wagner Peyser Employment Service; National Farmworker Jobs Program; YouthBuild; Job Corps; and Indian and Native American. Requiring these programs to use a standard set of data elements, definitions, and specifications at all levels of the workforce system helps improve the quality of the performance information that is received by the DOL. While the H1–B discretionary grant, Senior Community Service Employment, Jobs for Veterans State Grants, the Reintegration of ExOffenders program (Adult and Youth), and the Trade Adjustment Assistance programs are not authorized under the WIOA, they will be utilizing the data element definitions and reporting templates proposed in this ICR. The accuracy, reliability, and comparability of program reports submitted by states and grantees using Federal funds are fundamental elements of good public administration. The subject information collection requirements are necessary tools for maintaining and demonstrating system integrity. More specifically, this ICR covers several information collection instruments including—the Quarterly Program Performance Report (Form ETA–9173), WIOA Pay-forPerformance Report (Form ETA–9174), and Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL) (Form ETA–9172). It should also be noted that the required data elements are noted within the PIRL with respect to the Job Corps; however, the burden associated with that data collection currently is counted under the ICR entitled, ‘‘Placement Verification and Follow-up of Job Corps Participants,’’ (OMB Control Number 1205–0426) as part of the follow-up survey process. The information collection subject to this Notice has been classified as a revision, because of the agency is adding citations for recently promulgated regulations that contain information collections as part of the authority for the collection. See 20 CFR 641.700, 641.710, 641.720, 641.730, 641.740, and 641.750. These regulations pertain to the Senior Community Service Employment Program. WIOA section 416(d) authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 3141(d). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally amozie on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:12 Apr 03, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 1205–0521. The current approval is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2018; 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 December 12, 2017 (82 FR 58446). 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 1205–0521. 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 DOL-Only Performance Accountability, Information, and 
Reporting System. The following programs are required to report through 
this system: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult; 
National Dislocated Worker and Youth; Wagner Peyser Employment Service; 
National Farmworker Jobs Program; YouthBuild; Job Corps; and Indian and 
Native American. Requiring these programs to use a standard set of data 
elements, definitions, and specifications at all levels of the 
workforce system helps improve the quality of the performance 
information that is received by the DOL. While the H1-B discretionary 
grant, Senior Community Service Employment, Jobs for Veterans State 
Grants, the Reintegration of Ex-Offenders program (Adult and Youth), 
and the Trade Adjustment Assistance programs are not authorized under 
the WIOA, they will be utilizing the data element definitions and 
reporting templates proposed in this ICR. The accuracy, reliability, 
and comparability of program reports submitted by states and grantees 
using Federal funds are fundamental elements of good public 
administration. The subject information collection requirements are 
necessary tools for maintaining and demonstrating system integrity. 
More specifically, this ICR covers several information collection 
instruments including--the Quarterly Program Performance Report (Form 
ETA-9173), WIOA Pay-for-Performance Report (Form ETA-9174), and 
Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL) (Form ETA-9172). It should 
also be noted that the required data elements are noted within the PIRL 
with respect to the Job Corps; however, the burden associated with that 
data collection currently is counted under the ICR entitled, 
``Placement Verification and Follow-up of Job Corps Participants,'' 
(OMB Control Number 1205-0426) as part of the follow-up survey process. 
The information collection subject to this Notice has been classified 
as a revision, because of the agency is adding citations for recently 
promulgated regulations that contain information collections as part of 
the authority for the collection. See 20 CFR 641.700, 641.710, 641.720, 
641.730, 641.740, and 641.750. These regulations pertain to the Senior 
Community Service Employment Program. WIOA section 416(d) authorizes 
this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 3141(d).
    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 1205-0521. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on September 30, 2018; 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 December 12, 2017 (82 FR 58446).

     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
