SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) Construction Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements information collection that covers recordkeeping, reporting, and third-party disclosure requirements. The OFCCP administers several Executive Orders that prohibit employment discrimination and require covered Federal contractors to take affirmative action to ensure that equal employment opportunities are available regardless of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, or status as an individual with a disability or protected veteran. Recordkeeping and reporting by Federal and Federally assisted construction contractors and subcontractors is necessary to substantiate their compliance with nondiscrimination and affirmative action contractual obligations. This information collection has been classified as a revision for two reasons. First, the agency proposes to add a new form for the reporting requirement found at 41 CFR 60–4.2, which requires contracting officers, applicants, and contractors to submit written notifications to the OFCCP informing the agency of new contract awards that E:\FR\FM\10APN1.SGM 10APN1 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 15408 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 69 / Tuesday, April 10, 2018 / Notices exceed $10,000. Written notices are currently submitted to the OFCCP by fax, mail, or email; however, the new form will allow respondents to submit the notifications on the agency’s website through the proposed Notification of Construction Contract Award Portal. In addition, this ICR would incorporate information collections that are currently approved under the ICRs titled ‘‘Government Contractors, Prohibitions Against Pay Secrecy Policies and Actions’’ (Control Number 1250–0008) and ‘‘Prohibiting Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity by Contractors and Subcontractors’’ (Control Number 1250– 0009). The merger of the collections will place related equal employment requirements for covered Federal construction contractors under master clearances. 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 1250–0001. 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 September 25, 2017 (82 FR 44663). 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 1250–0001. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Apr 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 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.

[FR Doc. 2018–07288 Filed 4–9–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–CM–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Bureau of Labor Statistics Proposed Collection, Comment Request ACTION: Notice. The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information, in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95). This program helps to 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 on respondents can be properly assessed. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the ‘‘Job Openings and SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Labor Turnover Survey.’’ A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the individual listed below in the ADDRESSES section of this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the ADDRESSES section below on or before June 11, 2018. ADDRESSES: Send comments to Erin Good, BLS Clearance Officer, Division of Management Systems, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Room 4080, 2 Massachusetts Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20212, telephone number 202–691– 7628. (This is not a toll free number.) FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin Good, BLS Clearance Officer, telephone number 202–691–7628. (See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) collects data on job vacancies, labor hires, and labor separations. As the monthly JOLTS time series grow longer, their value in assessing the business cycle, the difficulty that employers have in hiring workers, and the extent of the mismatch between the unused supply of available workers and the unmet demand for labor by employers will increase. The study of the complex relationship between job openings and unemployment is of particular interest to researchers. While these two measures are expected to move in opposite directions over the course of the business cycle, their relative levels and movements depend on the efficiency of the labor market in matching workers and jobs. Along with the job openings rate, trends in hires and separations may broadly identify which aggregate industries face the tightest labor markets. Quits rates, the number of persons who quit during an entire month as a percentage of total employment, may provide clues about workers’ views of the labor market or their success in finding better jobs. In addition, businesses will be able to compare their own turnover rates to the national, regional, and major industry division rates. The BLS uses the JOLTS form to gather employment, job openings, hires, and total separations from business establishments. The information is collected once a month at the BLS Data Collection Center (DCC) in Atlanta, Georgia. The information is collected using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), Web, email, and E:\FR\FM\10APN1.SGM 10APN1

that prohibit employment discrimination and require covered Federal
