SUMMARY: The Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning a proposed extension for the authority to conduct the information collection request (ICR) titled, ‘‘Reintegration of Ex-Offenders Adult Reporting System.’’ This comment request is part of continuing Departmental efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA). DATES: Consideration will be given to all written comments received by July 24, 2018. ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR with applicable supporting documentation, including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency of response, and estimated total burden, may be obtained free by contacting Derrick Williams by telephone at 202– 693–3931 (this is not a toll-free VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 May 24, 2018 Jkt 241001 number), TTY/TDD by calling the tollfree Federal Information Relay Service at 1–877–889–5627, or by email at Williams.Derrick.D@dol.gov. Submit written comments about, or requests for a copy of, this ICR by mail or courier to the U.S. Department of Labor, Division of Youth Services, Room N–4508, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20210; by email: Williams.Derrick.D@dol.gov; or by Fax: 202–693–3113. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Derrick Williams by telephone at 202–693–3931 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at Williams.Derrick.D@dol.gov. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This program helps to ensure 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. In applying for the Reentry Employment Opportunities (REO) ExOffender-Adult grants, applicants agree to submit participant data and quarterly aggregate reports for individuals who receive services through REO-Adult programs. The reports include aggregate PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 data on demographic characteristics, types of services received, placements, outcomes, and follow-up status. Specifically, they summarize data on participants who received employment and placement services, mentoring, and other services essential to reintegrating ex-offenders through REO-Adult programs. The Department requests a revision of the currently approved information collection to meet the reporting and record-keeping requirements of the REO Ex-OffendersAdult grants through an ETA-provided, Web-based Management Information System (MIS). The Department also requests an increase in the burden hours and additional data items because DOL is now awarding a larger number of adult versus juvenile offender grants. This information collection is conducted under the authority of Section 185(a)(2) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act which requires recipients of funds under Title I to maintain such records and submit such reports as the Secretary requires regarding the performance of programs and activities carried out under this title. This information collection maintains a reporting and recordkeeping system for a minimum level of information collection that is necessary to: comply with Equal Opportunity requirements; hold REO-Adult grantees appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they receive, including common performance measures; and allow the Department to fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to 
reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance 
consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies 
an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This 
program helps to ensure 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.
    In applying for the Reentry Employment Opportunities (REO) Ex-
Offender-Adult grants, applicants agree to submit participant data and 
quarterly aggregate reports for individuals who receive services 
through REO-Adult programs. The reports include aggregate data on 
demographic characteristics, types of services received, placements, 
outcomes, and follow-up status. Specifically, they summarize data on 
participants who received employment and placement services, mentoring, 
and other services essential to reintegrating ex-offenders through REO-
Adult programs. The Department requests a revision of the currently 
approved information collection to meet the reporting and record-
keeping requirements of the REO Ex-Offenders-Adult grants through an 
ETA-provided, Web-based Management Information System (MIS). The 
Department also requests an increase in the burden hours and additional 
data items because DOL is now awarding a larger number of adult versus 
juvenile offender grants. This information collection is conducted 
under the authority of Section 185(a)(2) of the Workforce Innovation 
and Opportunity Act which requires recipients of funds under Title I to 
maintain such records and submit such reports as the Secretary requires 
regarding the performance of programs and activities carried out under 
this title. This information collection maintains a reporting and 
record-keeping system for a minimum level of information collection 
that is necessary to: comply with Equal Opportunity requirements; hold 
REO-Adult grantees appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they 
receive, including common performance measures; and allow the 
Department to fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities.

    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.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the 
contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to 
receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB control number 
1205-0455.
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. The DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    The DOL 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.
