The Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning a proposed extension for the authority to conduct the information collection request (ICR) titled, ‘‘Benefit Accuracy Measurement (BAM) Program.’’ This comment request is part of continuing Departmental efforts to reduce paperwork and SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:52 Feb 21, 2019 Jkt 247001 respondent burden in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA). Consideration will be given to all written comments received by April 23, 2019. 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 Dennis Austin by telephone at 202–693– 3056, TTY 1–877–889–5627 (these are not toll-free numbers), or by email at Austin.Dennis@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, Employment and Training Administration, Office of Unemployment Insurance, Room S–4520, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20210, by email at Austin.Dennis@dol.gov, or by Fax at 202–693–3975. DATES: Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). As part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, DOL 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 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data is 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. Since 1987, all State Workforce Agencies (SWAs), except the U.S. Virgin Islands, have been required by regulation at 20 CFR part 602 to operate BAM programs to assess the accuracy of their unemployment insurance (UI) benefit payments in three programs: State UI, Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE), and Unemployment Compensation for Exservicemembers (UCX). Beginning in 2001, BAM was modified to include the sampling and investigation of UI claims denied for monetary, separation, or nonseparation issues. BAM is one of the tools DOL uses to measure and reduce waste, fraud, and abuse in the UI program. By investigating small representative weekly samples of both paid and denied UI claims, each SWA is able to estimate reliably the number and dollar value of proper and improper payments; the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5723 number of proper and improper denials of claims for UI benefits; the rates of occurrence of these proper and improper payments and denials; and the error types, error causes, and the parties that are responsible for the errors. Paid Claims Accuracy. Each week, SWAs select random samples of both intrastate and interstate original payments (including combined wage claims) made for a week of UI benefits under the State UI, UCX, and UCFE programs. A sample of 360 cases per year are pulled in the 10 SWAs with the smallest UI program workloads (defined as the average annual UI weeks paid during the last five years) and 480 cases per year in the other SWA. SWA BAM staff audit each selected claim, examining all aspects of a claimant’s eligibility to receive UI benefits during the sampled week. The findings are entered into an automated database that is maintained on a computer located in each SWA. Denied Claims Accuracy (DCA). Each week, SWAs select random samples from three separate sampling frames constructed from the universes of UI claims for which eligibility was denied for monetary, separation, and nonseparation reasons. All SWAs sample a minimum of 150 cases of each denial type in each calendar year. SWAs’ BAM staff members review agency records and contact claimants, employers, and all other relevant parties to verify information in agency records or obtain additional information pertinent to the determination that denied eligibility for UI benefits. Unlike the investigation of paid claims, in which all prior determinations affecting claimant eligibility for the compensated week selected for the sample are evaluated, the investigation of denied claims is limited to the issue upon which the denial determination is based. The findings are entered into an automated database that is maintained on a computer located in each SWA. DOL maintains a database of each SWA’s BAM paid and denied claims cases, minus any personally identifying information. DOL uses BAM data to measure SWA performance with respect to UI payment integrity and to meet the DOL’s reporting requirements of the Improper Payments Information Act of 2002 (IPIA), the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010, and the Government Performance and Results Act. DOL also relies heavily on BAM data for information on UI operations, such as claims filing method, UI wage replacement rates, and claimant characteristics. The results of the BAM survey are reported annually on the ETA website at the following E:\FR\FM\22FEN1.SGM 22FEN1
