Job Corps is the nation’s largest residential, educational, and career technical training program for young Americans. The Economic Opportunity Act established Job Corps in 1964, and it currently operates under the authority of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014. For over 54 years, Job Corps has helped prepare over three million at-risk young people between the ages of 16 and 24 for success in our nation’s workforce. With 123 centers in 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, Job Corps assists students across the nation in attaining academic credentials, including High School Diplomas (HSD) and/or High School Equivalency (HSE), and career technical training credentials, including industryrecognized certifications, state licensures, and pre-apprenticeship credentials. Job Corps is a national program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) through the Office of Job Corps and six Regional Offices. DOL awards and administers contracts for the recruiting and screening of new students, center operations, and the placement and transitional support of graduates and former enrollees. Large and small corporations and nonprofit organizations manage and operate 98 Job Corps centers under contractual agreements with DOL. These contract Center Operators are selected through a competitive procurement process that evaluates potential operators’ technical expertise, proposed costs, past performance, and other factors, in accordance with the Competition in Contracting Act and the Federal Acquisition Regulations. The U.S. Department of Agriculture operates the remaining 25 Job Corps centers, called Civilian Conservation Centers, via an interagency agreement. The DOL has a direct role in the operation of Job Corps and does not serve as a pass-through agency for this program. The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA), Section 116(b)(2)(A)(i) and Section 159(c)(4) authorizes this information collection. 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 OMB approves the collection under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31917 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– 0426. 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.

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.
    Job Corps is the nation's largest residential, educational, and 
career technical training program for young Americans. The Economic 
Opportunity Act established Job Corps in 1964, and it currently 
operates under the authority of the Workforce Innovation and 
Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014. For over 54 years, Job Corps has helped 
prepare over three million at-risk young people between the ages of 16 
and 24 for success in our nation's workforce. With 123 centers in 50 
states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, Job Corps assists 
students across the nation in attaining academic credentials, including 
High School Diplomas (HSD) and/or High School Equivalency (HSE), and 
career technical training credentials, including industry-recognized 
certifications, state licensures, and pre-apprenticeship credentials.
    Job Corps is a national program administered by the U.S. Department 
of Labor (DOL) through the Office of Job Corps and six Regional 
Offices. DOL awards and administers contracts for the recruiting and 
screening of new students, center operations, and the placement and 
transitional support of graduates and former enrollees. Large and small 
corporations and nonprofit organizations manage and operate 98 Job 
Corps centers under contractual agreements with DOL. These contract 
Center Operators are selected through a competitive procurement process 
that evaluates potential operators' technical expertise, proposed 
costs, past performance, and other factors, in accordance with the 
Competition in Contracting Act and the Federal Acquisition Regulations. 
The U.S. Department of Agriculture operates the remaining 25 Job Corps 
centers, called Civilian Conservation Centers, via an interagency 
agreement. The DOL has a direct role in the operation of Job Corps and 
does not serve as a pass-through agency for this program. The Workforce 
Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA), Section 116(b)(2)(A)(i) and Section 
159(c)(4) authorizes this information collection.
    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 OMB approves the collection 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

    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.
