Procurement Roles and Responsibilities for Job Corps Contracts

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Withdrawal of direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Due to the receipt of two significant adverse comments, the 
Department of Labor (Department) is withdrawing the August 29, 2019, 
direct final rule (DFR) that would have made two procedural changes to 
its Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Job Corps 
regulations. The changes would have enabled the Secretary of Labor to 
delegate procurement authority as it relates to the development and 
issuance of requests for proposals for the operation of Job Corps 
centers, outreach and admissions, career transitional services, and 
other operational support services. This action would have aligned 
regulatory provisions with the relevant WIOA statutory language to 
provide greater flexibility for internal operations and management of 
the Job Corps program.

DATES: Effective October 24, 2019, the direct final rule published at 
84 FR 45403 on August 29, 2019, is withdrawn.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the DFR, the Department stated that if a 
significant adverse comment was submitted by September 30, 2019, the 
agency would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register 
informing the public that this DFR will not take effect. The Department 
received two significant adverse comments prior to the close of the 
comment period and, therefore, is withdrawing the direct final rule. 
The Department will address the comments in a subsequent final action 
based upon the proposed action also published in the Federal Register 
on August 29, 2019 (84 FR 45449).
    Accordingly, effective October 24, 2019, the amendment to 20 CFR 
part 686 published in the Federal Register on August 29, 2019 (84 FR 
45449) is withdrawn.
