SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 Office of Management and Budget (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. The Department of Labor (DOL) seeks approval of a revision to a current information collection request (ICR) titled ‘‘Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Common Performance Reporting’’ (OMB Control No. 1205– 0526), previously approved June 30, 2016. This request is for a ‘‘common forms’’ clearance process. The Department of Education (ED) (the two Departments to be jointly referred to as the ‘‘Departments’’) actively participated in the development of this ICR, and is a signatory to the ‘‘WIOA Common Performance Reporting’’ information collection, which details the requirements for WIOA Statewide performance reporting. The previous iteration of this ICR contained the following: WIOA Statewide Performance Report Template and WIOA Local Performance Report Template (ETA–9169); WIOA Joint Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL) (ETA–9170); and WIOA Eligible Training Provider (ETP) Performance Report Specifications and WIOA Eligible Training Provider (ETP) Performance Report Definitions (ETP– 9171). This ICR revises and updates certain aspects of those existing information collection instruments. Further, a few non-substantive adjustments are included to the WIOA Eligible Training Provider (ETP) Performance Report Definitions (ETP–9171), WIOA Joint PIRL (ETA–9170) and the WIOA Statewide Performance Report Template and WIOA Local Performance Report Template (ETA–9169). These adjustments clarify data elements and align the forms with published guidance and policy. Section 116 of WIOA (29 U.S.C. 3141) authorizes this information collection. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41245 of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 Office of Management and 
Budget (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.
    The Department of Labor (DOL) seeks approval of a revision to a 
current information collection request (ICR) titled ``Workforce 
Innovation and Opportunity Act Common Performance Reporting'' (OMB 
Control No. 1205-0526), previously approved June 30, 2016. This request 
is for a ``common forms'' clearance process. The Department of 
Education (ED) (the two Departments to be jointly referred to as the 
``Departments'') actively participated in the development of this ICR, 
and is a signatory to the ``WIOA Common Performance Reporting'' 
information collection, which details the requirements for WIOA 
Statewide performance reporting.
    The previous iteration of this ICR contained the following: WIOA 
Statewide Performance Report Template and WIOA Local Performance Report 
Template (ETA-9169); WIOA Joint Participant Individual Record Layout 
(PIRL) (ETA-9170); and WIOA Eligible Training Provider (ETP) 
Performance Report Specifications and WIOA Eligible Training Provider 
(ETP) Performance Report Definitions (ETP-9171).
    This ICR revises and updates certain aspects of those existing 
information collection instruments. Further, a few non-substantive 
adjustments are included to the WIOA Eligible Training Provider (ETP) 
Performance Report Definitions (ETP-9171), WIOA Joint PIRL (ETA-9170) 
and the WIOA Statewide Performance Report Template and WIOA Local 
Performance Report Template (ETA-9169). These adjustments clarify data 
elements and align the forms with published guidance and policy.
    Section 116 of WIOA (29 U.S.C. 3141) 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 it is approved by 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 No. 
1205-0526.
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    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).
