Background: The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) is the agency responsible for administration of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) and the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA). 33 U.S.C. 939 (LHWCA) and 5 U.S.C. 8104 (FECA) authorize OWCP to pay for approved vocational rehabilitation services to eligible workers with work-related disabilities. 5 U.S.C. 8111(b) of the FECA and 33 U.S.C. 908(g) of the LHWCA provide that persons undergoing such vocational rehabilitation receive maintenance allowances as additional compensation. Form OWCP–44 is used to collect information necessary to decide if maintenance allowances should continue to be paid. Form OWCP–44 is submitted to OWCP by contractors hired to provide vocational rehabilitation services. Form OWCP–44 gives prompt notification of key events that may require OWCP action in the vocational rehabilitation process. This information collection is currently approved for use through February 28, 2021. For LHWCA, 20 CFR 702.506 and 20 CFR 702. 507, and for FECA, 20 CFR 10.518 and 20 CFR 10.519, authorizes this information collection. This information collection is subject to the PRA.

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.

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.
    This Information Collection Request (ICR) seeks to revise the 
Department of Labor's (DOL) Employment and Training Administration's

Employment Opportunities (REO), H-1B discretionary grants, Senior

    As a part of this revision request, ETA has made changes to the 
Participant Individual Record Layout (ETA-9172), (Program) Performance

versions of the ETA-9173 Quarterly Performance Reports (QPRs) for the

adding data elements needed by program offices, (new elements, and 
checks/unchecks); and (4) revising element names, definitions/
instructions, and code fields to enhance the clarity of the collection.
    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

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
