FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert Hoekstra by telephone at 202– 693–3522 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at hoekstra.robert@dol.gov. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). 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 Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance (OTAA) is seeking to revise the TAAACS, which collects discrete data on how State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) organize the TAA program. These modifications expand collection on TAA worker list metrics, program integration, and technical assistance and improves the information collected across eight (8) distinct categories. The modifications also seeks to minimize the burden by removing unnecessary, increasing the clarity of questions, and modifying previously cumbersome rankings. This data will allow OTAA to analyze promising practices in support of TAA participants, identify areas with technical assistance needs, and determine opportunities for greater program integration. Section 239(c) of Title II, Chapter 2 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2271 et seq.), 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 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:57 Apr 15, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 Number 1205–0540. 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).
