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 collection of actual Unemployment Insurance (UI) administrative cost data from states’ accounting records and projected expenditures for upcoming years is accomplished through the RJM data collection instrument. The data collected consist of program expenditures and hours worked by state staff, broken out by functional activity, for the most recently completed Federal fiscal year.

This information collection is authorized by Section 303(a)(6) of the Social Security Act and 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.
