SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information are encouraged. Your comments should address one or more of the following four points: —Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 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; —Evaluate whether and if so how the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected can be enhanced; 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. Overview of this information collection: 1. Type of Information Collection: Revision of Existing Collection. 2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center- Trafficking Information Management System (TIMS). 3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: NA. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Office for Victims of Crime, in the Office of Justice Programs. 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: OVC Grantees. Abstract: The current package for OMB approval is designed to simplify performance reporting for OVC grantees through the OVC Trafficking Information Management System (TIMS) Online system, a Web-based database and reporting system for the Victims of Human Trafficking Grant and the Enhanced Collaborative Model Grant initiatives. OVC will require OVC VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 Aug 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 Grantees to use this electronic tool to submit grant performance data, including demographics about human trafficking victims. Since 2012, OVC has published annual analyses of these data to provide the crime victims’ field with stronger evidence for practices and programs. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are approximately 60 OVC Services to Victims of Human Trafficking Grantees per six-month reporting period. On average, it should take each grantee one hour to seven hours, depending on client case load per reporting period, to enter information into TIMS Online. There are two reporting periods per year. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: 480 hours (average 60 OVC grantees * average 4 hours * 2 times per year). If additional information is required contact: Jerri Murray, Department Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice, Justice Management Division, Policy and Planning Staff, Two Constitution Square, 145 N Street NE, 3E.405B, Washington, DC 20530.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David H. King by telephone at 202–693– 2698 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at King.David.H@dol.gov. 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 Noncitizen Benefit Clarification and Other Technical Amendments Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105–306) permanently authorized the SEA program, which is a reemployment program that helps Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants start their own businesses. Public Law 112–96, the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (the 2012 Act), expanded the SEA program to provide states the opportunity to allow UI claimants receiving Extended Benefits to participate in the SEA program. Currently, five states use this reemployment program. Section 2183(b)(1) of the 2012 Act directs the Secretary of Labor to establish reporting requirements for States that have established SEA programs, which shall include reporting on: (A) The total number of individuals who received unemployment compensation and (i) were referred to a SEA program; (ii) participated in such ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\10AUN1.SGM 10AUN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 151 / Tuesday, August 10, 2021 / Notices program; and (iii) received an allowance under such program; (B) the total amount of allowances provided to individuals participating in a SEA program; (C) the total income (as determined by survey or other appropriate method) for businesses that have been established by individuals participating in a SEA program, as well as the total number of individuals employed through such businesses; and (D) any additional information, as determined appropriate by the Secretary. ETA currently uses Form ETA–9161 as an electronic reporting mechanism to collect this required information. In addition to Public Law 112–96, collection of data is used for oversight of the program as authorized under Section 303(a)(6) of the Social Security Act. Also, the code of Federal Regulations authorizes this information collection See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. 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 number 1205– 0490. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 Aug 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 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).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Crystal Rennie by telephone at 202– 693–0456 or by email at DOL_PRA_ PUBLIC@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Standard requires that when aerial lifts are ‘‘field modified’’ for uses other than those intended by the manufacturer, the manufacturer or other equivalent entity, such as a nationally recognized testing laboratory, must certify in writing that the modification is in conformity with all applicable provisions of ANSI A92.2–1969 and the OSHA standard and that the modified aerial lift is at least as safe as the equipment was before modification. Employers are to maintain the certification record and make it available to OSHA compliance officers. This record provides assurance to employers, workers, and compliance officers that the modified aerial lift is safe for use; thereby, preventing failure while workers are being elevated. The certification record also provides the most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the Standard. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on May 5, 2021 (86 FR 23434). This information collection is subject to the PRA.

paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation 
program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an

the SEA program to provide states the opportunity to allow UI claimants 
receiving Extended Benefits to participate in the SEA program.

method) for businesses that have been established by individuals 
participating in a SEA program, as well as the total number of 
individuals employed through such businesses; and
    (D) any additional information, as determined appropriate by the 
Secretary. ETA currently uses Form ETA-9161 as an electronic reporting 
mechanism to collect this required information. In addition to Public 
Law 112-96, collection of data is used for oversight of the program as 
authorized under Section 303(a)(6) of the Social Security Act. Also,
