Comment Request for Information Collection for Pre-Apprenticeship-Pathways to Success, New Collection
The Department of Labor (Department), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)] (PRA). The PRA helps ensure that respondents can provide requested data in the desired format with minimal reporting burden (time and financial resources), that collection instruments are clearly understood, and that the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, ETA is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data about quality pre-apprenticeship programs that prepare qualified entrants for registered apprenticeships and contribute to the development of a diverse and skilled workforce.
