Proposed Information Collection Request Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations; Reporting and Performance Standards System for the Indian and Native American Programs Under Title I-D, Section 166 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998
The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general 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 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that 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 on respondents can be properly assessed. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments on modified reporting requirements for the Indian and Native American programs. This information collection request is necessary in order to collect data for calculating a set of common performance measures of the outcomes achieved by the Indian and Native American programs.
