Comment Request for Information Collection for “Collecting Aggregate Participant Counts for Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Title IB, Wagner-Peyser Act, National Emergency Grants, and Reemployment Services Grants,” OMB Control No. 1205-0474, Extension Without Change
The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden conducts a preclearance 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. In response to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the Employment and Training Administration is soliciting comments concerning States' submission of monthly supplemental reports that are based on program participant data that States already collect. This notice utilizes standard clearance procedures in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and 5 CFR 1320.12. This information collection follows an emergency review that was conducted in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and 5 CFR 1320.13. The submission for OMB emergency review was published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2009, see 74 FR 19985. OMB approved the emergency clearance under OMB control number 1205-0474 on May 20, 2009. A copy of this ICR can be obtained from the RegInfo.gov Web site at http:// www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain.
