Comment Request for Information Collection for Contractor Information Gathering, Extension Without Changes
The Department, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, is conducting a preclearance consultation to provide the public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on continuing collection for contractor information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. The PRA helps ensure that the requested data collected by the Job Corps program 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. Updates to this information collection include: The incorporation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) as Job Corps' statutory authority; The addition of two new Job Corps centers; Revised burden hours. Currently, ETA is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data about contractor information gathering and reporting requirements (expiration date May 31, 2016).
