Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education; Rehabilitation Services Administration; Comment Request for Information Collection for the WIOA Performance Management, Information, and Reporting System (OMB Control No. 1205-0NEW), New Collection
The U.S. Departments of Labor and Education (the Departments), as part of their continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, are conducting a preclearance consultation to provide the public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on the proposed collection 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), collection instruments are clearly understood and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Departments are soliciting comments concerning the collection of data for the WIOA Performance Management, Information, and Reporting System (OMB Control No. 1205-0NEW). The data collections included in this reporting system fulfill requirements in WIOA Sec.116(d)(1) for the development of report templates for the State Performance Report for WIOA core programs, the Local Area Performance Report, and the Eligible Training Provider Report. Previously, a supporting statement was provided for this data collection under OMB Control No. 1205-0420, which was made public on April 16, 2015. The sole difference between the aforementioned supporting statement and the subject of this notice is that OMB Control No. 1205-0NEW does not include the non-WIOA related, currently cleared burden.
