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.
Trade Adjustment Assistance Program; Designation of Certifying Officers
This notice is to designate Certifying Officers to carry out functions under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program under chapter 2 of title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2271 et seq.), and the implementing regulations at 29 CFR part 90. Background: The TAA program operates under the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, to provide assistance to domestic workers adversely affected in their employment by certain types of foreign trade. Workers become eligible for program benefits only if the worker group is certified under the Act as eligible to apply for adjustment assistance. From time to time the agency issues an Order designating or redesignating officials of the agency authorized to act as Certifying Officers, responsible for reviewing and signing adjustment assistance determinations. This also is done when current Certifying Officials retire or leave and/or when there is a need to designate new Certifying Officials. Employment and Training Order No. 1-15 was issued to revise the listing of officials designated as Certifying Officers, superseding Employment and Training Order No. 1-11 (76 FR 2720, January 14, 2011). The Employment and Training Order No. 1-XX is published below.

Currently, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data on the Form ETA- 9165, Employer-Provided Survey Attestations to Accompany H-2B Prevailing Wage Determination Request Based on a Non-OES Survey (OMB Control Number 1205-0516), which expires on October 31, 2015.

The FDIC is proposing to amend 12 CFR part 327 to refine the deposit insurance assessment system for small insured depository institutions that have been federally insured for at least 5 years (established small banks) by: revising the financial ratios method so that it would be based on a statistical model estimating the probability of failure over three years; updating the financial measures used in the financial ratios method consistent with the statistical model; and eliminating risk categories for established small banks and using the financial ratios method to determine assessment rates for all such banks (subject to minimum or maximum initial assessment rates based upon a bank's CAMELS composite rating). The FDIC does not propose changing the range of assessment rates that will apply once the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF or fund) reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent; thus, under the proposal, as under current regulations, the range of initial deposit insurance assessment rates will fall once the reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent. The FDIC proposes that a final rule would go into effect the quarter after a final rule is adopted; by their terms, however, the proposed amendments would not become operative until the quarter after the DIF reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent.
