Description: ETA seeks approval of an annual plan narrative and two progress reports as requirements for One Stop Occupational Employment Statistics Survey Information grants. This information will be used by the Department of Labor and its managing State partners to assure that a employment statistics system required by Wagner-Peyser as amended by the Workforce Investment Act meets the needs of its customers. States seeking grants are requested to provide an annual grant narrative that provides specific information on how the grant funds will accomplish any of the objectives for collecting occupational employment statistics consistent with the plan developed under the existing arrangement with the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), through the BLS Cooperative Agreement with the States. This will be the only request for data collection for this grant. Next year the activity will be administered by the BLS. In addition the States are requested to provide a brief progress report twice during the grant period which explains the progress of the grantee in accomplishing the plan.Start Signature
