In Program Year 2001 budget for Wagner-Peyser Act, State Employment Service Agencies (SESA) were allocated additional funds for re-employment services to Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants. The annual plan and progress report will provide necessary information to assist the Secretary in determining if the proposed SESA re-employment services are acceptable and whether or not the purpose of the funds was achieved. Specific reporting is necessary to adequately track this activity separately from regular operations and record keeping. While this collection sets up new requirements, SESA staff can existing frameworks and systems to prepare the plan and collect any new information.Start Signature
