Description: This ICR seeks OMB approval for a follow-up survey to be conducted as part of the Individual Training Account (ITA) Experiment. The experiment is designed to test three different approaches to providing ITAs. Data from the follow-up survey of ITA customers will be used to describe experiences inside the workforce system and labor market outcomes for ITA customers. Measures of these experiences and outcomes are necessary to the evaluation of the three approaches. Based on information from the survey and other data sources, the U.S. Department of Labor can advise local workforce boards on how to administer their ITA programs.Start Signature
