The OMB is particularly interested in comments which:

  • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
  • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
  • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Description: Data previously collected on the following Job Corps application forms are now being collected from data input screens that electronically transmit data to a Center Information System (CIS). Job Corps has continued to collect application data because it was necessary to the application process that youth receiving training on Job Corps centers be eligible for the benefits provided.

Job Corps has now implemented electronic collection of data during the Job Corps application process and the changes required by the Workforce Investment Act have been incorporated in the collection. We request that the following data used in the application process be extended under OMB 1205-0025:

ETA 652, Job Corps Data Sheet,

ETA 655, Statement from Court or Other Agency, and ETA 682, Child Care Certification.

The automation of these forms will result in a reduction in paperwork burden hours and a streamlined electronic application.
