Description: A continuance of the currently approved WIA financial reporting instructions is requested pursuant to Public Law 105-220, dated August 7, 1998 and Interim Final Rule (IFR), 20 CFR part 652, et al., dated August 11, 2000. Section 185(e) and (f) require that States report quarterly all program and activity costs by cost category and by year of appropriation, any income or profits earned, and any cost incurred such as stand-in costs that are otherwise allowable except for funding limitations. Sec. 185(g) requires that costs only be categorized as administrative or programmatic costs. The Regulations at 20 CFR 667.300 require that DOL issue financial reporting instructions to the States. To comply with the financial reporting requirements in the statute and the regulations, a continuance of the currently approved collection is requested as it is the Department's only means of obtaining the required data. States are currently reporting all required data electronically and will continue to do so under the continuance.Start Signature
