On March 27, 2012, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved under the PRA the Department of Labor's information collection request for requirements in 20 CFR part 641. The current expiration date for OMB authorization for this information collection is March 31, 2015.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved under the PRA information collection requirements contained in recently revised final regulations under the Older Americans Act (OAA) published by the Department of Labor in the Federal Register on January 31, 2012. See 77 FR 4654. The purpose of the Final Rule was to implement an additional indicator for volunteer work in the SCSEP. Specifically, this rule amended existing regulations regarding Performance Accountability for title V of the OAA and corresponding definitions. These regulations also provided administrative and programmatic guidance and requirements for the implementation of the SCSEP.
The preamble to the new regulations stated an effective date of March 1, 2012; however, OMB had not yet provided a PRA-required approval for the revised information collection requirements contained in the revised SCSEP rules at the time of their publication. 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(2). An agency may not conduct an information collection unless it has a currently valid OMB approval; therefore, in accordance with the PRA, the effective date of the information collection requirements in the revised regulations was delayed until OMB approved them under the PRA. 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(1)(B)(iii)(V). On March 27, 2012, OMB approved the Department's information collection request under Control Number 1215-0040, thus giving effect to the requirements, as announced and published in the Federal Register on January 31, 2012, under the PRA. The current expiration date for OMB authorization for this information collection is March 31, 2015.
Dated: Signed in Washington, DC on this 18th day, April 2012.
Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration.
