This ICR is to maintain OMB approval under the PRA for the information collections associated with the regulatory requirement at 20 CFR 652.8(d)(5) for States to maintain work applications and job orders for one year. A work application is used in an American Job Center for individuals seeking assistance in finding employment or employability development services. A work application is used to collect information such as an applicant's identification, qualifications, work experience, and desired pay. A work application also includes services provided to the applicant, such as job development, and referral to supportive service. A job order is used in an American Job Center to obtain information on employer job vacancies. Information in a job order includes employer identification, job requirements, pay information, as well as identification of persons referred, hired, or refused. The information is collected at the employer's request in order to publicize job vacancies. American Job Centers collect the information and post it on electronic job banks. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on February 6, 2013 (78 FR 8584).
This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1205-0001.
OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205-0001. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
- Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including Start Printed Page 39016whether the information will have practical utility;
- 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.
