This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Program Reporting and Performance Standards System for Indian and Native Americans Program Under Title 1, Section 166 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, OMB Control No. 1205-0422 contains two forms: ETA 9084, Comprehensive Services Program, and ETA 9085, Supplemental Youth Services Program. It also includes standard data elements for participants, the basis of the current performance standards system for WIOA section 166 grantees. ETA 9084 is completed by both tribal and non-profit private sector grantees. ETA 9085 is completed only by tribal grantees. This information collection is a revision, because this information collection request (ICR) is Start Printed Page 5250being submitted as revision in order to extend the expiration date beyond its current expiration, January 31, 2020. Extending the reporting and recordkeeping system is necessary in order to include data collection necessary for tracking grantee performance on the common performance measures currently tracked for the Comprehensive Services Program and the Supplemental Youth Services program. The prior ICR stated that Form ETA-9085 was submitted quarterly when it should have stated semi-annually. This ICR corrects that error. The prior ICR also included burden hours for “collecting” the data for the SPIR report which is different than “submitting” a SPIR report and therefore misrepresents the burden hours for submitting the SPIR. This ICR combines ETA Form 9084 and the SPIR as one report because ETA Form 9084 is an aggregate (roll-up) of the individual records in the SPIR and both reports are uploaded simultaneously.
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 the OMB, under the PRA, approves it 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 1205-0422. The current approval is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2020; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB will receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on November 15, 2019 (84 FR 62557).
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 thirty-(30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

- Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility.
