SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation 
program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an 
opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested 
data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and 
financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly 
understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly 
    ETA requires the collection and reporting of data on eligible 
persons served under the WIOA, Section 166, Comprehensive Services 
Program (CSP) and Supplemental Youth Services (SYS) Program to assess 
the performance and delivery of services. Each Indian and Native 
American (INA) grantee receiving WIOA, Section 166 funds (non-Pub. L. 
102-477 grantees) shall submit a CSP report (ETA Form 9084) on a 
quarterly basis. Grantees receiving WIOA Section 166 (SYS) funds (non-
Pub. L. 102-477 grantees) shall submit a SYS program report (ETA Form 
9085) semi-annually. This request is to extend the existing ETA form 
9084 and 9085 report submitted each quarter/semi-annually, by INA 
grantees. The current ETA forms 9084 and 9085 expire on January 31, 
2020. 29 U.S.C. Chapter 30, Subchapter V, Sec.  2935(2), authorizes 
this information collection.
    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 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 
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the 
contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to 
receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB control number 
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    DOL 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 whether 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).
