    Description: Section 185 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) 
(Pub. L. 105-220) requires funds recipients to keep records and submit 
such reports as may be required by the Secretary of Labor ``to permit 
the tracing of funds to a level of expenditure adequate to ensure that 
the funds have not been spent unlawfully.'' The WIA Final Rules at 20 
CFR 667.300 require annual plans and quarterly performance reports from 
all ``direct grant recipients''.
    This will be a new data collection, per WIA requirements. The 
primary uses of the data under WIA 167 Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker 
Youth Program will also be to provide material reports to the Secretary 
of Labor, respond to Congressional inquiries, support Congressional 
testimony on behalf of the program and to identify areas of technical 
assistance need and performance improvement. Data is also used to 
establish performance standards for each of the required performance 
measures per regulations at Part 669, Subpart D, Secs. 669.500 and 

Ira L. Mills,
Departmental Clearance Officer.
