3501 et seq.).

DATES: Submit comments on or before December 31, 2012.

including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR is for continued authorization of 
three primary and two secondary data collection instruments used to 
collect follow-up data on individuals who are no longer actively 
participating in Job Corps. The instruments are comprised of modules 
that include questions designed to obtain the following information: 
re-verification of initial job and/or school placements, employment and 
educational experiences, job search activities of those who are neither 
working nor in school, and information about former participants' 
satisfaction with services received.
    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 if the 
collection of information 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 1205-0426. The current 
approval is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2012; however, it 
should be noted that existing information collection requirements 
submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they 
undergo review. For additional information, see the related notice 
published in the Federal Register on October 1, 2012 (77 FR 59984).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section by December 31, 2012. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 
1205-0426. 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 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.
    Agency: DOL-ETA.
    Title of Collection: Placement Verification and Follow-up of Job 
Corps Participants.
    OMB Control Number: 1205-0426.
