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, §§ 669.500 and 669.510.

Ira L. Mills,

Departmental Clearance Officer.
