The Departments of Labor and Education published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the joint information collection request for performance reporting to fulfill the requirements under section 116 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. This represents a collaborative effort among staff from the Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration and the Department of Education's Office of Career Technical, and Adult Education and the Rehabilitation Services Administration. The information collection request includes an individual participant layout, with common definitions and data elements, to be used by states for reporting purposes. The ICR also includes the accompanying specifications, and the templates to be used by the States and local areas for the annual performance report, and the template to be used by Eligible Training Providers for their reports to the State, which will then make that available to the Department of Labor.
