There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

SUBJECT SCSEP Reporting Hand Book

1. PURPOSE: To provide grantees with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved forms and instructions for completing those forms.

2. REFERENCES: OW 99-21 Federal Regulations Notice Regarding SCSEP Report

3. BACKGROUND: The SCSEP uses two forms to report information on activities: one contains program data, and the other financial information. Both forms were approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for continued use. Because the Older Americans Act (OAA) was recently reauthorized these forms may be somewhat out dated when the OAA amendments of 2000 are fully implemented. Nevertheless, these forms have been approved and should be used until further notice.

The attached handbook and the instructions have not been greatly changed from previous but they should be consulted to provide guidance when SCSEP reports are prepared.

4. NOTEWORTHY CHANGES:There are not many changes. They include the following:

* Most sponsors will need to report program information on the Quarterly Progress Report (QPR) only twice during a Program Year--at the end of the December quarter and at the end of the June quarter. The financial report, the FSR 269, will continue to be provided quarterly, however.

* The QPR now contains a place to report unsubsidized placements made by the project which are not counted toward achievement of the unsubsidized placement goal.

* The word "Handicapped" has been replaced by the word "disabled."

* In the Race/Ethnic section of the QPR the wording has been changed slightly.

5. DIRECTIVE:Sponsors should use the new forms beginning with the new grant period (Program Year 2001, beginning July 1, 2001. The QPR for March, 2001 need not be submitted.

Reporting "On-line" remains both the preferred way of reporting and the required way. Grantees that wish to also send a hard copy may do so.

Copies of "the new forms" may be found on the Web at http://wdsc.doleta.gov/seniors/ in the Library and at What's New.

5. INQUIRIES:Questions should be directed to your Federal Representative at (202) 693-3756,57,58,61, 62, 64.
