SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for
the OSHA Grantee Quarterly Progress Report, Form OSHA-171, information
collection. The OSHA uses Form OSHA-171 to collect information
concerning activities conducted during the quarter by grantees under
the Susan Harwood Training Grants Program. This information is used to
monitor progress to determine whether the organization is using Federal
grant funds as specified in its grant application. Occupational Safety
and Health Act of 1970 section 21(c) authorizes this information
collection. See 29 U.S.C. 670(c).
This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency
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 that 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
OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3)
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is
scheduled to expire on August 31, 2017. The DOL seeks to extend PRA
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years,
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related
notice published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2017 (82 FR 23315).
Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB,
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0100.
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.
