The DOL Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) administers funds for the multi-year Jobs for Veterans' State Grants (JVSG) to each State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam on an annual basis on a fiscal year cycle. These forms are used to facilitate the identification of required programmatic and financial data provided by States requesting and expending funds and for monitoring the grants, making quarterly adjustments and reporting results to Congress. The use of program-specific standard formats helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in a uniform way, reporting burdens are minimized, the impact of collection requirements on respondents are properly assessed, collection instruments are clearly understood by respondents, and the information is easily consolidated for posting in accordance with statutory requirements.

Changing Forms
The total burden hours for this ICR decreased from 17,053 to 6,062 since the last approval. This reduction is primarily due to the reduction of requirements for Manager’s Reports. VETS reviewed our statutory requirements and found that we no longer needed certain components of these reports. We also identified that we could allow states to submit one Manager’s Report that covered several offices instead of one report per office. This drastically reduced both the number of hours per report and the number of reports. The average response hours for the VETS-401 and VETS-501 also decreased slightly because of responses from grant recipients on the actual amount of time it takes them to complete the collections. At the same time, the number of annual responses for the VETS-402 increased from four per year to six per year. This is because the amount of time states may take to expend their grant award has increased from five quarters to 12 quarters. VETS anticipates that, on average, states will need a total of six quarters to expend their annual grants.
