                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) is
                an existing collection in use without an OMB Control Number. The WRP is
                a recruitment and referral program that connects students with
                disabilities to an opportunity for employment. Through participating
                colleges and universities, WRP creates a database for Federal and
                select private-sector employers nationwide to find highly motivated
                college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager
                to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer or
                permanent jobs. Candidates represent all majors, and range from college
                freshmen to graduate students and law students. Information from these
                candidates is compiled in a searchable database that is available
                through this website to Federal Human Resources Specialists, Equal
                Employment Opportunity Specialists, and other Federal employees and
                hiring officials in Federal agencies. For additional substantive
                information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the
                Federal Register on March 24, 2021 (86 FR 15713).
                 This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency
                generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and
                the public is generally not required to respond to an information
                collection, unless the OMB approves it 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
                OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.
                 DOL seeks PRA authorization for this information collection for
                three (3) years. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than
                three (3) years without renewal. The DOL notes that information
                collection requirements submitted to the OMB for existing ICRs receive
                a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
