Council Charter.

I. Background and Authority
Section 166(i)(4) of the Workforce
Innovation and Opportunity Act, 29
U.S.C. 3221(i)(4) requires the Secretary
of Labor (Secretary) to establish and
maintain the NAETC. The statute, as
amended, requires the Secretary, to
formally consult at least twice annually
with the NAETC on the operation and
administration of the WIOA Section 166
Indian and Native American
Employment and Training programs. In
addition, the NAETC advises the
Secretary on matters that promote the
employment and training needs of
Indians and Native Americans, as well
as to enhance the quality of life in
accordance with the Indian Self-
Determination and Education
Assistance Act. The NAETC also
provides guidance to the Secretary on
how to make DOL discretionary funding
and other special initiatives more
accessible to federally recognized tribes,
Alaska Native entities, and Native
Hawaiian organizations.
II. Structure
The Council will be composed of no
less than 15 members, but no more than
20, appointed by the Secretary, who are
representatives of Indian tribes, tribal
organizations, Alaska Native entities,
Indian-controlled organizations serving
Indians, or Native Hawaiian
organizations pursuant to WIOA Section
166(i)(4)(B). The membership of the
Council will, to the extent practicable,
represent all geographic areas of the
United States with a substantial Indian,
Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian
population, and will include
representatives of tribal governments
and of non-reservation Native American
organizations that have expertise in the
areas of workforce development,
secondary and post-secondary
education, health care, business and
economic development, and job sectors
Each NAETC member will be
appointed for a two-year term. A
vacancy occurring in the Council
membership will be filled in the same
manner as the original appointment. A
member appointed to a vacancy on the
Council will serve for the remainder of
the term for which the predecessor of
that member was appointed. Members
of NAETC will serve on a voluntary and
generally uncompensated basis, but will
be reimbursed for travel expenses to
attend NAETC meetings, including per
diem in lieu of subsistence, as
authorized by the Federal travel
regulations. All NAETC members will
serve at the pleasure of the Secretary.
Members may be appointed,
reappointed, or replaced, and their
terms may be extended, changed, or
terminated at the Secretary’s discretion.

: DOL, as
part of continuing efforts to reduce
paperwork and respondent burden,
conducts a pre-clearance consultation
program to provide the general public
and Federal agencies an opportunity to
comment on proposed and/or
continuing collections of information
before submitting them to the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for final
approval. This program helps to ensure
requested data can be provided in the
desired format, reporting burden (time
and financial resources) is minimized,
collection instruments are clearly
understood, and the impact of collection
requirements can be properly assessed.
The ETA 5159 report contains
monthly information on claims and
payment activities, including the
number of initial claims, first payments,
weeks claimed, weeks compensated,
benefit payments, and final payments.
These data are used in budgetary and
administrative planning, program
evaluation, actuarial estimates, program
research, and reports to Congress and
the public. Section 303(a)(6) of the
Social Security Act authorizes this
information collection.
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 it is
approved by OMB under the PRA and
displays a currently valid OMB Control
