OMB No. New Collection Description: The 1994 Amendments to the Social Security Act (SSA) authorize the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to review State child and family service programs to ensure conformance with the requirements in titles IV–B and IV–E of SSA. Under the final Rule, which took effect March 25, 2000, States are assessed for substantial conformity with certain Federal requirements for childwelfare services. The Child and Family Service Reviews (CFSR), administered by the Children’s Bureau, are designed to ensure conformity with Federal childwelfare requirements and, ultimately, to help States improve child-welfare services and outcomes, specifically safety, permanency and well-being outcomes for child-welfare-involved children and their families. States determined not to have achieved substantial conformity in any of the areas assessed are required to develop and implement Program Improvement Plans (PIP) addressing the areas of nonconformity. The Systems of Care grant cluster, from which these data are proposed to be collected, is designed to encourage public child-welfare agencies to address the issues identified in their State’s CFSR. Although Systems of Care has shown promise in working with various at-risk and family populations, it has not been applied to a child-welfare target population. The data collected from these demonstration sites will allow the Children’s Bureau to test whether this approach can help States reach the goals stated in their PIP and explore how child-welfare can benefit from being part of a system of care. Data will be collected via interviews, forms completed by project staff, surveys, focus groups and case-file reviews. Data also will be collected to determine the extent to which the Technical Assistance (A) provided, brokered or contracted by the TA and Evaluation Center is meeting the needs of the grantees, and how. Respondents: Systems of Care Project Directors (members of the Systems of Care collaborative may include representatives from mental health, juvenile justice, education, health, among others); child-welfare agency supervisors and caseworkers; partner agency caseworkers, and families who have been involved with the childwelfare system.

Each device manufacturer or importer under § 806.10 shall submit a written report to FDA of any action initiated to correct or remove a device to reduce a risk to health posed by the device, or to remedy a violation of the act caused by the device which may present a risk to health, within 10 working days of initiating such correction or removal. Each device manufacturer or importer of a device who initiates a correction or removal of a device that is not required to be reported to FDA under § 806.20 shall keep a record of such correction or removal. The information collected in the reports of corrections and removals will be used by FDA to identify marketed devices that have serious problems and to ensure that defective devices are removed from the market. This will assure that FDA has current and complete information regarding these corrections and removals and to determine whether recall action is adequate.

    Title: Evaluation of the Improving Child Welfare Outcome through 
Systems of Care Grant Program.

OMB No. New Collection

    Description: The 1994 Amendments to the Social Security Act (SSA) 
authorize the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to review 
State child and family service programs to ensure conformance with the 
requirements in titles IV-B and IV-E of SSA. Under the final Rule, 
which took effect March 25, 2000, States are assessed for substantial 
conformity with certain Federal requirements for child-welfare 
services. The Child and Family Service Reviews (CFSR), administered by 
the Children's Bureau, are designed to ensure conformity with Federal 
child-welfare requirements and, ultimately, to help States improve 
child-welfare services and outcomes, specifically safety, permanency 
and well-being outcomes for child-welfare-involved children and their 
families. States determined not to have achieved substantial conformity 
in any of the areas assessed are required to develop and implement 
Program Improvement Plans (PIP) addressing the areas of nonconformity.
    The Systems of Care grant cluster, from which these data are 
proposed to be collected, is designed to encourage public child-welfare 
agencies to address the issues identified in their State's CFSR. 
Although Systems of Care has shown promise in working with various at-
risk and family populations, it has not been applied to a child-welfare 
target population. The data collected from these demonstration sites 
will allow the Children's Bureau to test whether this approach can help 
States reach the goals stated in their PIP and explore how child-
welfare can benefit from being part of a system of care. Data will be 
collected via interviews, forms completed by project staff, surveys, 
focus groups and case-file reviews. Data also will be collected to 
determine the extent to which the Technical Assistance (A) provided, 
brokered or contracted by the TA and Evaluation Center is meeting the 
needs of the grantees, and how.
    Respondents: Systems of Care Project Directors (members of the 
Systems of Care collaborative may include representatives from mental 
health, juvenile justice, education, health, among others); child-
welfare agency supervisors and caseworkers; partner agency caseworkers, 
and families who have been involved with the child-welfare system.
