Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 37411-37412 [05-12821]

Download as PDF 37411 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 124 / Wednesday, June 29, 2005 / Notices agencies, and other interested parties were discussed in detail at a public meeting held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on April 27, 2004. On the basis of comments received, VSP staff drafted a third revised manual that was discussed at a public meeting held in Fort Lauderdale on August 23–26, 2004. Input from the cruise ship industry was critical of this document. VSP revised the document and incorporated the comments received from the cruise ship industry, private sanitation consultants, and other interested parties who attended the public meetings or submitted comments in writing. A final draft of the VSP Operations Manual, 2005 was put on the VSP Web site (http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp) and was presented to attendees at the VSP annual public meeting held in Fort Lauderdale on April 26, 2005. VSP acknowledges the helpful participation and the input of the cruise ship industry, private sanitation consultants, and other interested parties throughout the revision process. Major input for this document was provided by the International Council of Cruise Lines (ICCL), which represents the 16 largest passenger cruise lines that call on major ports in the U.S. and abroad. Implementation and Transition for the VSP Operations Manual, 2005 The VSP Operations Manual, 2005 will become effective on August 1, 2005. At that time, the VSP Environmental Health Officers will begin using the new manual and inspection report when they conduct their routine operational inspections. For one year or for two routine inspections, whichever comes first, VSP staff will document deficiencies that indicate noncompliance with the 2005 operations manual. However, no points will be deducted for failure to meet the revised provisions in the 2005 manual. During the phase-in period, these deficiencies will be cited with a star on the inspection report, and no points will be deducted so that corrective actions can be taken. One example of the new requirements in the 2005 manual is that hand wash sinks with the electronic sensors that cannot be user-adjusted have a maximum water temperature of 52 °C (125 °F). The VSP Operations Manual, 2000 required only a minimum water temperature for the sinks with the sensors. For the first year or for two routine inspections, whichever comes first, inspectors will document water temperatures above the maximum at the handwash sinks with the sensors, but the item will be cited with a star on the inspection report, and no points will be deducted. Applicability The VSP Operations Manual is applicable to all passenger cruise vessels that have international itineraries and that call on U.S. Ports. Availability Final copies of the VSP Operations Manual, 2005 can be found on the VSP Web site at http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/ vsp; by contacting Stephanie Lawrence, Program Management Assistant for the Vessel Sanitation Program, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Mail stop F23, 4770 Buford Highway NE., Atlanta, GA 30341–3274; or by email at SLawrence1@cdc.gov.

Under the Final Rule, which took effective 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 program improvement plans 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 (TA) provided, brokered or contracted by the TA and Evaluation Center is meeting the needs of the grantees, and how.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    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 the SSA. Under the Final Rule, 
which took effective 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 program improvement plans 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 
(TA) 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.
