OMB No.: 0970–0204 (current). Description: The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) requests an extension of the current survey—without change—for three additional fiscal years (FY 2006–2008). States are required, on an annual basis, to provide OCSE with program data on projects that have been funded through the Grants to States for Access and Visitation Program. This program reporting requirement includes, but is not limited to, the collection of data on the number of participants served, referral sources, kinds of services delivered, identification of local service providers, and the number of noncustodial parents whose parenting time increased as a result of participating in such services. The purpose of collecting this information is twofold: (1) To help OCSE monitor state utilization of grant funds; and (2) to compile data, on an annual basis, into a report that provides states—in addition to the general public—with information on individual state Access and Visitation Program in an effort to promote cross-fertilization of innovative services at the local level. Respondents: State Child Access and Visitation Program Coordinators and administrators of state, court and/or local service providers.

Description: The National Clearinghouse on Child Abuse and Neglect Information (CAN) and the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse (NAIC), services of the Children’s Bureau within ACF, were established in 1974 and 1986, respectively. Both are dedicated to the mission of connecting professionals and concerned citizens to information on programs, research, legislation, and statistics regarding the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families. The Clearinghouses’ main functions are identifying information needs, locating and acquiring information, creating information, organizing and storing information, disseminating information, and facilitating information exchange among professionals and concerned citizens.

The Clearinghouses’ Customer Satisfaction Evaluation Plan was initiated in response to Executive Order 12862 issued on September 11, 1993. The order calls for putting customers first and striving for a customer-driven government that matches or exceeds the best service available in the private sector. To that end, the Clearinghouses’ Evaluation Plan was designed to better understand customers’ needs and measure success in meeting those needs by obtaining input and feedback directly from customers. This feedback will be used to improve the quality of Clearinghouse products and services, in turn allowing limited resources to be targeted to improve those components that have the most impact on customer satisfaction. Information will be collected using close-ended electronic, telephone, paper and pencil, and inperson administration methods. In addition to the above quantitative component of the evaluation plan, focus groups will be conducted with CAN and NAIC customers on a yearly basis to supplement the customer satisfaction surveys with a qualitative component. Respondents: General customers are those who interact with the Clearinghouses via Web, e-mail, and telephone. Targeted customers are those to which selected services are delivered, such as subscribers to Children’s Bureau Express (an online digest), recipients of E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 160 / Friday, August 19, 2005 / Notices 48773 selected publications, and focus group participants.

in 1974 and 1986, respectively. Both are dedicated to the mission of

    The Clearinghouses' main functions are identifying information

activities, including, but not limited to, Web site hosting, 
discussions with customers, and dissemination of publications (both

    The Clearinghouses' Customer Satisfaction Evaluation Plan was 
initiated in response to Executive Order 12862 issued on September 11, 
1993. The order calls for putting customers first and striving for a
