Proposed Project: Voluntary Customer Satisfaction Surveys to Implement Executive Order 12862 in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)—(OMB No. 0930–0197)—Revision Executive Order 12862 directs agencies that ‘‘provide significant services directly to the public’’ to ‘‘survey customers to determine the improvements that are practical and feasible. Several of the customer satisfaction surveys expected to be implemented under this approval will provide data for measurement of program effectiveness under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). Information from these customer surveys will be used to plan and redirect resources and efforts to improve or maintain a high quality of service to health care providers and members of the public. Focus groups may be used to develop the survey questionnaire in some instances. The estimated annual hour burden is as follows: kind and quality of services they want and their level of satisfaction with existing services.’’ SAMHSA provides significant services directly to the public, including treatment providers and State substance abuse and mental health agencies, through a range of mechanisms, including publications, training, meetings, technical assistance and Web sites. Many of these services are focused on information dissemination activities. The purpose of this submission is to extend the existing generic approval for such surveys. The primary use for information gathered is to identify strengths and weaknesses in current service provisions by SAMHSA and to make Number of respondents Type of data collection Responses/ respondent Hours/ response Total hours Focus groups ...................................................................................................

ACTION: Notice of Decommission for System of Records. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), US–VISIT Program, conducted a proof of concept (POC) for Increment 2C (70 FR 39300, US–VISIT Privacy Impact Assessment, July 7, 2005) to assess the capability of automatically, passively, and remotely recording the entry and exit of US– VISIT covered individuals at U.S. land border ports of entry (POEs) using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)-enabled I–94 (Arrival/Departure) Forms. To support the US–VISIT Increment 2C POC, the Automated Identification Management System (AIDMS) was created to link the unique and VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:34 May 24, 2007 Jkt 211001 individually-assigned RFID tag number to existing biographic information received from the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS) and the entry and exit event information for each covered individual crossing the land border. The AIDMS maintained four general categories of records: traveler (i.e., covered individual) identification information, RFID tag related information, RFID tag read event information, and border crossing history information. The traveler identification information and the border crossing history information were duplicative of information stored in TECS and the Arrival/Departure Information System (ADIS). The RFID tag information was comprised of data collected about the issuance and status of the Form I–94 as well as data associated with the reading of an RFID tag. On November 7, 2006, US–VISIT concluded the Increment 2C POC. Upon completion of the estimated one year POC (as noted in the US–VISIT Notice published August 4, 2005, 70 FR 44934), AIDMS has been decommissioned because data is no longer being collected or stored in the system. All data previously stored in AIDMS will be deleted/destroyed 30 days after publication of this notice and in accordance with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) General Records Schedule (GRS) 20, Item 1.a. The AIDMS SORN was previously published in the Federal Register on July 5, 2005, at 70 FR 38700. A Privacy Impact Assessment regarding this decommission has been published at http://www.dhs.gov/privacy. The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of the termination of AIDMS on June 25, 2007. Disposition: In accordance with NARA GRS 20, Item 1.a, the data collected and stored in AIDMS will be deleted/destroyed 30 days after publication of this notice.
