Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request, 7291-7292 [08-530]

Download as PDF 7291 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 26 / Thursday, February 7, 2008 / Notices Data collected under DSEHS will complement information gathered under the Survey of Early Head Start Programs (SEHSP), OMB Control No. 0992–0008. SEHSP gathered information on the management systems, services, and characteristics of children and families served by EHS programs. To complement this information, DSEHS will gather information on the needs and characteristics of children and families enrolled in EHS programs, including an assessment of children’s and families’ needs, how programs meet the needs of children and families in EHS programs, and how children and families in EHS programs progress over time. The activity proposed under this notice includes only the data collected during the selection and recruitment of programs to participate in DSEHS and a pilot study on the feasibility of proposed measures. To select and recruit programs, ACF intends to send letters to program directors of selected EHS programs. Directors will receive a summary of the study goals that will include an overview of the design and data collection, a brochure describing the study, and examples of the consent materials for enrolling study participants. Programs will not be asked to enroll participants during the initial selection and recruitment phase. Selected programs may also receive a follow-up phone call to answer questions from EHS directors or staff. Program directors will be asked to provide information on the numbers of families enrolled with children who will be within two months of the target ages at the time of each of the four fall data collections. ACF intends to conduct a feasibility pilot study at two EHS programs in June 2008. In the pilot study, ACF will test the feasibility of administering various direct child assessment measures and parent interviews. Respondents: EHS Program Directors, parents, and Children.

OMB No.: 0970–0303. Description: The National Clearinghouse on Child Abuse and Neglect Information (NCCAN) and the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse (NAIC) received OMB approval to collect data for a customer satisfaction evaluation under OMB control number 0970–0303. On June 20, 2006, NCCAN and NAIC were consolidated into Child Welfare Information Gateway (CWIG). In response to this consolidation, the proposed information collection activities include revisions to the Customer Satisfaction Evaluation approved under OMB control number 0970–0303. CWIG is a service of the Children’s Bureau, a component within the Administration for Children and Families, and CWIG is 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. CWIG’s 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. A number of vehicles are employed to accomplish these activities, including, but not limited to, Web site hosting, discussions with customers, and dissemination of publications (both print and electronic). The Customer Satisfaction Evaluation 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, CWIG’s evaluation is designed to better understand the kind and quality of services customers want, as well as customers’ level of satisfaction with existing services. The proposed data collection activities for the evaluation include customer satisfaction surveys, customer comment cards, selected publication surveys, and focus groups.
