Download as PDF 31496 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 106 / Monday, June 2, 2008 / Notices specific epidemiological, health service use, judicial and/or environmental data. Activities may include: Training and educating state and local law enforcement officials, prevention and education officials, members of community anti-drug coalitions, and parents on the signs of methamphetamine abuse and addiction and the options for prevention; planning, administration, and educational activities related to the prevention of methamphetamine abuse and addiction; monitoring and evaluating of methamphetamine prevention activities, and reporting and disseminating resulting information to the public; or conducting and evaluating targeted pilot programs. The grantees will be collecting data on the approved National Outcomes Measures (NOMs) —OMB No. 0930– 0230—and program specific questions on youth and adults Methamphetamine use. There are two surveys: One for adults ages 18 and older and another for youths under the age of 18. The adult and youth surveys contain 40 and 42 questions respectively with the first 12 questions covering the OMB approved NOMs questions. The focus areas for the adult surveys comprise of attitudes toward tobacco, alcohol, and other substances; attitudes and experiences; family relationships, relationships with those around you; future goals; thoughts, beliefs, and experiences related to methamphetamines; and thoughts on possible effects of methamphetamine use. The youth survey focus areas include: General information; attitudes toward tobacco, alcohol, and other substances; attitudes and experiences; family relationships; school experiences; perceived probability to try substances; where they receive substance abuse information; thoughts, beliefs, and experiences relating to methamphetamine; effects of methamphetamine use; and how comfortable they were with answering the survey questions. Additional nonmethamphetamine related questions are included to identify risk and protective factors for methamphetamine. These questions identify demographic information which will be useful in categorizing results. Some program specific questions were suggested and agreed upon by the grantees in the review of the survey. All applicants must describe their evaluation plans in their applications, and funded grantees are required to conduct an evaluation of their projects. The evaluation should be designed to provide regular feedback in order to facilitate project improvements. The evaluation must include both process and outcome components which must measure change relating to project goals and objectives over time compared to baseline information. Control or comparison groups are not required. Applicants must consider their evaluation plans when preparing the project budget. The grantees will collect data from program participants at three time periods: Baseline, exit, and 6month follow-up. Each Number of respondents Survey Methamphetamine grantee will collect program specific questions in addition to NOM questions. Similar to the submission process for the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA), grantees will submit their NOM–Meth data to their respective program Project Officers as well as to the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention’s (CSAP) Data Coordination and Consolidation Center (DCCC) two times per year. The OMB approved NOMs incorporate the GPRA measures for reporting and are approved for all PRNS. DCCC will be responsible for data collection and analysis across grantee sites, while individual grantees will be responsible for their own analyses. The burden is greatly reduced by the fact that the data collection process can be conducted by submitting electronic files. In many cases, some programs can collect all data online. The SAMHSA Prevention Platform has publicly available online data collection and reporting tools such as the database builder, which can be used to meet these reporting requirements. Other tools are under development. CSAP is currently developing a web-based data entry tool that will assist grantees in submitting their data electronically. This data entry tool will reduce the burden on those grantees that do not yet have the capacity to submit large batch files. The DCCC will use this data for secondary analysis that will aid CSAP in responding to GPRA, Office of National Drug Control Policy as well as other federal reporting requirements.
