In the interest of security, NIH has instituted stringent procedures for entrance onto the NIH campus. All visitor vehicles, including taxicabs, hotel, and airport shuttles will be inspected before being allowed on campus. Visitors will be asked to show one form of identification (for example, a government-issued photo ID, driver’s license, or passport) and to state the purpose of their visit.

OMB’s ‘‘Mandatory Information Requirements for Federal Assistance Program Announcements’’ (45 FR 39592, June 11, 1980) requires a statement concerning the official government programs contained in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. Normally NIH lists in its announcements the number and title of affected individual programs for the guidance of the public. Because the guidance in this notice covers virtually every NIH and Federal research program in which DNA recombinant molecule techniques could be used, it has been determined not to be cost effective or in the public interest to attempt to list these programs. Such a list would likely require several additional pages. In addition, NIH could not be certain that every Federal program would be included as many Federal agencies, as well as private organizations, both national and international, have elected to follow the NIH Guidelines. In lieu of the individual program listing, NIH invites readers to direct questions to the information address above about whether individual programs listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance are affected.

This contract is an evaluation of SAMHSA’s State Incentive Grants to Build Capacity for Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion. These grants are designed to promote the implementation and evaluation of best practice approaches to reducing the use of restraint and seclusion in mental health facilities.

These include facilities serving adults and those serving children and/or adolescents, with various subgroups such as forensic and sexual offender populations. With input from multiple experts in the field of restraint and seclusion and alternatives to restraint and seclusion, the project created a common core of data collection instruments that will be used for this cross-site project. The facilities will complete three different instruments over a 3-year time period: (1) Facility/Program Characteristics Inventory (information about type of facilities, characteristics of persons served, staffing patterns, and unit specific data); (2) Inventory of Seclusion and Restraint Reduction Interventions; (3) Seclusion and Restraint Event Data Matrix (data about restraint and seclusion rates within facilities and units). Data will be submitted by the sites electronically via a secured Web site. The Facility/Program Characteristics Inventory and Inventory of Seclusion and Restraint Reduction Intervention will be collected annually. The Seclusion and Restraint Event Data Matrix will be collected monthly. The resulting data will help to identify the: (1) Number of programs adopting best practices involving alternative approaches to restraint and seclusion; and (2) program’s impact of reducing restraint and seclusion use and adoption of alternative practices.

Capacity for Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion (OMB No. 0930-
0271)--Revision
    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services has funded a Data Collection 
and Analysis for the Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion Grant 
Program. This contract is an evaluation of SAMHSA's State Incentive 
Grants to Build Capacity for Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion. 
These grants are designed to promote the implementation and evaluation 
of best practice approaches to reducing the use of restraint and 
seclusion in mental health facilities. Grantees consist of 8 sites 
(state mental health agencies), all of which will be implementing 
interventions in multiple facilities (a total of 21 facilities). These 
include facilities serving adults and those serving children and/or 
adolescents, with various subgroups such as forensic and sexual 
offender populations.
    With input from multiple experts in the field of restraint and 
seclusion and alternatives to restraint and seclusion, the project 
created a common core of data collection instruments that will be used 
for this cross-site project. The facilities will complete three 
different instruments over a 3-year time period: (1) Facility/Program 
Characteristics Inventory (information about type of facilities, 
characteristics of persons served, staffing patterns, and unit specific 
data); (2) Inventory of Seclusion and Restraint Reduction 
Interventions; (3) Seclusion and Restraint Event Data Matrix (data 
about restraint and seclusion rates within facilities and units). Data 
will be submitted by the sites electronically via a secured Web site.
    The Facility/Program Characteristics Inventory and Inventory of 
Seclusion and Restraint Reduction Intervention will be collected 
annually. The Seclusion and Restraint Event Data Matrix will be 
collected monthly.
    The resulting data will help to identify the: (1) Number of 
programs adopting best practices involving alternative approaches to 
restraint and seclusion; and (2) program's impact of reducing restraint 
and seclusion use and adoption of alternative practices. The estimated 
maximal annual response burden to collect this information is by grant 
year.
