To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276– 1243. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Proposed Project: SAMHSA Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Center for Excellence Project CHOICES Evaluation—New Since 2001, SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention has been operating the SAMHSA Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Center for Excellence. The purpose of the FASD Center for Excellence is to prevent and improve the treatment of FASD. Some of the activities of the FASD Center include providing training, technical assistance, and subcontracts to increase the use of effective evidence-based interventions. The FASD Center will be integrating the Project CHOICES program through service delivery organizations and will be evaluating the results. Six sites will implement Project CHOICES with nonpregnant women 18–44 years who are sexually active and who are participating in alcohol treatment (residential or outpatient) or in drug treatment (if the women also use alcohol). Women in substance abuse treatment will be screened and those women that meet the above description will be provided four Motivational Interviewing (MI) sessions (related to alcohol use), plus one contraceptive counseling session. The goal is to help these women prevent an alcoholexposed pregnancy by abstaining from alcohol and using contraceptive methods of their choice consistently and correctly. At baseline, an assessment tool will be administered by the counselor to assess drinking, sexual activity, contraceptive use, and demographic information. At the end of the program, women are assessed on their alcohol consumption and contraceptive use in the past 30 days. At 6 months and 12 months after the end of the program, women are assessed on alcohol consumption and contraceptive use using the same core assessment tool used at baseline. All participating sites will maintain personal identification on their clients for service delivery purposes but no such information will be transmitted to SAMHSA. The data collection is designed to evaluate the implementation of Project CHOICES by measuring whether abstinence from alcohol is achieved and effective birth control practices are performed. Furthermore, the project will include process measures to assess whether and how the intervention was provided.

ACTION: Notice of Privacy Act system of records. SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security is giving notice that it proposes to consolidate three legacy record systems: Treasury/CS.053 Confidential Source Identification File, Treasury/CS.058 Cooperating Individual Files, and Treasury/CS.122 Information Received File into a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) system of records notice titled Confidential and Other Sources of Information (COSI). Categories of individuals, categories of records, and the routine uses of these legacy system of records notices have been consolidated and updated to better reflect ICE COSI record systems. Additionally, DHS is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) concurrent with this SORN elsewhere in the Federal Register. The exemptions for the legacy system of records notices will continue to be applicable until the final rule for this SORN has been completed. This system will be included in the Department’s inventory of record systems. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:00 Dec 08, 2008 Jkt 217001 DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before January 8, 2009.

Background Pursuant to the savings clause in the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 107–296, Section 1512, 116 Stat. 2310 (November 25, 2002), the DHS and its component agency ICE have relied on preexisting Privacy Act systems of records notices for the collection and maintenance of records pertaining to information received from confidential and other sources. As a law enforcement investigatory agency, ICE collects and maintains information regarding possible violations of law from a PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total burden hours per collection number of sources, including confidential sources, State, local, tribal and Federal law enforcement agencies, and members of the public. As part of its efforts to streamline and consolidate its record systems, DHS is establishing a component system of records under the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) for ICE to cover these records. This new system of records will allow ICE to collect and maintain records concerning the identities of and information received from documented confidential sources and other sources who supply information to ICE regarding possible violations of law or otherwise in support of law enforcement investigations and activities. In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, DHS is giving notice that it proposes to consolidate three legacy record systems: Treasury/CS.053 Confidential Source Identification File (66 FR 52984 October 18, 2001), Treasury/CS.058 Cooperating Individual Files (66 FR 52984 October 18, 2001), and Treasury/CS.122 Information Received File (66 FR 52984 October 18, 2001), into a DHS/ICE system of records notice titled, United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Information, and Confidential Sources. Categories of individuals, categories of records, and the routine uses of these legacy system of records notices have been consolidated and updated to better reflect the DHS/ICE Information, and Confidential Sources record systems. Additionally, DHS is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) concurrent with this SORN elsewhere in the Federal Register. The exemptions for the legacy system of records notices will continue to be applicable until the final rule for this SORN has been completed. This system will be included in the Department’s inventory of record systems. II.

and improve the treatment of FASD. Some of the activities of the FASD 
Center include providing training, technical assistance, and 
subcontracts to increase the use of effective evidence-based 
interventions.
    The FASD Center will be integrating the Project CHOICES program 
through service delivery organizations and will be evaluating the 
results. Six sites will implement Project CHOICES with nonpregnant 
women 18-44 years who are sexually active and who are participating in 
alcohol treatment (residential or outpatient) or in drug treatment (if 
the women also use alcohol). Women in substance abuse treatment will be 
screened and those women that meet the above description will be 
provided four Motivational Interviewing (MI) sessions (related to 
alcohol use), plus one contraceptive counseling session. The goal is to 
help these women prevent an alcohol-exposed pregnancy by abstaining

    The data collection is designed to evaluate the implementation of

Furthermore, the project will include process measures to assess
