OMB No.: 0970–0372. Description: The National Independent Study of the State Developmental Disabilities Programs (National Study) is an independent (non-biased) study to examine through rigorous and comprehensive research procedures the three programs funded under the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (DD Act): (1) State Councils on Developmental Disabilities (SCDDs); (2) State Protection and Advocacy Systems for Individuals with developmental disabilities (P&As); and (3) University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs). The purpose of the study is to assess program effectiveness and achievements, including collaborative efforts among these state developmental disabilities (DD) network programs. A component of the study will be an examination of the Administration on Developmental Disabilities’ efficiency and effectiveness to support these DD Network programs. The results of this evaluation will provide a report to the Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) (the agency that administers these programs) with information on the effectiveness of its programs and policies and serve as a way for ADD to promote accountability to the public. The independent study is a response to accountability requirements for ADD as identified in the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (DD Act), the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, and the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART), previously administered by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). ADD has OMB approval for all the evaluation tools (e.g., data collection instruments) for this study, except a new one being proposed. The new evaluation tool would be an on-line survey tool designed to collect data for an assessment of ADD. Respondents: For the ADD assessment survey being added, the respondents would be Staff of State Councils on Developmental Disabilities, State Protection and Advocacy Systems for Individuals with developmental disabilities, and University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Education, Research, and Service.
