The field of laboratory medicine is undergoing rapid change with the continuing introduction of new tests, increased focus on evidence-based medicine, the deployment of Electronic Health Records, and the wide availability to physicians of electronic information resources, interactive diagnostic tools, and computerized order entry systems. To date, no systematic study has been conducted to investigate how physicians are incorporating these laboratory testing innovations into their day-to-day practices. This survey seeks to provide insight into how physicians integrate laboratory medicine into their routines, and how they manage any challenges they encounter. The survey will be conducted in 2011, following OMB approval, in a national representative sample of primary care physicians. The table below reports the combined total number of respondents for the 2011 survey. There are no costs to respondents except their time.

Description: Content Changes: The 60-day Federal Register Notice published on October 22, 2010 (Federal Register Vol. 75, No. 204, pages 65352– 65353) proposed to continue the use of the current post-expenditure reporting form with one change. The proposed change was a modification of the column titled, Expenditures of All Other Federal, State, and Local Funds of Part A of the form. States would have been required to report the same information as on the current OMB-approved post expenditure reporting form in a slightly different format. The column currently requires States to provide data on the total amount of Federal, State, and local funds spent in providing each service. The proposed modification would have separated this column into two subcolumns. One subcolumn would have required States to report expenditures of Federal funds used to support each service. The second subcolumn would have required States to report expenditures of State and local funds used to support each VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:16 Feb 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 service. The instructions for the postexpenditure reporting form would have been revised to reflect this modification. Based on feedback from several States, it was decided not to proceed with this proposed change. Therefore, the current request seeks approval to continue using the current OMB approved post-expenditure reporting form (OMB No. 09700834) Description: Purpose: To request approval to: (1) Extend the collection of postexpenditure data using the current OMB approved post-expenditure reporting form (OMB No. 0970–0234) past the current expiration date of July 31, 2011; (2) request that States voluntarily use the post-expenditure reporting form to estimate expenditures and recipients, by service category, as part of the required annual intended use plan. The Social Services Block Grant program (SSBG) provides funds to assist States in delivering critical services to vulnerable older adults; persons with disabilities; at-risk adolescents and young adults; and children and families. Funds are allocated to the States in proportion to their populations. States have substantial discretion in their use of funds and may determine what services will be provided, who will be eligible, and how funds will be distributed among the various services. State or local SSBG agencies (i.e., county, city, regional offices) may provide the services or may purchase them from qualified agencies, organizations, or individuals. States report as recipients of SSBG-funded services any individuals who receive a service funded, in whole or in part, by SSBG. States are required to report their annual SSBG expenditures in a postexpenditure report, using the current OMB approved post- PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total burden (in hrs) expenditure reporting form. The current form includes a yearly total of adults and children served and annual expenditures in each of 29 service categories. The annual report is to be submitted within six months of the end of the period covered by the report, and must address: (1) The number of individuals (including number of children and number of adults) who receive services paid for, in whole or in part, with Federal funds under the SSBG; (2) The amount of SSBG funds spent in providing each service; (3) The total amount of Federal, State, and local funds spent in providing each service, including SSBG funds; and (4) The method(s) by which each service is provided, showing separately the services provided by public and private agencies. These reporting requirements can be found at 45 CFR 96.74. This request seeks approval to continue the use of the current postexpenditure reporting form with no changes. Information collected in the postexpenditure reports submitted by States is analyzed and described in an annual report on SSBG expenditures and recipients produced by the Office of community Services (OCS), Administration for children and Families (ACF). The information contained in this report is used for program planning and management. The data establish how SSBG funding is used for the provision of services in each State to each of many specific populations of needy individuals. Federal regulation and reporting requirements for the SSBG also require each State to develop and submit an annual intended use plan that describes how the State plans to administer its SSBG funds for the coming year. This report is to be submitted 30 days prior to the start of the fiscal year (June 1 if E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1 6798 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 26 / Tuesday, February 8, 2011 / Notices the State operates on a July–June fiscal year, or September 1 if the State operates on a Federal fiscal year). No specific format is required for the intended use plan. The intended use of SSBG funds—including the types of activities to be supported and the categories and characteristics of individuals to be served—must be provided. States vary greatly in the information they provide and the structure of the report. States are required to submit a revised intended use plan if the planned use of SSBG funds changes during the year. In order to provide a more accurate analysis of the extent to which funds are spent ‘‘in a manner consistent’’ with each of the States’ plan for their use, as required by 42 USC 1397e(a), we are requesting that States voluntarily use the format of the post-expenditure reporting form to provide estimates of the amount of expenditures and the number of recipients, by service category, that the State plans to use SSBG funds to support as part of the intended use plan. Many States are already using the format of the postexpenditure reporting form as part of their intended use plan. Respondents: The post-expenditure reporting form and intended use plan are completed once annually by a representative of the agency that administers the Social Services Block Grant at the State level in each State.

Submission for OMB review; comment request

    Title: Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) Post-expenditure Report.
    OMB No.: 0970-0234.
    Description:
    Content Changes:
    The 60-day Federal Register Notice published on October 22, 2010 
(Federal Register Vol. 75, No. 204, pages 65352-65353) proposed to 
continue the use of the current post-expenditure reporting form with 
one change. The proposed change was a modification of the column 
titled, Expenditures of All Other Federal, State, and Local Funds of 
Part A of the form. States would have been required to report the same 
information as on the current OMB-approved post expenditure reporting 
form in a slightly different format.
    The column currently requires States to provide data on the total 
amount of Federal, State, and local funds spent in providing each 
service. The proposed modification would have separated this column 
into two subcolumns. One subcolumn would have required States to report 
expenditures of Federal funds used to support each service. The second 
subcolumn would have required States to report expenditures of State 
and local funds used to support each service. The instructions for the 
post-expenditure reporting form would have been revised to reflect this 
modification.
    Based on feedback from several States, it was decided not to 
proceed with this proposed change. Therefore, the current request seeks 
approval to continue using the current OMB approved post-expenditure 
reporting form (OMB No. 09700834)
    Description:
    Purpose: To request approval to: (1) Extend the collection of post-
expenditure data using the current OMB approved post-expenditure 
reporting form (OMB No. 0970-0234) past the current expiration date of 
July 31, 2011; (2) request that States voluntarily use the post-
expenditure reporting form to estimate expenditures and recipients, by 
service category, as part of the required annual intended use plan.
    The Social Services Block Grant program (SSBG) provides funds to 
assist States in delivering critical services to vulnerable older 
adults; persons with disabilities; at-risk adolescents and young 
adults; and children and families. Funds are allocated to the States in 
proportion to their populations. States have substantial discretion in 
their use of funds and may determine what services will be provided, 
who will be eligible, and how funds will be distributed among the 
various services. State or local SSBG agencies (i.e., county, city, 
regional offices) may provide the services or may purchase them from 
qualified agencies, organizations, or individuals. States report as 
recipients of SSBG-funded services any individuals who receive a 
service funded, in whole or in part, by SSBG.
    States are required to report their annual SSBG expenditures in a 
postexpenditure report, using the current OMB approved post-expenditure 
reporting form. The current form includes a yearly total of adults and 
children served and annual expenditures in each of 29 service 
categories. The annual report is to be submitted within six months of 
the end of the period covered by the report, and must address: (1) The 
number of individuals (including number of children and number of 
adults) who receive services paid for, in whole or in part, with 
Federal funds under the SSBG; (2) The amount of SSBG funds spent in 
providing each service; (3) The total amount of Federal, State, and 
local funds spent in providing each service, including SSBG funds; and 
(4) The method(s) by which each service is provided, showing separately 
the services provided by public and private agencies. These reporting 
requirements can be found at 45 CFR 96.74.
    This request seeks approval to continue the use of the current 
postexpenditure reporting form with no changes. Information collected 
in the postexpenditure reports submitted by States is analyzed and 
described in an annual report on SSBG expenditures and recipients 
produced by the Office of community Services (OCS), Administration for 
children and Families (ACF). The information contained in this report 
is used for program planning and management. The data establish how 
SSBG funding is used for the provision of services in each State to 
each of many specific populations of needy individuals.
    Federal regulation and reporting requirements for the SSBG also 
require each State to develop and submit an annual intended use plan 
that describes how the State plans to administer its SSBG funds for the 
coming year. This report is to be submitted 30 days prior to the start 
of the fiscal year (June 1 if

[[Page 6798]]

the State operates on a July-June fiscal year, or September 1 if the 
State operates on a Federal fiscal year). No specific format is 
required for the intended use plan. The intended use of SSBG funds--
including the types of activities to be supported and the categories 
and characteristics of individuals to be served--must be provided. 
States vary greatly in the information they provide and the structure 
of the report. States are required to submit a revised intended use 
plan if the planned use of SSBG funds changes during the year.
    In order to provide a more accurate analysis of the extent to which 
funds are spent ``in a manner consistent'' with each of the States' 
plan for their use, as required by 42 USC 1397e(a), we are requesting 
that States voluntarily use the format of the post-expenditure 
reporting form to provide estimates of the amount of expenditures and 
the number of recipients, by service category, that the State plans to 
use SSBG funds to support as part of the intended use plan. Many States 
are already using the format of the post-expenditure reporting form as 
part of their intended use plan.
    Respondents:
    The post-expenditure reporting form and intended use plan are 
completed once annually by a representative of the agency that 
administers the Social Services Block Grant at the State level in each 
State.
