A wide range of client and program information is captured through SAIS for approximately 600 grantees. Substance abuse treatment facilities submit their data on a monthly and even a weekly basis to ensure that SAIS is an accurate, up-to-date reflection on the scope of services delivered and characteristics of the treatment population. Over 30 reports on grantee performance are readily available on the SAIS Web site. The reports inform staff on the grantees’ ability to serve their target populations and meet their client and budget targets.

Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed 
collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health 
Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed projects. 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

including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: National Outcome Measures (NOMs) for Substance Abuse 
Prevention--(OMB No. 0930-0230)--Revision

    This revised instrument will allow SAMHSA to collect information on 
a new strategic initiative--Military Families. The new items will be 
added to the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention's (CSAP) National 
Outcome Measures for Substance Abuse Prevention (NOMs). Data are 
collected from SAMHSA/CSAP grants and contracts where community and 
participant outcomes are assessed. The analysis of these data helps 
determine whether progress is being made in achieving SAMHSA/CSAP's 
mission. The primary purpose of this system is to promote the use among 
SAMHSA/CSAP grantees and contractors of common National Outcome 
Measures recommended by SAMHSA/CSAP with significant input from panels 
of experts and state representatives.
    With the addition of new questions regarding military families, 
there is a proposed new data collection instrument up for comment. 
Approval of this information collection will allow SAMHSA to continue 
to meet Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) reporting 
requirements that quantify the effects and accomplishments of its 
discretionary grant programs which are consistent with OMB guidance, 
and address goals and objectives outlined in the Office of National 
Drug Control Policy's Performance Measures of Effectiveness.
    CSAP has increased the number of questions in the instrument to 
satisfy reporting needs. The following paragraphs present a description 
of the changes made to the information collection. These questions will 
be contained in new sections in the Services tool.
    Military Family and Deployment-- CSAP proposes to add the following 
6 new items in the adult tool and 3 new items in the youth tool in a 
new section entitled ``Military Family and Deployment.''

     Veteran Family Status and Areas of Deployment--SAMHSA is 
interested in collecting data on active duty and veteran military 
members. Collection of these data will allow CSAP to identify the 
number of veterans served, deployment status and location, and family 
veteran status in conjunction with the types of services they may 
receive. Identifying a participant's veteran status and deployment area 
allows CSAP and the grantees to monitor these participants and explore 
whether special services or programs are needed to treat them for

between SAMHSA and other Federal agencies in order to provide a full

  three level evaluation: The Grantee, Community and Program Level. The Grantee level data will be pre-populated
  by SAMHSA. The use of the Community Level instrument is optional as they relate to targeted interventions
  implemented during the reporting period. At the program level, items will be selected in line with direct
  services implemented.
