Document Number: 2011-19308
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-07-29
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On April 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated the third sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on sulfanilic acid from India and the People's Republic of China (``the PRC''), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Evaluation of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of University Partnerships
Document Number: 2011-19290
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-07-29
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is conducting an evaluation of four grant programs funded through HUD's Office of University Partnerships (OUP). The four OUP programs are: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU); Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities (HSIAC); Alaskan Native/Native Hawaiian Institutions Assisting Communities (ANNHIAC); and Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP). These programs were designed to encourage and expand the growing number of partnerships formed between colleges and universities and their communities. Program grants are used to fund community development activities in disadvantaged communities and to encourage minority- serving colleges and universities to contribute their technical expertise, organizational capacity, and resources to local community development efforts. There has been no prior evaluation of the outcomes or impacts of activities funded through OUP grants, which have an average annual value of $25 million. Therefore, this evaluation will be the first to systematically document program outcomes and to explore how factors such as partnership structure or the types of activities completed with grant funds affect outcomes for OUP grants. In addition, the study will help the Office of University Partnerships better understand the challenges that grantees face in implementing grant-funded activities. The results of the evaluation will assist the Department in designing grant programs in the future. This request is for data collection through a web survey and telephone interviews with 67 OUP grant recipients. The web survey instrument and telephone interview protocol are provided in Appendices 5 and 6, respectively. Together, the web survey and telephone interviews will be used to collect in-depth information about the activities funded with OUP grants. The web survey will be used to develop a comprehensive list of activities undertaken by grantees, and to document the partners and additional funding used to support OUP-funded activities. The telephone interviews will focus on two non-trivial activities per grantee (an activity will be considered non-trivial if more than 20 percent of grant funds from a given OUP grant were dedicated to it). The evaluation team will use the telephone interviews to collect more detailed information on the goals, accomplishments, and beneficiaries of the activities, as well as the partnership structures used to implement funded activities.
