DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES VerDate Mar<15>2010 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Project: Services Accountability Improvement System—(OMB No. 0930– 0208)—Revision This revised instrument will allow SAMHSA to collect information on two new strategic initiatives—Trauma and Violence and Military Families. The new items will be added to the Services Accountability Improvement System (SAIS), which is a real-time, performance management system that captures information on the substance abuse treatment and mental health services delivered in the United States. 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 website. The reports inform staff on the grantees’ ability to serve their target populations and meet their client and budget targets. SAIS data allow grantees information that can guide modifications to their service array. With the addition of new questions regarding military families, experiences with trauma, and experiences with violence GFA, there is a proposed new PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53913 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. CSAT 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 GPRA tool. Section H. Violence and Trauma— CSAT proposes to add the following 6 items in a new section entitled ‘‘Violence and Trauma’’. 1. Have you ever experienced violence or trauma in any setting (including community or school violence; domestic violence; physical, psychological, or sexual maltreatment/assault within or outside of the family; natural disaster; terrorism; neglect; or traumatic grief)? No, (skip to next section) 2. Did any of these experiences feel so frightening, horrible, or upsetting that in the past and/or the present that you: 2a.

Were constantly on guard, watchful, or easily startled? 2d. Felt numb and detached from others, activities, or your surroundings? 3. In the past 30 days, how often have you been hit, kicked, slapped, or otherwise physically hurt? • Experiences with Violence and Trauma—One of SAMHSA’s 10 Strategic Initiatives is trauma and violence. In order to capture this information, CSAT is adding six new questions to be asked of respondents. This information will help in SAMHSA’s overall goal of reducing the behavioral health impacts of violence and trauma by encouraging substance abuse treatment programs to focus on trauma-informed services. Section L. Military Family and Deployment—CSAT proposes to add the following 6 new items in a new section entitled ‘‘Military Family and Deployment’’. 1.
