Proposed Project: 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health—(OMB No. 0930–0110)—Revision The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of the civilian, non-institutionalized population of the United States 12 years old and older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, ONDCP, Federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources. 4,788 Data from clinical interviews completed in 2008 were combined with the main interview short scale data to develop a predictive model that was applied to the full main sample to estimate SMI. Follow-up clinical interviews continued to be conducted with NSDUH respondents from 2009 to 2012. Data from these interviews were analyzed annually to update the calibration of the screening measure. To maximize trend validity, this model has been applied to 2009–2011 data. With the completion of 1500 clinical interviews in 2012, SAMHSA will have accumulated a large enough sample (4,500) to update and improve the models. Therefore, the MHSS clinical interviewing will be discontinued in 2013. For the 2013 NSDUH, a few questionnaire changes are proposed. The instrument has been updated to include new questions on military service, medical marijuana, physician substance use screening, and respondent characteristics. As with all NSDUH/NHSDA surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey for 2013 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. The total annual burden estimate is shown below: ESTIMATED BURDEN FOR 2013 NSDUH Responses per respondent Number of respondents Instrument Hours per response Total burden hours Hourly wage rate Annualized costs 145,474 67,500 5,400 10,125 1 1 1 1 0.083 1.000 0.067 0.067 12,074 67,500 362 678 $14.45 14.45 14.45 14.45 $174,469 975,375 5,231 9,797 Total .................................................. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Household Screening ...............................

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
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 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) Rapid HIV Testing 
Clinical Information Form (OMB No. 0930-0295)--Revision

    This request is for a three-year generic clearance to continue 
rapid HIV testing data collection among 63 TCE-HIV Grantees and their 
clients and the additional 11 MAI-HIV Grantees and their clients. The 
primary purpose of the MAI Rapid HIV Testing Clinical Information Form 
is to use a standardized data collection instrument to fully capture 
essential clinical information to enhance preventive services for those 
who test HIV-negative and refer to quality treatment/medical care those 
who test HIV-positive.
    The aim of the project is to implement and increase rapid HIV 
testing among racial and ethnic minorities and collect rapid HIV 
testing data using the MAI Rapid HIV Testing Clinical Information Form. 
To meet this requirement, all Grantees must offer their clients rapid 
HIV preliminary antibody testing during outreach, pretreatment, or 
program enrollment. In addition, rapid HIV testing may be made 
available to the sexual and/or injection partners of clients. Grantees 
must provide onsite rapid HIV testing in accordance with their 
respective State and local requirements. If a client requests an off-
site rapid HIV test, the Grantee must provide a referral to a rapid HIV 
testing site certified by the local health department.
    Grantees are currently using the MAI Rapid HIV Testing Clinical 
Information Form in the field to systematically collect information 
from clients on demographics, previous rapid HIV test results, 
substance use and sexual risk behaviors, current rapid HIV test 
results, types of services received, and confirmatory HIV test result. 
Once a client is offered a rapid HIV test, the Grantee staff completes 
the MAI Rapid HIV Testing Clinical Information Form with the client 
present and then enters the data into a secure Web site that allows for 
real-time data submission.
    The estimated annualized burden is summarized below.
