Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Innovative Strategies for Increasing SelfSufficiency (ISIS) demonstration and evaluation. The ISIS project will test a range of promising career pathways strategies to promote education, employment, and self-sufficiency. The major goals of the ISIS project include increasing the empirical knowledge about the effectiveness of a variety of programs for low-income individuals and families to achieve educational credentials, attain employment and advance to positions that enable selfsufficiency, as well as producing useful findings for both policymakers and program administrators. This proposed information collection activity focuses on collecting follow-up data elements approximately one year after program enrollment. (Baseline data elements were previously collected at the time of program enrollment. A baseline information form captured basic identification, demographic, and contact information from program participants; a self-administered questionnaire captured additional information about participants related to the project goals; and baseline implementation data collection interviews collected information from knowledgeable informants about the service context for each evaluation site using a baseline implementation guide.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Guidance for Industry on Formal Meetings with Sponsors and Applicants for Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) Products—(OMB Control Number 0910–0429)—(Extension) This information collection approval request is for FDA guidance on the procedures for formal meetings between FDA and sponsors or applicants regarding the development and review of PDUFA products. The guidance describes procedures for requesting, scheduling, conducting, and documenting such formal meetings. The guidance provides information on how the Agency will interpret and apply section 119(a) of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act (FDAMA), specific PDUFA goals for the management of meetings associated with the review of human drug applications for PDUFA products, and provisions of existing regulations describing certain meetings (§§ 312.47 and 312.82 (21 CFR 312.47 and 312.82)). The guidance describes two collections of information: The submission of a meeting request containing certain information and the submission of an information package in advance of the formal meeting. Agency regulations at § 312.47(b)(1)(ii), (b)(1)(iv), and (b)(2) describe information that should be submitted in support of a request for an End-of-Phase 2 meeting and a Pre-NDA meeting. The information collection provisions of § 312.47 have been approved by OMB (OMB control number 0910–0014). However, the guidance provides additional recommendations for submitting information to FDA in support of a meeting request. As a result, FDA is submitting additional estimates for OMB approval.

Proposed Information Collection Activity: Comment Request

    Title: Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency: 
Follow-Up Data Collection.
    OMB No.: 0970-0397.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data 
collection activity as part of the Innovative Strategies for Increasing 
Self-Sufficiency (ISIS) demonstration and evaluation. The ISIS project 
will test a range of promising career pathways strategies to promote 
education, employment, and self-sufficiency. The major goals of the 
ISIS project include increasing the empirical knowledge about the 
effectiveness of a variety of programs for low-income individuals and 
families to achieve educational credentials, attain employment and 
advance to positions that enable self-sufficiency, as well as producing 
useful findings for both policymakers and program administrators.
    This proposed information collection activity focuses on collecting 
follow-up data elements approximately one year after program 
enrollment. (Baseline data elements were previously collected at the 
time of program enrollment. A baseline information form captured basic 
identification, demographic, and contact information from program 
participants; a self-administered questionnaire captured additional 
information about participants related to the project goals; and 
baseline implementation data collection interviews collected 
information from knowledgeable informants about the service context for 
each evaluation site using a baseline implementation guide. These 
instruments were previously approved under OMB No. 0970-0397).
    The purpose of this information collection effort is to follow up 
with study participants, document the experiences of program 
participants, examine differences in service receipt and educational 
experiences between program and control group members, describe the 
intervention as it was implemented in each site and assess the extent 
to which it was implemented as intended, and assess the implications 
for intervention scalability and sustainability.
    Specifically, this data will be collected using the following 
instruments: (a) A follow-up survey which will be administered to all 
study participants approximately one year following enrollment in the 
study; (b) tracking letters which will be sent every four months to all 
study participants requesting an update of their contact information; 
(c) a modification to the Baseline Information Form requesting some 
basic information about all of the study participant's children (if 
applicable); (d) interview guides for the in-person visits to the 
intervention sites to structure discussions with program leadership/
managers, instructional staff, case managers/advisors, partners and 
employers; (e) a brief survey for instructional staff; (f) a brief 
survey for case managers/advisors; and (g) in-depth interviews with a 
sample of study participants.
    Respondents: Individuals enrolled in the ISIS demonstration 
programs, control group members, ISIS program/partner staff (including 
program leadership, case managers and instructional staff), and other 
local informants.
