Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request, 75437-75439 [2012-30686]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 245 / Thursday, December 20, 2012 / Notices performance and status indicators, risk analysis and loss information, Basel II parameters and identifier variables (such as customer and co-borrower ID). Also, the Federal Reserve proposes to remove three data items from the loan level table that can be derived from other data items. The Federal Reserve specifically requests comment on an institution’s ability to report data related to Loss Given Default (LGD) on first Lien and home equity loans in cases of involuntary termination. The Federal Reserve specifically requests comment on what information, in addition to total debt at time of any involuntary termination, net recovery amount, and sales price of property, would be appropriate to collect in order to estimate LGD. Domestic Home Equity Loan and Home Equity Line Schedule The Federal Reserve proposes adding 27 data items to the Domestic Home Equity Loan and Home Equity Line schedule and deleting one data item. The Federal Reserve proposes adding the data items to provide more information on loan performance, including loss, default, modification, foreclosure and recovery variables, and Basel II parameters, and to be consistent with the proposed revisions to the Domestic First Lien Closed End 1–4 Family Residential Loan schedule, as discussed above. The Federal Reserve proposes to delete the Paid-in-Full Coding data item (Field 52), as this information is sufficiently captured in the Liquidation Status data item (Field 54). tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with Address Matching Loan Level Data Collection The Federal Reserve proposes to add one data item to the Address Matching Loan Level Data Collection schedule to indicate whether the loan is included in the FR Y–14M First Lien Closed-End or Home Equity Loan and Home Equity Line schedule for that month. Domestic Credit Card Data Collection Data Dictionary The Federal Reserve proposes to add 65 data items to the Domestic Credit Card Data Collection Data Dictionary schedule. 46 data items would be added at the account level to collect information surrounding identifier variables (including corporation and borrower IDs, address, entity type, and trade key), purchase and payment rate variables, status and performance data, various fees incurred, workout program descriptors, and credit scores and limits. In addition, the Federal Reserve VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:07 Dec 19, 2012 Jkt 229001 proposes to revise the current reporting of 11 account level data items from optional to mandatory, in order to create greater uniformity in the reporting of balance, cycle and account dates and amounts. At the portfolio level, 19 data items would be added to collect information on interest and non-interest expenses, interest and noninterest income, various types of fee income, and taxes. Copies of the draft reporting forms and instructions and additional details on the proposed data items are available on the Federal Reserve Board’s public Web site at: http:// www.federalreserve.gov/apps/ reportforms/review.aspx.

[FR Doc. 2012–30636 Filed 12–19–12; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6210–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request Title: Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program. OMB No.: 0970–0394. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program. ACF has developed a multipronged research and evaluation approach for the HPOG program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and their results. The proposed data collection activities described in this notice will provide data for three evaluation components, the National Implementation Evaluation of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants to Serve TANF Recipients and Other Low-Income Individuals (HPOG– NIE) and the Impact Studies of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG-Impact), and the Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self Sufficiency (ISIS) evaluation. Two data collection efforts related to HPOG research were approved by OMB, including approval of a Performance Reporting System (PRS) (approved September 2011) and for collection of additional baseline data for the HPOGImpact study (approved October 2012). One data collection of ISIS was PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75437 approved (November 2011) and follow up data collection instruments are currently under review. This 60-day notice describes the remaining data collection efforts for both HPOG–NIE and HPOG-Impact. Two of the proposed instruments will collect data from all of the ISIS sites. Information collection described under 1 through 9 will be included in the next OMB submission for review. Information collections 10 through 14 will be submitted in a future information collection clearance request. The goal of HPOG–NIE is to describe and assess the implementation, systems change, and outcomes and other important information about the operations of the 27 HPOG grantees focused on TANF recipients and other low-income individuals. To achieve these goals, it is necessary to collect data about the HPOG program designs and implementation, HPOG partner and program networks and indicators of systems change, employers’ perceptions of HPOG programs, the composition and intensity of HPOG services received, participant characteristics and HPOG experiences, and participant outputs and outcomes. The goal of HPOG-Impact is to evaluate the effectiveness of approaches used by 20 of the HPOG grantees to provide TANF recipients and other low-income individuals with opportunities for education, training and advancement within the health care field. HPOG-Impact also is intended to evaluate variation in participant impact that may be attributable to different HPOG program components and models. The impact study design is a classic experiment in which eligible applicants will be randomly assigned to a treatment group that is offered participation in HPOG and a control group that is not permitted to enroll in HPOG. Data collected from the HPOG participants served by these 20 grantees will also be used for the HPOG–NIE study. The goal of ISIS is to test a range of promising career pathways strategies to promote education, employment, and self-sufficiency. Three HPOG grantees are in the ISIS evaluation along with 6 additional non-HPOG sites. The information collection activities to be submitted in the next request package include: (1) The HPOG–NIE sample frame questionnaire will ask respondents from each of the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantees to identify and provide contact information for potential respondents to the surveys described in items 2–4. E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1 75438 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 245 / Thursday, December 20, 2012 / Notices (2) The HPOG–NIE grantee survey will be administered to staff of the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantees and their major collaborators. The survey will collect information about the HPOG program context and about program administration, activities and services. (3) The HPOG–NIE survey of HPOG program management and staff will collect information from HPOG staff in the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantee sites about their approaches to delivering key program services and activities, as well as beliefs and attitudes about the HPOG program and mission and priorities in serving its target population. (4) The HPOG–NIE stakeholder/ network survey will collect information about partner organizations’ and stakeholders’ roles, responsibilities, levels of investment, and perceptions of the viability and productivity of the program and stakeholder network in all 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantee sites and the 6 additional nonHPOG ISIS sites. (5) The HPOG–NIE employer survey will collect information about employers’ perceptions of the overall healthcare labor market, firm-specific conditions and hiring practices, and their perceptions of and experience with the program in all 27 TANF and lowincome HPOG grantee sites and the 6 additional non-HPOG ISIS sites. (6) HPOG-Impact in-person implementation interviews with HPOG personnel will collect information about the grantees’ rationale for applying for HPOG funding, administrative challenges, and challenges implementing programs as planned, as well as information about staff roles and responsibilities and perceptions of the program. The study will use the interviews to supplement and validate sections of the HPOG–NIE grantee survey (described above) in the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantee sites. (7) HPOG-Impact additional in-person implementation interviews with HPOG personnel at systematic variation grantees will collect information about the implementation of HPOG program components that may be associated with variation in participant impacts in the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantee sites. (8) The HPOG-Impact follow-up survey of both treatment and control group members will be administered approximately 15 months after baseline data collection and random assignment. The survey will collect data about outcomes of interest, including certifications and educational achievements, job placement, wages, and benefits. It also will collect some information about HPOG participants’ tenure and experience in HPOG programming in all 20 HPOG Impact sites. (9) The HPOG–NIE supplemental participant follow-up survey will be the same as the instrument developed for the HPOG-Impact follow-up survey but will be administered to participants from the four HPOG grantees focused on TANF recipients and other low-income individuals that are not included in the HPOG-Impact study or the Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency (ISIS) project. Data collection activities to submit in a future information collection request include: (10) The HPOG–NIE follow-up stakeholder/network survey; (11) the HPOG-Impact second follow-up survey of both treatment and control group members; (12) the HPOG–NIE second supplemental participant follow-up survey; (13) HPOG-Impact follow-up data collection on children of HPOGImpact study participants; and (14) the HPOG–NIE in-person interviews with HPOG managers and staff. Respondents: Individuals enrolled in HPOG interventions; control group members; HPOG program managers; HPOG program staff, including instructors and case managers; representatives of partner agencies and stakeholders, including support service providers, education and vocational training providers, Workforce Investment Boards, TANF agencies, and local health care employers.

The final guidance entitled ‘‘Safety Reporting Requirements for INDs and BA/BE Studies’’ contains the definitions used for IND safety reporting, makes recommendations on when and how to submit a safety report, and provides advice on other safety reporting issues that have generated questions from sponsors and investigators. The Small Entity Compliance Guide provides answers to many frequently asked questions FDA has received from investigators and sponsors regarding the safety reporting requirements that are applicable to small entities. In addition, on June 7, 2011, the Agency published a guidance describing enforcement discretion with the reporting requirements until September 28, 2011, to allow sponsors additional time to make process changes to implement the final rule (76 FR 32863; June 7, 2011). At this time, the Agency is withdrawing this guidance. These guidances are being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The guidances represent the Agency’s current thinking on safety reporting requirements for IND and BA/BE studies. They do not create or confer any rights for or on any person and do not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. II.

Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Title: Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program.
    OMB No.: 0970-0394.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data 
collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity 
Grants (HPOG) program. ACF has developed a multi-pronged research and 
evaluation approach for the HPOG program to better understand and 
assess the activities conducted and their results. The proposed data 
collection activities described in this notice will provide data for 
three evaluation components, the National Implementation Evaluation of 
the Health Profession Opportunity Grants to Serve TANF Recipients and 
Other Low-Income Individuals (HPOG-NIE) and the Impact Studies of the 
Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG-Impact), and the Innovative 
Strategies for Increasing Self Sufficiency (ISIS) evaluation.
    Two data collection efforts related to HPOG research were approved 
by OMB, including approval of a Performance Reporting System (PRS) 
(approved September 2011) and for collection of additional baseline 
data for the HPOG-Impact study (approved October 2012). One data 
collection of ISIS was approved (November 2011) and follow up data 
collection instruments are currently under review.
    This 60-day notice describes the remaining data collection efforts 
for both HPOG-NIE and HPOG-Impact. Two of the proposed instruments will 
collect data from all of the ISIS sites. Information collection 
described under 1 through 9 will be included in the next OMB submission 
for review. Information collections 10 through 14 will be submitted in 
a future information collection clearance request.
    The goal of HPOG-NIE is to describe and assess the implementation, 
systems change, and outcomes and other important information about the 
operations of the 27 HPOG grantees focused on TANF recipients and other 
low-income individuals. To achieve these goals, it is necessary to 
collect data about the HPOG program designs and implementation, HPOG 
partner and program networks and indicators of systems change, 
employers' perceptions of HPOG programs, the composition and intensity 
of HPOG services received, participant characteristics and HPOG 
experiences, and participant outputs and outcomes.
    The goal of HPOG-Impact is to evaluate the effectiveness of 
approaches used by 20 of the HPOG grantees to provide TANF recipients 
and other low[hyphen]income individuals with opportunities for 
education, training and advancement within the health care field. HPOG-
Impact also is intended to evaluate variation in participant impact 
that may be attributable to different HPOG program components and 
models. The impact study design is a classic experiment in which 
eligible applicants will be randomly assigned to a treatment group that 
is offered participation in HPOG and a control group that is not 
permitted to enroll in HPOG. Data collected from the HPOG participants 
served by these 20 grantees will also be used for the HPOG-NIE study.
    The goal of ISIS is to test a range of promising career pathways 
strategies to promote education, employment, and self-sufficiency. 
Three HPOG grantees are in the ISIS evaluation along with 6 additional 
non-HPOG sites.
    The information collection activities to be submitted in the next 
request package include:
    (1) The HPOG-NIE sample frame questionnaire will ask respondents 
from each of the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantees to identify and 
provide contact information for potential respondents to the surveys 
described in items 2-4.

[[Page 75438]]

    (2) The HPOG-NIE grantee survey will be administered to staff of 
the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantees and their major collaborators. 
The survey will collect information about the HPOG program context and 
about program administration, activities and services.
    (3) The HPOG-NIE survey of HPOG program management and staff will 
collect information from HPOG staff in the 27 TANF and low-income HPOG 
grantee sites about their approaches to delivering key program services 
and activities, as well as beliefs and attitudes about the HPOG program 
and mission and priorities in serving its target population.
    (4) The HPOG-NIE stakeholder/network survey will collect 
information about partner organizations' and stakeholders' roles, 
responsibilities, levels of investment, and perceptions of the 
viability and productivity of the program and stakeholder network in 
all 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantee sites and the 6 additional non-
HPOG ISIS sites.
    (5) The HPOG-NIE employer survey will collect information about 
employers' perceptions of the overall healthcare labor market, firm-
specific conditions and hiring practices, and their perceptions of and 
experience with the program in all 27 TANF and low-income HPOG grantee 
sites and the 6 additional non-HPOG ISIS sites.
    (6) HPOG-Impact in-person implementation interviews with HPOG 
personnel will collect information about the grantees' rationale for 
applying for HPOG funding, administrative challenges, and challenges 
implementing programs as planned, as well as information about staff 
roles and responsibilities and perceptions of the program. The study 
will use the interviews to supplement and validate sections of the 
HPOG-NIE grantee survey (described above) in the 27 TANF and low-income 
HPOG grantee sites.
    (7) HPOG-Impact additional in-person implementation interviews with 
HPOG personnel at systematic variation grantees will collect 
information about the implementation of HPOG program components that 
may be associated with variation in participant impacts in the 27 TANF 
and low-income HPOG grantee sites.
    (8) The HPOG-Impact follow-up survey of both treatment and control 
group members will be administered approximately 15 months after 
baseline data collection and random assignment. The survey will collect 
data about outcomes of interest, including certifications and 
educational achievements, job placement, wages, and benefits. It also 
will collect some information about HPOG participants' tenure and 
experience in HPOG programming in all 20 HPOG Impact sites.
    (9) The HPOG-NIE supplemental participant follow-up survey will be 
the same as the instrument developed for the HPOG-Impact follow-up 
survey but will be administered to participants from the four HPOG 
grantees focused on TANF recipients and other low[hyphen]income 
individuals that are not included in the HPOG-Impact study or the 
Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency (ISIS) project.
    Data collection activities to submit in a future information 
collection request include: (10) The HPOG-NIE follow-up stakeholder/
network survey; (11) the HPOG-Impact second follow-up survey of both 
treatment and control group members; (12) the HPOG-NIE second 
supplemental participant follow-up survey; (13) HPOG-Impact follow-up 
data collection on children of HPOG-Impact study participants; and (14)
