Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request., 21384-21385 [2013-08290]

Download as PDF 21384 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 69 / Wednesday, April 10, 2013 / Notices Customers who register for an account on the product Web site are given the option of being enrolled automatically to receive SAMHSA email updates. Any optional questions answered by the customer during the Web site registration process automatically are mapped to the profile generated for the email update system, thereby reducing the collection of duplicate information. SAMHSA collects all customer information submitted for Web site registration and email update subscriptions electronically via a series of Web forms on the samhsa.gov domain. Customers can submit the Web forms at their leisure, or call SAMHSA’s toll-free Call Center and an information specialist will submit the forms on their behalf. The electronic collection of information reduces the burden on the respondent and streamlines the datacapturing process. SAMHSA places Web site registration information into a Knowledge Management database and places email subscription information into a database maintained by a thirdparty vendor that serves multiple Federal agencies and the White House. Customers can change, add, or delete their information from either system at any time. The respondents are behavioral health professionals, researchers, parents, caregivers, and the general public. SAMHSA proposes two changes to the information collection. The first change is increasing the number of responses based on the average annual number of actual responses in 2011 and 2012. The second change is modifying the response options for ‘‘Organization Type’’ in the following ways: ‘‘Treatment Facility’’ will be changed to ‘‘Behavioral Health Treatment Facility’’, ‘‘Individual/Group Practice’’ will be changed to ‘‘Other Health Care Facility’’, and adding four new categories including ‘‘Military/Veterans Organization,’’ ‘‘Criminal Justice/ Courts,’’ ‘‘Health Insurer,’’ and ‘‘Human Resources/Employee Assistance Program.’’ SAMHSA estimates the burden of this information collection as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN Number of respondents Annual frequency per response Total annual responses Web Site Registration .......................................................... 38,605 1 38,605 Email Update Subscription .................................................. 21,138 1 21,138 Total .............................................................................. 59,743 Send comments to Summer King, SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer, Room 2–1057, One Choke Cherry Road, Rockville, MD 20857 OR email her a copy at summer.king@samhsa.hhs.gov.
