The NAFI will collect information on the following: (1) Familiarity with SAMHSA DTAC; (2) participant background and experiences; (3) general DBH-related needs; and (4) additional feedback related to specific needs identified in the NAS. This instrument is new under the proposed revision. The NAFI will be administered by telephone. Participation in the NAFI will be solicited from up to 25 state or territory coordinators who completed the NAS— State/Territory Version and up to 25 local providers who completed the NAS—Local Provider Version. These individuals will be selected in such a manner as to obtain representation from various participants of various state/ territory demographics, such as geographic region or frequency of disasters. SAMHSA DTAC Customer Satisfaction Survey (CSS). The CSS will collect data from SAMHSA DTAC customers to ensure that the assistance SAMHSA DTAC provides is up-to-date, applicable, useful, and well received. Specifically, the CSS will collect the experiences and perspectives of: (1) Those who have requested TA (e.g., behavioral health coordinators, project coordinators, local providers) and (2) those who subscribe to SAMHSA DTAC e-communications. The CSS will assess the following: (1) familiarity with SAMHSA DTAC services and resources; (2) satisfaction with SAMHSA DTAC services and resources; (3) recommendations for enhancement of SAMHSA DTAC services and resources; and (4) participant background and demographics. Revisions to this effort include modifications to the data collection instrument based on changes in SAMHSA DTAC services, modifications to the satisfaction rating scales to further increase clarity and efficiency of administration, and a reduced administration frequency (the proposed collection is for a twice annual administration as opposed to quarterly). The CSS will be administered by web and telephone. Participation in the CSS will be solicited from all 50 states, the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia. The survey will be administered to individuals who have requested TA within the 6 months prior to administration and those who are subscribed to DTAC’s ecommunications SAMHSA DTAC Bulletin or The Dialogue at the time of administration. During each administration, those who participated in the most recent administration of the CSS will be excluded. Internet-based technology will be used to collect data via web-based surveys for the NAS and the CSS and for data entry and management of all proposed instruments. The average annual respondent burden is estimated below. The NAS instruments will be administered every 2 years. The CSS will be administered every six months. Table 1 represents the initial data collection and the burden for the first year. These estimates reflect the average annual number of respondents, the average annual number of responses, the time required for each response, and the average annual burden in hours.
