Project: SAMHSA Disaster Technical Assistance Center Disaster Behavioral Health Needs Assessment and Customer Satisfaction Survey (OMB No. 0930– 0325)—Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting approval for a revision to the data collection associated with the SAMHSA Disaster Technical Assistance Center (DTAC) Disaster Behavioral Health Needs Assessment and Customer Satisfaction Survey (OMB No. 0930–0325), which expires on June 30, 2014. The data collection instruments include the Disaster Behavioral Health Needs Assessment (NAS)—State/Territory Version, the NAS—Local Provider Version, the Disaster Behavioral Health Follow-Up Interview Guide (NAFI), and the SAMHSA DTAC Customer Satisfaction Survey (CSS). All of the proposed data collection efforts will provide feedback on the overall effectiveness of SAMHSA DTAC’s services, ongoing needs at the national level, and areas that require enhanced technical assistance (TA) services. SAMHSA DTAC will be responsible for administering the four data collection instruments and analyzing the data. SAMHSA DTAC will use data from the instruments to inform current and future TA activities and to ensure these activities continue to align with state and local needs. A 3-year clearance is being requested to continue the previously cleared data collection activities. The components of the data collection are listed and described below, and a summary table PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14261 of the number of respondents and respondent burden has also been included. Disaster Behavior Health Needs Assessment Surveys (NAS). The NAS will assist SAMHSA DTAC in identifying the current needs of states, territories, federally recognized tribes, and local organizations and agencies as they integrate disaster behavioral health (DBH) into all-hazards disaster planning and response. There are two instruments under the NAS—the NAS— State/Territory Version and the NAS— Local Provider Version. The NAS will assess the current gaps and needs at the state, territory, and local provider levels in disaster behavioral health (mental health and substance abuse) planning and response efforts and preferred methods for receiving training to address these needs. Revisions to these data collection efforts include eliminating unnecessary questions, collapsing questions to ease respondent burden, changing or adding questions and response options to address DBH needs identified through previous administrations of the NAS instruments, and revising the administration to occur every two years instead of annually. Both NAS instruments will be administered online and will be programmed to include simplified screens and intuitive navigational controls. The NAS—State/Territory Version will be administered to all disaster mental health coordinators, disaster substance abuse coordinators, and DBH coordinators (coordinators responsible for both mental health and substance abuse disaster services) in the 50 states, the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia, for a total of 77 participants. Coordinators will be asked to provide contact information for up to 10 local DBH service providers with whom they work. These local providers will be invited to participate in the NAS—Local Provider Version. SAMHSA DTAC anticipates inviting approximately 250 local providers to participate across a representative sample of the states and U.S. territories. Disaster Behavioral Health Needs Assessment Follow-Up Interviews (NAFI). The NAFI will allow SAMHSA DTAC to gain a more nuanced understanding of the needs identified in the NAS. SAMHSA DTAC will use the NAFI to delve deeper into current DBH needs and specific findings from the NAS to identify gaps and trends in disaster behavioral health preparedness and response across the country and inform future TA for state, territory, and local behavioral health authorities. The instrument is designed to collect E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1 14262 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 49 / Thursday, March 13, 2014 / Notices indepth information useful for expanding and further enhancing the training and TA provided by SAMHSA DTAC, by SAMHSA DTAC, including tailoring resources to specific needs, providing resources in the most useful formats, and creating new resources to fill certain disaster behavioral health preparedness and response gaps. 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.
