proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance 
with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C.

provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial 
resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, 
and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly 
assessed.
    Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed new 
information collection through the Partnership and Collaboration (PAC) 
Survey that is part of the Social Network Study (SNS). The goal of this 
study is to gather a comprehensive understanding of network of 
organizations in the same service area as CNCS grantees, the 
relationships and interactions of CNCS grantees with these other 
organizations, and how central the AmeriCorps members and member 
organizations are to these networks. In support of these efforts, we 
will design and field a survey of grantees and organizations in the

which will be the foundation for social network analysis. CNCS will 
analyze the resulting data, which will produce quantitative mapping of 
networks and measure the networks' formal properties--notably the 
strength, intensity, frequency, and direction of the network relations. 
Participation in data collection efforts is not required to be 
considered to obtain support from CNCS.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CNCS is particularly interested in comments 
that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of CNCS, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and

those who are expected to respond, including the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection

electronic submissions of responses).

Background

    While previous evaluation efforts have confirmed CNCS's impact on 
members and recipients of services such as increased education, skills, 
and civic participation, the Social Network Study (SNS) will be a 
feasibility study of a tool designed to evaluate the collaboration and 
partnerships between ACSN grantees and organizations within their 
geographic communities. The main goal of SNS is to gather through the 
Partnership and Collaboration (PAC) Survey an in-depth understanding of 
how ACSN grantees engage organizational communities through 
partnerships and to learn more about their relationships and 
interactions with other organizations within their network. The PAC 
will also provide information about both the barriers that prevent 
collaboration and interaction, and facilitators that could be utilized 
to overcome them. These outcomes are an important step to developing a 
more vigorous civic infrastructure and increasing capacity in the 
communities served by CNCS and its grantees. This study will also help 
CNCS disseminate best practices about collaboration and partnerships to 
other AmeriCorps programs. Information will be collected electronically 
via Web primarily and telephone and mail in options will be provided 
only to those not responsive to the Web survey.
