Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 78068 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 248 / Monday, December 29, 2014 / Notices transitioning veterans and economically vulnerable consumers nationwide. Over three years, it is estimated that tens of thousands of consumers will be served. In order for CFPB to understand whether the program is effective and for the financial coaches to be able to deliver efficient services and track clients over time, CFPB will need to take steps to monitor program performance and to evaluate the program. This will ultimately include a process evaluation to examine program implementation and an outcomes evaluation to examine program effects on clients. Performance monitoring and the process and outcome evaluations will involve three key data collection efforts: administrative data collected about clients by financial coaches for programmatic purposes; interview data collected by evaluators from key informants such as coaching clients, financial coaches and program administrators; and self-reported survey data from coaches and coaching clients. The information to be collected from clients will include a combination of personal information (basic contact and demographic information), performance metrics (outputs), client-level outcomes (progress towards financial goals or other relevant outcomes) and programmatic and organizational outcomes. The current information collection request is specifically for the administrative data that will be collected by coaches from financial coaching clients for programmatic and performance monitoring purposes. Additional requests will be submitted at a later date for the process and outcomes components of the evaluation. Request for Comments: The Bureau issued a 60-day Federal Register notice on September 4, 2014 (79 FR 52638). Comments were solicited and continue to be invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
