Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 6520-6521 [2015-02242]

Download as PDF 6520 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 24 / Thursday, February 5, 2015 / Notices with the outcome of the dose reconstruction. The dose reconstruction results will be supplied to the claimant and to the DOL, the agency that will utilize them as one part of its determination of whether the claimant is eligible for compensation under the Act. It is estimated that 3,600 claimants will complete the conclusion form which takes approximately five minutes per response. The total estimated burden hours are 3,900. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. 3,600 claimants will be interviewed with an average burden of one hour per response. At the conclusion of the dose reconstruction process, the claimant submits a form to confirm that the claimant has no further information to provide to NIOSH about the claim at this time. The form notifies the claimant that signing the form allows NIOSH to forward a dose reconstruction report to DOL and to the claimant, and closes the record on data used for the dose reconstruction. Signing this form does not indicate that the claimant agrees NIOSH uses the data collected in this process to complete an individual dose reconstruction that accounts, as fully as possible, for the radiation dose incurred by the employee in the line of duty for DOE nuclear weapons production programs. After dose reconstruction, NIOSH also performs a brief, voluntary final interview with the claimant to explain the results and to allow the claimant to confirm or question the records NIOSH has compiled. This will also be the final opportunity for the claimant to supplement the dose reconstruction record.

Title: Cross-site Evaluation Survey 2012 Family Connection Grantees OMB No.: 0970–NEW Description: In the interest of providing as complete an evaluation report as possible by the end of FY15, the Children’s Bureau has directed the contractor conducting the Cross-site Evaluation to adopt the most efficient means possible to collect process evaluation data from grantees. The proposed electronic survey will replace originally planned in-person and telephone discussions with electronic surveys. This will enable collection of key information on project design, implementation, maintenance, and sustainability from key grantee representatives in an abbreviated amount of time. The quantitative nature of the surveys will enable rapid data analysis and reporting. Respondents: The Cross-site Evaluation addresses a total of seventeen (17) Family Connection grantees. Four categories of participants will be surveyed: Project Leadership, Service Providers, Project Partners (public child welfare and community agencies), and Evaluators. For each grantee, an average of 20 respondents is anticipated: 4 project leadership, 9 service providers, 2 public child welfare agency representatives, 2 community partner representatives, and 3 evaluators. These numbers of participants, per category, are used in the table below to calculate the number of respondents, across the 17 projects to be surveyed. Differences in burden estimates for the different instruments reflect the number of questions in each.

This collection was developed as part of a Federal Government-wide effort to streamline the process for seeking feedback from the public on service delivery. This notice announces our intent to submit this collection to OMB for approval and solicits comments on specific aspects for the proposed information collection. To Submit Comments and for Further Information: To obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, submit comments in writing, or request more information on the proposed project, contact: NIMH Project Clearance Liaison, Science Policy and Evaluation Branch, OSPPC, NIMH, NIH, Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Boulevard, MSC 9667, Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20892, or call 301–443– 4335 or Email your request, including your address to: NIMHprapubliccomments@ mail.nih.gov. Formal requests for rljohnson on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:46 Feb 04, 2015 Jkt 235001 additional plans and instruments must be requested in writing. Comment Due Date: Comments regarding this information collection are best assured of having their full effect if received within 60 days of the date of this publication. Proposed Collection: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery (NIMH), 0925–0650, Expiration Date 1/31/2015, REINSTATEMENT WITHOUT CHANGE, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: There are no changes being requested for this submission. The proposed information collection activity provides a means to garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide information about the NIMH’s customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the NIMH and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. The solicitation of feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the NIMH’s services will be unavailable. The NIMH will only submit a collection for approval under this generic clearance if it meets the following conditions: • The collections are voluntary; • The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6521 the respondents and the Federal Government; • The collections are noncontroversial and do not raise issues of concern to other Federal agencies; • Any collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions from respondents who have experience with the program or may have experience with the program in the near future; • Personally identifiable information (PII) is collected only to the extent necessary and is not retained; • Information gathered will be used only internally for general service improvement and program management purposes and is not intended for release outside of the agency; • Information gathered will not be used for the purpose of substantially informing influential policy decisions; and • Information gathered will yield qualitative information; the collections will not be designed or expected to yield statistically reliable results or used as though the results are generalizable to the population of study. Feedback collected under this generic clearance provides useful information, but it does not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: the target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. As a general matter, information collections will not result in any new system of records containing privacy information and will not ask questions of a sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, religious beliefs, and other matters that are commonly considered private. Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. Comments E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1

    OMB No.: 0970-NEW
    Description: In the interest of providing as complete an evaluation 
report as possible by the end of FY15, the Children's Bureau has 
directed the contractor conducting the Cross-site Evaluation to adopt 
the most efficient means possible to collect process evaluation data 
from grantees. The proposed electronic survey will replace originally 
planned in-person and telephone discussions with electronic surveys. 
This will enable collection of key information on project design, 
implementation, maintenance, and sustainability from key grantee 
representatives in an abbreviated amount of time. The quantitative 
nature of the surveys will enable rapid data analysis and reporting.
    Respondents: The Cross-site Evaluation addresses a total of 
seventeen (17) Family Connection grantees. Four categories of 
participants will be surveyed: Project Leadership, Service Providers, 
Project Partners (public child welfare and community agencies), and 
Evaluators. For each grantee, an average of 20 respondents is 
anticipated: 4 project leadership, 9 service providers, 2 public child 
welfare agency representatives, 2 community partner representatives, 
and 3 evaluators. These numbers of participants, per category, are used 
in the table below to calculate the number of respondents, across the 
17 projects to be surveyed. Differences in burden estimates for the 
different instruments reflect the number of questions in each.
