SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2015, NIOSH and the DOL Office of Workers’ asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:05 Feb 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 Compensation Programs (OWCP) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) 1 designed to establish a joint quality assurance program for the assessment of classifications of chest radiographic images performed by physicians in Black Lung Benefits proceedings who are ‘‘B Readers’’ certified by NIOSH. The B Reader Certification Program was established by NIOSH pursuant to the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, 30 U.S.C. 843. NIOSH B Readers are physicians who have demonstrated proficiency in the use of the International Labour Organization (ILO) Classification of Radiographs of Pneumoconioses by passing a proficiency examination offered by NIOSH, as specified in 42 CFR 37.51. B Readers may submit classifications as part of OWCP’s process of evaluating claims for compensation under the federal Black Lung Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 to 944. To implement the MOU, NIOSH has developed a draft quality assurance review procedure entitled, NIOSH Quality Assurance Review of B Readers’ Classifications Submitted in the Department of Labor (DOL) Black Lung Benefits Program, to provide a mechanism to assess the quality of classifications of certain chest radiographs performed by B Readers. NIOSH quality assurance review will focus on the classification of the presence or absence of large opacities as described in the ILO classification system in chest radiographs, because coal miners with large opacities are irrefutably presumed to be totally disabled, or to have died, from pneumoconiosis, pursuant to 30 U.S.C. 921(c)(3). Thus, determinations of large opacities have a significant impact on awarding benefits under the Black Lung Benefits Act. NIOSH seeks comment from B Readers and other interested parties on the draft procedure. All comments submitted will be considered; the final version of this procedure will be published on the NIOSH Web site. Dated: February 8, 2016.

This request is to extend the time and slightly reduce burden. Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans and results in serious consequences for victims, families, and communities. IPV occurs between two people in a close relationship. The term ‘‘intimate partner’’ describes physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. IPV can impact health in many ways, including long-term health problems, emotional impacts, and links to negative health behaviors. Given these factors, the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (42 U.S.C. 10401) provides an important opportunity for the advancement of public health and reduction of IPV. Support and guidance for programs addressing IPV have been provided through cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance administered by CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC). NCIPC will continue collecting information needed to monitor cooperative agreement programs funded under Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership through Alliances, Focusing on Outcomes for Communities United with States (DELTA FOCUS). Information to be collected will provide crucial data for program performance monitoring and provide CDC with the capacity to respond in a timely manner to requests for information about the program from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the White House, Congress, and other sources. Awardees will report progress and activity information to CDC on an annual schedule using the Program Management Information System (PMIS) consisting of fillable electronic templates and submitted via Grant Solutions. CDC will use the information collected to monitor each awardee’s progress and to identify facilitators and challenges to program implementation and achievement of outcomes. Monitoring allows CDC to determine whether an awardee is meeting performance goals and to make adjustments in the type and level of technical assistance provided to them, as needed, to support attainment of their objectives. CDC’s monitoring and evaluation activities also allow CDC to provide oversight of the use of federal funds, and to identify and disseminate information about successful prevention and control strategies implemented by awardees.

Background and Brief Description

    This is a revision request for three years for the currently 
approved OMB Control Number 0920-0968, with an expiration date of May 
31, 2016. This request is to extend the time and slightly reduce 
burden.
    Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public 
health problem that affects millions of Americans and results in 
serious consequences for victims, families, and communities. IPV occurs 
between two people in a close relationship. The term ``intimate 
partner'' describes physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a 
current or former partner or spouse. IPV can impact health in many 
ways, including long-term health problems, emotional impacts, and links 
to negative health behaviors. Given these factors, the Family Violence 
Prevention and Services Act (42 U.S.C. 10401) provides an important 
opportunity for the advancement of public health and reduction of IPV. 
Support and guidance for programs addressing IPV have been provided 
through cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance 
administered by CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control 
(NCIPC). NCIPC will continue collecting information needed to monitor 
cooperative agreement programs funded under Domestic Violence 
Prevention Enhancement and Leadership through Alliances, Focusing on 
Outcomes for Communities United with States (DELTA FOCUS).
    Information to be collected will provide crucial data for program 
performance monitoring and provide CDC with the capacity to respond in 
a timely manner to requests for information about the program from the 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the White House, 
Congress, and other sources. Awardees will report progress and activity 
information to CDC on an annual schedule using the Program Management 
Information System (PMIS) consisting of fillable electronic templates 
and submitted via Grant Solutions. CDC will use the information 
collected to monitor each awardee's progress and to identify 
facilitators and challenges to program implementation and achievement 
of outcomes. Monitoring allows CDC to determine whether an awardee is 
meeting performance goals and to make adjustments in the type and level 
of technical assistance provided to them, as needed, to support 
attainment of their objectives. CDC's monitoring and evaluation 
activities also allow CDC to provide oversight of the use of federal 
funds, and to identify and disseminate information about successful 
prevention and control strategies implemented by awardees.
    Participation in the information collection is required as a 
condition of funding. The estimated annual burden hours are 60. There 
are no costs to respondents other than their time.
