Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 17167-17168 [2016-06922]

Download as PDF 17167 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2016 / Notices and to provide timely, facility-level feedback to participants with benchmarking and analyses capabilities. OHSN collects two types of data from participating facilities. Facilities collect these data to meet specific regulatory or administrative requirements. Thus, no new data collection is required. Participating facilities provides OHSN— (1) a onetime enrollment form, requests information of the participating facility and is publically available information from American Hospital Association database; and (2) a monthly submission of occupational injury data collected in the previous month. These data are sent to OHSN via a web portal in a format using standardized data elements and value sets. No personal identifiable information is transmitted to OHSN. Data elements include: Injury time, location and surrounding circumstances of each injury event. Healthcare facilities download data through an OHSN-provided data conversion and mapping tools to upload the monthly occupational injury data. Each participating facilities has access to OHSN web portal, facilities are able to analyze workers current and historical worker injury data to benchmark their internal injury rates and trends against aggregate data from similar workplaces. In addition they are able to assess the impact of prevention efforts on occupational health and safety over time using integrated data analysis and visualization tools (charts and graphs). OHSN currently tracks three common, serious, and preventable categories of traumatic injury to healthcare personnel: Slips, trips and falls; musculoskeletal disorders resulting from patient handling and movement events; and workplace violence. OHSN will add new modules about exposure to sharps injury and blood and body fluids exposures. NIOSH analyzes the data submitted to OHSN to conduct surveillance and to produce periodic aggregate reports on the occurrence of and risk factors for occupational injuries among all OHSN facilities. OHSN has been operating continuously and receiving voluntary monthly reports from 116 participating facilities since 2012 and is projected to enroll total of 900 facilities in the next three years. Current burden estimates were derived using the estimated number of facilities participating in OHSN for each facility type and form. OSHA reporting mandates were taken into account when estimating the number of facilities (participants) and the annual number of responses per facility. Total burden hours for this request is 185. NIOSH seeks approval for an OMB control number to continue this important work. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.

OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) block grant (42 U.S.C. 8621 et seq.) was established under Title XXVI of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981, 97. The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) administers LIHEAP at the federal level. The LIHEAP statute requires HHS to report to Congress annually on program impacts on recipient and eligible households. The primary program goals, as articulated in the statute, are to ensure that benefits are targeted to those households where the greatest program impacts are expected, and to assure that timely resources are available to households experiencing home energy crises. OCS is seeking authorization to collect data from all State LIHEAP grantees and the District of Columbia that will allow OCS to identify LIHEAP recipients that responded to the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS). The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) conducts this survey to provide periodic national and regional data on residential energy use PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in the United States. OCS uses RECS data to furnish Congress and the Administration with important national and regional descriptive data on the energy needs of low-income households. Specific data elements OCS is seeking to collect are detailed below. State LIHEAP grantees will be asked to furnish data for LIHEAP recipient households that reside in areas included in the RECS sample. For each household, report the following: • Name • Address (including ZIP code) • Household or Client ID • Telephone Number • Household Size • Gross Income • Heating assistance awarded? • Amount of heating assistance • Date of heating assistance • Cooling assistance awarded? • Amount of cooling assistance • Date of cooling assistance • Crisis Assistance awarded? • Amount of crisis assistance • Date of crisis assistance • Other Assistance awarded? • Amount of other assistance • Date of other assistance • Presence of children 5 or younger • Presence of adult 60 or older • Presence of disabled The following are additional optional data items that grantees can provide if the data are available in your database: • Tenancy (i.e., own or rent) • Type(s) of fuel used • Heat included in rent This data will help ACF to analyze specific information for the LIHEAP recipient population, including information related to benefits targeting, energy usage, and energy insecurity, and it will support analysis of LIHEAP data for the annual Report to Congress and the annual LIHEAP Home Energy Notebook. Respondents: ACF published a Federal Register notice on December 23, 2015 soliciting 60 days of public comment on requiring State grantees to provide household-level data for this effort. ACF didn’t receive comments on this notice. Annual Burden Estimates The table below shows the estimated reporting burden for the RECS LIHEAP administrative data matching effort. These estimates are based on a small number of interviews with grantees. E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), federal agencies must obtain approval from 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of 
information they conduct or sponsor. The term ``collection of

[[Page 17168]]

information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and 
includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public 
submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 
Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires 
federal agencies to publish a 30-day notice in the Federal Register 
concerning each proposed collection of information, including each 
proposed extension or reinstatement of an existing collection of 
information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To 
comply with this requirement, CMS is publishing this notice that 
summarizes the following proposed collection(s) of information for 
public comment:
    1. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently 
approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicaid and CHIP 
Program (MACPro); Use: The MACPro system is being transitioned to 
become the system of record that will be used by both state and CMS 
officials to: Improve the state application and federal review 
processes, improve federal program management of Medicaid programs and 
CHIP, and standardize Medicaid program data. Specifically, it will be 
used by state agencies to: Submit and amend Medicaid state plans, CHIP 
state plans and ADPs (Information System Advanced Planning Documents); 
submit applications and amendments for state waivers, demonstrations, 
and benchmark and grant programs; and submit reporting data.
    Among the collections submitted for approval under MACPro will be 
relevant collections that are currently approved under our generic 
umbrella information collection request (CMS-10398; OMB control number 
0938-1148), certain collections approved as a regular stand-alone 
information collections, and upcoming collections. A list of those 
collections is included in our PRA package.
    While currently approved by OMB under the regular PRA process which 
requires 60- and 30-day comment periods, CMS is proposing to have the 
umbrella of MACPro collections approved under OMB's generic process 
which would--in most cases--eliminate the need for the 60- and 30-day 
comment periods. Although the formal 60- and 30-day public comment 
periods would be eliminated, the public may continue to comment on any 
of the MACPro collections at any time.
    Form Number: CMS-10434 (OMB control number: 0938-1188); Frequency: 
Monthly, yearly, quarterly, semi-annually, once, or occasionally; 
Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of 
Respondents: 56; Total Annual Responses: 3,360; Total Annual Hours: 
96,844. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Annette 
Pearson at 410-786-6858).
