For example, teams may interview government employees if the solution is intended to improve how government employees do their work. On the other hand, teams may interview individuals who work industry and businesses if the teams determines that they are the intended beneficiaries. Using a generic information collection plan, this data collection covers qualitative information to be obtained through on-site, unstructured interviews with individuals who represent the customers or stakeholders CDC teams are attempting to serve or benefit. CDC anticipates conducting I-Catalyst with three cohorts of teams over the next two years. With each I-Catalyst cohort teams will interview their customers/ stakeholders for an average of 30 minutes. Each team will interview approximately 50 respondents. With 8– 10 teams participating in each of the three I-Catalyst training cohorts, approximately 1,500 respondents will be interviewed. Of these, approximately 40% of individuals will be internal CDC/ATSDR staff and 60% will be external partners, stakeholders, or customers. Data to be collected includes information regarding what they most value and need and their top barriers and pain points. CDC expects that teams participating in the I-Catalyst will be empowered to implement innovative strategies and solutions that create value for a set of beneficiaries. The ultimate goal of the ICatalyst program is to give CDC staff skills to successfully transfer knowledge into value-based solutions that benefit society and broaden the agency’s impact. Participation in the I-Catalyst interviews is completely voluntary. A three-year approval is requested. There is no cost to respondents other than their time.

Cohort 3: External Partners, Stakeholders, or Customers.

The demonstrations involve waivers of certain provisions of the foster care program authorized by title IV–E of the Social Security Act. Child welfare agencies in waiver jurisdictions are operating demonstrations to implement a variety of programs and interventions that serve children and families in an effort to improve their safety, permanency, and well-being. Each waiver jurisdiction is required to conduct a third-party evaluation of its demonstration. The National Study will examine the extent to which safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes have improved for children and families; the characteristics of waiver jurisdictions where improvements in outcomes have occurred; expenditure patterns and the types of activities for which waiver jurisdictions have increased funding; and the extent to which waiver jurisdictions have experienced practice and systems-level changes. The National Study uses a mixed-method approach to examine 25 waiver jurisdictions (including 23 states, the District of PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Columbia and one tribal government) with Terms and Conditions approved in Federal Fiscal years 2012, 2013, and 2014. Proposed data collection methods are two topically-focused telephone surveys: (a) A telephone survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators who are focused on measuring well-being, and (b) a second telephone survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that is focused on understanding practice and systems-level changes within child welfare service systems. Also proposed is a Web-based survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that will look more broadly at the implementation of waiver demonstrations and corresponding changes in child welfare policy, practice, and financing. Data collected through these instruments will be used by the Children’s Bureau to gain an understanding of the jurisdictions’ collective experience with implementing their demonstrations.

    Title: National Study of Title IV-E Child Welfare Waiver 
Demonstrations.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The National Study of the Title IV-E Child Welfare 
Waiver Demonstrations is sponsored by the Children's Bureau, 
Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of 
Health and Human Services and involves the conduct of a cross-site 
study of jurisdictions (referred to as waiver jurisdictions) approved 
to operate demonstrations authorized by section 1130 of the Social 
Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement 
and Innovation Act, Public Law 112-34. The demonstrations involve 
waivers of certain provisions of the foster care program authorized by 
title IV-E of the Social Security Act. Child welfare agencies in waiver 
jurisdictions are operating demonstrations to implement a variety of 
programs and interventions that serve children and families in an 
effort to improve their safety, permanency, and well-being. Each waiver 
jurisdiction is required to conduct a third-party evaluation of its 
demonstration.
    The National Study will examine the extent to which safety, 
permanency, and well-being outcomes have improved for children and 
families; the characteristics of waiver jurisdictions where 
improvements in outcomes have occurred; expenditure patterns and the 
types of activities for which waiver jurisdictions have increased 
funding; and the extent to which waiver jurisdictions have experienced 
practice and systems-level changes. The National Study uses a mixed-
method approach to examine 25 waiver jurisdictions (including 23 
states, the District of Columbia and one tribal government) with Terms 
and Conditions approved in Federal Fiscal years 2012, 2013, and 2014. 
Proposed data collection methods are two topically-focused telephone 
surveys: (a) A telephone survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives 
and evaluators who are focused on measuring well-being, and (b) a 
second telephone survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and 
evaluators that is focused on understanding practice and systems-level 
changes within child welfare service systems. Also proposed is a Web-
based survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that 
will look more broadly at the implementation of waiver demonstrations 
and corresponding changes in child welfare policy, practice, and 
financing. Data collected through these instruments will be used by the 
Children's Bureau to gain an understanding of the jurisdictions' 
collective experience with implementing their demonstrations.
    Respondents: The respondents to the Web-based survey will be a 
purposive sample of an estimated 250 waiver jurisdiction 
representatives and evaluators drawn from the 25 waiver jurisdictions

Study. The respondents to the Practice and Systems-Level Change 
telephone survey will be a purposive sample of 60 respondents 
identified from up to 12 waiver jurisdictions who are knowledgeable 
about practice, policy, and organizational changes in their respective
