Project: Registration for Behavioral Health Web Site and Resources (OMB No. 0930–0313)—Extension The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting OMB approval for an extension to the Behavioral Health Web site and Resources data collection. SAMHSA is authorized under section 501(d)(16) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa(d)(16)) to develop and distribute materials for the prevention, treatment, and recovery from substance abuse and mental health disorders. To improve customer service and lessen the burden on the public to locate and obtain these materials, SAMHSA has developed a Web site that includes more than 1,400 free publications from SAMHSA and its component Agencies: The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, the Center for Mental Health Services, the Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality, and other SAMHSA partners, such as the Office of National Drug Control Policy. These products are available to the public for ordering and download. When a member of the public chooses to order hard-copy publications, it is necessary for SAMHSA to collect certain customer information in order to fulfill the request. To further lessen the burden on the public and provide the level of customer service that the public has come to expect from product Web sites, SAMHSA has developed a voluntary registration process for its publication Web site that allows customers to create accounts. Through these accounts, SAMHSA customers are able to access their order histories and save their shipping addresses. This reduces the burden on customers of having to reidentify materials they ordered in the past and to re-enter their shipping information each time they place an order with SAMHSA. During the Web site registration process, SAMHSA also asks customers to provide optional demographic information that helps SAMHSA evaluate the use and distribution of its publications and improve services to the public. SAMHSA is employing a web-based form for information collection to avoid duplication and unnecessary burden on customers who register both for an account on the product Web site and for email updates. The Web technology allows SAMHSA to integrate the email update subscription process into the Web site account registration process. Customers who register for an account on the product Web site are given the option of being enrolled automatically to receive SAMHSA email updates. Any optional questions answered by the customer during the Web site registration process automatically are mapped to the profile generated for the email update system, thereby reducing the collection of duplicate information. SAMHSA collects all customer information submitted for Web site registration and email update subscriptions electronically via a series of Web forms on the samhsa.gov domain. Customers can submit the Web forms at their leisure, or call SAMHSA’s toll-free Call Center and an information specialist will submit the forms on their behalf. The electronic collection of information reduces the burden on the respondent and streamlines the datacapturing process. SAMHSA places Web site registration information into a Knowledge Management database and places email subscription information into a database maintained by a thirdparty vendor that serves multiple Federal agencies and the White House. Customers can change, add, or delete their information from either system at any time. The respondents are behavioral health professionals, researchers, parents, caregivers, and the general public. There are no changes to the burden or the forms. SAMHSA estimates the burden of this information collection as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN Number of respondents Annual frequency per response Total annual responses Hours per response Total hours 38,605 21,138 1 1 38,605 21,138 .033 (2 min.) ..... .017 (1 min.) ..... 1,286 359 Total ........................................................................... asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Web site Registration ........................................................

Project: Registration for Behavioral Health Web Site and Resources (OMB 
No. 0930-0313)--Extension

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) is requesting OMB approval for an extension to the Behavioral 
Health Web site and Resources data collection. SAMHSA is authorized 
under section 501(d)(16) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 
290aa(d)(16)) to develop and distribute materials for the prevention, 
treatment, and recovery from substance abuse and mental health 
disorders. To improve customer service and lessen the burden on the 
public to locate and obtain these materials, SAMHSA has developed a Web 
site that includes more than 1,400 free publications from SAMHSA and 
its component Agencies: The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, the 
Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, the Center for Mental Health 
Services, the Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality, and 
other SAMHSA partners, such as the Office of National Drug Control 
Policy. These products are available to the public for ordering and 
download. When a member of the public chooses to order hard-copy 
publications, it is necessary for SAMHSA to collect certain customer 
information in order to fulfill the request. To further lessen the 
burden on the public and provide the level of customer service that the 
public has come to expect from product Web sites, SAMHSA has developed 
a voluntary registration process for its publication Web site that 
allows customers to create accounts. Through these accounts, SAMHSA 
customers are able to access their order histories and save their 
shipping addresses. This reduces the burden on customers of having to 
re-identify materials they ordered in the past and to re-enter their 
shipping information each time they place an order with SAMHSA. During 
the Web site registration process, SAMHSA also asks customers to 
provide optional demographic information that helps SAMHSA evaluate the 
use and distribution of its publications and improve services to the 
public.
    SAMHSA is employing a web-based form for information collection to 
avoid duplication and unnecessary burden on customers who register both 
for an account on the product Web site and for email updates. The Web 
technology allows SAMHSA to integrate the email update subscription 
process into the Web site account registration process. Customers who 
register for an account on the product Web site are given the option of 
being enrolled automatically to receive SAMHSA email updates. Any 
optional questions answered by the customer during the Web site 
registration process automatically are mapped to the profile generated 
for the email update system, thereby reducing the collection of 
duplicate information.
    SAMHSA collects all customer information submitted for Web site 
registration and email update subscriptions electronically via a series 
of Web forms on the samhsa.gov domain. Customers can submit the Web 
forms at their leisure, or call SAMHSA's toll-free Call Center and an 
information specialist will submit the forms on their behalf. The 
electronic collection of information reduces the burden on the 
respondent and streamlines the data-capturing process. SAMHSA places 
Web site registration information into a Knowledge Management database 
and places email subscription information into a database maintained by 
a third-party vendor that serves multiple Federal agencies and the 
White House. Customers can change, add, or delete their information 
from either system at any time.
    The respondents are behavioral health professionals, researchers, 
parents, caregivers, and the general public.
    There are no changes to the burden or the forms.
    SAMHSA estimates the burden of this information collection as 
follows:
