Russell National School Lunch Act of 1946 (42 U.S.C. 1751 et seq.), and the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 (42 U.S.C. 1771 et seq.) provide the legislative authority for the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to administer the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). These programs provide Federal financial assistance and USDA Foods to public and non-profit private schools and residential childcare institutions to facilitate serving meals that meet nutritional standards. In accordance with Federal regulations, School Food Authorities (SFA) collect a range of required and reported basic data elements that the States and FNS use to monitor program reach, efficiency, and implementation, but they also collect additional data, which the SFAs need to manage their own operations. SFAs and States have migrated from paper-based processes to Management Information Systems (MIS) of varying levels of sophistication for the management of their data. FNS is conducting the Review of Child Nutrition Data and Analysis for Program Management Study to document the current status of the SFAs’ and the State’s NSLP/SBP MIS. Need and Use of the Information: The data collected from this voluntary study will be used to evaluate the available data elements that State agencies and SFAs collect for the operation of the NSLP and SBP. FNS will use the results of this study to identify specific data elements that could improve and streamline reporting to FNS to improve program oversight. The information gathered from the study will also be used to provide technical assistance to State agencies and SFAs and to develop MIS best practices.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 85509 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Aquaculture Surveys. OMB Control Number: 0535–0150. Expiration Date: June 30, 2017. Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to revise and extend a currently approved information collection for a period of three years. Abstract: The primary objective of the National Agricultural Statistics Service is to prepare and issue state and national estimates of crop and livestock production, prices, and disposition. The Aquaculture Surveys program produces estimates at the national level on both trout and catfish. Survey results are used by government agencies and others in planning farm programs. The trout survey includes inventory counts, sales (dollars, pounds, and quantities), percent of product sold by outlet at the point of first sale, number of fish raised for release into open waters, and losses. The catfish surveys include inventory counts, water surface acreage used for production, sales (dollars, pounds, and quantities), and losses. • Twenty-five states are in the Trout Production Survey. In January, data are collected in the selected states that produce and either sell or distribute trout. State, federal, tribal, and other facilities where trout are raised for conservation, restoration, or recreational purposes are included in the survey. • Nine states are in the Catfish Production Survey. Data are collected from farmers in January for inventory, water surface acreage, and previous year sales. In addition, farmers in the three major catfish producing states are surveyed in July for mid-year inventory and water surface acreage. • The surveys conducted in Florida, Hawaii, and Pennsylvania are conducted under cooperative agreements with each of these states. • All of the surveys conducted under this approval will have voluntary reporting, with the exception of the Pennsylvania survey. The Pennsylvania State Government requires producers to respond to this survey. The Catfish Feed Deliveries and Catfish Processing surveys that are present in the current information collection were discontinued due to budget sequestration in 2013. The information that was collected by these two surveys is now being collected and published by the Catfish Institute in their bimonthly publication Catfish Journal. Authority: These data will be collected under the authority of 7 U.S.C. 2204(a). Individually identifiable data collected under this authority are governed by Section 1770 of the Food E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1
