SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Copies of the complete agency forms are available from the Labor-Management Cooperation Grants Program by calling, faxing, or writing Linda Gray-Broughton at the address above. Please ask for forms by agency number. I. Information Collection Requests FMCS is seeking comments on the following information collection requests contained in FMCS agency forms. Agency: Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Form Number: OMB No. 3076–0006. Type of Request: Reinstatement of a collection without change in the substance or method of collection. Affected Entities: Potential applicants and/or grantees who received our grant application kit. Also applicants who have received a grant from FMCS. Frequency: a. Three of the forms, the SF–424, LM–6, and LM–9 are submitted at the applicant/grantee’s discretion. b. To conduct the quarterly submissions, LM–7 and LM–8 forms are used. Less than quarterly reports would deprive FMCS of the opportunity to provide prompt technical assistance to deal with those problems identified in the report. c. Once per application. The LM–3 is the only form to which a ‘‘similar information’’ requirement could apply. Acceptance of a recent audit report without deficiencies is acceptable. Abstract: Except for the FMCS Forms LM–3 and LM–9, the forms under consideration herein are either required or recommended in OMB Circulars. The two exceptions are non-recurring forms, the former a questionnaire sent only to non-public sector potential grantees and the latter a questionnaire sent only to former grantees for voluntary completion and submission. The collected information is used by FMCS to determine annual applicant suitability, to monitor quarterly grant project status, and for on-going program evaluation. If the information were not collected, there could be no accounting for the activities of the program. Actual use has been the same as intended use. Burden: The Application for Federal Assistance (SF–424) is an OMB form with no agency additions. The estimated average time burden per respondent: 30 minutes. Estimated average number of responses: 35. The Request for Advance or Reimbursement SF–270 (LM–6) and the Financial Status Report SF–269a (LM–7) are also OMB forms with no agency additions. The estimated average VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 May 11, 2017 Jkt 241001 time burden per respondent per form: 30 minutes and approximate number of responses: 20. Project Performance (LM– 8) had approximately 20 respondents and the estimated time per response is 20 minutes. FMCS Grants Program Evaluation Questionnaire (LM–9) number of respondents is approximately 10 and the estimated time per response is 60 minutes. The Accounting System and Financial Capability Questionnaire (LM–3) has approximately 20 respondents and the estimated time per response is 60 minutes. II. Request for Comments The FMCS is particularly interested in comments which: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated electronic collection technologies or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic and fax submission of responses.

    Title: National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System.
    OMB No.: 0970-0424.
    Description: The Administration on Children, Youth and Families in 
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established the 
National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) to respond to the 
1988 and 1992 amendments (Pub. L. 100-294 and Pub. L. 102-295) to the 
Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (42 U.S.C. 5101 et seq.), 
which called for the creation of a coordinated national data collection 
and analysis program, both universal and case specific in scope, to 
examine standardized data on false, unfounded, or unsubstantiated 
reports.

[[Page 22144]]

    In 1996, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act was amended 
by Public Law 104-235 to require that any state receiving the Basic 
State Grant work with the Secretary of the Department of Health and 
Human Services (HHS) to provide specific data on child maltreatment, to 
the extent practicable. These provisions were retained and expanded 
upon in the 2010 reauthorization of CAPTA (Pub. L. 111-320). Item (17) 
below was enacted with the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 
2015 (Pub. L. 114-22). The law goes into effect in 2017 and it is 
anticipated that states will begin reporting with FFY 2018 data. Item 
(18) below was enacted with the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery 
Act of 2016 (CARA) (Pub. L. 114-198). The law goes into effect in 2017 
and it is anticipated that states will begin reporting with FFY 2018

state program funded under this section or an equivalent state program; 
and
    C. the number that were removed from their families during the year 
by disposition of the case.
    4. The number of families that received preventive services, 
including use of differential response, from the state during the year.
    5. The number of deaths in the state during the year resulting from 
child abuse or neglect.
    6. Of the number of children described in paragraph (5), the number 
of such children who were in foster care.
    7.
    A. The number of child protective service personnel responsible for 
the--
    i. intake of reports filed in the previous year;
    ii. screening of such reports;
    iii. assessment of such reports; and
    iv. investigation of such reports.
    B. The average caseload for the workers described in subparagraph 
(A).
    8. The agency response time with respect to each such report with 
respect to initial investigation of reports of child abuse or neglect.
    9. The response time with respect to the provision of services to 
families and children where an allegation of child abuse or neglect has 
been made.
    10. For child protective service personnel responsible for intake, 
screening, assessment, and investigation of child abuse and neglect 
reports in the state--
    A. information on the education, qualifications, and training

professionals, including for entry and advancement in the profession, 
including advancement to supervisory positions;
    B. data of the education, qualifications, and training of such 
personnel;
    C. demographic information of the child protective service 
personnel; and
    D. information on caseload or workload requirements for such

of cases per child protective service worker and supervisor.
    11. The number of children reunited with their families or 
receiving family preservation services that, within five years, result 
in subsequent substantiated reports of child abuse or neglect, 
including the death of the child.
    12. The number of children for whom individuals were appointed by 
the court to represent the best interests of such children and the 
average number of out of court contacts between such individuals and 
children.
    13. The annual report containing the summary of activities of the 
citizen review panels of the state required by subsection (c)(6).
    14. The number of children under the care of the state child 
protection system who are transferred into the custody of the state 
juvenile justice system.
    15. The number of children referred to a child protective services 
system under subsection (b)(2)(B)(ii).
    16. The number of children determined to be eligible for referral, 
and the number of children referred, under subsection (b)(2)(B)(xxi),

    17. The number of children determined to be victims described in 
subsection (b)(2)(B)(xxiv).
    18. The number of infants identified under subsection

care was developed under subsection (b)(2)(B)(iii), and the number of 
infants identified for whom a referral was made for appropriate 
services, including services for the affected family or caregiver, 
under subsection (b)(2)(B)(iii)
    The Children's Bureau proposes to continue collecting the NCANDS 
data through the two files of the Detailed Case Data Component, the 
Child File (the case-level component of NCANDS) and the Agency File 
(additional aggregate data, which cannot be collected at the case 
level). Technical assistance will be provided so that all states may 
provide the Child File and Agency File data to NCANDS.
    The reauthorization of CAPTA, subsection (b)(2)(B)(xxiv), specifies 
for ``requiring identification and assessment of all reports involving 
children known or suspected to be victims of sex trafficking (as 
defined in section 103(10) of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 
2000 (22 U.S.C. 7102 (10)); and S. 178--38.'' To comply with the new 
reporting requirements for item 17, NCANDS will use a new field in the 
Child File.
    The Children's Bureau proposes to modify the Child File by 
modifying the maltreatment fields.
     Add a new maltreatment type code, 7 = sex trafficked, to 
the existing Fields 26, 28, 30, 32 (Maltreatment-1 Type, Maltreatment-2 
Type, Maltreatment-3 Type, Maltreatment-4 Type).
    The reauthorization of CAPTA, subsection (b)(2)(B)(ii), specifies 
collecting the number of (A) screened-in and screened-out referrals 
from healthcare providers involved in the delivery or care of infants 
and who referred such infants born with and identified as being 
affected by illegal substance abuse or withdrawal symptoms resulting 
from prenatal drug exposure, or a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder; (B) 
of those screened-in, for whom a plan of safe care was developed, under 
subsection (b)(2)(B)(iii); and (C) of those screened-in, for whom a 
referral was made for appropriate services, including services for the 
affected family or caregiver, under subsection (b)(2)(B)(iii). To 
comply with the new reporting requirements for item 18, NCANDS will use 
a combination of existing fields in the Child File and a new field in 
the Agency File.
    The Children's Bureau proposes to modify the Agency File by adding 
1 new field, under Section 2, Referrals and Reports.
     2.5. Number of screened-out referrals from healthcare 
providers

involved in the delivery or care of infants and who referred such 
infants born with and identified as being affected by illegal substance 
abuse or withdrawal symptoms resulting from prenatal drug exposure, or 
a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
    The Children's Bureau proposes to modify the Child File by adding 
two new fields.
     Field 151, Has A Safe Care Plan: The Safe Care Plan field 
will establish a flag as to whether a child has a safe care plan.
     Field 152, Referral to CARA-Related Services: The Referral 
to CARA-related Services field will establish a flag as to whether a 
referral was made for appropriate services, including services for the 
affected family or caregiver.
