Download as PDF 27006 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 112 / Monday, June 11, 2018 / Notices 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Application to be Qualified Entity to Receive Medicare Data for Performance Measurement; Use: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted on March 23, 2010 (Pub. L. 111–148). ACA amends section 1874 of the Social Security Act by adding a new subsection (e) to make standardized extracts of Medicare claims data under Parts A, B, and D available to qualified entities to evaluate the performance of providers of services and suppliers. This is the application needed to determine an organization’s eligibility as a qualified entity. To implement the requirements outlined in the legislation, CMS established the Qualified Entity Certification Program (QECP) to evaluate an organization’s eligibility across three areas: Organizational and governance capabilities, addition of claims data from other sources (as required in the statute), and data privacy and security. This collection covers the application through which organizations provide information to CMS to determine whether they will be approved as a qualified entity. Form Number: CMS– 10394 (OMB control number: 0938– 1144); Frequency: Reporting-Yearly; Affected Public: Private Sector (State, Local, or Tribal Governments, Business or other for-profits, Not-for-Profit Institutions); Number of Respondents: 30; Total Annual Responses: 10; Total Annual Hours: 5,000. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Kari Gaare at 410–786–8612.) Dated: June 5, 2018. William N.

We are seeking regular OMB approval so that future evaluation findings may be publicly disseminated in reports, journals and at conferences to better inform the child welfare field.) Description: The Children’s Bureau (CB), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing new or expanded data collection activities as part of its Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway. Child Welfare Information Gateway (CWIG) is a service of the Children’s Bureau, a component within the Administration for Children and Families, and is dedicated to the mission of connecting professionals and concerned citizens to information on programs, research, legislation, and statistics regarding the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families. The Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway was initiated in response to Executive Order 12862 issued on September 11, 1993. The Order calls for putting customers first and striving for a customer-driven government that matches or exceeds the best service available in the private sector. To that end, CWIG’s evaluation is designed to better understand the kind and quality of information services that customers want, as well as customers’ level of satisfaction with existing services. A new Market Research Sub-Study is also being proposed as part of this submission to complement information obtained from the larger Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway. The sub-study component seeks to learn more about how child welfare professionals and students planning to enter the child welfare workforce access and consume work-related information. This national study will focus on understanding child welfare professionals’ and students’ characteristics, use of technology, and preferences for obtaining information that they use in their work. The goal of the sub-study is to provide child welfare technical assistance providers and other organizations with a better understanding of their target audiences so they can design more effective PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 products, services, and dissemination strategies to reach these populations. Data collection activities proposed for the Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway include: ten online targeted surveys designed to evaluate CWIG’s special initiative websites and other targeted website sections; ten online event surveys administered after CWIG-sponsored webinars, presentations, or other events; five focus groups (each with approximately 10 participants) with users and non-users of CWIG’s special initiative websites and other CWIG products and services; and, a general customer survey delivered via multiple modes (e.g., website, email, live chat, print, and phone). The sampling plan for the CWIG general customer survey is designed to reach the various types of customers using Child Welfare Information Gateway services such as professionals, students, and customers looking for assistance with a personal situation while reducing burden for respondents by only asking relevant questions for their backgrounds. The market research sub-study seeks to deliver surveys and conduct focus groups to gauge online information habits and preferences. The proposed market research sub-study will consist of a national online survey of child welfare professionals and students, which will be administered through four different instruments tailored for four different populations. Ten focus groups (each with 8 to 10 participants) will be used to learn more about different audiences’ habits and preferences related to child welfare information access and consumption. Respondents: The Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway will target all types of possible CWIG users including: State and local governments, the territories, service providers, Tribes and tribal organizations, grantees, researchers, and the general public seeking information and resources from Child Welfare Information Gateway via the website, mail, telephone, Live Chat, and email. The Market Research SubStudy will target child welfare professionals in state, county, tribal, and private agencies; Court Improvement Program coordinators and directors; judges and attorneys involved in child welfare-related work; and students in Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs in social work that receive Title IV–E or IV–B stipends.

    Title: The Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway.
    OMB No.: New Collection.

(Note: Some of the data collection activities proposed for the 
Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway were previously 
approved via Fast Track OMB Clearance. We are seeking regular OMB 
approval so that future evaluation findings may be publicly 
disseminated in reports, journals and at conferences to better inform 
the child welfare field.)
    Description: The Children's Bureau (CB), Administration for 
Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services (HHS) is proposing new or expanded data collection activities 
as part of its Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway.
    Child Welfare Information Gateway (CWIG) is a service of the 
Children's Bureau, a component within the Administration for Children 
and Families, and is dedicated to the mission of connecting 
professionals and concerned citizens to information on programs, 
research, legislation, and statistics regarding the safety, permanency, 
and well-being of children and families. The Evaluation of Child 
Welfare Information Gateway was initiated in response to Executive 
Order 12862 issued on September 11, 1993. The Order calls for putting 
customers first and striving for a customer-driven government that 
matches or exceeds the best service available in the private sector. To 
that end, CWIG's evaluation is designed to better understand the kind 
and quality of information services that customers want, as well as 
customers' level of satisfaction with existing services.
    A new Market Research Sub-Study is also being proposed as part of 
this submission to complement information obtained from the larger 
Evaluation of Child Welfare Information Gateway. The sub-study 
component seeks to learn more about how child welfare professionals and 
students planning to enter the child welfare workforce access and

to provide child welfare technical assistance providers and other 
organizations with a better understanding of their target audiences so 
they can design more effective products, services, and dissemination 
strategies to reach these populations.
    Data collection activities proposed for the Evaluation of Child 
Welfare Information Gateway include: ten online targeted surveys 
designed to evaluate CWIG's special initiative websites and other 
targeted website sections; ten online event surveys administered after 
CWIG-sponsored webinars, presentations, or other events; five focus 
groups (each with approximately 10 participants) with users and non-
