Needs and Uses: The Commission adopted the Contest Rule in 1976 to address concerns about the manner in which broadcast stations were conducting contests over the air. The Contest Rule generally requires stations to broadcast material contest terms fully and accurately the first time the audience is told how to participate in a contest, and periodically thereafter. In addition, stations must conduct contests substantially as announced. These information collection requirements are necessary to ensure that broadcast licensees conduct contests with due regard for the public interest. The Contest Rule permit broadcasters to meet their obligation to disclose contest material terms on an internet website in lieu of making broadcast announcements. Under the amended Contest Rule, broadcasters are required to (i) announce the relevant internet website address on air the first time the audience is told about the contest and periodically thereafter; (ii) disclose the material contest terms fully and accurately on a publicly accessible internet website, establishing a link or tab to such terms through a link or tab on the announced website’s home page, and ensure that any material terms disclosed on such a website conform in all substantive respects to those mentioned over the air; (iii) maintain contest material terms online for at least thirty days after the contest has ended; and (v) announce on air that the material terms of a contest have changed (where that is the case) within 24 hours of the change in terms on a website, and periodically thereafter, and to direct consumers to the website to review the changes.

ACTION: Request for Public Comment. AGENCY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) to Serve TANF Recipients and Other Low Income Individuals. ACF has developed a multi-pronged research and evaluation approach for the HPOG Program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and their results. Two rounds of HPOG grants have been awarded—the first in 2010 (HPOG 1.0) and the second in 2015 (HPOG 2.0). There are federal evaluations associated with each round of grants. HPOG grants provide funding to government agencies, communitybased organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, and tribalaffiliated organizations to provide education and training services to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals, including tribal members. Under HPOG 2.0, ACF provided grants to five tribal-affiliated organizations and 27 non-tribal entities. OMB previously approved data collection under OMB Control Number 0970–0462 for the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal Evaluation. The first submission, approved in August 2015, included baseline data collection instruments and the grant performance management system. A second SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66715 submission, approved in June 2017, included additional data collection for the National Evaluation impact study, the National Evaluation descriptive study, and the Tribal Evaluation. A third submission for National Evaluation impact study data collection was approved in June 2018. The proposed data collection activities described in this Federal Register Notice will provide data for the impact, descriptive, and cost benefit studies of the 27 non-tribal grantees participating in the National Evaluation of HPOG 2.0. DATES: Comments due within 60 days of publication. In compliance with the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above. ADDRESSES: Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: OPRE Reports Clearance Officer. Email address: OPREinfocollection@ acf.hhs.gov. All requests should be identified by the title of the information collection. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The National Evaluation pertains only to the 27 non-tribal grantees that received HPOG 2.0 funding. The design for the National Evaluation features an impact study, a descriptive study, and a cost benefit study. The National Evaluation is using an experimental design to measure and analyze key participant outcomes including completion of education and training, receipt of certificates and/or degrees, earnings, and employment in a healthcare career. The impact evaluation will assess the outcomes for study participants that were offered HPOG 2.0 training, financial assistance, and support services, compared to outcomes for a control group that were not offered HPOG 2.0 services. ACF and the study team estimates that the non-tribal grantees will randomize about 40,000 applicants. As detailed in the burden estimates below, the study team will only survey a subset of those randomized. The goal of the descriptive study is to describe and assess the implementation, systems change, outcomes, and other important information about the operations of the 27 non-tribal HPOG grantees, which are operating 38 distinct programs. To achieve these goals, it is E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1 66716 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 247 / Thursday, December 27, 2018 / Notices necessary to collect data about the nontribal HPOG programs’ design and implementation, HPOG partner and program networks, the composition and intensity of HPOG services received by participants, participant characteristics and HPOG experiences, and participant outputs and outcomes. The cost benefit study will estimate the costs of providing the HPOG 2.0 programs and compare the costs with gains in participant employment and earnings measured in the impact analysis. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to collect information from the 38 HPOG 2.0 programs on the cost of providing education and training and associated services. This Notice provides the opportunity to comment on proposed new information collection activities for the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation’s impact, descriptive, and cost-benefit studies. The information collection activities to be submitted in the request package include: 1. Screening Interview to identify respondents for the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study secondround telephone interviews. 2. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study second-round telephone interview guide for program management, staff, partners, and stakeholders. These interviews will confirm or update information collected in a first round of calls, approved in June 2017. The second round interviews will update or confirm any new information about the HPOG program context and about program administration, activities and services, partner and stakeholder roles and networks, and respondent perceptions of the program’s strengths. 3. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study program operator interview guide will collect information for the systems study from HPOG 2.0 programs operators. These interviews will collect information on how local service delivery systems (i.e., the economic and service delivery environment in which specific HPOG 2.0 programs operate) may have influenced HPOG program design and implementation and how HPOG 2.0 implementation may have influenced these local systems. 4. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study partner interview guide will collect information for the systems study from HPOG 2.0 partner organizations. 5. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study participant in-depth interview guide will collect qualitative information about the experiences of treatment group members participating in HPOG 2.0 program services. 6. Intermediate Follow-up Survey for the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation impact study will collect information from both treatment and control group members at the 27 non-tribal grantees, approximately 36 months after baseline data collection and random assignment. 7. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation impact study instrument for a Pilot Study of Phone-Based Skills Assessment will collect information from HPOG 2.0 study participants in a subset of nontribal grantee programs. The phonebased questionnaire will pilot an assessment of respondents’ literacy and numeracy skills to inform the selection of survey questions for inclusion in the intermediate follow-up survey. 8. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation Program Cost Survey will collect information from program staff at the 27 non-tribal grantees to support the costbenefit study. At this time, the Department does not foresee the need for any subsequent requests for clearance for the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal Evaluations. Respondents: HPOG impact study participants from the 27 non-tribal HPOG 2.0 grantees (treatment and control group); HPOG program managers; HPOG program staff; and representatives of partner agencies and stakeholders, including support service providers, educational and vocational training partners, Workforce Investment Boards, and TANF agencies.

ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is issuing an order under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) debarring Ranjan Bhandari, MD (Dr. Bhandari), for a period of 3 years from providing services in any capacity to a person that has an approved or pending drug product application. FDA bases this order on a finding that Dr. Bhandari was convicted of a misdemeanor under the FD&C Act for causing the introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of prescription drugs that were misbranded. In addition, FDA has determined that the type of conduct that served as the basis for the conviction undermines the process for the regulation of drugs. Dr. Bhandari was given notice of the proposed debarment and an opportunity to request a hearing within the timeframe prescribed by regulation. Dr. Bhandari failed to request a hearing. Dr. Bhandari’s failure to request a hearing constitutes a waiver of his right to a hearing concerning this action. DATES: This order is effective December 27, 2018. ADDRESSES: Submit applications for termination of debarment to the Dockets Management Staff (HFA–305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kenny Shade (ELEM–4144), Division of Enforcement, Food and Drug Administration, 12420 Parklawn Dr., Rockville, MD 20857, 301–796–4640. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: I. Background Section 306(b)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(b)(2)(B)(i)(I)) permits debarment of an individual if FDA finds that the individual has been VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Dec 26, 2018 Jkt 247001 convicted of a misdemeanor under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of drug products under the FD&C Act, and if FDA finds that the type of conduct that served as the basis for the conviction undermines the process for the regulation of drugs. On December 9, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, judgment was entered against Dr. Bhandari after he entered a plea of guilty to one count of misbranding in violation of section 301(a) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 331(a)), which is a misdemeanor offense under section 303(a)(1) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 333(a)(1)). FDA’s finding that debarment is appropriate is based on the misdemeanor conviction referenced herein. The factual basis for this conviction is as follows: Between June 1, 2006, and March 31, 2008, Dr. Bhandari was a physician (oncologist) in Ohio. During this time, Dr. Bhandari purchased and received oncology drugs, including ZOMETA, IRINOTECAN, ELOXATIN, GEMZAR, HYCAMTIN, ARANESP, and TAXOTERE, from a drug distributor located in Canada. These new drugs originated outside the United States and were not approved by FDA for introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce in the United States. Thus, Dr. Bhandari caused the introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of prescription drugs that were misbranded for lacking adequate directions for use in their labeling. As a result of this conviction, on August 29, 2018, FDA sent Dr. Bhandari a notice by certified mail proposing to debar him for 3 years from providing services in any capacity to a person that has an approved or pending drug product application. The proposal was based on a finding under section 306(b)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the FD&C Act, that Dr. Bhandari was convicted of a misdemeanor under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of drug products under the FD&C Act, and that the type of conduct that served as the basis for the conviction undermines the process for the regulation of drugs. The proposal offered Dr. Bhandari an opportunity to request a hearing, provided him 30 days from the date of receipt of the letter in which to file the request, and advised him that failure to request a hearing constituted a waiver of the opportunity for a hearing and of any contentions concerning this action. Dr. Bhandari received the proposal on September 4, 2018. Dr. Bhandari did not request a hearing within the timeframe prescribed by regulation and, therefore, has waived his opportunity for a hearing and has waived any contentions PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66717 concerning his debarment (21 CFR part 12). II. Findings and Order Therefore, the Director, Office of Enforcement and Import Operations, Office of Regulatory Affairs, under section 306(b)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the FD&C Act, under authority delegated to the Director (Staff Manual Guide 1410.35), finds that Dr. Bhandari has been convicted of a misdemeanor under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of drug products under the FD&C Act, and that the type of conduct that served as the basis for the conviction undermines the process for the regulation of drugs. As a result of the foregoing findings and in consideration of the factors described in section 306(c)(3) of the FD&C Act, Dr. Bhandari is debarred for a period of 3 years from providing services in any capacity to a person with an approved or pending drug product application under sections 505, 512, or 802 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355, 360b, or 382), or under section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 262), effective (see DATES) (see sections 306(c)(1)(B), (c)(3), and 201(dd) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(c)(1)(B), (c)(3), and 321(dd))). Any person with an approved or pending drug product application who knowingly employs or retains as a consultant or contractor, or otherwise uses the services of Dr. Bhandari, in any capacity during his debarment, will be subject to civil money penalties (section 307(a)(6) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335b(a)(6)). If Dr. Bhandari provides services in any capacity to a person with an approved or pending drug product application during his period of debarment he will be subject to civil money penalties (section 307(a)(7) of the FD&C Act). In addition, FDA will not accept or review any abbreviated new drug applications submitted by or with the assistance of Dr. Bhandari during his period of debarment (section 306(c)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act). Any application by Dr. Bhandari for termination of debarment under section 306(d)(1) of the FD&C Act should be identified with Docket No. FDA–2018– N–1989 and sent to the Dockets Management Staff (see ADDRESSES). All such submissions are to be filed in four copies. The public availability of information in these submissions is governed by 21 CFR 10.20(j). Publicly available submissions will be placed in the docket and will be viewable at https://www.regulations.gov or at the Dockets Management Staff (see ADDRESSES) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Administration for Children and Families


Proposed Information Collection Activity; National and Tribal 
Evaluation of the 2nd Generation of the Health Profession Opportunity 
Grants (OMB #0970-0462)

AGENCY: Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation; Administration 
for Children and Families; HHS.

ACTION: Request for Public Comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data 
collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity 
Grants (HPOG) to Serve TANF Recipients and Other Low Income 
Individuals. ACF has developed a multi-pronged research and evaluation 
approach for the HPOG Program to better understand and assess the 
activities conducted and their results. Two rounds of HPOG grants have 
been awarded--the first in 2010 (HPOG 1.0) and the second in 2015 (HPOG 
2.0). There are federal evaluations associated with each round of 
grants. HPOG grants provide funding to government agencies, community-
based organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, and 
tribal-affiliated organizations to provide education and training 
services to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients 
and other low-income individuals, including tribal members. Under HPOG 
2.0, ACF provided grants to five tribal-affiliated organizations and 27 
non-tribal entities. OMB previously approved data collection under OMB 
Control Number 0970-0462 for the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal 
Evaluation. The first submission, approved in August 2015, included 
baseline data collection instruments and the grant performance 
management system. A second submission, approved in June 2017, included 
additional data collection for the National Evaluation impact study, 
the National Evaluation descriptive study, and the Tribal Evaluation. A 
third submission for National Evaluation impact study data collection 
was approved in June 2018. The proposed data collection activities 
described in this Federal Register Notice will provide data for the 
impact, descriptive, and cost benefit studies of the 27 non-tribal 
grantees participating in the National Evaluation of HPOG 2.0.

DATES: Comments due within 60 days of publication. In compliance with 
the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting 
public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection 
described above.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the proposed collection of information can be 
obtained and comments may be forwarded by writing to the Administration 
for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and 
Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: OPRE Reports 
Clearance Officer. Email address: OPREinfocollection@acf.hhs.gov. All 
requests should be identified by the title of the information 
collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The National Evaluation 
pertains only to the 27 non-tribal grantees that received HPOG 2.0 
funding. The design for the National Evaluation features an impact 
study, a descriptive study, and a cost benefit study. The National 
Evaluation is using an experimental design to measure and analyze key 
participant outcomes including completion of education and training, 
receipt of certificates and/or degrees, earnings, and employment in a 
healthcare career. The impact evaluation will assess the outcomes for 
study participants that were offered HPOG 2.0 training, financial 
assistance, and support services, compared to outcomes for a control 
group that were not offered HPOG 2.0 services.
    ACF and the study team estimates that the non-tribal grantees will 
randomize about 40,000 applicants. As detailed in the burden estimates 
below, the study team will only survey a subset of those randomized.
    The goal of the descriptive study is to describe and assess the 
implementation, systems change, outcomes, and other important 
information about the operations of the 27 non-tribal HPOG grantees, 
which are operating 38 distinct programs. To achieve these goals, it is

[[Page 66716]]

necessary to collect data about the non-tribal HPOG programs' design 
and implementation, HPOG partner and program networks, the composition 
and intensity of HPOG services received by participants, participant 
characteristics and HPOG experiences, and participant outputs and 
outcomes.
    The cost benefit study will estimate the costs of providing the 
HPOG 2.0 programs and compare the costs with gains in participant 
employment and earnings measured in the impact analysis. To achieve 
this goal, it is necessary to collect information from the 38 HPOG 2.0 
programs on the cost of providing education and training and associated 
services.
    This Notice provides the opportunity to comment on proposed new 
information collection activities for the HPOG 2.0 National 
Evaluation's impact, descriptive, and cost-benefit studies.
    The information collection activities to be submitted in the 
request package include:
    1. Screening Interview to identify respondents for the HPOG 2.0 
National Evaluation descriptive study second-round telephone 
interviews.
    2. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study second-round 
telephone interview guide for program management, staff, partners, and 
stakeholders. These interviews will confirm or update information 
collected in a first round of calls, approved in June 2017. The second 
round interviews will update or confirm any new information about the 
HPOG program context and about program administration, activities and 
services, partner and stakeholder roles and networks, and respondent 
perceptions of the program's strengths.
    3. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study program operator 
interview guide will collect information for the systems study from 
HPOG 2.0 programs operators. These interviews will collect information 
on how local service delivery systems (i.e., the economic and service 
delivery environment in which specific HPOG 2.0 programs operate) may 
have influenced HPOG program design and implementation and how HPOG 2.0 
implementation may have influenced these local systems.
    4. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study partner interview 
guide will collect information for the systems study from HPOG 2.0 
partner organizations.
    5. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation descriptive study participant in-
depth interview guide will collect qualitative information about the 
experiences of treatment group members participating in HPOG 2.0 
program services.
    6. Intermediate Follow-up Survey for the HPOG 2.0 National 
Evaluation impact study will collect information from both treatment 
and control group members at the 27 non-tribal grantees, approximately 
36 months after baseline data collection and random assignment.
    7. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation impact study instrument for a Pilot 
Study of Phone-Based Skills Assessment will collect information from 
HPOG 2.0 study participants in a subset of non-tribal grantee programs. 
The phone-based questionnaire will pilot an assessment of respondents' 
literacy and numeracy skills to inform the selection of survey 
questions for inclusion in the intermediate follow-up survey.
    8. HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation Program Cost Survey will collect 
information from program staff at the 27 non-tribal grantees to support 
the cost-benefit study.
    At this time, the Department does not foresee the need for any 
subsequent requests for clearance for the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal 
Evaluations.
    Respondents: HPOG impact study participants from the 27 non-tribal 
HPOG 2.0 grantees (treatment and control group); HPOG program managers; 
HPOG program staff; and representatives of partner agencies and 
stakeholders, including support service providers, educational and 
vocational training partners, Workforce Investment Boards, and TANF 
agencies.
    This information collection request is for 3 years.
