SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The Evaluation of the Child Welfare Capacity Building Collaborative is sponsored by the Children’s Bureau, Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Capacity Building Collaborative includes three centers (Center for States, Center for Tribes, E:\FR\FM\24APN1.SGM 24APN1 17169 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 79 / Wednesday, April 24, 2019 / Notices Center for Courts) funded by the Children’s Bureau to provide national child welfare expertise and evidenceinformed training and technical assistance services to state, tribal and territorial public child welfare agencies and Court Improvement Programs (CIPs). The Centers offer a wide array of services including, but not limited to: Web-based content and resources, product development and dissemination, self-directed and groupbased training, virtual learning and peer networking events, and tailored consultation and coaching. During the project period, Center services are evaluated by both Center-specific evaluations and a Cross-Center Evaluation. The Center-specific evaluations are designed to collect data on Center-specific processes and outcomes, which are used to support service delivery and continuous quality improvement. The Cross-Center Evaluation is designed to respond to a set of cross-cutting evaluation questions posed by the Children’s Bureau. The Cross-Center Evaluation examines: How and to what extent key partners across and within Centers collaborate; whether Center capacity building service interventions are evaluable; the degree to which Centers follow common protocols; what service interventions are delivered and in what services do jurisdictions participate; how satisfied recipients are with services; what outcomes are achieved in jurisdictions receiving Center services and under what conditions are services effective; and what are the costs of services. The Cross-Center Evaluation uses a longitudinal, mixed methods approach to evaluate Center services as they develop and mature over the course of the study. Multiple data collection strategies are used to efficiently capture quantitative and qualitative data to enable analyses that address each evaluation question. Cross-Center Evaluation data sources for this effort include (1) satisfaction surveys to assess recipient satisfaction with services, such as the Learning Experiences Satisfaction Survey; (2) a leadership interview used to assess perceptions of state child welfare directors, tribal child welfare directors, and CIP directors; and (3) a web-based collaboration survey used to assess perceptions of collaboration within and between the capacity building centers. Center-specific data sources for this effort include (1) assessment tools such as the Center for Tribes Needs and Fit Exploration Tools; and (2) service-specific feedback forms, such as the Center for States Intensive Projects instrument and the Center for Courts CQI Workshops instrument. Respondents: Respondents of data collection instruments include (1) child welfare and judicial professionals who use the Collaborative’s products and online courses, that participate in webinars, virtual or in-person trainings, or peer events, and that receive brief or intensive tailored services from the Centers; (2) all State child welfare directors, and Tribal child welfare directors, and CIP coordinators that receive services from the Centers; and (3) directors and staff of the three Capacity Building Centers.

ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Fax written comments on the collection of information by May 24, 2019. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, Fax: 202– 395–7285, or emailed to oira_ submission@omb.eop.gov. All comments should be identified with the OMB control number 0910–0021. Also include the FDA docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: JonnaLynn Capezzuto, Office of Operations, Food and Drug Administration, Three White Flint North, 10A–12M, 11601 Landsdown St., North Bethesda, MD 20852, 301–796– 3794, PRAStaff@fda.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. SUMMARY: Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificate OMB Control Number 0910–0021— Revision Under section 243 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 243) FDA is required to cooperate with and aid State and local authorities in the enforcement of their health regulations, and is authorized to assist States in the prevention and suppression of communicable diseases. Under this authority, we participate with State regulatory agencies, some foreign nations, and the molluscan shellfish industry in the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP). NSSP is a voluntary, cooperative program to promote the safety of molluscan shellfish by providing for the classification and patrol of shellfish growing waters and for the inspection and certification of shellfish processors. Each NSSP-participating State and foreign nation monitors its molluscan shellfish processors and for purposes of interstate or international commerce issues certificates for those that meet the State or foreign shellfish control authority’s criteria. Each participating State and nation provides a certificate of its certified shellfish processors to FDA on Form FDA 3038, ‘‘Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificate.’’ We use this information to publish the ‘‘Interstate Certified Shellfish Shippers List,’’ a monthly comprehensive listing of all molluscan shellfish processors certified under the cooperative program. If we did not collect the information necessary to compile this list, participating States would not be able to identify and keep out shellfish processed by uncertified processors in other States and foreign nations. Consequently, NSSP would not be able to control the distribution of uncertified and possibly unsafe shellfish in interstate and international commerce, and its effectiveness would be nullified. In the Federal Register of March 9, 2018 (83 FR 10487), we published a notice seeking comment on a proposed determination that the European Union’s (EU’s) system of food safety control measures for raw bivalve molluscan shellfish intended for export into the United States, as adopted and implemented in Spain and the Netherlands, provides at least the same level of sanitary protection as the United States equivalent. If finalized, such a determination would permit the importation of shellfish harvested from certain European production areas and processed by European establishments that have been listed by FDA on the Interstate Certified Shellfish Shippers List. The March 9, 2018, notice also described the European Commission’s (EC’s) determination that the United States’ system is equivalent to its own, and as a result of that determination, its stated intent to accept shellfish from certain growing areas in the United States. On November 6, 2018, the EC published Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1668 which added the United States (MA and WA only) to the list of Third Countries from which molluscan shellfish imports are permitted. Shellfish harvested from growing areas with an Approved classification in those states are eligible for export to the EU. As part of the equivalence determination, the EC identified the need for FDA to provide documentation collected from NSSP-participating shellfish control authorities seeking recognition under the EC’s equivalence determination. This documentation includes: • A list of growing areas with an Approved classification, • The most recent sanitary survey for each growing area with an Approved classification, and • The most recent inspection report for each firm seeking to export shellfish to the EU. For NSSP-Participants that do not produce live/raw shellfish required documentation is limited to the most recent Plant and Shipping Element Program Evaluation Report and the most recent inspection report for each shellfish processing firm to be listed for export to the EU. In the Federal Register of June 8, 2018 (83 FR 26699), we published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received. We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows: jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Activity FDA form No. Submission of Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Description: The Evaluation of the Child Welfare Capacity Building 
Collaborative is sponsored by the Children's Bureau, Administration for 
Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services. The Capacity Building Collaborative includes three centers 
(Center for States, Center for Tribes,

[[Page 17169]]

Center for Courts) funded by the Children's Bureau to provide national 
child welfare expertise and evidence-informed training and technical 
assistance services to state, tribal and territorial public child 
welfare agencies and Court Improvement Programs (CIPs). The Centers 
offer a wide array of services including, but not limited to: Web-based 
content and resources, product development and dissemination, self-
directed and group-based training, virtual learning and peer networking 
events, and tailored consultation and coaching. During the project 
period, Center services are evaluated by both Center-specific 
evaluations and a Cross-Center Evaluation. The Center-specific 
evaluations are designed to collect data on Center-specific processes 
and outcomes, which are used to support service delivery and continuous 
quality improvement. The Cross-Center Evaluation is designed to respond 
to a set of cross-cutting evaluation questions posed by the Children's 
Bureau. The Cross-Center Evaluation examines: How and to what extent 
key partners across and within Centers collaborate; whether Center 
capacity building service interventions are evaluable; the degree to 
which Centers follow common protocols; what service interventions are 
delivered and in what services do jurisdictions participate; how 
satisfied recipients are with services; what outcomes are achieved in 
jurisdictions receiving Center services and under what conditions are 
services effective; and what are the costs of services.
    The Cross-Center Evaluation uses a longitudinal, mixed methods 
approach to evaluate Center services as they develop and mature over 
the course of the study. Multiple data collection strategies are used 
to efficiently capture quantitative and qualitative data to enable 
analyses that address each evaluation question. Cross-Center Evaluation 
data sources for this effort include (1) satisfaction surveys to assess 
recipient satisfaction with services, such as the Learning Experiences 
Satisfaction Survey; (2) a leadership interview used to assess 
perceptions of state child welfare directors, tribal child welfare 
directors, and CIP directors; and (3) a web-based collaboration survey 
used to assess perceptions of collaboration within and between the 
capacity building centers. Center-specific data sources for this effort 
include (1) assessment tools such as the Center for Tribes Needs and 
Fit Exploration Tools; and (2) service-specific feedback forms, such as 
the Center for States Intensive Projects instrument and the Center for 
Courts CQI Workshops instrument.
    Respondents: Respondents of data collection instruments include (1) 
child welfare and judicial professionals who use the Collaborative's 
products and online courses, that participate in webinars, virtual or 
in-person trainings, or peer events, and that receive brief or 
intensive tailored services from the Centers; (2) all State child 
welfare directors, and Tribal child welfare directors, and CIP 
coordinators that receive services from the Centers; and (3) directors 
and staff of the three Capacity Building Centers.
