Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 217 / Friday, November 8, 2019 / Notices information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276– 1243. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Proposed Project: SAMHSA’s Publications and Digital Products Website Registration Survey (OMB No. 0930–0313)—Reinstatement The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting OMB approval for a reinstatement of SAMHSA’s Publications and Digital Products website Registration Survey, formerly under the Registration for Behavioral Health website and Resources (OMB No. 0930–0313). SAMHSA is authorized under section 501(d)(16) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa(d)(16)) to develop and distribute materials for the prevention, treatment, and recovery from mental and substance use disorders. To improve customer service and lessen the burden on the public to locate and obtain these materials, SAMHSA has developed a website that includes more than 500 free publications from SAMHSA and its component Agencies. These products are available to the public for ordering and download. When a member of the public chooses to order hard-copy publications, it is necessary for SAMHSA to collect certain customer information in order to fulfill the request. To further lessen the burden on the public and provide the level of customer service that the public has come to expect from product websites, SAMHSA has developed a voluntary 60403 registration process for its publication website that allows customers to create accounts. Through these accounts, SAMHSA customers are able to access their order histories and save their shipping addresses. During the website registration process, SAMHSA will also ask customers to provide optional demographic information that helps SAMHSA to evaluate the use and distribution of its publications and improve services to the public. SAMHSA is employing a web-based form for information collection to avoid duplication and unnecessary burden on customers who register for an account. Customer information is submitted electronically via web forms on the samhsa.gov domain. Customers can submit the web forms at their leisure, or call SAMHSA’s toll-free Call Center and an information specialist will submit the forms on their behalf. The electronic collection of information reduces the burden on the respondent and streamlines the data-capturing process. SAMHSA estimates the burden of this information collection as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN Number of respondents Annual frequency per response Total annual responses Hours per response Total hours 21,082 1 21,082 .033 (2 min.) 696 Website Registration Survey ...............................................
