Title: Assessment of the Collection, Analysis, Validation, and Reporting of SNAP Employment and Training Data project. Form Number: None. OMB Number: 0584–NEW. Expiration Date: Not yet determined. Type of Request: New collection. Abstract: Abstract: Section 17 [7 U.S.C. 2026] (a)(1) of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, provides general legislative authority for the planned data collection. It authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to enter into contracts with private institutions to undertake research that will help to improve the administration and effectiveness of SNAP in delivering nutrition-related benefits. Under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), States are required to operate an Employment and Training (E&T) program to help participants gain skills, education, training, and experience that lead to employment and greater economic selfsufficiency. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) uses several methods to collect information on State SNAP E&T programs: annual State SNAP E&T plans, quarterly FNS–583 SNAP E&T Program Activity Report data forms (OMB 0584–0594, currently undergoing review), and annual outcome reporting measures. FNS has found that reported data are often inconsistent, incomplete, and inaccurate. This makes it challenging for FNS to analyze these data to determine the outcomes of SNAP E&T participants and to assist States in improving their programs. FNS will: (1) Identify and describe the current State and Federal systems that collect, validate, and analyze E&T data; (2) assess the current and future E&T data needs of Federal, Regional, and State staff; and (3) recommend a plan to improve how Federal, Regional, and State staff collect and use data for E&T program improvement and reporting. The assessment will include two main data collection activities: (1) 10 inperson meetings with a range of staff from Federal agencies 1 to better understand the systems for collecting and analyzing SNAP E&T data, assess the current and future data needs of SNAP E&T stakeholders, and identify options to improve the collection and analysis of data; and (2) site visits in seven States to observe their SNAP E&T business, data collection, and analysis 1 Discussions with Federal agencies do not require OMB clearance and are therefore not included in the burden estimates in this notice. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65777 processes, and to assess the current and future data needs from the perspective of a range of State and local staff, including local organizations that provide E&T activities. The data collection effort will culminate in a comprehensive final report of recommendations for FNS to meet its current and future data needs for the SNAP E&T program. The report will describe the current Federal, Regional, and State data systems and processes; the current and future data needs and goals of SNAP E&T; and the gaps between the current systems and data needs. In addition, the report will recommend methods to address these gaps through changes to data systems and information technology (IT) solutions, improved business processes, and expanded technical assistance. Affected Public: FNS will reach out to eight State agencies, and anticipates that seven of these State agenices will agree to participate in the study. Approximately, 284 respondents within these seven States will be contacted to participate in the data collection. Of these 284 respondents, FNS anticipates 251 will agree to participate. Members of the public affected by the data collection include State, Local and Tribal governments and the private sector (Business-for-profit and not-forprofit). Respondent groups identified include the following: • Directors and managers from State, Local, and Tribal government agencies supporting the SNAP E&T programs (35; 32 respondents and 3 non-respondents). • Policy staff from State, Local, and Tribal government agencies supporting the SNAP E&T programs (28; 26 respondents and 2 non-respondents). • Frontline staff from State, Local, and Tribal government agencies providing direct services to SNAP E&T participants (56; 50 respondents and 6 non-respondents). • Data and IT staff from State, Local, and Tribal government agencies supporting the E&T programs (28; 26 respondents and 2 non-respondents). • Directors and managers from private sector for-profit businesses providing SNAP E&T services (21; 18 repondents and 3 non-respondents). • Frontline staff from private sector for-profit businesses providing SNAP E&T services (21; 18 repondents and 3 non-respondents). • Data and IT staff from private sector for-profit businesses providing SNAP E&T services (11; 9 respondents and 2 non-respondents). • Directors and managers from private sector not-for-profit agencies providing SNAP E&T services (35; 30 respodnets and 5 non-respondents).

    Title: Assessment of the Collection, Analysis, Validation, and 
Reporting of SNAP Employment and Training Data project.
    Form Number: None.
    OMB Number: 0584-NEW.
    Expiration Date: Not yet determined.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Abstract: Abstract: Section 17 [7 U.S.C. 2026] (a)(1) of the Food 
and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, provides general legislative 
authority for the planned data collection. It authorizes the Secretary 
of Agriculture to enter into contracts with private institutions to 
undertake research that will help to improve the administration and 
effectiveness of SNAP in delivering nutrition-related benefits.
    Under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), States 
are required to operate an Employment and Training (E&T) program to 
help participants gain skills, education, training, and experience that 
lead to employment and greater economic self-sufficiency. The U.S. 
Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) uses 
several methods to collect information on State SNAP E&T programs: 
annual State SNAP E&T plans, quarterly FNS-583 SNAP E&T Program 
Activity Report data forms (OMB 0584-0594, currently undergoing 
review), and annual outcome reporting measures. FNS has found that 
reported data are often inconsistent, incomplete, and inaccurate. This 
makes it challenging for FNS to analyze these data to determine the 
outcomes of SNAP E&T participants and to assist States in improving 
their programs.
    FNS will: (1) Identify and describe the current State and Federal 
systems that collect, validate, and analyze E&T data; (2) assess the 
current and future E&T data needs of Federal, Regional, and State 
staff; and (3) recommend a plan to improve how Federal, Regional, and 
State staff collect and use data for E&T program improvement and 
reporting. The assessment will include two main data collection 
activities: (1) 10 in-person meetings with a range of staff from 
Federal agencies \1\ to better understand the systems for collecting 
and analyzing SNAP E&T data, assess the current and future data needs 
of SNAP E&T stakeholders, and identify options to improve the 
collection and analysis of data; and (2) site visits in seven States to 
observe their SNAP E&T business, data collection, and analysis 
processes, and to assess the current and future data needs from the 
perspective of a range of State and local staff, including local 
organizations that provide E&T activities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Discussions with Federal agencies do not require OMB 
clearance and are therefore not included in the burden estimates in 
this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The data collection effort will culminate in a comprehensive final 
report of recommendations for FNS to meet its current and future data 
needs for the SNAP E&T program. The report will describe the current 
Federal, Regional, and State data systems and processes; the current 
and future data needs and goals of SNAP E&T; and the gaps between the 
current systems and data needs. In addition, the report will recommend 
methods to address these gaps through changes to data systems and 
information technology (IT) solutions, improved business processes, and 
expanded technical assistance.
    Affected Public: FNS will reach out to eight State agencies, and 
anticipates that seven of these State agenices will agree to 
participate in the study. Approximately, 284 respondents within these 
seven States will be contacted to participate in the data collection. 
Of these 284 respondents, FNS anticipates 251 will agree to 
participate. Members of the public affected by the data collection 
include State, Local and Tribal governments and the private sector 
(Business-for-profit and not-for-profit). Respondent groups identified 
include the following:
     Directors and managers from State, Local, and Tribal 
government agencies supporting the SNAP E&T programs (35; 32 
respondents and 3 non-respondents).
