The provision is among the representations and certifications that are available for completion in the System for Award Management (SAM). C. Annual Burden Respondents: 430,324.

All requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the information collection. 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, and 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, which 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 which 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 study period. 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 for which an extension is being sought include: (1) A foundational assessment to capture contextual data regarding the organizational health and functioning of child welfare agencies and courts; (2) a workshop follow-up survey that examines short-term and intermediate outcomes among CIPs that receive different levels of tailored services following continuous quality improvement (CQI) workshops, and (3) a tailored services satisfaction survey. Center-specific data sources for this effort include: (1) Registration forms for webinar registration and CapLearn, a learning management system; and (2) service-specific feedback forms and interviews, such as the Center for States Tailored Services interview protocol, the Center for States Innovation survey, and the Center for Courts Universal and Constituency Services survey. Respondents: (1) Child welfare agency staff and stakeholders who directly receive services from Centers; and (2) CIP coordinators, CIP Directors, and other project staff.

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, and 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, which 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 which 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 study period. Multiple data collection strategies are used to 
efficiently capture quantitative and qualitative data to enable 
analyses that address each evaluation question. Cross-Center Evaluation

short-term and intermediate outcomes among CIPs that receive different 
levels of tailored services following continuous quality improvement 
(CQI) workshops, and (3) a tailored services satisfaction survey. 
Center-specific data sources for this effort include: (1) Registration 
forms for webinar registration and CapLearn, a learning management 
system; and (2) service-specific feedback forms and interviews, such as 
the Center for States Tailored Services interview protocol, the Center
