Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 197 / Friday, October 9, 2020 / Notices restoration. Information collected will include the name and address of the nursery, whether it is primarily for reforestation or restoration, what current RNGR products and tools the managers use and how effective are those products and tools, and what new technologies and approaches to transferring information might better serve managers. The Social and Economic Sciences Research Center will ensure survey validity and analyze and synthesize the information so that RNGR can implement the findings. If the survey is not completed, RNGR may continue to use less effective and efficient methods to share science-based information with the managers Federal, State, Tribal, other government entities, and private nurseries and farms that produce native plant materials for reforestation and restoration. The goal of this survey is to implement more costeffective methods of technology transfer delivered to managers in the best format for them. Proposed Action The assessment will utilize survey methods. Survey data will be collected using two modes: (1) electronic (via web) and (2) mail delivered paper questionnaire. All 1,200 users of RNGR resources will be contacted with the following protocols: • The first mailing will be mailed using first class postage and will include a letter of invitation to complete the survey online with URL, access code; • Email reminders to participants (those with email addresses) will be sent approximately one week after the invitation letter. Multiple email reminders may be sent (3 days in between email waves). Email messages will be sent to one respondent at a time to minimize spam filter effect. Email messages will come from an@wsu.edu email address, which will be ‘‘white listed;’’ • The questionnaire is approximately 8 pages, printed on 2 sheets of 11x17 paper folded in half. A unique ID (access code) will be printed on the questionnaire for tracking purpose. There will be 2 separate questionnaires for the (1) user and (2) non-user groups; • Questionnaires will be mailed in 6x9 envelopes with first class postage and will include a personalized letter (containing a URL and access code for online option) and a business reply return envelope and personalized letter; • Reminder/thank you post cards or letters will be mailed 7 to 10 days after the questionnaire mailing; and • In addition, we will also attempt to contact organizations in the lists via VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Oct 08, 2020 Jkt 253001 telephone to identify the appropriate individuals to contact with regards to the survey. The phone attempts will be conducted after mailing of the paper questionnaire and will reach out to the remaining non-respondents. These phone attempts will serve as an additional reminder to complete the survey. Follow-Up Semi-Structured Interview For those who did not respond to the survey, especially those in the non-user group, we will conduct a follow up semi-structured interview via phone with audio recording. The interview will serve two main purposes (1) to determine the reason for not responding to the survey, and (2) to gather more indepth information about unmet needs or reasons for not using RNGR support services that may or may not be addressed in the quantitative survey. For those who responded to the survey, some of the responses may warrant further investigation, such as new ideas or issues that were not included in the survey questions. Each interview will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete and will be conducted after the survey data collection period is concluded. Data collected via the above methods will be summarized and analyzed in a technical report. The information will be used to refine the strategic plan for RNGR. Responsible Official The responsible official will be Kasten Dumroese, USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, 1221 South Main Street, Moscow, ID 83843. Nature of Decision To Be Made Given the purpose and need, the responsible official will determine whether the proposed actions comply with all applicable laws governing Forest Service actions and whether the proposed action meets the purpose and need for action. With this information, the responsible official must decide whether to select the proposed action or one of any other potential alternatives that may be developed, and what, if any, additional actions should be required.
