ACF required the 2015 cohort of HMRF grantees—which received 5year grants in September 2015—to collect and report performance measures about program operations, services, and clients served (OMB #0970–0460). A performance measures data collection system called nFORM (Information, Family Outcomes, Reporting, and Management) was implemented with the 2015 cohort to improve the efficiency of data collection and reporting and the quality of data. This system allows for streamlined and standardized submission of grantee performance data through regular progress reports and supports granteeled and federal research projects. ACF will continue performance measure and other data collection activities for the HMRF grant program with a new cohort of grantees who received 5-year awards in September 2020. ACF is requesting comment on a new data collection to support these activities with the 2020 HMRF grantee cohort. ACF has made changes to the previous cohort’s data collection instruments and performance reports for use in the new cohort. This new grantee cohort is expected to begin collecting performance measure data and reporting to ACF in April 2021. DATES: Comments due within 60 days of publication.

ACTION: Notice. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:03 Nov 27, 2020 Jkt 253001 The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is issuing an order under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) permanently debarring John Kapoor from providing services in any capacity to a person that has an approved or pending drug product application. FDA bases this order on a finding that John Kapoor was convicted of a felony under Federal law for conduct that relates to the regulation of a drug product under the FD&C Act. John Kapoor was given notice of the proposed permanent debarment and an opportunity to request a hearing to show why he should not be debarred. Mr. Kapoor, through counsel, submitted a letter to FDA, which commented on some of the factual circumstances surrounding the case. In the letter, he also stated that he did not intend to request a hearing nor, however, would he acquiesce to debarment. As of August 26, 2020 (30 days after receipt of the notice), Mr. Kapoor has not requested a hearing. His failure to request a hearing constitutes a waiver of his right to a hearing concerning this action. DATES: This order is applicable November 30, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 306(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(a)(2)(B)) requires debarment of an individual from providing services in any capacity to a person that has an approved or pending drug product application if FDA finds that the individual has been convicted of a felony under Federal law for conduct relating to the regulation of any drug product under the FD&C Act. On January 23, 2020, Mr. Kapoor was convicted as defined in section 306(l)(1) of the FD&C Act when judgment was entered against him in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, after a jury verdict, to one count of Racketeering Conspiracy in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1962(d). The pattern of racketeering activity he was convicted of included engaging in multiple acts of mail fraud (18 U.S.C. 1341) and wire fraud (18 U.S.C. 1343). The factual basis for this conviction is as follows: Mr. Kapoor was the founder and majority owner of Insys Therapeutics Inc. (Insys), a Delaware Corporation, with headquarters in Chandler, Arizona. In addition, he held executive management positions at Insys, including Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors and, for a time, E:\FR\FM\30NON1.SGM 30NON1

Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood Performance Measures and 
Additional Data Collection (New Collection)

AGENCY: Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, Administration 
for Children and Families, HHS.

ACTION: Request for public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of 
Family Assistance (OFA), has had administrative responsibility for 
federal funding of programs that strengthen families through healthy 
marriage and relationship education and responsible fatherhood 
programming since 2006 through the Healthy Marriage (HM) and 
Responsible Fatherhood (RF) Grant Programs. ACF required the 2015 
cohort of HMRF grantees--which received 5-year grants in September 
2015--to collect and report performance measures about program 
operations, services, and clients served (OMB #0970-0460). A 
performance measures data collection system called nFORM (Information, 
Family Outcomes, Reporting, and Management) was implemented with the 
2015 cohort to improve the efficiency of data collection and reporting 
and the quality of data. This system allows for streamlined and 
standardized submission of grantee performance data through regular 
progress reports and supports grantee-led and federal research 
projects. ACF will continue performance measure and other data 
collection activities for the HMRF grant program with a new cohort of 
grantees who received 5-year awards in September 2020. ACF is 
requesting comment on a new data collection to support these activities 
with the 2020 HMRF grantee cohort. ACF has made changes to the previous 
cohort's data collection instruments and performance reports for use in 
the new cohort. This new grantee cohort is expected to begin collecting 
performance measure data and reporting to ACF in April 2021.

DATES: Comments due within 60 days of publication. In compliance with 
the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, ACF is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects 
of the information collection described above.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the proposed collection of information can be 
obtained and comments may be forwarded by emailing 
[email protected]. Alternatively, copies can also be 
obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, 
Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, 
Washington, DC 20201, Attn: OPRE Reports Clearance Officer. All 
requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the 
information collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: ACF proposes to collect a set 
of performance measures from all HMRF grantees. These measures collect 
standardized information in the following areas:
     Applicant characteristics;
     Program operations;
     Service delivery; and
     Participant outcomes:
    [cir] Entrance survey, with five versions: (1) HM Program Entrance 
Survey for Adult-Focused Programs, (2) HM Program Entrance Survey for 
Youth-Focused Programs, (3) RF Program Entrance Survey for Community-
Based Fathers, (4) RF Program Entrance Survey for Community-Based 
Mothers, and (5) RF Program Entrance Survey for Reentering Fathers.

Focused Programs, (3) RF Program Exit Survey for Community-Based 
Fathers, (4) RF Program Exit Survey for Community-Based Mothers, and 
(5) RF Program Exit Survey for Reentering Fathers.
    The measures used by the 2015 grantee cohort were developed in 2014 
after extensive review of the research literature and grantees' past 
measures. The performance measures, data collection instruments, and 
data collection system were revised in 2020 based on a targeted 
analysis of existing measures, feedback from key stakeholders, and 
discussions with ACF staff and the 2015 cohort of grantees.
    ACF required the 2015 cohort of grantees to submit data on these 
standardized measures on a quarterly basis and proposes the same 
requirement for the 2020 cohort. In addition to the performance 
measures mentioned above, ACF proposes to repeat collection for these 
data submissions:
     Semi-annual Performance Progress Report (PPR), with two 
versions: (1) Performance Progress Report for HM

Programs, and (2) Performance Progress Report for RF Programs; and
     Quarterly Performance Report (QPR), with two versions: (1)
