Abstract of Proposed Collection The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program is managed by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The CongressBundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program was inaugurated in 1983 through a bilateral agreement between the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag. The program supports the exchange of American and German young people to sustain and strengthen the American-German friendship. Currently, six U.S implementing partners are connected with German implementing partners to administer three components of the program: (1) Secondary School, (2) Vocational Studies, and (3) Young Professionals. Program activities in Germany for American participants are paid for and managed by the German government. Program activities for Germans that take place in the United States are paid for and managed by the U.S. government. PO 00000 Frm 00114 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46065 The purpose of this evaluation is to assess short- and long-term outcomes for American CBYX participants across the three components of the program, and the effect of the program on American communities which hosted German participants. The evaluation will provide evidence to ECA’s CBYX Program Team, who will be the primary user of the evaluation results, to inform programmatic decision-making on the design and implementation of the CBYX program for future participants. In order to do so, ECA has contracted DCG Communications to conduct surveys, indepth interviews, and focus groups with American alumni and with American community stakeholders. Methodology This evaluation will use a mixed methods design, integrating both quantitative and qualitative data collection and analyses. It will analyze the experiences of both American CBYX program alumni and community members using three principal methods: (1) An online survey, (2) in-depth interviews, and (3) focus groups. Due to ongoing COVID–19 restrictions and the geographic spread of potential respondents, all data collection will occur remotely (i.e., via email, over the phone, etc.). The survey and the qualitative research will happen simultaneously. Therefore, the Evaluation Team will be able to review the quantitative results as they come in, allowing for the interviewer and moderator to understand any potential contradictions in the findings and explore the data from the quantitative results in following interviews and focus groups. In addition, the interviewer and Evaluation Firm will learn from, and build off of, the insights gained from the first interviews to be able to gain even greater understanding, detail and nuance from each subsequent interview. This evaluation will draw from alumni from the inaugural program in 1983 through the 2019 cohorts, from a universe of approximately 14,000 American alumni, as well other key stakeholders. ECA has set an ambitious target of 60 percent response rate for the survey portion of the evaluation, or approximately 8,400 alumni respondents. ECA will also survey key stakeholders. Based on estimates of response rates from similar previous ECA evaluations, the evaluation will survey 840 community member respondents. The qualitative portion of the evaluation will include 80 in-depth interviews (44 with alumni and 36 with community members), 18 focus groups E:\FR\FM\17AUN1.SGM 17AUN1 46066 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 156 / Tuesday, August 17, 2021 / Notices (12 with alumni and 6 with community members).

You can find last year’s report on USTR’s website at https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/files/ reports/2020/2020USTRReportCongress ChinaWTOCompliance.pdf. The terms of China’s accession to the WTO are contained in the Protocol on the Accession of the People’s Republic of China (including its annexes) (Protocol), the Report of the Working Party on the Accession of China (Working Party Report), and the WTO agreements.

III. Public Participation Due to COVID–19, the TPSC will foster public participation via written submissions rather than an in-person hearing on China’s compliance with the commitments made in connection with its accession to the WTO.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program is managed by 
the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The Congress-
Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program was inaugurated in 1983 through 
a bilateral agreement between the U.S. Congress and the German 
Bundestag. The program supports the exchange of American and German 
young people to sustain and strengthen the American-German friendship. 
Currently, six U.S implementing partners are connected with German 
implementing partners to administer three components of the program: 
(1) Secondary School, (2) Vocational Studies, and (3) Young 
Professionals. Program activities in Germany for American participants 
are paid for and managed by the German government. Program activities 
for Germans that take place in the United States are paid for and 
managed by the U.S. government.
    The purpose of this evaluation is to assess short- and long-term 
outcomes for American CBYX participants across the three components of 
the program, and the effect of the program on American communities 
which hosted German participants. The evaluation will provide evidence 
to ECA's CBYX Program Team, who will be the primary user of the 
evaluation results, to inform programmatic decision-making on the 
design and implementation of the CBYX program for future participants. 
In order to do so, ECA has contracted DCG Communications to conduct 
surveys, in-depth interviews, and focus groups with American alumni and 
with American community stakeholders.

Methodology

    This evaluation will use a mixed methods design, integrating both 
quantitative and qualitative data collection and analyses. It will 
analyze the experiences of both American CBYX program alumni and 
community members using three principal methods: (1) An online survey, 
(2) in-depth interviews, and (3) focus groups. Due to ongoing COVID-19 
restrictions and the geographic spread of potential respondents, all 
data collection will occur remotely (i.e., via email, over the phone, 
etc.).
    The survey and the qualitative research will happen simultaneously. 
Therefore, the Evaluation Team will be able to review the quantitative 
results as they come in, allowing for the interviewer and moderator to 
understand any potential contradictions in the findings and explore the 
data from the quantitative results in following interviews and focus 
groups. In addition, the interviewer and Evaluation Firm will learn 
from, and build off of, the insights gained from the first interviews 
to be able to gain even greater understanding, detail and nuance from 
each subsequent interview.
    This evaluation will draw from alumni from the inaugural program in 
1983 through the 2019 cohorts, from a universe of approximately 14,000 
American alumni, as well other key stakeholders. ECA has set an 
ambitious target of 60 percent response rate for the survey portion of 
the evaluation, or approximately 8,400 alumni respondents. ECA will 
also survey key stakeholders. Based on estimates of response rates from 
similar previous ECA evaluations, the evaluation will survey 840 
community member respondents.
    The qualitative portion of the evaluation will include 80 in-depth 
interviews (44 with alumni and 36 with community members), 18 focus 
groups

[[Page 46066]]

(12 with alumni and 6 with community members). With up to eight 
participants per focus group, there will be roughly 144 focus group 
participants maximum in addition to the 80 interview participants, with 
a total of approximately 224 qualitative participants. Recruitment will 
ensure representation across cohort years as well as implementing 
partners and will attempt to have broad geographic coverage.
