Proposed Project: Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) (OMB No. 0930– 0335)—Extension The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting an extension to collect the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) data collection (OMB No. 0930– 0335), which expires on April 30, 2022. TEDS is a compilation of client-level substance use treatment admission and discharge data submitted by states on clients treated in facilities that receive state funds. SAMHSA is also requesting an extension to collect the client-level mental health admission and update/ discharge data (MH–TEDS/MH–CLD) submitted by states on clients treated in facilities that receive state funds (also OMB No. 0930–0335). TEDS/MH–TEDS/MH–CLD data are collected to obtain information on the number of admissions and updates/ discharges at publicly funded substance use treatment and mental health services facilities and on the characteristics of clients receiving services at those facilities. TEDS/MH–TEDS/MH–CLD also monitor trends in the demographic, substance use, and mental health characteristics of admissions. In addition, several of the data elements used to calculate performance measures for the Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) and Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) applications are collected through the TEDS/MH–TEDS/MH–CLD. Most states collect the TEDS/MH– TEDS/MH–CLD data elements from their treatment providers for their own administrative purposes and are able to submit a cross-walked extract of their data to TEDS/MH–TEDS/MH–CLD. No changes are expected in the TEDS/MH– TEDS/MH–CLD data elements that are collected.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:09 Aug 31, 2021 Jkt 253001 The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA) will monitor program performance of its Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Programs. The TTAs disseminate current behavioral health services research from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institute of Justice, and other sources, as well as other SAMHSA programs. To accomplish this, the TTAs develop and update state-of-the-art, research-based curricula and professional development training. The TTAs hold a variety of events: Technical assistance events, meetings, trainings, presentations and learning collaboratives. A TTA technical assistance event is defined as a jointly planned consultation generally involving a series of contacts between the TTA and an outside organization/ institution during which the TTA program provides expertise and gives direction toward resolving a problem or improving conditions. Technical assistance events can be categorized into universal, targeted, and intensive. Other TTA events such as meetings, training, strategic planning and learning collaboratives are utilized to support technical assistance. These events are TTA-sponsored or co-sponsored events in which a group of people representing one or more agencies other than the TTA program work cooperatively on a project, problem, and/or policy. SAMHSA intends to use three (3) instruments for program monitoring of TTA events as well as ongoing quality improvement, which are described below. 1. Event Description Form (EDF): The EDF collects event information. This instrument asks approximately 10 questions of TTA faculty/staff relating to the event focus and format. It allows the PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 TTCs and SAMHSA to track the number of events held (See Attachment 1). 2. TTA Post Event Form: The Post Event Form will be administered immediately following the event. It asks approximately 15 questions of each individual that participated in the event (Attachment 2). The instrument asks the participants to report on general demographic information (gender, sexual orientation, race, level of education, primary profession), principal employment setting, employment zip code, satisfaction with the event, if they expect the event to benefit them professionally, if they expect the event to change their practice and if they would recommend the event to a colleague. 3. TTA Follow-up Form: The Followup Form will be administered 60-days after all events that last a minimum of three (3) hours. The form will be administered to a minimum of 25% of participants who consent to participate in the follow-up process. The form asks about 14 questions (Attachment 3). The instrument asks the participants to report if the information provided in at the event benefited their professional development, will change their practice, if they will use the information in their future work, if information will be shared with colleagues, how the event supported their work responsibilities, how the TTA program can improve the events, what other topics would participants like to see TTCs address and in what format. The information collected on the TTA program forms will assist SAMHSA in documenting the numbers and types of participants in TTA events, describing the extent to which participants report improvement in their professional development, and which method is most effective in disseminating knowledge to various audiences. This type of information is crucial to support SAMHSA in complying with GPRA reporting requirements and will inform future development of knowledge dissemination activities.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration


Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed 
collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health 
Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects 
or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer at (240) 276-0361.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of 
information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions 
of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) (OMB No. 0930-
0335)--Extension

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) is requesting an extension to collect the Treatment Episode 
Data Set (TEDS) data collection (OMB No. 0930-0335), which expires on 
April 30, 2022. TEDS is a compilation of client-level substance use 
treatment admission and discharge data submitted by states on clients 
treated in facilities that receive state funds. SAMHSA is also 
requesting an extension to collect the client-level mental health 
admission and update/discharge data (MH-TEDS/MH-CLD) submitted by 
states on clients treated in facilities that receive state funds (also 
OMB No. 0930-0335).
    TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD data are collected to obtain information on the 
number of admissions and updates/discharges at publicly funded 
substance use treatment and mental health services facilities and on 
the characteristics of clients receiving services at those facilities.
    TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD also monitor trends in the demographic, 
substance use, and mental health characteristics of admissions. In 
addition, several of the data elements used to calculate performance 
measures for the Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) and Mental Health 
Block Grant (MHBG) applications are collected through the TEDS/MH-TEDS/
MH-CLD.
    Most states collect the TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD data elements from 
their treatment providers for their own administrative purposes and are 
able to submit a cross-walked extract of their data to TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-
CLD. No changes are expected in the TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD data elements 
that are collected.
    Estimated annual burden for the separate TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD 
activities is as follows:
