Start Preamble

Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.

Project: State Opioid Response (SOR) and Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) Program Data Collection and Performance Measurement—NEW

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for data collection activities associated with the State Opioid Response (SOR) and Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) discretionary grant programs. Approval of this information collection will allow SAMHSA to continue to meet the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRMA) reporting requirements that quantify the effects and accomplishments of its discretionary grant programs which are consistent with OMB guidance. Information collected through this request will be used to monitor performance throughout the grant period.

There will be up to 359 award recipients (states, territories, and tribal entities) in these grant programs. Grantee-level data will include information related to naloxone purchases and distribution. This grantee-level information will be collected quarterly.

All funded states/territories and tribal entities will also be required to collect and report client-level data on individuals who are receiving opioid treatment and/or recovery services to ensure program goals and objectives are being met. Client-level data will include information such as: Demographic Start Printed Page 63522information, services planned/received, mental health/substance use disorder diagnoses, medical status, employment status, substance use, legal status, and psychiatric status/symptoms. Client-level data will be collected at intake/baseline, three months post intake, six months post intake, and at discharge.

CSAT anticipates that the time required to collect and report the grantee-level information is approximately 10 minutes per response, and the time required to collect and report the client-level data is approximately 47 minutes per response. CSAT's estimate of the burden associated with the client-level instrument includes an adjustment for data elements that are currently being collected by entities that are likely to be funded by the SOR/TOR grant programs.
