    Proposed Project: Division of State Programs—Management Reporting Tool (DSP-MRT) (OMB No. 0930-0354)—Revision

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) aims to monitor several substance abuse prevention programs through the DSP-MRT, which reports data using the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). Programs monitored through the DSP-MRT include: SPF-Partnerships for Success, SPF- Prescription Drugs, Prescription Drug Overdose, and First Responder-Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act. This request for data collection includes a revision from a previously approved OMB instrument.

    Monitoring data using the SPF model will allow SAMHSA's project officers to systematically collect data to monitor their grant program. In addition to assessing activities related to the SPF steps, the performance monitoring instruments covered in this statement collect data to assess the following grantee required specific performance measures:

    • Number of training and technical assistance activities per funded community provided by the grantee to support communities
    • Number of training and technical assistance activities (numbers served) provided by the grantee
    • Number of subrecipient communities that improved on one or more targeted National Outcome Measures
    • Number of grantees who integrate Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) data into their program needs assessment
    • Number of naloxone toolkits distributed

    Changes to this package include the following:

    • Inclusion of Intervention names in the standard tool
    • Inclusion of Community outcomes reporting
    • Inclusion of questions on training services requested and referrals/receiving treatment services in the PDO/FR-CARA supplemental section
