    Overview of this information collection:
    (1) Type of Information Collection: New collection.
    (2) The Title of the Form/Collection: National Survey of Victim 
Service Providers
    (3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection: The form number for the 
collection is NSVSP-1 (note, there will be no hard copy of the NSVSP 
instrument, the survey will be completed online or over the phone). The 
applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Bureau of 
Justice Statistics, in the Office of Justice Programs.
    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: A sample of agencies serving crime victims as 
their primary function or through dedicated staff or programs will be 
asked to respond. The National Survey of Victim Service Providers will 
gather data on the number of victims served by type of crime, victim 
characteristics, types of services provided, criminal justice and 
community relationships, service gaps, and VSP staff size, turnover, 
and characteristics. BJS plans to publish information from the NSVSP in 
reports and reference it when responding to queries from the U.S. 
Congress, Executive Office of the President, the U.S. Supreme Court, 
partner federal agencies (e.g., Office for Victims of Crime), state 
officials, international organizations, researchers, students, the 
media, and others interested in criminal justice statistics.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: A total of 
8,067 victim service providers will be asked to respond to the survey. 
An estimated 5% of entities will no longer be in business or no longer 
serving victims. For ineligible respondents the survey will take less 
than 5 minutes to complete. Among active victim service providers, the 
expected response rate is 70%. For these 5,365 active victim service 
providers that decide to participate, it will take an average of 45 
minutes to complete the survey.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: There are an estimated 4,058 total burden hours 
associated with this collection.
