SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title of Collection: 2007 and 2009 Survey of Science and Engineering Research Facilities. Expiration Date of Approval: April 31, 2006. Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to renew an information collection for three years. Proposed Project: The National Science Foundation Survey of Science and Engineering Research Facilities is a Congressionally mandated (Pub. L. 99– 159), biennial survey that has been conducted since 1986. The survey collects data on the amount, condition, and costs of the physical facilities used to conduct science and engineering research. It was expected by Congress that this survey would provide the data necessary to describe the status and needs of science and engineering research facilities and to formulate appropriate solutions to documented needs. During the 2003 and 2005 survey cycles, data were collected from a population of approximately 465 research-performing colleges and universities. This survey population was supplemented with approximately 190 nonprofit biomedical research institutions receiving research support from the National Institutes of Health. Beginning with the FY 2003 cycle, a new section was added to the survey requesting information on the computing and networking capacity at the surveyed institutions, an PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 increasingly important part of the infrastructure for science and engineering research. Other important changes include updating the networking and computing section, based on technological changes and issues that may occur. Use of the Information: Analysis of the Facilities Survey data will provide updated information on the status of scientific and engineering research facilities and capabilities. The information can be used by Federal policy makers, planners, and budget analysts in making policy decisions, as well as by institutional academic officials, the scientific/engineering establishment, and state agencies and legislatures that fund universities. Burden on the Public: The Facilities Survey will be sent by mail to approximately 465 academic institutions and 190 nonprofit research organizations and hospitals. The completion time per academic institution is expected to average 41 hours and the completion time per research organization/hospitals is expected to average 7 hours. Assuming a 90% response rate, this would result in an estimated burden of 17,159 hours for academic institutions and 1,197 hours for nonprofit research organizations/hospitals.
