helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired 
format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, 
collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of 
collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. 
Currently, the Indian Health Service (IHS) is providing a 60-day 
advance opportunity for public comment on a proposed extension of
