In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we have submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the following requirements for emergency review.

Type of Information Collection Request: New collection; Title of Information Collection: Voluntary Sample Average Manufacturer Price (AMP) Collection; Use: Section 1927 of the Social Security Act requires each participating drug manufacturer to report quarterly product and pricing information to CMS. The DRA modified parts of Section 1927 to require that AMP be analyzed and redefined; Form Number: CMS–10205 (OMB#: 0938NEW); Frequency: Reporting—As needed; Affected Public: Business or other for-profit; Number of Respondents: 550; Total Annual Responses: 550; Total Annual Hours: 11,000.

OMB No.: 0970–0143. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting comments on plans to collect 5th-grade follow-up data on children recruited into the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation study. This study is being conducted to assess children and families when the children in the study will be 5th graders or attending the 6th year of their formal schooling. Because of the way children and families were initially recruited for the study, it will take three years to collect 5th-grade data from the full sample of children. About 30 percent of the sample will be 5th graders in spring 2007, 50 percent in spring 2008, and 20 percent in spring 2009. Data will be collected on a sample of approximately 1,900 children and families across all 17 of the Early Head Start research sites. Data collection will include a child assessment and a child interview, an interview with the child’s primary caregiver (usually the child’s mother), videotaping of mother-child interactions and a set of home observations, and a questionnaire to be completed by the child’s 5th-grade teacher. This data collection is necessitated by the mandates of the 1998 reauthorization of Head Start (Head Start Act, as amended, October 27, 1998, Section 649(d) and (e)).
