Proposed Project: The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network

    The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) 
necessitates certain recordkeeping and reporting requirements in order 
to perform the functions related to organ transplantation under 
contract to HHS. OMB requires review and approval of recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements associated with the final rule governing the 
operation of the OPTN (42 CFR Part 121) related to Secretarial review

date, no appeals have been filed. The burden requirements for this 
process are minimal. The estimate of burden for this process consists 
of preparing a letter requesting reconsideration and compiling 
supporting documentation.
