The proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on July 25, 2007, in Volume 72, No. 142, pages 40887–40888, and allowed 60 days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The NIH may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Proposed Collection: Title: NICHD Research Partner Satisfaction Surveys. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension without change. Need and Use of Information Collection: Executive Order 12862 directs agencies that provide significant services directly to the public to survey customers to determine the kind and quality of services they want and their level of satisfaction with existing services. With this submission, the NICHD seeks to obtain OMB’s generic approval to conduct customer satisfaction surveys surrounding its research programs and activities. The NICHD was founded in 1963. Its mission is to ensure, through research, the birth of healthy infants and the opportunity for each to reach full potential in adulthood, unimpaired by physical or mental disabilities. The NICHD conducts and supports research on the many factors that protect and enhance the process of human growth and development. The developmental focus of the NICHD means that its research portfolio is unusually broad. NICHD programs include research on infant mortality, birth defects, learning disorders, developmental disabilities, vaccine development, and demographic and behavioral sciences, among others. In addition to supporting basic research, clinical trials, and epidemiological studies that explore health processes, the NICHD forms partnerships with organizations or institutions to ensure effective use of scientific findings and research products. The NICHD utilizes strategic assessments to support Institute planning and policy development, and to help determine programmatic and scientific objectives and priorities. Research partner surveys will augment NICHD’s ongoing efforts to assess research-related activities.

Findings will be used to improve NICHD’s research programs and initiatives in the following ways: (1) To assess the effectiveness and efficiency of operations; (2) to identify opportunities for improving program performance; (3) to develop plans to incorporate innovations in program management; (4) to measure partner satisfaction and document program outcomes for governmental accountability reporting; and (5) to identify the need for creating new programs or initiatives or restructuring existing ones to respond to emerging scientific opportunities. Frequency of Response: Annual [As needed on an ongoing and concurrent basis]. Affected Public: Members of the public, researchers, practitioners, and other health professionals. Type of Respondents: Members of the public; eligible grant applicants and actual applicants (both successful and unsuccessful); clinicians and other health professionals; and actual or potential clinical trials participants. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 28,000; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours per Response: Varies with survey type, see below; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 5,883.

for the proper performance of the functions of the agency; (b) the 
accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed 
collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility,

Proposed Project: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services 
Waiver Application Requirements (OMB No. 0915-0307): Revision

    Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended by 
the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006 (Ryan White 
HIV/AIDS Program), requires that grantees expend 75 percent of Parts A, 
B, and C funds on core medical services, including antiretroviral 
drugs, for individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible under the 
legislation, effective fiscal year (FY) 2007. In order for grantees 
under Parts A, B, and C to be exempted from the 75 percent core medical 
services requirement, they must request and receive a waiver from HRSA, 
as required in the Act.
    Beginning in FY 2008, HRSA will utilize new standards for granting 
waivers of the core medical services requirement for the Ryan White 
HIV/AIDS Program. These standards meet the intent of the Ryan White 
HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006 to increase access to core 
medical services, including antiretroviral drugs, for persons with HIV/
AIDS and to ensure that grantees receiving waivers demonstrate the 
availability of such services for individuals with HIV/AIDS identified 
and eligible under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. The core medical services 
waiver uniform standard and waiver request process will apply to Ryan 
White HIV/AIDS Program grant awards under Parts A, B, and C of Title 
XXVI of the PHS Act. Core medical services waivers will be effective 
for a one-year period consistent with the grant award period.
    Grantees must submit a waiver request with the annual grant 
application containing the certifications and documentation which will 
be utilized by HRSA in making determinations regarding waiver requests.

[[Page 60380]]

    Grantees must provide evidence that all of the core medical 
services listed in the statute, regardless of whether such services are 
funded by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, are available to all 
individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible under Title XXVI of 
the PHS Act in the service area within 30 days.
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:
