In order to fulfill these requirements, a standard Investigational Drug Accountability Report Form (NIH 2564) was designed to account for drug inventories and usage by protocols. The data obtained from the drug accountability record will be used to keep track of the dispensing of investigational anticancer agents to patients. It is used by NCI management to ensure that investigational drug supplies are not diverted for inappropriate protocol or patient use. The information is also compared to patient flow sheets (protocol reporting forms) during site visits conducted for each investigator once every three years. All comparisons are done with the intention of ensuring protocol, patient and drug compliance for patient and drug compliance for patient safety and protections. Frequency of Response: Daily. Affected Public: State or local governments, businesses or other forprofit. Federal agencies or employees, non-profit institutions, and small business or organizations. Type of Respondents: Investigators, pharmacist, nurses, pharmacy technicians, data manager. The annual reporting burden is divided into two major areas. These are the audits of Drug Accountability Forms by Government and its contractors and the use of the forms by clinical research sites. The burden is as follows: Federal Burden: 1700 audits are conducted of clinical research sites, a minimum of three Drug Accountability Forms are reviewed at the audit. Each form requires 1⁄2 hour to review. Number of Respondents: 1700. Number of Responses per Respondent: 3. Average Burden per Response: 0.5 hours. Annual Burden Hours: 2,250 hours. Clinical Trial Site Burden: The annual respondents’ burden for record keeping is estimated to require 6,240 hours. The record keeping burden represents an average time required for multiple entries (6 minutes or 0.1 hour per entry) on the drug accountability form, the average number of forms maintained by each record keeper and the number of record keepers. Drug Accountability Forms Number of Record Keepers: 3990. Number of Responses per Respondent: 16. Average Burden per Response: 0.1 (6 minutes). VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:40 Oct 31, 2007 Jkt 214001 Annual Burden Hours: 6,240 hours. There are no Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and Maintenance Cost to report.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a proposed revised information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning an information collection system for disaster program accounts and debts receivable.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When errors in payments occur or reviews and audits determine that overpayments were made in various disaster entitlements, FEMA’s Disaster Finance Branch (DFB), Office of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) records pertinent receivable data, including individuals’ personal data, within an automated, commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) accounts receivable system— ACCPAC. Using various screens, a receivable is established to bill, monitor payments and produce reports. If, for lack of payment, an account receivable becomes a debt, ACCPAC continues as the receivable billing and collection system, but additional personal financial information is gathered and used to determine an ability to pay in setting requirements of installment payment agreements. DHS debt collection regulations, 6 CFR part 11, require FEMA to maintain current credit data on FEMA’s debtors. To determine debtors’ financial condition, this includes the individual debtors’ own financial statements, executed under penalty for false claim, concerning their assets and liabilities and their income and expenses.
