The purpose of this data collection is to provide a systematic and consistent mechanism to review requests that come to CDC for Select Agents. The term select agents is used to described a limited group of viruses, bacteria, rickettsia, and toxins that have the potential for use as agents of bioterrorism, inflicting significant morbidity and mortality on susceptible populations. In light of current terrorism concerns and the significant NIH grant monies directed toward Select Agent research, CDC receives hundreds of requests for Select Agents from researchers. Applicants are required to complete an application form in which 66177 they identify themselves and their institution, provide a Curriculum Vitae or biographical sketch, a summary of their research proposal, and sign indemnification and material transfer agreement statements. A user fee will be collected to recover costs for materials, handling and shipping (except for public health laboratories). The cost to the respondent will vary based on which agent is requested. CDC is updating the name of the National Center on the application form. The National Center for Preparedness, Detection, and Control of Infectious Diseases officially became a National Center in April, 2007. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 450.
