Each profile will include an examination, summary, and interpretation of available toxicological information and epidemiologic evaluations. This information and these data are to be used to identify the levels of significant human exposure for the substance and the associated health effects. The profiles must also include a determination of whether adequate information on the health effects of each substance is available or in the process of development. When adequate information is not available, ATSDR, in cooperation with the National Toxicology Program (NTP), is required to ensure the initiation of research to determine these health effects. Although key studies for each of the substances were considered during the profile development process, this Federal Register notice solicits any additional studies, particularly unpublished data and ongoing studies, which will be evaluated for possible addition to the profiles now or in the future. The following draft toxicological profiles will be made available to the public on or about October 17, 2008. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Dated: November 3, 2008.

The program provides breast and cervical cancer screening for eligible women who participate in the program as well as diagnostic procedures for women who have abnormal findings. During the past decade, the NBCCEDP has provided over 7.8 million breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic exams to over 3.2 million low-income women. Those who are diagnosed with cancer through the program are eligible for Medicaid coverage through the Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act passed by Congress in 2000. CDC is currently approved to collect one year of information about activitybased economic costs incurred by the NBCCEDP during the period 07/01/ 2005–06/30/2006 (OMB No. 0920–0776, exp. 04/30/2009). Respondents are the 68 programs participating in the NBCCEDP. Information is collected electronically through a web-based Cost Allocation Tool (CAT) and includes: Staff and consultant salaries, screening costs, contracts and material costs, provider payments, in-kind contributions, administrative costs, allocation of funds and staff time devoted to specific program activities. CDC plans to request OMB approval for the collection of two additional, consecutive years of economic information relating to the period 07/01/ 2007–06/30/2009. Burden to respondents is considered acceptable since they have already been trained to use the CAT. Minor changes to the data collection instrument will be implemented in the proposed second and third years to provide enhanced information about screening and diagnostic activities supported through the use of non-Federal funds. The activity-based cost data will be used to evaluate grantees to ensure the most appropriate use of limited program resources in delivering program services such as screening, case management and outreach. The detailed cost data will allow CDC to determine the costs of various program components, identify factors that impact average cost, perform cost-effectiveness analysis and budget impact analysis, improve the CAT, and allocate program resources more effectively and efficiently. The collection of economic cost information complements the measures of NBCCEDP effectiveness collected as Minimum Data Elements (0920–0571, exp. 01/31/ 2010).

Proposed Project

    Economic Analysis of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early 
Detection Program (OMB 0920-0776)--Revision--Division of 
Cancer Prevention and Control, National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    CDC administers the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early 
Detection Program (NBCCEDP), the largest organized cancer screening 
program in the United States. The NBCCEDP provides critical breast and 
cervical cancer screening services to underserved low-income women in 
the United States, the District of Columbia, 4 U.S. territories, and 13 
American Indian/Alaska Native organizations. The program provides 
breast and cervical cancer screening for eligible women who participate 
in the program as well as diagnostic procedures for women who have 
abnormal findings. During the past decade, the NBCCEDP has provided 
over 7.8 million breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic 
exams to over 3.2 million low-income women. Those who are diagnosed 
with cancer through the program are eligible for Medicaid coverage 
through the Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act 
passed by Congress in 2000.
    CDC is currently approved to collect one year of information about 
activity-based economic costs incurred by the NBCCEDP during the period 
07/01/2005-06/30/2006 (OMB No. 0920-0776, exp. 04/30/2009). Respondents 
are the 68 programs participating in the NBCCEDP. Information is 
collected electronically through a web-based Cost Allocation Tool (CAT) 
and includes: Staff and consultant salaries, screening costs, contracts 
and material costs, provider payments, in-kind contributions, 
administrative costs, allocation of funds and staff time devoted to 
specific program activities.
    CDC plans to request OMB approval for the collection of two 
additional, consecutive years of economic information relating to the 
period 07/01/2007-06/30/2009. Burden to respondents is considered 
acceptable since they have already been trained to use the CAT. Minor 
changes to the data collection instrument will be implemented in the 
proposed second and third years to provide enhanced information about 
screening and diagnostic activities supported through the use of non-
Federal funds.
    The activity-based cost data will be used to evaluate grantees to 
ensure the most appropriate use of limited program resources in 
delivering program services such as screening, case management and 
outreach. The detailed cost data will allow CDC to determine the costs 
of various program components, identify factors that impact average 
cost, perform cost-effectiveness analysis and budget impact analysis, 
improve the CAT, and allocate program resources more effectively and 
efficiently. The collection of economic cost information complements 
the measures of NBCCEDP effectiveness collected as Minimum Data 
Elements (0920-0571, exp. 01/31/2010).
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
