As part of these responsibilities, the ATSDR Administrator must prepare toxicological profiles for substances included on the priority lists of hazardous substances. These lists identify 275 hazardous substances that ATSDR and EPA determined pose the most significant potential threat to human health. The availability of the revised priority list of 275 hazardous substances was announced in the Federal Register on March 6, 2008 (73 FR 12178). For prior versions of the list of substances, see Federal Register notices dated April 17, 1987 (52 FR 12866); October 20, 1988 (53 FR 41280); October 26, 1989 (54 FR 43619); October 17, 1990 (55 FR 42067); October 17, 1991 (56 FR 52166); October 28, 1992 (57 FR 48801); February 28, 1994 (59 FR 9486); April 29, 1996 (61 FR 18744); November 17, 1997 (62 FR 61332); October 21, 1999 (64 FR 56792); October 25, 2001 (66 FR 54014); November 7, 2003 (68 FR 63098); and December 7, 2005 (70 FR 72840).

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). There are no costs to respondents other than their time. Estimated Annualized Burden Hours E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
