Summary of Information Collection

    Federal Government institutions wishing to conduct, sponsor, or 
support research on human subjects must first submit for approval to 
duly designated authorities an Assurance that they will comply with 
established guidelines in such research. Such Assurances are granted by 
components of DoD and by the Department of Health and Human Services 
(HHS). DoD guidance requires principal and associate investigators 
individually and explicitly to acknowledge that they understand and 
accept responsibility for protecting the rights and welfare of human 
research subjects. All principal and associate investigators engaged in 
research supported or conducted under the purview of the USD(P&R) must 
read and sign a document that attests to their commitment to abide by 
the provisions of: (a) The Belmont Report: Ethical Principles and 
Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research; (b) the 
U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) regulations for the protection of 
human subjects at Title 32, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 219 (32 
CFR 219) and DoD Directive 3216.02; (c) the Assurance of the engaged 
institution; relevant institutional policies and procedures where 
appropriate; and other Federal, State, or local regulations where 
appropriate. The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for 
Health Affairs announces the intent to establish and use a new document 
format for this purpose and seeks public comment on the provisions 
thereof. Respondents are professionals who have been designated as 
principal or associate investigators. When preparing to initiate work 
on their first human subject research protocol, each principal 
investigator and associate investigator must assure they have the 
proposed Researcher Responsibilities form on file with the OUSD(P&R) 
Component Designated Official Office. This may require new forms from 
approximately 90 investigators. The form is two pages in length 
including statements agreed to and half a page for respondent signature 
and contact information. Respondents generally will be required to have 
the signed form scanned and forwarded electronically. The form will be 
filed electronically and form completion will be logged into a

research with OUSD(P&R), he/she will be asked to reaffirm his/her 
commitment electronically. This information collection does not involve 
sensitive personal information and requires no special confidentiality 
measures.
