NSF may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number and the agency informs potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information that such persons are not required to respond to the collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title of Collection: ‘‘National Science Foundation Proposal and Award Information—NSF Proposal and Award Policies & Procedures Guide.’’ OMB Approval Number: 3145–0058. Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to extend with revision an information collection for three years. Proposed Project: The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent Federal agency created by the National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as amended (42 U.S.C. 1861–75). The Act states the purpose of the NSF is ‘‘to promote the progress of science; [and] to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare by supporting research and education in all fields of science and engineering.’’ The Act authorized and directed NSF to initiate and support: • Basic scientific research and research fundamental to the engineering process; • Programs to strengthen scientific and engineering research potential; • Science and engineering education programs at all levels and in all the various fields of science and engineering; • Programs that provide a source of information for policy formulation; and • Other activities to promote these ends. The Foundation fulfills this responsibility by initiating and supporting merit-selected research and education projects in all the scientific and engineering disciplines. It does this through grants and cooperative agreements to more than 2,800 colleges, universities, K–12 school systems, businesses, informal science organizations and other research institutions throughout the U.S. The awards are based mainly on evaluations of proposal merit submitted to the Foundation. The Foundation accounts PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 for about one-fourth of Federal support to academic institutions for basic research. Use of the Information: The regular submission of proposals to the Foundation is part of the collection of information and is used to help NSF fulfill this responsibility by initiating and supporting merit-selected research and education projects in all the scientific and engineering disciplines. NSF receives more than 40,000 proposals annually for new projects, and makes approximately 10,500 new awards. Burden on the Public: It has been estimated that the public expends an average of approximately 120 burden hours for each proposal submitted. NSF received approximately 64,000 proposals in FY 2009, for an estimated 7,680,000 burden hours. The Foundation has based its reporting burden on the review of approximately 64,000 new proposals received during FY 2009. It has been estimated that anywhere from one hour to 20 hours may be required to review a proposal. We have estimated that approximately 5 hours are required to review an average proposal. Each proposal receives an average of 3 reviews, resulting in approximately 960,000 burden hours each year. The information collected on reviewer background questionnaire (NSF 428A) is used by managers to maintain an automated database of reviewers for the many disciplines represented by the proposals submitted to the Foundation. Information collected on gender, race, and ethnicity is used in meeting NSF needs for data to permit response to Congressional and other queries into equity issues. These data also are used in the design, implementation, and monitoring of NSF efforts to increase the participation of various groups in science, engineering, and education. The estimated burden for the Reviewer Background Information (NSF 428A) is estimated at 5 minutes per respondent with up to 10,000 potential new reviewers for a total of 83 hours. The aggregate number of burden hours is estimated to be 8,640,083. The actual burden on respondents has not changed. Dated: May 5, 2010. Suzanne H.
