Background Information on NTP Panels NTP panels are technical, scientific advisory bodies established on an ‘‘as needed’’ basis to provide independent scientific peer review and to advise the NTP on agents of public health concern, new/revised toxicological test methods, or other issues. These panels help ensure transparent, unbiased, and scientifically rigorous input to the program for its use in making credible decisions about human hazard, setting research and testing priorities, and providing information to regulatory agencies about alternative methods for toxicity screening. The NTP welcomes nominations of scientific experts for upcoming panels. Scientists interested in serving on an NTP panel should provide a current curriculum vita to Ms. Andrews (see ADDRESSES). The authority for NTP panels is provided by 42 U.S.C. 217a; section 222 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended. The panel is governed by the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2), which sets forth standards for the formation and use of advisory committees. Dated: February 3, 2011.

OMB No.: New Collection. Billing Accounting Code (BAC): 418423 (CAN G999916). Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) which will be conducted December, 2011 through June, 2012. The objective of the NSECE is to document the nation’s current need for and availability of early care and education and including school-age care (ECE/SA), and to deepen our understanding of the extent to which families’ needs and preferences coordinate well with providers’ offerings and constraints. The proposed collection will consist of four survey components: (1) A survey of households with children under the age of 13 for participation in a questionnaire on the need for and use of early care and education (Household Interview), (2) a survey of households with individuals Annual number of respondents Instrument jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Household screener .........................................................................................

Consideration will be given to PO 00000 providing care for children under the age of 13 in a residential setting (Homebased Provider Interview), (3) a survey of providers of care to children under 13 in a non-residential setting (Centerbased Provider Interview), and (4) a survey conducted with individuals employed in center-based child care programs (Workforce Provider Interview). These data collection efforts will provide urgently needed information about the provision of ECE/SA across the country and spanning many sectors of care providers such as communitybased child care, Head Start, schoolbased Pre-K, family child care, family, friend and neighbor care, and afterschool programs. The study will also dramatically extend the available resources for understanding how families use, seek, and cope with the ECE/SA choices that are available to them. Perhaps most significantly, the NSECE will allow the policy and research communities to merge data from families and providers at the local level—where the two actually meet. Respondents: General population households, home-based and centerbased child care providers (including public schools) serving children under 13, and selected staff members from center-based child care providers (including public schools) serving children under 13. comments and suggestions submitted within 60 days of this publication.
