Since the publication of the 60-day Federal Register notice, there have been some revision made to the Supporting Statement A and B of this PRA package. These revisions have been made in order to: (1) Correct several very minor errors; (2) make the content of the document more descriptive; and (3) to add additional information about the program that has become available since publication of the 60-day notice. The operational details of the program have progressed and been finalized. Therefore, these changes will reflect information pertaining to operational details of the program that was not available at the time that the PRA package documents were published. There have been no changes to the Information Collection Request that is the subject of this PRA package. There has been no change in the estimated burden that will be required of providers.

L. 104–13), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) publishes periodic summaries of proposed projects being developed for submission to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. To request more information on the proposed project or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and draft instruments, email paperwork@hrsa.gov or call the HRSA Reports Clearance Officer at (301) 443– 1129. Comments are invited on: (a) The proposed collection of information for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency; (b) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Proposed Project: Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network and Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients Data System (OMB No. 0915–0157)—[Revision] Section 372 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act requires that the Secretary, by contract, provide for the establishment and operation of an Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN). The OPTN, among other responsibilities, operates and maintains a national waiting list of PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 individuals requiring organ transplants, maintains a computerized system for matching donor organs with transplant candidates on the waiting list, and operates a 24-hour system to facilitate matching organs with individuals included in the list. Data for the OPTN data system are collected from transplant hospitals, organ procurement organizations, and tissue-typing laboratories. The information is used to indicate the disease severity of transplant candidates, to monitor compliance of member organizations with OPTN rules and requirements, and to report periodically on the clinical and scientific status of organ donation and transplantation in this country. Data are used to develop transplant, donation and allocation policies, to determine if institutional members are complying with policy, to determine member specific performance, to ensure patient safety and to fulfill the requirements of the OPTN Final Rule. The practical utility of the data collection is further enhanced by requirements that the OPTN data must be made available, consistent with applicable laws, for use by OPTN members, the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, the Department of Health and Human Services, and others for evaluation, research, patient information, and other important purposes. The OPTN is recommending addition of a new Liver Explant Pathology form to the OPTN data system. This new form was developed by the OPTN Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee and will be used to collect pathology data on liver transplant recipients who received waitlist exception points as a result of a diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma. Existing OPTN policy requires submission of post-transplant pathology reports by fax transmission, and the proposed form will provide standardized collection of this alreadyrequired information. There are also minor revisions to the existing data collection forms; the added fields were inadvertently left off of the forms at the time of the initial submission. Several of these fields are ‘‘read only’’ and are included on the forms for information purposes only. One field is proposed to be removed as it represented duplicative information.

    Section 372 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act requires that 
the Secretary, by contract, provide for the establishment and operation

computerized system for matching donor organs with transplant 
candidates on the waiting list, and operates a 24-hour system to 
facilitate matching organs with individuals included in the list.
    Data for the OPTN data system are collected from transplant

laboratories. The information is used to indicate the disease severity 
of transplant candidates, to monitor compliance of member organizations 
with OPTN rules and requirements, and to report periodically on the
