Proposed Project CDC Model Performance Evaluation Program (MPEP) for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Nontuberculous Mycobacteria Drug Susceptibility Testing OMB #0920–0600 (exp. 5/31/ 2013),—Revision—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background and Brief Description As part of the continuing effort to support domestic public health objectives for treatment of tuberculosis (TB), prevention of multi-drug resistance, and surveillance programs, CDC is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget to continue data collection from participants in the Model Performance Evaluation Program for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Non-tuberculous Mycobacterium Drug Susceptibility Testing. This revision request includes (a) Changing the title of the data collection to ‘‘CDC Model Performance Evaluation (MPEP) for Mycobacterium tuberculosis Drug Susceptibility Testing’’ to reflect that nontuberculous mycobacteria are no longer included in the test package; (b) replacement of Laboratory Enrollment Form with a Participant Biosafety Compliance Letter of Agreement; (c) revision of the Preshipment Email; (d) addition of Instructions to Participants Letter; (e) revision of the MPEP M. tuberculosis Results Worksheet; (f) entering survey results online using a modified data collection instrument; (g) modification of Reminder Email; (h) modification of Reminder Telephone Script; and (i) modification of the Aggregate Report Letter. While the overall number of cases of TB in the U.S. has decreased, rates still remain high among foreign-born persons, prisoners, homeless populations, and individuals infected with HIV in major metropolitan areas. To reach the goal of eliminating TB, the Model Performance Evaluation Program for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Non-tuberculous Mycobacterium Drug Susceptibility Testing is used to monitor and evaluate performance and practices among national laboratories performing M. tuberculosis susceptibility testing. Participation in this program is one way laboratories can ensure high-quality laboratory testing, resulting in accurate and reliable testing results. By providing an evaluation program to assess the ability of the laboratories to test for drug resistant M. tuberculosis strains, laboratories also have a selfassessment tool to aid in optimizing their skills in susceptibility testing. The information obtained from the laboratories on susceptibility practices and procedures is used to establish variables related to good performance, assessing training needs, and aid with the development of practice standards. Participants in this program include domestic clinical and public health laboratories. Data collection from laboratory participants occurs twice per E:\FR\FM\18JAN1.SGM 18JAN1
