Proposed Project Management Information System for Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs—Revision (OMB No. 0920– 0841, exp. 1/31/2013)—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Through the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP), CDC currently provides cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance to 65 entities: all 50 states, the District of Columbia, seven tribes/ tribal organizations, and seven territories/U.S. Pacific Island jurisdictions. Since January 2010, NCCCP awardees have submitted progress and activity information to CDC twice per year using an electronic information system (‘‘Management Information System for Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs,’’ OMB No. 0920–0841, exp. 1/31/2013). The program director for each awardee is responsible for overseeing activities and submitting the required reports to CDC. New cooperative agreements were awarded to all NCCCP programs in 2012 (‘‘Cancer Prevention and Control Program for State, Territorial and Tribal Organizations,’’ Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DP12–1205). The new cooperative agreements place increased emphasis on policy and environmental approaches to cancer prevention and control. CDC seeks OMB approval to continue using MIS-based reporting for the NCCCP awardees. Minor changes to the existing core cancer prevention and control data elements will be implemented to reflect the FOA’s new performance requirements. Thirteen of the 65 NCCCP awardees received additional funding for related but distinct cooperative agreements (‘‘Demonstrating the Capacity of Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs to Implement Policy and Environmental Cancer Control Interventions,’’ FOA DP10–1017). The demonstration program is aimed at accelerating the development of policy and environmental approaches to cancer control for awardees that are poised to move forward rapidly. Demonstration program activities will be aligned with the existing comprehensive cancer control program in a manner that minimizes duplication, capitalizes on PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 existing activities, and fosters rapid implementation. Similar semi-annual progress reports are required to monitor activities conducted under the demonstration program. A state- or territory-based policy task force coordinator will be responsible for submitting the required reports to CDC. CDC proposes to use the same MISbased methodology for all reporting. Due to the distinct objectives, resources, and activities associated with each cooperative agreement, separate reports will be required from the program director and the task force coordinator. CDC’s Revision request utilizes a modified method of estimating respondent burden which distinguishes between (i) the initial burden of populating the MIS, and (ii) routine MIS maintenance and report generation. In the initial OMB approval period (2010– 2013), respondent burden was based on a long-term average burden per response. For the 65 state- and territory-based cancer prevention and control programs, CDC estimates the initial burden of populating the MIS at four hours per response. Some of the information entered into the MIS during the previous cooperative agreement period will be downloaded to minimize respondent burden in the new funding period, but awardees will be responsible for verifying this information and entering new objectives. After completing these steps, the estimated burden for ongoing system maintenance and semi-annual reporting is three hours per response. For the 13 states and territories that are also participating in the demonstration program, the initial burden of populating the MIS is estimated to be six hours per response. Awardees will be responsible for entering information about the new objectives, staff, and other resources for demonstration program activities. Thereafter, the estimated burden for ongoing system maintenance and semiannual reporting is estimated at three hours per response. OMB approval is requested for three years. Information will be reported electronically twice per year. CDC will use the reports to identify training and technical assistance needs, monitor compliance with cooperative agreement requirements, evaluate progress made in achieving program-specific goals, and obtain information needed to respond to inquiries. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 586.

Programs--Revision (OMB No. 0920-0841, exp. 1/31/2013)--National Center 
for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Through the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP), 
CDC currently provides cooperative agreement funding and technical 
assistance to 65 entities: all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 
seven tribes/tribal organizations, and seven territories/U.S. Pacific

progress and activity information to CDC twice per year using an

Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs,'' OMB No. 0920-0841, exp. 1/31/
2013). The program director for each awardee is responsible for 
overseeing activities and submitting the required reports to CDC.
    New cooperative agreements were awarded to all NCCCP programs in 
2012 (``Cancer Prevention and Control Program for State, Territorial 
and Tribal Organizations,'' Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) 
DP12-1205). The new cooperative agreements place increased emphasis on

    CDC seeks OMB approval to continue using MIS-based reporting for 
the NCCCP awardees. Minor changes to the existing core cancer 
prevention and control data elements will be implemented to reflect the 
FOA's new performance requirements.
    Thirteen of the 65 NCCCP awardees received additional funding for 
related but distinct cooperative agreements (``Demonstrating the 
Capacity of Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs to Implement Policy 
and Environmental Cancer Control Interventions,'' FOA DP10-1017). The 
demonstration program is aimed at accelerating the development of 
policy and environmental approaches to cancer control for awardees that 
are poised to move forward rapidly. Demonstration program activities 
will be aligned with the existing comprehensive cancer control program 
in a manner that minimizes duplication, capitalizes on existing 
activities, and fosters rapid implementation. Similar semi-annual 
progress reports are required to monitor activities conducted under the 
demonstration program. A state- or territory-based policy task force 
coordinator will be responsible for submitting the required reports to 
CDC.
    CDC proposes to use the same MIS-based methodology for all
