To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, call 404–639–7570 or send comments to Ron Otten, at 1600 Clifton Road, MS D74, Atlanta, GA 30333 or send an email to omb@cdc.gov. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (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. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice. Proposed Project Application form and related forms for the operation of the National Death Index (NDI), OMB No. 0920–0215 (expires November 30, 2013)— submitted only by those investigators who actually decide to apply for use of the NDI services. The Request for a Repeat NDI File Search is used by those NDI users who already have an approved application on file. This form is used by researchers when they have additional study subjects that need to be identified as deceased. The final form used in the User Data Transmittal Form. The researcher uses this from when transmitting their data file to the NDI staff. Using the NDI Plus service, researchers have the option of also receiving cause of death information for deceased subjects, thus reducing the need to request copies of death certificates from the states. The NDI Plus option currently provides the International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes for the underlying and multiple causes of death for the years 1979–2010. Health researchers must complete administrative forms in order to apply for NDI services, and submit records of study subjects for computer matching against the NDI file. A threeyear clearance is requested. There is no cost to respondents except for their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 182. Extension—National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C.), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on the extent and nature of illness and disability of the population of the United States. The National Death Index (NDI) is a national data base containing identifying death record information submitted annually to NCHS by all the state vital statistics offices, beginning with deaths in 1979. This request is for approval of forms used to request searches against the NDI file to obtain the states and dates of death and the death certificate numbers of deceased study subjects.

Proposed Project

    National Program of Cancer Registries Program Evaluation Instrument 
(NPCR-PEI) (OMB No. 0920-0706, exp. 12/31/2011)--Reinstatement--
National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion 
(NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR), administered by 
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was established 
to provide funding for states and territories to: (1) Improve existing 
state-based cancer registries; (2) plan and implement registries where 
none existed; (3) develop model legislation and regulations for states 
to enhance the viability of registry operations; (4) set standards for 
data completeness, timeliness, and quality; (5) provide training for 
registry personnel; and (6) help establish a computerized reporting and 
data-processing system. Through the NPCR, CDC currently provides 
cooperative agreement funding to 48 population-based central cancer 
registries (CCR) in 45 states, the District

of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Pacific Islands jurisdictions. The 
National Cancer Institute supports the operations of CCR in the five 
remaining states.
    Through the NPCR, CDC provides technical assistance and sets 
program standards to assure that complete cancer incidence data are 
available for national- and state-level cancer control and prevention 
activities and other health planning activities. NPCR-funded CCR are 
the primary source of cancer surveillance data for United States Cancer 
Statistics (USCS), which CDC has published annually since 2002.
    CDC has previously collected information from NPCR awardees to 
monitor their performance in meeting the required NPCR Program 
Standards (NPCR Program Evaluation Instrument, OMB No. 0920-0706, exp. 
12/31/2011). The NPCR Program Evaluation Instrument (PEI) is a secure, 
web-based method of collecting information about registry operations, 
including: staffing, legislation, administration, reporting 
completeness, data exchange, data content and format, data quality 
assurance, data use, collaborative relationships, and advanced 
activities.
    Since 2009, data collection had been conducted on a biennial 
schedule in odd-numbered years. The most recent PEI reports were 
submitted to CDC in 2011. In late 2011, CDC discontinued the NPCR PEI 
clearance in preparation for a review of NPCR program standards. At 
this time, CDC seeks OMB approval to reinstate the NPCR PEI clearance. 
Minor changes to the PEI will be implemented based on the revised NPCR 
standards. Additional changes incorporated into the Reinstatement 
request include a reduction in the estimated number of NPCR awardees

(from 1.5 hours to 2 hours).

registries will use the data to monitor progress toward meeting 
objectives and established program standards; to describe various 
attributes of the NPCR-funded registries; and to respond to inquiries 
about the program.
    There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total 
estimated annualized burden hours are 64.
