Proposed Project Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis (RVCT), (OMB No. 0920– 0026 exp. 5/31/2014)—Extension— National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description In the United States, an estimated 10 to 15 million people are infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and about 10% of these persons will develop tuberculosis (TB) disease at some point in their lives. The purpose of this project is to continue ongoing national tuberculosis surveillance using the standardized Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis (RVCT). Data collected using the RVCT help state and federal infectious disease officials to assess changes in the diagnosis and treatment of TB, monitor trends in TB epidemiology and outbreaks, and develop strategies to meet the national goal of TB elimination. CDC currently conducts and maintains the national TB surveillance system (NTSS) pursuant to the provisions of Section 301(a) of the Public Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241] and Section 306 of the Public Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241(a)]. Data are collected by 60 reporting areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, and 7 jurisdictions in the Pacific and Caribbean). The last major revision of the RVCT data collection 66935 instrument was approved in 2009, in consultation with CDC’s Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE), state and local health departments, and partner organizations including the National TB Controllers Association, the Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists, and the Advisory Committee for the Elimination of Tuberculosis. No revisions to the RVCT are proposed in this data collection extension request. CDC publishes an annual report using RVCT data to summarize national TB statistics and also periodically conducts special analyses for publication to further describe and interpret national TB data. These data assist in public health planning, evaluation, and resource allocation. Reporting areas also review and analyze their RVCT data to monitor local TB trends, evaluate program success, and focus resources to eliminate TB. No other Federal agency collects this type of national TB data. In addition to providing technical assistance on the use of RVCT, CDC provides technical support for reporting software. In this request, CDC is requesting approval for approximately 5,810 burden hours. There is no cost to respondents except for their time.

Proposed Project Annual Survey of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) Grantees—New— National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description To improve access to cancer screening, Congress passed the Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act of 1990 (Public Law 101–354) which directed CDC to create E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1 66936 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 216 / Thursday, November 7, 2013 / Notices the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP). Currently, the NBCCEDP funds 67 grantees including all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 5 U.S. territories, and 11 American Indian/Alaska Native tribes or tribal organizations. Grantees provide screening services for breast and cervical cancer to low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women who otherwise would not have access to screening. Since 1991, NBCCEDP-funded grantees have served more than 4.3 million women, provided more than 10.7 million breast and cervical cancer screening examinations, and diagnosed more than 56,662 breast cancers, 3,206 invasive cervical cancers, and 152,470 premalignant cervical lesions, of which 41% were high-grade. As a comprehensive, organized screening program, the NBCCEDP supports activities including program management, partnership development, public education and targeted outreach, screening and diagnostic services, patient navigation, quality assurance and quality improvement, professional development, data management and utilization, and program monitoring and evaluation. For clinical service delivery, grantees fund health care providers in their state/territory/tribe to deliver breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment referrals for women diagnosed with cancer. CDC issued a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to support a new 5-year cooperative agreement for the NBCCEDP effective July 2012. This new FOA begins to shift the NBCCEDP from a focus on direct service provision to implementation of expanded evidence-based activities intended to increase rates of breast and cervical cancer screening at the population level. Though NBCCEDP grantees continue to provide breast and cervical cancer screening for uninsured and underinsured women, CDC is encouraging the implementation of strategies to increase screening rates beyond that of program-eligible women. CDC plans to implement an annual survey of NBCCEDP program directors in order to assess program implementation, particularly related to these expanded population-based efforts. The Web-based survey includes questions on respondent background, program activities, clinical service delivery, monitoring and evaluation, partnerships, training and technical assistance needs, and program management. Questions are of various types including dichotomous and multiple response. The estimated burden per response is 45 minutes. This assessment will enable CDC to gauge its progress in meeting NBCCEDP program goals, identify implementation activities, monitor program transition to efforts aimed at impacting populationbased screening, identify technical assistance needs of state, tribe and territorial health department cancer control programs, and identify implementation models with potential to expand and transition to new settings to increase program impact and reach. The assessment will identify successful activities that should be maintained, replicated, or expanded as well as provide insight into areas that need improvement. OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.
