It is expected that the confer process may result in the need to update the policy from time to time. 5–26.7 Deliberative Process Privilege Nothing in this Policy waives the Government’s deliberative process privilege. Examples of the government’s deliberative process privilege are as follows: (1) When the Secretary, HHS, is specifically requested by a member or members of Congress to respond to or report on proposed legislation, the development of such responses and of related policy is a part of the Executive Branch’s deliberative process privilege and should remain confidential. (2) In specified instances, when Congress requires the HHS to work with UIOs on the development of recommendations that may require legislation, such as reports, recommendations, or other products that are developed independent of a Department position, the development of which is governed by Office of Management and Budget Circular A–19.

It is beneficial for NCI, through the OAR, to pretest strategies, concepts, activities and materials while they are under development. Additionally, administrative forms are a necessary part of collecting demographic information and areas of interest for advocates. Pre-testing, or formative evaluation, helps ensure that the products and services developed by NCI have the greatest capacity of being received, understood, and accepted by their target audiences. Since OAR is responsible for matching advocates to NCI programs and initiatives across the cancer continuum, it is necessary to measure the satisfaction of both internal and external stakeholders with this collaboration. This customer satisfaction research helps ensure the relevance, utility, and appropriateness of the many initiatives and products that OAR and NCI produce. The OAR will use a variety of qualitative (focus groups, interviews) and quantitative (paper, phone, in-person, and web surveys) methodologies to conduct this research, allowing NCI to: 1) Understand characteristics (attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors) of the intended target audience and use this information in the development of effective strategies, concepts, activities; 2) use a feedback loop to help refine, revise, and enhance OAR’s efforts—ensuring that they have the greatest relevance, utility, appropriateness, and impact for/to target audiences; and 3) expend limited program resource dollars wisely and effectively. The anticipated individual respondents will consist of: Adult cancer research advocates, members of the public, health care professionals, and organizational representatives.
