The survey was found to be useful by CDC and the grantees (which received feedback reports). For example, after the each survey administration, CDC was able to tailor sessions at the Program Director’s meeting to the needs of grantees that had been expressed during last year’s information collection. DCPC has decided to continue the data collection, and is being supported through the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors. CDC’s proposed survey builds on previous information collections conducted from 2011–2013 through the CPCRN. Questions are of various types including dichotomous and multiple response. All information is to be collected electronically through the web-based survey. The estimated burden per response is 75 minutes. This assessment will enable CDC to gauge its progress in meeting CRCCP 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 for CRCCP awardees and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 36.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: Voluntary Partner Surveys to Implement Executive Order 12862 in the Health Resources and Services Administration. OMB No. 0915–0212—Extension. Abstract: In response to Executive Order 12862, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) proposes to conduct voluntary customer surveys of its partners to assess strengths and weaknesses in program services and processes. HRSA partners are typically state or local governments, health care facilities, health care consortia, health care providers, and researchers. HRSA is requesting a generic approval from OMB to conduct the partner surveys. Partner surveys to be conducted by HRSA might include, for example, online or telephone surveys of grantees to determine satisfaction with grant processes or technical assistance provided by a contractor, or in-class evaluation forms completed by providers who receive training from ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 HRSA grantees, to measure satisfaction with the training experience. Results of these surveys will be used to plan and redirect resources and efforts as needed to improve services and processes. Focus groups may also be used to gain partner input into the design of mail and telephone surveys. Focus groups, in-class evaluation forms, mail surveys, and telephone surveys are expected to be the preferred data collection methods. A generic approval allows HRSA to conduct a limited number of partner surveys without a full-scale OMB review of each survey. If generic approval is approved, information on each individual partner survey will not be published in the Federal Register. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.
