SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. 5. Assess information collection costs. Proposed Project Emerging Infections Program (OMB Control Number 0920–0978, Expiration Date 2/28/2019)—Revision—National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Emerging Infections Programs (EIPs) are population-based centers of excellence established through a network of state health departments collaborating with academic institutions; local health departments; public health and clinical laboratories; infection control professionals; and healthcare providers. EIPs assist in local, state, and national efforts to prevent, control, and monitor the public health impact of infectious diseases. Activities of the EIPs fall into the following general categories: (1) Active surveillance; (2) applied public health epidemiologic and laboratory activities; (3) implementation and evaluation of pilot prevention/intervention projects; and (4) flexible response to public health emergencies. Activities of the EIPs are designed to: (1) Address issues that the EIP network is particularly suited to investigate; (2) maintain sufficient flexibility for emergency response and new problems as they arise; (3) develop and evaluate public health interventions to inform public health policy and treatment guidelines; (4) incorporate training as a key function; and (5) prioritize projects that lead directly to the prevention of disease. A revision is being submitted to make existing forms clearer and to add several new forms: ABCs Severe GAS Infection Supplemental Form, HAIC Multi-site Gram-Negative Bacilli Case Report Form for Carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CR–PA), HAIC Multi-site Gram-Negative Surveillance Initiative— Extended-Spectrum Beta-LactamaseProducing Enterobacteriaceae (MuGSI– ESBL), HAIC Invasive Methicillinsensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA), and HAIC Candidemia Case Report Form. These forms will allow the EIP to better detect, identify, and monitor emerging pathogens. The estimates of the infection incidence generated by this collection provide the foundation for a variety of epidemiologic studies to explore risk factors, spectrum of disease, and prevention strategies. The total estimated burden is 40,347 hours. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Form name State Health Department ...............

Proposed Project

    Emerging Infections Program (OMB Control Number 0920-0978, 
Expiration Date 2/28/2019)--Revision--National Center for Emerging and 
Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Emerging Infections Programs (EIPs) are population-based 
centers of excellence established through a network of state health 
departments collaborating with academic institutions; local health 
departments; public health and clinical laboratories; infection control 
professionals; and healthcare providers. EIPs assist in local, state, 
and national efforts to prevent, control, and monitor the public health 
impact of infectious diseases.
    Activities of the EIPs fall into the following general categories: 
(1) Active surveillance; (2) applied public health epidemiologic and 
laboratory activities; (3) implementation and evaluation of pilot 
prevention/intervention projects; and (4) flexible response to public 
health emergencies. Activities of the EIPs are designed to: (1) Address 
issues that the EIP network is particularly suited to investigate; (2) 
maintain sufficient flexibility for emergency response and new problems 
as they arise; (3) develop and evaluate public health interventions to 
inform public health policy and treatment guidelines; (4) incorporate 
training as a key function; and (5) prioritize projects that lead 
directly to the prevention of disease.
    A revision is being submitted to make existing forms clearer and to 
add several new forms: ABCs Severe GAS Infection Supplemental Form, 
HAIC Multi-site Gram-Negative Bacilli Case Report Form for Carbapenem-
resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CR-PA), HAIC Multi-site Gram-Negative 
Surveillance Initiative--Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase-Producing 
Enterobacteriaceae (MuGSI-ESBL), HAIC Invasive Methicillin-sensitive 
Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA), and HAIC Candidemia Case Report Form. 
These forms will allow the EIP to better detect, identify, and monitor 
emerging pathogens. The estimates of the infection incidence generated 
by this collection provide the foundation for a variety of 
epidemiologic studies to explore risk factors, spectrum of disease, and 
prevention strategies.
    The total estimated burden is 40,347 hours. There is no cost to 
respondents other than their time.
