DOE proposes to continue to collect information such as names of program participants and names of organizations and addresses; estimates of how many homes they can get to participate in the programs, and information about building stock (no building owner information is collected) and load management strategies. The collected information helps DOE understand the participating partners’ activities and progress toward achieving scheduled milestones enabling DOE to make decisions about the best way to respond to partners’ needs to improve their operations and actions to lower energy consumption and improve affordability; (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 2037; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 92,824. (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 15,828. (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: zero dollars. DOE estimates that there are no additional costs to participants other than the costs associated with the burden hours.

AGENCY: This notice announces the intention of the Agency for Healthcare SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:10 Aug 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 Research and Quality (AHRQ) to request that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve the proposed information collection project ‘‘Systematic Review Data Repository.’’ This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on June 14, 2019 and allowed 60 days for public comment. There were no substantive comments received by AHRQ. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by 30 days after date of publication. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be submitted to: AHRQ’s OMB Desk Officer by fax at (202) 395–6974 (attention: AHRQ’s desk officer) or by email at OIRA_submission@ omb.eop.gov (attention: AHRQ’s desk officer). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doris Lefkowitz, AHRQ Reports Clearance Officer, (301) 427–1477, or by email at doris.lefkowitz@AHRQ.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project Systematic Review Data Repository (SRDR) In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, AHRQ invites the public to comment on this proposed information collection. In 1997, AHRQ launched an initiative to promote evidence-based practice in everyday care through establishment of the Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) Program. Since then, the EPCs have been reviewing all relevant scientific literature on a wide spectrum of clinical and health services topics to produce various types of evidence reports. A majority of these evidence reports are systematic reviews (SRs), which are used as evidence bases for clinical practice guidelines, research agendas, healthcare coverage, and other health related policies. Performing SRs is costly in time, labor, and money. Moreover, there is an increasing expectation of quicker turnaround in producing SRs to accommodate the fast moving pace of innovations and new scientific discoveries in healthcare. Some SRs overlap or are replicated; independent teams of SR producers often extract data from the same studies, resulting in replication of work. Current methodology makes it difficult to harness and reuse previous work when updating SRs. In an effort to reduce the economic burden of conducting SRs, the EPC Program undertook development of a PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41989 collaborative, Web-based repository of systematic review data called the Systematic Review Data Repository (SRDR). This resource serves as both an archive and data extraction tool, shared among organizations and individuals producing SRs worldwide, enabling the creation of a central database of SR data. This database is collaboratively vetted, freely accessible, and integrates seamlessly with reviewers’ existing workflows, with the ultimate goal of facilitating the efficient generation and update of evidence reviews, and thus speeding and improving policy-making with regard to health care. Currently, there are two versions of the database: (1) The original version called ‘‘SRDR’’; and (2) an upgraded version with increased functionality. Further upgrade of the database is planned for the next year (to be called ‘‘SRDR 2.0’’). The SRDR project encompass there various iterations of the database. The SRDR project aims to achieve the following goals: (1) Create online easy-to-use Webbased tools for conducting systematic reviews to facilitate extraction of data from primary studies; (2) Develop an open-access searchable archive of key questions addressed in systematic reviews; (3) Maintain a public repository of primary study data including provision of technical support for repository users; and (4) Develop a process for making summary data from systematic reviews digitally shareable to end-users. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Brown University, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on health care and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of healthcare services, including database development. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (8). Method of Collection To achieve the goals of this project the following data collections will be implemented: (1) Collect registration data and information on SRs from SR producers who will populate the SRDR system. SRDR uses a three-tiered categorization of users and collection of registration data that depends on the type of user: (1) ‘‘Contributors’’ are SR producers who use SRDR as a tool to support production of the SR and share scientific data from their SRs. Registration data will be collected from these users; (2) ‘‘Commentators’’ E:\FR\FM\16AUN1.SGM 16AUN1
