    In compliance with Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and 
approval of the information collection listed below.

Health (NIH).
    Need and Use of Information Collection: The Office of Disease 
Prevention (ODP) is the lead Office at the National Institutes of 
Health (NIH) responsible for assessing, facilitating, and stimulating 
research in disease prevention and health promotion, and disseminating 
the results of this research to improve public health. Prevention is 
preferable to treatment, and research on disease prevention is an 
important part of the NIH's mission. The knowledge gained from this 
research leads to stronger clinical practice, health policy, and 
community health programs. ODP collaborates with NIH, other Department 
of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies, and other public and 
private partners to achieve the Office's mission and goals. One of 
ODP's priorities is to promote the use of the best available methods in 
prevention research and support the development of better study designs 
and research methods. One of our strategies is to help NIH Institutes, 
Centers, and Offices identify experts in prevention science methods to 
include on their peer review panels. This strengthens the panels and 
improves the quality of the prevention-related research supported by 
NIH. To identify experts in prevention science methods, we have 
developed online software that allows us to collect scientists' names, 
contact information, and resumes, as well as to have those scientists 
identify their level of expertise in a variety of prevention science 
methods and content areas. The data are used to populate a web-based 
tool that NIH staff can use to identify scientists with prevention-
related research expertise in specific research methods and study 
designs for invitation to serve as a reviewer on an NIH study section. 
This system is also shared with review staff from other HHS agencies, 
to use in the same way. This OMB revision request is for the continued

Expertise Survey (PRES) tool in order to capture areas of expertise not 
previously collected in the current survey, including additional study

topics.

respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized 
burden hours are 417.
