Proposed Project National Syringe Services Program Evaluation—New—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The primary purpose of the National Syringe Services Program (SSP) Evaluation is to strengthen and improve the capacity of SSPs to conduct regular monitoring and evaluation to ensure that comprehensive prevention services are provided to meet the needs of people who inject drugs (PWID). The project will include SSPs that are listed in a publicly available directory of all known SSPs in the United States maintained by the North American Syringe Exchange Network (NASEN; https://nasen.org). SSPs will be sent a letter of invitation to participate in a 35minute program survey, called the Dave Purchase Memorial Survey. Participating programs will have the option of completing the survey via different modalities to enhance feasibility and comfort in completing the survey, for example via the Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) or a similarly secure web-based application. Other modalities for survey administration will include a coordinated telephone or videoconferencing interview. The survey will include questions on operational characteristics and services, client characteristics and drug use patterns, client satisfaction, funding resources, community relations, and key operational successes and challenges. Approximately 600 SSPs will be able to participate in the survey. We anticipate that approximately 20% of SSPs will decline to complete the survey, yielding approximately 480 completed surveys per year. However, given that this is the first survey of SSPs funded by CDC during the COVID–19 pandemic, it makes it challenging to predict response rates. We estimate that it will take 35 minutes to complete the survey, regardless of how the respondent chooses to complete it (i.e., selfadministered online or intervieweradministered by phone or videoconferencing). SSPs that do not respond to the initial survey invitation will be given reminders to complete the survey over the duration of the survey implementation period. The final reminder will include a link to a single question for SSPs that choose not to complete the survey about why they declined to complete the survey. Given the uncertainties in response rates described above, we are requesting enough burden hours to allow at least 80% of SSPs to respond to this question. We estimate that it will take two minutes to respond to this question. The total estimated annual burden hours are 296. There are no other costs to respondents other than their time.

necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (b) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (c) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to

    The primary purpose of the National Syringe Services Program (SSP)

regular monitoring and evaluation to ensure that comprehensive 
prevention services are provided to meet the needs of people who inject 
drugs (PWID). The project will include SSPs that are listed in a
