This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Under the provisions of section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of 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. This proposed information Start Printed Page 19194collection was previously published in the Federal Register on October 18, 2001, pages 52925-52926 and allowed 60 days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
Title: The National Cancer Institute Cancer Information Service Comprehensive Evaluation Plan. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The NCI Office of Communications has dedicated resources to the Cancer Information Service Branch to conduct an independent, scientifically designed and implemented evaluation of the Cancer Information Service (CIS), an NCI program that serves as a national resource for information and education about cancer. The study will assess the extent to which the program has been implemented and the impact and outcomes of the program in affecting the public and CIS partners. Partners are national, state, and regional organizations that collaborate with CIS.
For this study, three separate data collection efforts will be conducted: (1) The National User Survey, a survey of a sample of CIS Information Service users; (2) the National Partner Survey, a survey of a sample of CIS Networking, Education Program, Program Development, and Research partners; and (3) the Case Study Audience Survey, a survey of audiences served by selected partners. The National User Survey and the National Partner Survey will be conducted using telephone interviews. The Case Study Audience Survey will be conducted using a survey mode that is most appropriate for the targeted audiences (i.e., telephone, self-administered, or in person). The findings will form the basis of annual reports on evaluation findings. These reports will provide assistance in improving the programs, products, and services of CIS. Frequency of Response: One time only with the exception of the Case Study Audience Survey, which includes a pre- and postsurvey. Affected Public: Organizations and not-for-profit institutions; state, local, or tribal government; individuals and households. Type of Respondents: Adults using CIS services and CIS partners. The annual reporting burden is as follows:
|Type of respondent||Estimated annual number of respondents||Estimated number of responses of per respondent||Total annual responses||Average burden hours per response||Estimated annualized burden|
|National User Survey|
|National Partner Survey|
|Case Study Audience Survey|
|Case study audience||133||2||266||0.25||67|
The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at $7,554.00. There are no capital costs to report. There are no operating or maintenance costs to report.
