Start Preamble

In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, call the CDC Reports Clearance Officer on (404)498-1210.

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Send comments to Seleda Perryman, CDC Assistant Reports Clearance Officer, 1600 Clifton Road, MS-D24, Atlanta, GA 30333. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice.

Proposed Project: Evaluation of Customer Satisfaction of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) Web Site (OMB No. 0923-0028)—Reinstatement—ATSDR proposes to conduct customer satisfaction research for its Internet site. Information on the site focuses on prevention of exposure and adverse human health effects and diminished quality of life associated with exposure to hazardous substances from waste sites, unplanned releases, and other sources of pollution present in the environment. The site is designed to serve the general public, persons at risk for exposure to hazardous substances, and health professionals.

Approval for a similar Customer Satisfaction Survey was requested in 2002 jointly with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (OMB No. 0920-0449, Expiration Date 09/30/2003). The new survey is solely for ATSDR and is significantly shorter and would require less time to complete.

This research will ensure that targeted audiences find the information easy to access, clear, informative, and useful. Specifically, the research will examine whether the information is presented in an appropriate technological format and whether it meets the needs, wants, and preferences of visitors or “customers” to the Web site. Results from the previous survey were utilized to redesign the ATSDR Web site—making improvements to architecture, links, organization, and content. Results from the new survey will assist ATSDR in making more improvements to the Web Site in order to better serve its customers/visitors. There will be no costs to respondents.
