Proposed Project: National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Travel Request Worksheet (OMB No. 0915-0278): Extension
Clinicians participating in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program use the Travel Request Worksheet to receive travel funds from the Federal Government to perform pre-employment interviews at sites on the Approved Practice List. The travel approval process is initiated when a scholar notifies the NHSC's In-Service Support Branch of an impending interview at one or more NHSC approved practice sites.
The Travel Request Worksheet is also used to initiate the relocation process after an NHSC scholar has successfully been matched to an approved practice site. Upon receipt of the Travel Request Worksheet, the NHSC will review and approve or disapprove the request and promptly notify the NHSC contractor regarding authorization of the funding for the relocation.
The burden estimate for this project is as follows:
|Form||Number of respondents||Average number of responses per respondent||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Travel Request Worksheet||250||2||500||.06||30|
Send comments to Susan G. Queen, Ph.D., HRSA Reports Clearance Officer, Room 10-33 Parklawn Building, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20857. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice.Start Signature
