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 National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval.

Proposed Collection: Title: Cancer Trial Support Unit (CTSU). Type of Information Collection Request: Existing Collection in Use Without an OMB Number. Need and Use of Information Collection: CTSU collects annual surveys of customer satisfaction for clinical site staff using the CTSU Help Desk and the CTSU web site. An ongoing user satisfaction survey is in place for the Oncology Patient Enrollment Network (OPEN). User satisfaction surveys are compiled as part of the project quality assurance activities and are used to direct improvements to processes and technology. In addition, the CTSU collects standardized forms to process site regulatory information, changes to membership, patient enrollment data, and routing information for case report forms. This questionnaire adheres to The Public Health Service Act, Section 413 (42 U.S.C. 285a-2) authorizes CTEP to establish and support programs to facilitate the participation of qualified investigators on CTEP-supported Start Printed Page 39951studies, and to institute programs that minimize redundancy among grant and contract holders, thereby reducing overall cost of maintaining a robust treatment trials program.

Frequency of Response: The help desk and web site survey are collected annually. The OPEN survey is ongoing. Submission of forms varies depending on the purpose of the form and the activity of the local site.

Affected Public: CTSU's target audience is staff members at clinical sites and CTEP-supported programs. Respondent and burden estimates are listed in the Table below. The annualized burden is estimated to be 27,861 hours and the annualized cost to respondents is estimated to be $757,828. There are no Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and/or Maintenance Costs to report.
