Proposed Collection: National Cancer Institute (NCI) Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer Platform Partnership Scientific Progress Reports, 0925-NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: National Institutes of Health grantees are required to submit interim and final progress reports and other post-award documents associated with the monitoring, oversight, and closeout of an award. This submission represents a request for OMB to approve new program specific progress report guidelines for Cancer Nanotechnology Platform Partnerships (CNPP) awarded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The CNPPs are part of the Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer, a network of awards funded by NCI to promote the application of nanotechnology to cancer research and care. The proposed guidelines request information about award performance related to trans-Alliance collaboration, scientific milestones, progress towards clinical translation and technology commercialization, and education and outreach efforts. The report also gathers information on leveraged funding, patents and publications. The information is gathered every six months. This information is needed to monitor the performance of this special program within NCI, funded through Requests for Applications (RFA CA-09-013, released May 29, 2009) using the cooperative agreement mechanism (U01). The information will be used to monitor individual award performance and the effectiveness of the program as a whole. The respondents are the Principal Investigators of the awards, along with their institutional business officials. The awards are administered by and the reports reviewed by the Office of Cancer Nanotechnology Research (OCNR), part of the Center for Strategic Scientific Initiatives within NCI.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The estimated annualized burden hours are 72.
