In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
Application for Participation in the FDA Commissioner's Fellowship Program; (OMB Control Number 0910—New)
Sections 1104, 1302, 3301, 3304, 3320, 3361, 3393, and 3394 of Title 5 of the United States Code authorize Federal Agencies to rate applicants for Federal jobs. Collecting applications for the Commissioner's Fellowship Program will allow FDA's Office of the Commissioner to easily and efficiently elicit and review information from students and health care professionals who are interested in becoming involved in FDA-wide activities. The process will reduce the time and cost of submitting written documentation to the Agency and lessen the likelihood of applications being misrouted within the Agency mail system. It will assist the Agency in promoting and protecting the public health by encouraging outside persons to share their expertise with FDA.
In the Federal Register of August 4, 2014 (79 FR 45196), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. Although one comment was received, it was not responsive to the four collection of information topics solicited and, therefore, will not be discussed in this document.
FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:
Table 1—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden 1
|Activity/5 U.S.C. section||Number of respondents||Number of responses per
respondent||Total annual responses||Average burden per
|1104, 1302, 3301, 3304, 3320, 3361, 3393, and 3394||600||1||600||1.33||798|
|1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
FDA based these estimates on the number of inquiries that have been received concerning the program and the number of requests for application forms over the past 5 years.
