Proposed Collection

NIMH Data Repositories (NDR) Data Submission Request—Revision 0925-0667; the NIMH Data Repositories Data Access and Use Certification—National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) Data Repositories are a group of Federal data repositories based on an informatics platform for human-subjects research domains related to mental health, initially established as the National Database for Autism Research (NDAR) to support autism-related research. In 2013, NIMH received approval from OMB for use of the NIMH Data Access Request and Use Certification (DUC) Form to meet the unique data access needs of all existing NIMH data repositories, which at the time consisted of NDAR, Pediatric MRI (PedsMRI), and the NIMH Clinical Research Datasets (NCRD)—OMB# 0925-0667 (Expiration: 09/30/2016). Now in 2014, two new databases have been added and integrated into the NDAR infrastructure, NDCT and RDoCdb. At this time, NIMH is seeking OMB approval to add an all-purpose NIMH Data Repositories Data Submission Request Form and to revise the all-purpose NIMH Data Repositories Data Access and Use Certification Form. As the data repositories have matured, and with the introduction of the new databases—namely NDCT and RDoCdb—the information being collected for data submission has become more complex, rendering an OMB-approved submission form a new necessity.

OMB approval is requested for three years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 221.Start Printed Page 77015
