Proposed Collection: Progress Reports for Center for Global Health's Low and Mid-Income Countries (LMICs) Global Start Printed Page 1922Health Collaborations, 0925-NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The Center for Global Health's (CGH) Low and Mid-Income Countries (LMICs) Global Health Collaborations is proposing new program specific progress report guidelines. The CGH LMIC Global Health Collaborations are part of a pilot initiative and partnership, between the NCI CGH and the Office of Cancer Centers (OCC), to promote collaborations between the NCI designated Cancer Centers and foreign institutions from Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). This collaboration is designed to develop and implement mutually beneficial global cancer research programs by increasing the capability of these countries to participate and partner in cancer research. The proposed guidelines request information about award performance related to objectives, accomplishments, barriers and challenges, collaborators, and findings. The information is gathered six months into the award and 12 months after the award (upon expiry). This information is needed to monitor the performance of this special program within NCI, funded through three Request for Proposals (RFPs); the first was released April 18, 2013 and CGH expects to release another in 2014 and the final one in 2015. The respondents are the Principal Investigators of the awards. The information will be used to monitor individual award performance and the effectiveness of the program as a whole. Since these projects are funded through the contract mechanism, the PIs will not be required to submit interim and final progress reports like other National Institutes of Health grantees must.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 83.
