Information Collection Request Title: HHS Entrepreneurs-in-Residence Program (EIR).

Abstract: The HHS IDEA Lab, in the Immediate Office of the Secretary, is requesting an approval by Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on a new information collection, which is critical to the success of the HHS EIR program, and identifies private sector entrepreneurs with unique skill sets not available in government to join HHS for a year to work on critical initiatives. The information collection for the HHS EIR custom form management system involves obtaining candidate resumes and responses to short essay questions specifically designed to determine whether entrepreneurs have the knowledge, skills and abilities to successfully complete HHS EIR projects in the government context and mentor existing government staff to acquire new, entrepreneurial skills.

Likely Respondents: The candidate pools, targeted for the HHS EIR program are serial private sector entrepreneurs with no prior federal government experience.
