In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

Survey of Alumni Commissioner's Fellowship Program Fellows—OMB Control Number 0910-NEW

FDA is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget to gather information from Alumni Commissioner's Fellowship Program (CFP) Fellows. The information from Alumni CFP Fellows will allow FDA's Office of the Commissioner (OC) to easily and efficiently elicit and review program feedback. The online survey will assist the Agency in promoting and protecting the public health by encouraging outside persons to share their experience with the FDA while a Commissioner's Fellow. The process will reduce the time and cost of submitting written documentation to the Agency and lessen the likelihood of surveys being misrouted within the Agency mail system. The information gathered by the survey will be used to gain insights into, and to document, impacts that the CFP has had and is having on former CFP fellows and contributions and impacts that the former fellows are making in their current work. The surveys include questions to assess the following measures: Post-fellowship employment (e.g., employment type); number of awards; number of contributions while a CFP fellow (e.g., number of publications, guidances authored or co-authored); and contributions in their field (e.g., list of publications).

In the Federal Register of February 24, 2016 (81 FR 9202), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.

FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:
