This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on February 21, 2018, page 7483 (83 FR 7483) and allowed 60 days for public comment. No public comments were received. The National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health, may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

In compliance with Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and approval of the information collection listed below.

Proposed Collection: CTEP Branch and Support Contracts Forms and Surveys, 0925-0753 Expiration Date 06/30/2020, REVISION, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) and the Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP) fund an extensive national program of cancer research, sponsoring clinical trials in cancer prevention, symptom management and treatment for qualified clinical investigators. As part of this effort, CTEP implements programs to register clinical site investigators and clinical site staff, and to oversee the conduct of research at the clinical sites. CTEP and DCP also oversee two support programs, the NCI Central Institutional Review Board (CIRB) and the Cancer Trial Support Unit (CTSU). The combined systems and processes for Start Printed Page 18577initiating and managing clinical trials is termed the Clinical Oncology Research Enterprise (CORE) and represents an integrated set of information systems and processes which support investigator registration, trial oversight, patient enrollment, and clinical data collection. The information collected is required to ensure compliance with applicable federal regulations governing the conduct of human subjects research (45 CFR 46 and 21 CRF 50), and when CTEP acts as the Investigational New Drug (IND) holder, FDA regulations pertaining to the sponsor of clinical trials and the selection of qualified investigators under 21 CRF 312.53). Information is also collected through surveys to assess satisfaction, provide feedback to guide improvements with processes and technology, and assess health professional's interests in clinical trials.

To increase efficiencies, reduce administrative burden and cost, CTEP has requested consolidation of their current OMB submission. Consolidation is justified because although the various branches and contracts are responsible for distinct services, the processes that support the NCI and participating clinical sites efforts are intertwined. This revision of the previous submission includes changes to the NCI CIRB and CTSU form collections and integrates the Clinical Trials Monitoring Branch (CTMB) and Pharmaceutical Management Branch (PMB) form collections related to site audit and clinical investigator and key clinical site staff registration.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 112,798.
