Proposed Collection Title: National Children's Study (NCS) Vanguard Data and Sample Archive and Access System, 0925-0730 exp., date 2/28/2019—EXTENSION Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: NICHD requires institutional and investigator contact information from users of the NCS Data and Sample Archive and Access System (NCS Archive). This information collected from potential data users is necessary to fulfill the requirements of their proposed research projects, ensure compliance with Department of Health and Human Services regulations for the protection of human subjects in research (45 CFR 46) and the Common Rule (45 CFR 46 Subpart A), and to document, track, and monitor the use of the NCS Archive, which provides opportunities for qualified researchers to use data and samples collected by the NCS Vanguard phase, for approved research projects. The information in addition will help NIH better understand the use of archived data and samples by the research community. There is no plan to publish the data collected under this request other than to post on the NCS Archive website the titles of approved research projects together with project investigators' institutional affiliations. The data otherwise are for internal monitoring purposes only, to assess the archive resource requirements and for quality improvement.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 109.
