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: Center for Cancer Training (CCT) Application Form for electronic Individual Development Plan (eIDP), 0925-XXXX, Exp., Date XX/XXXX, NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Center for Cancer Training (CCT) supports NCI's goal of training cancer researchers with various educational levels (postbaccalaureate, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows) and for varying periods of time (3 months to 5 years). The eIDP is an online, detailed questionnaire focused on responses to career and professional goals and expectations while the trainee works at the NCI. The eIDP ensures the NCI trainees are receiving proper career and professional guidance, making appropriate progress, and determining activities to achieve their goals. The eIDP is also used to track trainees' career and professional goals and to ensure trainees receive the tools needed to achieve those goals. It is expected the trainees will complete the eIDP annually and that the eIDP process could be improved by their responses. The effectiveness of training could also be enhanced by the reports received by the trainees completing the eIDP. Individual Development Plans have been collected by paper and pencil from trainees since 2001. With the implementation of the electronic system, a pilot of the eIDP was approved by OMB (#0925-0046) and implemented in December 2018. The pilot improved the clarity of the instructions for the eIDP system, and incorporated feedback from the trainees to improve the overall trainee IDP experience, which advances the effectiveness of training

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden are 1,209 hours.
