This notice invites comment on a proposed information collection project titled `Templates for Extramural Data Management Plans.' The aim of this collection is to provide Cooperative Agreement applicants and awardees with templates for the creation of Data Management Plans (DMP).

DATES:

CDC must receive written comments on or before October 7, 2019.

ADDRESSES:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below.

The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help:

1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;Start Printed Page 38988

2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and

4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

5. Assess information collection costs.

Proposed Project

Templates for Extramural Data Management Plans—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Data management plans (DMPs) are required of entities using CDC funds to collect or generate public health data. DMPs will be submitted to CDC by grant and cooperative agreement awardees for assessment to verify that they are concordant with CDC's data sharing policy. Currently, CDC does not have a standard template for a DMP. DMPs can be a checklist, paragraph, or any other format. Due to this fact, CDC has had to refer extramural applicants and recipients to external websites for examples on how to construct a DMP. This new ICR is being developed by CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) to create standardized templates for DMPs so that they will be easier to create, easier to review, better ensure compliance with CDC's requirements, and increase the likelihood of first time approval by project officers. DMPs will be submitted as standalone sections of the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) and annual continuation applications; revisions can also be submitted by the awardees as needed. CDC requests approval for 933 Burden Hours. There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
