Notice with comment period.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as part of its continuing effort to reduce public burden and maximize the utility of government information, invites the general public and other Federal agencies the opportunity to comment on a proposed and/or continuing information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. This notice invites comment on a proposed information collection project titled Management Information Systems for Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs. This information collection aims to facilitate the monitoring of National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program awardee performance and submission of timely and accurate responses to inquiries from Congress and other stakeholders.


CDC must receive written comments on or before January 3, 2020.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental 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;

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

Management Information Systems for Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs (OMB Control No. 0920-0841, Exp. 6/30/2019)—Reinstatement with Change—National Center for Chronic Disease and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

In 2017, 66 awardees, representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, seven United States Association Pacific Islands and territories, and eight tribes and tribal organizations, were selected for funding under NOFO (DP171701DP17-1701, “Cancer Prevention and Control Programs for State, Territorial, and Tribal Organizations”). Under this cooperative agreement, awardees implement cancer prevention and control programs to reduce cancer morbidity, mortality, and disparities. To facilitate program monitoring, performance assessment, and evaluation, a web-based management information system is needed for collection and abstraction of information about program resources, partnerships, work plan activities, and evaluation efforts.

CDC is requesting OMB approval for the continued use of the Management Information System to collect, store, retrieve, share, and report accurate and timely information. OMB approval is requested for the term of three years, which coincides with the last three years of the program. All 66 awardees will submit information on data elements in the Management Information System annually for a total estimated burden of 66 hours. Information collected will be analyzed and used in aggregate to describe program efforts. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.
