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;
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.

Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
The CDC is requesting a three-year
Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)
clearance for a Revision to an
information collection request (ICR) for
a research program focused on
identifying the environmental causes of
foodborne illness and improving
environmental public health practice.
This research program is conducted by
the Environmental Health Specialists
Network (EHS-Net), a collaborative
project of the CDC, U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA), and eight state
and local public health programs
(California; Tennessee; Minnesota;
Rhode Island; New York; New York
City, NY; Southern Nevada Health
District, NV; and Harris County, TX).
This ICR aims to assess whether an
educational intervention will result in
either the development or enhancement
of restaurant ill worker policies. This
will be accomplished by interviewing
restaurant managers, surveying workers,
and observing restaurant practices in
320 randomly selected and assigned
restaurants in the EHS-Net catchment
area. Burden hours would be associated
with the restaurant staff for the time to
answer questions about their restaurant.
There would be two to three site visits
depending upon which group the
restaurants were assigned to, that is, the
intervention or the control group. An
initial visit will be used to observe
baseline conditions and to provide the
intervention only to the restaurants
selected to receive it. A second visit will
be used to determine if the policies had
changed and to introduce the
intervention to the control restaurants
(if it is deemed successful), and a final
follow up visit to the control restaurants
that received the intervention on the
second visit.
Although approved in 2018, NCEH
and its program partners needed to
prioritize other data collections over
this study, and then had to delay the
current study due to the COVID–19
pandemic. NCEH partners provided
feedback to refine this research protocol,
revise the ICR, and plan to begin this
study in 2021. NCEH is requesting
approval for revisions which fall into
three categories: (1) Changes to comply
with the 2018 Revised Common Rule
and 21st Century Cures Act; (2) changes
to strengthen the study, based on recent
experience and stakeholder feedback;
and (3) changes to respond to the
COVID–19 pandemic.
NCEH is requesting a revised PRA
clearance for 715 responses per year and
for a time burden of 206 hours per year.
These changes result in a decrease of
1,412 responses and 146 hours per year
relative to the 2018 PRA clearance.
There is no cost to the respondents
other than their time.
