GDC mission. The scope of the form involves obtaining information from 
investigators that: (1) Would like to submit data about their study 
into the GDC, (2) are affiliated with studies that adhere to GDC data 
submission conditions. The benefits of the collection are that it 
provides the needed information for investigators to understand the

standard mechanism for the GDC to assess incoming data submission 
    OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to 
respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized 
burden hours are 50 hours.
