A collaborative study by Brookhaven-McMaster-Central Michigan is underway to evaluate B(E2)↑ for 01+→21+ transitions. This work is a continuation of a previous USNDP evaluation and has been motivated by a large number of recent measurements and nuclear theory developments. It includes an extended compilation, data evaluation procedures and shell model calculations. The subset of B(E2)↑ recommended values for nuclei of relevance to the double-beta decay problem is presented, and evaluation policies of experimental data and systematics are discussed. Future plans for completion of the B(E2;. 01+→21+) evaluation project are also described.
