The Bureau collects data in the UDS which is used to ensure compliance Number of respondents Type of report Responses per respondent with legislative mandates and to report to Congress and policymakers on program accomplishments. To meet these objectives, BPHC requires a core set of data collected annually that is appropriate for monitoring and evaluating performance and reporting on annual trends.

The Disadvantaged Assistance Tracking and Outcome Report (DATOR), is used to track program participants throughout the health professions pipeline into the health care workforce. The DATOR, to be completed annually by HCOP and COE grantees, includes basic data on student participants (name, social security number, gender, race/ethnicity; targeted health professions, their status in the educational pipeline from preprofessional through professional training; financial assistance received through the grants funded under sections 739 and 740 of the PHS Act in the form of stipends, fellowships or per diem; and their employment or practice setting following their entry into the health care work force). The proposed reporting instrument does not add significantly to the grantees reporting burden. This reporting instrument complements the grantees internal automated reporting mechanisms of using name and social security number in tracking students.

To request more information on the proposed project or to obtain copy of the Proposed Project: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Awardee Application and Reporting Tool (AART): (New) The Awardee Application and Reporting Tool (AART) will be an online system allowing the 62 Awardees participating in the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program (NBHPP) to electronically submit a continuing cooperative agreement application (CAA), mid-year progress report on annual activities, a final report on annual activities and progress indicator report to HRSA’s Healthcare Systems Bureau, Division of Healthcare Preparedness. The CAA will be a standardized application consisting Number of respondents Submission type Responses per Respondent of 16 Critical Benchmarks (CBM). For each CBM, Awardees will be required to provide a goal, objectives, and a budget outlining how funding provided by HRSA will be spent during the coming year. On the mid-year progress report, Awardees will indicate the progress they have made toward each of the objectives they noted on their CAA. For the final report on annual activities, Awardees will provide additional details on how their objectives were being achieved and how the program monies were spent. On the progress indicator report, Awardees will indicate the progress they have made to date toward achieving the program’s CBM. Currently, the submission of the CAA and progress reports is a manual process by which Awardees submit paper-based submissions or electronically transmit text files to HRSA project officers (POs). These files are then reviewed manually and data analysis is difficult. The AART system will provide POs with the ability to review and approve applications, review progress reports, and generate reports online. In addition, the reporting interface will allow HRSA to quickly and efficiently analyze data, identify trends, make timely program decisions, and provide the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Congress, or other Agencies with any specific data or metrics requested.

represented minorities and disadvantaged individuals to enter and

participants throughout the health professions pipeline into the health 
care workforce.
    The DATOR, to be completed annually by HCOP and COE grantees, 
includes basic data on student participants (name, social security
