Selection Criteria: The selection criteria for this competition are from 34 CFR parts 385 and 389 of the program regulations and 34 CFR part 75.210 of EDGAR and are in the application package. 2. Review and Selection Process: Additional factors we consider in selecting an application for an award are in 34 CFR parts 385 and 389.30. VI. Award Administration Information 1. Award Notices: If your application is successful, we notify your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and send you a Grant Award Notification (GAN). We may also notify you informally. If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, we notify you. 2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify administrative and national policy requirements in the application package and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice. We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of an award in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice and include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also incorporates your approved application as part of your binding commitments under the grant. 3. Reporting: At the end of your project period, you must submit a final performance report, including financial information, as directed by the Secretary. If you receive a multi-year award, you must submit an annual performance report that provides the most current performance and financial expenditure information as specified by the Secretary in 34 CFR 75.118. 4. Performance Measures: The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) directs Federal departments and agencies to improve the effectiveness of their programs by engaging in strategic planning, setting outcome-related goals for programs, and measuring program results against those goals. The goal of the RCEP—RRCEP–CRP is to upgrade the skills of personnel currently employed in private rehabilitation agencies and facilities that cooperate with State vocational rehabilitation units in providing vocational rehabilitation and other rehabilitation services and personnel in centers for independent living. In order VerDate jul<14>2003 13:40 Jul 27, 2005 Jkt 205001 to measure the success of RRCEPs in meeting this goal, each RRCEP grantee is required to conduct an evaluation of RRCEP training activities. In annual performance reports, RRCEPs are required to provide specific information on the number of training activities, the topics of each training program, the number of participants served, the target groups represented by participants, and summary data from participant evaluations. This information allows the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to measure results against the regional needs assessment conducted by the RRCEP and against the goal of upgrading the skills of personnel currently employed in CRPs that cooperate with State vocational rehabilitation units in providing vocational rehabilitation and other rehabilitation services and centers for independent living. RSA is in the process of developing a uniform data collection instrument for future use to collect these data directly from the grantee. We expect to have a draft instrument available for public comment by December 31, 2005. Use of the uniform data collection instrument is expected to be required beginning with the 2007 project period. VII.
