the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the

Proposed Project: Web-Based Semi Annual Report (SAR) (OMB No. 0915-
0262)--Extension

    The HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) collects the annual 
reporting requirements for the primary care grantees funded by BPHC 
using the Web-based Semi Annual Report (SAR). The SAR includes 
reporting requirements for grantees of the following primary care 
programs: State Primary Care Associations and State Primary Care 
Offices. Authorizing legislation is found in Section 330(m) of the 
Public Health Service Act, as amended.
    BPHC collects data on its programs to ensure compliance with 
legislative mandates and to monitor and report on program 
accomplishments. To meet these objectives, BPHC requires a core set of 
information collected semi-annually that is appropriate for monitoring 
and evaluating performance and reporting on annual trends. The SAR has 
been a valuable instrument for collecting this information from 
grantees. The SAR provides data on services, characteristics of 
populations, leveraged funds, and services that fall within the scope 
of the grant.
    Estimates of annualized burden are as follows:
