The UPR measures grantee success in meeting (1) the objectives of the grant project, and (2) the crosscutting outcomes developed for the Bureau of Health Professions’ education and training programs.

Part II collects information on activities specific to a given program. Part III, the Comprehensive Performance Management System (CPMS), collects data on overall project performance related to the Bureau’s strategic goals, objectives, outcomes, and indicators. Progress will be measured based on the Number of respondents Report Responses per respondent objectives of the grant project, and outcome measures and indicators developed by the Bureau to meet requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). The Bureau has simplified several tables in UPR II and added the ability for grantees to provide better race and ethnicity data. In addition, to respond to the requirements of GPRA, the Bureau has revised its cross-cutting goals, expected outcomes, and indicators in UPR III CPMS that provide the framework for collection of outcome data for its Title VII and VIII programs.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under 
review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request 
a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, call the 
HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301) 443-1129.
    The following request has been submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995:

Proposed Project

    The HRSA Uniform Progress Report (UPR) is used for the preparation 
and submission of continuation applications for Title VII and VIII 
health professions and nursing education and training programs. The UPR 
measures grantee success in meeting (1) the objectives of the grant 
project, and (2) the cross-cutting outcomes developed for the Bureau of 
Health Professions' education and training programs. Part I of the 
progress report is designed to collect information to determine whether 
sufficient progress has been made on the approved project objectives, 
as grantees must demonstrate satisfactory progress to warrant 
continuation of funding. Part II collects information on activities 
specific to a given program. Part III, the Comprehensive Performance 
Management System (CPMS), collects data on overall project performance 
related to the Bureau's strategic goals, objectives, outcomes, and 
indicators. Progress will be measured based on the objectives of the 
grant project, and outcome measures and indicators developed by the 
Bureau to meet requirements of the Government Performance and Results 
Act (GPRA).
    The Bureau has simplified several tables in UPR II and added the 
ability for grantees to provide better race and ethnicity data. In 
addition, to respond to the requirements of GPRA, the Bureau has 
revised its cross-cutting goals, expected outcomes, and indicators in 
UPR III CPMS that provide the framework for collection of outcome data 
for its Title VII and VIII programs.
    An outcome-based performance system is critical for measuring 
whether program support is meeting national health workforce 
objectives. At the core of the performance measurement system are found 
cross-cutting goals with respect to workforce quality, supply, 
diversity, and distribution of the health professions workforce.
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                     Number of     Responses per       Total         Hours per     Total burden

    Written comments and recommendations concerning the proposed 
information collection should be sent within 30 days of this notice to 
the desk officer for HRSA, either by e-mail to OIRA_
submission@omb.eop.gov or by fax to 202-395-6974. Please direct all
