Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 74317-74318 [E7-25336]

Download as PDF 74317 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 249 / Monday, December 31, 2007 / Notices AIDS Program (codified under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act) would be required to report financial data to HRSA at the beginning and end of their grant cycle. All parts of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program specify HRSA’s responsibilities in the administration of grant funds. Accurate allocation and expenditure records of the grantees receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding are critical to the implementation of the legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its responsibilities. The new law changes how Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funds can be used, with an emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending services for people living with HIV/AIDS across this country. More money will be spent on direct health care for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program clients. Under the new law, unless they receive a waiver, grantees receiving funds under Parts A, B, and C must spend at least 75 percent of funds on ‘‘core medical services’’ and can spend no more than 5 percent or 3 million dollars (whichever is smaller) on clinical quality management. Under Parts A–D, there is also a 10 percent spending cap on grantee administration. The forms would require grantees to report on how funds are allocated and spent on core and non-core services, and on various program components, such as administration, planning and evaluation, and quality management. The two forms are identical in the types of information they collect. However, the first report would track the allocation of their award at the Number of grantee respondents Program under which grantee is funded Part Part Part Part Part Part Responses per grantee beginning of their grant cycle and the second report would track actual expenditures (including carryover dollars) at the end of their grant cycle. The primary purposes of these forms are to: (1) provide information on the number of grant dollars spent on various services and program components, and (2) oversee compliance with the intent of congressional appropriations in a timely manner. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to the Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected on these reports is critical for HRSA, State, and local grantees, and individual providers to evaluate the effectiveness of these programs. The response burden for grantees is estimated as: Total responses Hours to complete each form Total hours A ...................................................................................

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: HRSA AIDS Drug Assistance Program Quarterly Report--
(OMB No. 0915-0295): Revision

    HRSA's AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is funded through Part B 
of Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Ryan 
White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006 (The Ryan White HIV/
AIDS Program), which provides grants to States and Territories. The 
ADAP provides medications for the treatment of HIV disease. Program 
funds may also be used to purchase health insurance for eligible 
clients or for services that enhance access, adherence, and monitoring 
of drug treatments.
    Each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 
several Territories receive ADAP grants. As part of the funding 
requirements, ADAP grantees submit quarterly reports that include 
information on patients served, pharmaceuticals prescribed, pricing, 
and other sources of support to provide AIDS medication treatment, 
eligibility requirements, cost data, and coordination with Medicaid. 
Each quarterly report requests updates from programs on number of 
patients served, type of pharmaceuticals prescribed, and prices paid to 
provide medication. The first quarterly report of each ADAP fiscal year 
(due in July of each year) also requests information that only changes 
annually (e.g., State funding, drug formulary, eligibility criteria for 
enrollment, and cost-saving strategies including coordinating with 
Medicaid).
    The quarterly report represents the best method for HRSA to 
determine how ADAP grants are being expended and to provide answers to 
requests from Congress and other organizations.
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:
