Abstract: The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), Division of Healthcare Preparedness Program (HPP) and the State and Local Initiative— Program Evaluation Section (SLI–PES), is proposing a Web-based reporting system to gather critical information and data from the 62 Awardees participating in the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program (NBHPP). The reporting system will capture information related on performance measures, critical benchmarks, minimal levels of readiness, program statistics, policies and procedures, surge capacity elements, surge capacity as measured by exercises, and other pertinent information for programmatic fiscal management, improvement and tracking performance. The data submitted to HPP will be gathered for mid-year reports and end of year reports on annual activities and progress. Awardees will indicate the progress made toward each of the financial and programmatic objectives noted on their cooperative agreement application (CAA) on the mid-year progress report. The end of year report on annual activities will require Awardees to provide additional details on objective achievement and budget/fiscal management. The end of year report will also require Awardees to present improvements made toward achieving the program’s critical benchmarks. In addition, the reporting will increase ASPR’s ability to quickly and efficiently analyze data, identify trends, make timely program decisions, and provide the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Congress, and other Operating Divisions with data and information.
