The collaborative cooperative agreement is part of an initiative within NCCDPHP to standardize and streamline the funding and performance monitoring processes for programs funded through the Center; to promote more efficient ways to use resources; and to achieve greater health impact. The objectives for awardees, and the performance indicators defined for them, reflect CDC’s support for more integrated approaches to the prevention and control of chronic conditions. Awardees will use the information collection to manage and coordinate and control strategies implemented by awardees. CDC will also use the information collection to respond to Congressional and stakeholder inquiries about chronic disease control activities, program implementation, and program impact. Finally, the information collection will allow CDC to evaluate the success of the collaborative funding model which places increased emphasis on partnerships as well as policy and environmental strategies for preventing and controlling chronic diseases. Information will be collected from each State-based program twice per year. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. their activities and to improve their efforts to prevent and control chronic diseases. The MIS will allow awardees to fulfill their reporting obligations under the cooperative agreements in an efficient manner by employing a single instrument to collect necessary information for both progress reports and continuation applications including work plans. CDC will use the information collected in the MIS to monitor each awardee’s progress and to make adjustments, as needed, in the type and level of technical assistance provided to them. The information collection will allow CDC to oversee the use of Federal funds, and identify and disseminate information about successful prevention ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN TABLE Number of respondents Type of respondents State State State State Average burden per response (in hours) Number of responses per respondent Total burden Diabetes Program ..................................................................................
