Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 1440-1441 [2011-144]

Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 1440 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 6 / Monday, January 10, 2011 / Notices —Budget and Budget Justification 15 points. For FY 2011, the two criteria for the SEDS–AFI FOA will be titled and weighted as follows: —Approach 90 points and —Budget and Budget Justification 10 points. The criteria titles will match the titles found in the project description section of the FOAs. Matching titles will help applicants to better understand the connection between the two sections of the FOAs. The assigned weights better reflect what ANA considers to be the most important elements of the project application. (Legal authority: Section 803(c) of NAPA, as amended.) ii. ANA Evaluation Criteria: Included here is a summary of each criterion. The FOAs will include a more detailed description of the evaluation criteria and the associated project description. (a) Objectives and Need for Assistance: Under this criterion, applications will be evaluated on the applicant’s community and applicant identification, connection to the community, community participation in the project development, the problem statement, and the briefly stated objectives. (b) Outcomes Expected: Under this criterion, applications will be evaluated on the strength of the project outcomes expected, which include the project goal, the results and benefits expected, and one project-specific impact indicator. For language applications that are designed to teach a Native language, applicants must include an impact indicator that shows advancement of language fluency. All other language projects should provide an impact indicator that measures an increase in community interest to preserve the language. (c) Approach: Under this criterion, the application will be evaluated on the strength of the project approach. This criterion includes two sub-criteria; the project strategy and the OWP. The project strategy sub-criterion includes a detailed description of the implementation plan, community involvement and outreach during implementation, and contingency planning to support project implementation. In addition, partnerships and leveraged resources will be evaluated as to their contribution within the overall strategy of project implementation and its sustainability; however, the target numbers will not be evaluated or scored. In this section reviewers will also consider organizational capacity and project sustainability. The OWP VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:19 Jan 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 sub-criterion includes a review of the OWP form and its strength as an effective implementation tool. (d) Budget: Under this criterion, the application will be evaluated on the strength of the budget and how well it supports successful completion of the project objectives. This criterion includes a line-item budget and budget justification for each line item for each budget period. The changes to the content of evaluation criteria, and the complementary changes to the project description section of the FOA, will more effectively guide panel reviewers and applicants on what ANA believes are critical components of a project application.

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, e-mail 
paperwork@hrsa.gov or 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: Health Center Controlled Networks Progress Reports 
(OMB No. 0915-0315)--Revision

    The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) collects 
network outcome measures, conducts evaluation of those measures, and 
has an electronic reporting system for the following types of grantees: 
Health Information Technology Planning Grants, Electronic Health Record 
Implementation (including High Impact Electronic Health Records 
Implementation) for Health Center Controlled Networks, and Health 
Information Technology Innovations for Health Center Controlled 
Networks. In order to help carry out its mission, HRSA created a set of 
performance measures that grantees use to evaluate the effectiveness of 
their service programs and monitor their progress through the use of 
performance reporting data.
    Grantees report to HRSA on their grants to accomplish the following 
goals: Increase access to needed data and services; improve quality, 
efficiency and effectiveness of network services; and enhance ability 
to track and monitor patient outcomes. Grantees submit their progress 
reports in a mid-

year report and an accumulative annual progress report each fiscal year 
of the grant. The increase in burden since 2007 is due to an increase 
in the number of grantees (46 to 89) and an increase in the hours per 
response. The increase in the hours per response is due to a re-
estimation of burden for grantees.
    The annual estimate of burden is as follows:
