You must include the DS form number (if applicable), information collection title, and OMB control number in any correspondence. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Direct requests for additional information regarding the collection listed in this notice, including requests for copies of the proposed information collection and supporting documents, to Dr. Amy DuBois, Office of the US Global AIDS Coordinator, who may be reached on 202–663–2440 or at duboisa@state.gov. We are soliciting public comments to permit the Department to: • Evaluate whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of our functions. • Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the proposed collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. • Minimize the reporting burden on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of technology. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wreier-aviles on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Abstract of Proposed Collection The US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) was established through enactment of the United States Leadership Against HIV/ AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–25), as amended by the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–293) (HIV/AIDS Leadership Act) to support the global response to HIV/ AIDS. In order to improve program monitoring, the PEPFAR Finance and Economics Work Group proposes to add reporting of expenditures by program area to the current routine reporting of program results for the annual report. Data will be collected from implementing partners in countries with PEPFAR programs using a standard tool (DS–4213) via an electronic interface. These data will then be analyzed to produce mean and range in expenditures by partner per result/ achievement for all PEPFAR program areas. These analyses then feed into partner and program reviews at the country level for monitoring and VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:11 Aug 07, 2012 Jkt 226001 evaluation on an ongoing basis. Summaries of these data provide key information about program costs under PEPFAR on a global level. Applying expenditure results will improve strategic budgeting, identification of efficient means of delivering services, accuracy in defining program targets, and will inform allocation of resources to ensure the program is accountable and using public funds for maximum impact. Methods Data will be collected in a standard electronic template available to all partners receiving funds under PEPFAR. To minimize the respondents’ reporting burden and need for information technology investment, a new module capturing expenditure data will be added to an already functional system. This approach will minimize US Government start up costs for the technology and ensure data collection processes are as efficient as possible. Dated: July 27, 2012.
