Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 55 / Thursday, March 21, 2013 / Notices submit two Part A MAI Reports annually: The Part A MAI Plan (Plan) and the Part A MAI Year-End Annual Report (Annual Report). The Plan and Annual Report components of the report are linked to minimize the reporting burden and include drop-down menu responses; fields for reporting budget, expenditure, and aggregated client level data; and open-ended responses for describing client or service-level outcomes. Together, the Plan and Annual Report components collect information from grantees on MAIfunded services, expenditure patterns, the number and demographics of clients served, and client-level outcomes. The MAI Plan Narrative that accompanies the Plan web forms provides: (1) An explanation of the data submitted in the Plan web forms; (2) a summary of the Plan, including the plan and timeline for disbursing funds, monitoring service delivery, and implementing any service-related capacity development or technical assistance activities; and (3) the plan and timeline for documenting clientlevel outcome measures. In addition, if the EMA/TGA revised any planned services, allocation amounts, or target communities after their grant application was submitted, the changes must be highlighted and explained. The accompanying MAI Annual Report Narrative describes: (1) Progress towards achieving specific goals and objectives identified in the grantee’s approved MAI Plan for that fiscal year and in linking MAI services/activities to Part A and other Ryan White Program services; (2) achievements in relation to clientlevel health outcomes; (3) summary of challenges or barriers at the provider or grantee levels, the strategies and/or action steps implemented to address them, and lessons learned; and (4) discussion of MAI technical assistance needs identified by the EMA/TGA. This information is needed to monitor and assess: (1) Changes in the type and amount of HIV/AIDS health care and related services being provided to each disproportionately impacted community of color; (2) the aggregate number of persons receiving HIV/AIDS services within each racial and ethnic community; and (3) the impact of Part A MAI-funded services in terms of client-level and service-level health outcomes. This information also is used to plan new technical assistance and 17417 capacity development activities, and influence the HRSA policy and program management functions. The data provided to HRSA does not contain individual or personally identifiable information. No changes have been made to the Part A MAI Report. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    Abstract: HRSA's Division of Transplantation (DoT) is the primary 
entity in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) responsible 
for the Organ Transplant Program established under the National Organ 
Transplant Act (Pub. L. 98-507, codified at sections 371-377D of the 
Public Health Service (PHS) Act). Section 377A of the PHS Act 
authorizes the Secretary of HHS to establish a public education program 
to increase awareness about organ donation and the need to provide for 
an adequate rate of such donations. In brief, DoT's responsibilities 
are two-fold: (1) To provide oversight and guidance to the national

Procurement and Transplantation Network and the Scientific Registry of 
Transplant Recipients, and (2) to implement a program of public and

in this country. Many preventable deaths occur each year because of a 
staggering imbalance between the supply and demand for donor organs. As 
of March 2013, the national transplant waiting list exceeded 117,000. 
In 2011, the total number of deceased and living organ donors was only 
14,145. These donors enabled 28,538 patients to receive a transplant 
while 6,693 died waiting. Without successful interventions to increase 
donation, the disparity between need and supply is likely to be 
substantially exacerbated, resulting in more unnecessary deaths.
    Organdonor.gov is DoT's primary mechanism for providing the public 
with information about organ donation. Among the most visited pages on 
organdonor.gov are the donor and recipient life stories which in a 
recent evaluation study were shown to raise interest on the topic and, 
more important, persuade people to register as organ donors. To expand 
this component of organdonor.gov, DoT proposes to develop an 
application to give organ recipients, living donors, and donor families 
the opportunity to voluntarily submit their stories to DoT via a 
standardized online form. The online form will be posted on 
organdonor.gov and will collect demographic and contact information, 
the individual's donation/transplant story up to 500 words, a high 
resolution photo, and a signed authorization. The standardized, 
electronic form will increase HRSA staff's ability to process those 
stories more efficiently. In addition to enabling story submission, the 
online application process will make the donor and recipient life 
stories posted on the site searchable by the public to enhance public 
viewing and understanding of the organ donation process. Submission of 
a story and completion of the form is voluntary. Overall, this 
application has the potential to strengthen DoT's outreach efforts and 
increase organ donation registration in the United States.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and 
review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
    The annual estimate of burden is as follows:
