DIR ensures that the objective review process is independent, efficient, effective, economical, and complies with the applicable statutes, regulations, and policies. Applications are reviewed by subject experts knowledgeable in health and public health disciplines for which support is requested. Review findings are advisory to HRSA programs responsible for making award decisions. This announcement is a request for comments on the proposed information collection system, the Reviewer Recruitment Module (RRM). HRSA utilizes an existing web-based data collection form and database to gather critical reviewer information. The existing on-line Grant Reviewer Recruitment Form uses standardized categories of information in drop down menu format for data such as: Degree, specialty, occupation, work setting, and in select instances affiliations with organizations and institutions that serve special populations. Some program regulations require that application objective review panels contain consumers of health services. Other demographic data may be voluntarily provided by a potential reviewer. Defined data elements help HRSA find and select expert grant reviewers for objective review committees. The webbased system also permits reviewers to access and update their information at will and as needed. HRSA maintains a roster of approximately 9,000 qualified individuals who have actively served on HRSA objective review committees. The updated RRM simplifies reviewer application entry using: A user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) with fewer data drop down menu choices, and a search engine that supports key word queries in the actual resume text. The RRM will be 508 compliant and accessible by the general public via a link on the HRSA internet site, or by keying the RRM URL into their browser. The RRM will be accessible using any of the commonly used internet browsers. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA currently utilizes a web-based data collection Grant Reviewer Recruitment Form to collect information from individuals who wish to volunteer as objective review committee participants for the agency’s discretionary and competitive grant or cooperative agreement funding opportunities. The RRM will replace the original with a revised web-based application that is easier and much less burdensome to use for potential reviewers. RRM will also provide HRSA with more robust, efficient, and effective search and communication functionality with which to identify and contact qualified potential grant reviewers. The RRM will have an enhanced search and reporting capability to help DIR ensure that HRSA’s reviewer pool has the necessary skills and diversity to meet our ever-evolving need for qualified reviewers. If DIR identifies either an expertise or demographic that is underrepresented in the RRM pool, DIR can recruit specifically to address those needs. Expertise is always the primary determinant in selecting potential reviewers for any specific grant review; no reviewer is required to provide demographic information to join the reviewer pool or be selected as a reviewer for any competition. Likely Respondents: All HRSA reviewers must possess the technical Number of respondents Form name Responses per respondent skill and ability to access the internet on a secure desktop laptop, or touch pad, and either a land line or VOIP capability in order to participate in HRSA objective review committees. The reviewer expertise and experience needed varies with each competitive grant program but is consistent with the HRSA mission to address the availability and delivery of quality health care to all Americans. Generally, our reviewers are current or retired professionals with backgrounds in health care; health service delivery; education and career development in relevant professions; and health center facilities’ financing, planning, construction, and management. Certain HRSA programs require by legislation the inclusion of consumers of specific health care services in the objective review committee. In these instances consumers of those specified services are qualified per se to be considered for certain objective reviews.

Information Collection Request Title: The Division of Independent 
Review Grant Reviewer Recruitment Form

OMB No. 0915-0295 Revision

    Abstract: HRSA's Division of Independent Review (DIR) is 
responsible for administering the review of eligible grant applications 
submitted to HRSA. DIR ensures that the objective review process is 
independent, efficient, effective, economical, and complies with the 
applicable statutes, regulations, and policies. Applications are 
reviewed by subject experts knowledgeable in health and public health 
disciplines for which support is requested. Review findings are 
advisory to HRSA programs responsible for making award decisions.
    This announcement is a request for comments on the proposed 
information collection system, the Reviewer Recruitment Module (RRM). 
HRSA utilizes an existing web-based data collection form and database 
to gather critical reviewer information. The existing on-line Grant 
Reviewer Recruitment Form uses standardized categories of information 
in drop down menu format for data such as: Degree, specialty, 
occupation, work setting, and in select instances affiliations with 
organizations and institutions that serve special populations. Some 
program regulations require that application objective review panels 
contain consumers of health services. Other demographic data may be 
voluntarily provided by a potential reviewer. Defined data elements 
help HRSA find and select expert grant reviewers for objective review 
committees. The web-based system also permits reviewers to access and 
update their information at will and as needed. HRSA maintains a roster 
of approximately 9,000 qualified individuals who have actively served 
on HRSA objective review committees. The updated RRM simplifies 
reviewer application entry using: A user-friendly Graphical User 
Interface (GUI) with fewer data drop down menu choices, and a search 
engine that supports key word queries in the actual resume text. The 
RRM will be 508 compliant and accessible by the general public via a 
link on the HRSA internet site, or by keying the RRM URL into their 
browser. The RRM will be accessible using any of the commonly used 
internet browsers.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA currently utilizes a 
web-based data collection Grant Reviewer Recruitment Form to collect 
information from individuals who wish to volunteer as objective review 
committee participants for the agency's discretionary and competitive 
grant or cooperative agreement funding opportunities. The RRM will 
replace the original with a revised web-based application that is 
easier and much less burdensome to use for potential reviewers. RRM 
will also provide HRSA with more robust, efficient, and effective 
search and communication functionality with which to identify and 
contact qualified potential grant reviewers. The RRM will have an 
enhanced search and reporting capability to help DIR ensure that HRSA's 
reviewer pool has the necessary skills and diversity to meet our ever-
evolving need for qualified reviewers. If DIR identifies either an 
expertise or demographic that is underrepresented in the RRM pool, DIR 
can recruit specifically to address those needs. Expertise is always 
the primary determinant in selecting potential reviewers for any 
specific grant review; no reviewer is required to provide demographic 
information to join the reviewer pool or be selected as a reviewer for 
any competition.
    Likely Respondents: All HRSA reviewers must possess the technical 
skill and ability to access the internet on a secure desktop laptop, or 
touch pad, and either a land line or VOIP capability in order to 
participate in HRSA objective review committees. The reviewer expertise 
and experience needed varies with each competitive grant program but is 
consistent with the HRSA mission to address the availability and 
delivery of quality health care to all Americans. Generally, our 
reviewers are current or retired professionals with backgrounds in 
health care; health service delivery; education and career development 
in relevant professions; and health center facilities' financing, 
planning, construction, and management. Certain HRSA programs require 
by legislation the inclusion of consumers of specific health care 
services in the objective review committee. In these instances 
consumers of those specified services are qualified per se to be 
considered for certain objective reviews.
    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 Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below.

    HRSA specifically requests comments on (1) the necessity and 
utility of the proposed information collection for the proper 
performance of the agency's functions, (2) the accuracy of the 
estimated burden, (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity 
of the information to be collected, and (4) the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology to 
minimize the information collection burden.
