Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 65300 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 211 / Thursday, October 31, 2013 / Notices activity data at the performance measurement level, thereby reducing burden. Six commenters focused on CNCS’s expectation that programs aim to achieve 100% retention, reliance on data from the portal, and the mechanisms for providing comments on this data. The data in the performance indicator tab (enrollment, retention, 30day enrollment and 30-day exit data) will refresh for each reporting period. In response to comments, CNCS will only require this tab for the end-of-year GPR due in October 2014 and each year thereafter, and the instructions have been updated to reflect this change. CNCS will request an IT enhancement to add a warning to the performance indicators tab that the data cannot be refreshed once it has been populated. CNCS recognizes that retention rates may vary among effective programs depending on the program model. CNCS will continue to request explanations for any retention rate below 100%. Text boxes are provided for grantees to comment on data from the portal that requires explanation. Three commenters focused on requiring explanations for incomplete data (performance indicators and performance measures) in the mid-year GPR. CNCS will not include the performance indicators tab in the midyear GPR. We have updated the instructions for the mid-year GPR with instructions to enter ‘‘NA’’ in the outcome explanation fields as it is a system requirement that some text be entered in these fields. Two commenters focused on changes in the performance measurement data collected. The performance measure section of the new GPR requires no data that was not collected in the old GPR. One commenter suggested that CNCS should collect performance measurement data as percentages rather than numerical values. Whole numbers are required so that data can be aggregated across programs. Five commenters stated that instructions for narrative questions are not clear to state commissions. We have added additional information in the instructions to clarify how state commissions should address the narrative questions.
