Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Objective Work Plan (OWP) and Objective Progress Report 
(OPR).
    OMB No.: 0970-0429.
    Description: Content and formatting changes are being made to the 
OPR and OWP. The information in OPR is currently collected on quarterly 
basis to monitor the performance of grantees and better gauge grantee 
progress. The OWP is used by applicants when they submit their 
proposals and then by grantees to monitor their projects once the award 
is made by ANA. ANA has determined that the requirement for ANA 
grantees to submit information about the project activities on 
quarterly basis creates undue burden for Grantees. Therefore, ANA has 
reformatted the OPR to require Grantees submit semi-annual reports 
instead of quarterly report. This will reduce the administrative burden 
on Grantees, especially the smaller organizations. The majority of 
content being requested from the grantees essentially remain same 
except for the frequency of reporting.
    OPR: The following are proposed content changes to the document:
    Grantee Information: Report Frequency--This section of OPR will be 
reformatted to request semi-annual or final project data instead of 
quarterly information. The other sections of the document with 
reference to ``quarterly'' information will be changed to reflect the 
shift from four-times a year reporting requirement to twice per year.
    Objective Work Plan Update: Content remains the same. No changes 
are proposed for this section of the OPR.
    Impact indicator: Current Status of Expected Results and Current 
Status of Expected Benefits which are reported separately on the OPR 
will be combined

[[Page 67438]]

to read ``Current Status of Expected Results and Benefits.'' The 
content requested in this section is similar to the previous OPR 
without the added burden of having the reporting organizations provide 
the analysis that distinguish between ``results and benefits''. Every 
section of the document will be rewritten to reflect this change.
    OWP: ANA proposes to reformat the OWP (content is same) by swapping 
the Objective field with Problem Statement. In other words, this 
section will require respondents to begin with a concise statement 
about the problem the project is designed to address and will be 
followed by more details about the objectives of the project.
    The two fields ``Results Expected and Benefits Expected'' will be 
combined into one field to read ``Results and benefits Expected''. This 
will reduce redundancy and help reduce the burden on Grantees.
    Respondents: Tribal Government, Native non-profit organizations, 
Tribal Colleges & Universities.
