Abstract As part of its national service delivery system, MBDA awards cooperative agreements each year to fund the provision of business development services to eligible minority business enterprises (MBEs). The recipient of each cooperative agreement is competitively selected to operate one of the MBDA’s Business Center programs. In accordance with the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA), MBDA requires all center operators to report basic client information, service activities and progress on attainment of program goals via the Online CRM/ Performance database. The data inputs into the CRM/Performance database originate from the client intake forms used by each center to collect information from each minority business enterprise that receives technical business assistance from the center. This data provides the baseline from which the CRM/Performance database is populated. The Online CRM/ Performance Database is used to regularly monitor and evaluate the progress of the MBDA funded centers, to provide the Department and OMB with a summary of the quantitative information required to be submitted about government supported programs, and to implement the GPRA. This information is also summarized and included in the MBDA Annual Performance Report, which is made available to the public. In addition to the information collected from MBEs to provide service and performance reports, the MBDA Center award recipients are required to list MBEs to conduct business in the United States in the Online Phoenix Database. This listing is used to match those registered MBEs with opportunities entered in the Online Opportunity Database by public and private sector entities. The MBEs may also self-register via the Online Phoenix Database for notification of potential business opportunities. In 2012, the overall estimate of burden hours decreased for users under the newly adopted program structure as a result of the streamlining of certain administrative and reporting requirements. The MBDA Business Center programs will continue to use the Customer Relationship Management/Performance, Phoenix and Business Opportunity databases until the new program is redesigned during Fiscal Year 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    As part of its national service delivery system, MBDA awards 
cooperative agreements each year to fund the provision of business 
development services to eligible minority business enterprises (MBEs). 
The recipient of each cooperative agreement is competitively selected 
to operate one of the MBDA's Business Center programs. In accordance 
with the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA), MBDA requires all 
center operators to report basic client information, service activities 
and progress on attainment of program goals via the Online CRM/
Performance database. The data inputs into the CRM/Performance database 
originate from the client intake forms used by each center to collect 
information from each minority business enterprise that receives 
technical business assistance from the center. This data provides the 
baseline from which the CRM/Performance database is populated. The 
Online CRM/Performance Database is used to regularly monitor and 
evaluate the progress of the MBDA funded centers, to provide the 
Department and OMB with a summary of the quantitative information 
required to be submitted about government supported programs, and to 
implement the GPRA. This information is also summarized and included in 
the MBDA Annual Performance Report, which is made available to the 
public.
    In addition to the information collected from MBEs to provide 
service and performance reports, the MBDA Center award recipients are 
required to list MBEs to conduct business in the United States in the 
Online Phoenix Database. This listing is used to match those registered 
MBEs with opportunities entered in the Online Opportunity Database by

the Online Phoenix Database for notification of potential business 
opportunities.
    In 2012, the overall estimate of burden hours decreased for users 
under the newly adopted program structure as a result of the

MBDA Business Center programs will continue to use the Customer 
Relationship Management/Performance, Phoenix and Business Opportunity 
databases until the new program is redesigned during Fiscal Year 2016.

    Revision: In Fiscal Year 2015, MBDA has developed a new client

effectively advocate for your interests. The Client Engagement Form 
also may be used by MBDA and MBDA Business Centers for the purposes of
