Download as PDF 1953 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 9 / Thursday, January 14, 2016 / Notices likely to die from AIDS, and there is little tracking of the HIV epidemic and outcomes in adolescents. We propose a study of males aged 15– 29 years at risk for HIV. The SCC @TropMed, the clinical site of the activity, is a Clinical Research Site (CRS) and that conducts HIV prevention research in network clinical trials supported by National Institute of Health (NIH). The data will be collected from young MSM and TGW in Bangkok, Thailand through the CRS that serves MSM and transgender women (TGW). Although there are other MSM and TGW clinic settings in Bangkok, there is no cohort data providing information on incidence and risk factors for HIV incidence in the young. Therefore, this study also includes a longitudinal assessment (cohort) to assess HIV and sexually transmitted infection incidence and prevalence. This study also includes a qualitative component to assess adolescent and key leaders HIV prevention knowledge and practices. A study of young men at risk in Thailand is urgently needed to provide needed data to assess and implement prevention strategies and inform policies for HIV prevention in Thailand, as well as globally. There is no cost to participants other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 814.

The PRCs conduct outcomes-oriented, applied prevention research on a broad range of topics using a multi-disciplinary and community-engaged approach. Each PRC receives funding from the CDC to establish its core infrastructure and functions and support a core research project. In addition to core research projects, most PRCs are awarded funding to complete special interest projects (SIPs) and conduct other research projects. The DP14–001 program announcement included language that was used to develop and operationalize a set of 25 PRC Program evaluation indicators. The PRC Program logic model identifies program inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes. The list of indicators was revised to better reflect program needs and capture PRCs’ center and research activities, outputs, and outcomes. The CDC is currently approved to collect information from the PRCs through a structured telephone interview and a web-based survey hosted by a third-party. The web-based survey is designed to collect information on the PRCs’ collaborations with health departments; formal training programs and other training activities; and other-funded research projects conducted separate from their core projects or SIP research. Structured telephone interviews with key PRC informants allow PRC Program staff to collect indicator data that do not lend themselves to a survey-based methodology and require a qualitative approach. CDC requests OMB approval to revise the information collection plan as follows: (1) The content of the web-based survey will be updated to more closely align with revised evaluation indicators. In addition, the web-based survey will be migrated from a third party platform to a web-based data collection system hosted on CDC servers. Although the estimated burden per response will increase, the revised data collection system will be comprehensive and will reduce the need for follow-up clarification by PRC Program awardees. (2) CDC will discontinue telephone interviews and conduct key informant interviews (KII) every other year to capture qualitative information about PRC Network formation and cohesion. CDC will continue to use the information reported by PRCs to identify training and technical assistance needs, respond to requests for information from Congress and other sources, monitor grantees’ compliance with cooperative agreement requirements, evaluate progress made in achieving goals and objectives, and describe the impact and effectiveness of the PRC Program. The CDC currently funds 26 PRCs. Each PRC will annually report the required information to the CDC. The annualized estimated burden is expected to increase. This increase equates to an estimated weekly burden of one hour per respondent and more fully accounts for the burden of preparing responses, as well as the burden of reporting responses. Webbased data collection will occur on an annual basis. The KIIs will take place in 2016 and 2018. This equates to two PRC Network KIIs per PRC Program awardee during the three year OMB approval period. Responses are annualized in the burden table below. The proposed web-based data collection system will allow data entry during the entire year, which will enable respondents to distribute burden throughout each funding year. Response burden is expected to decrease in funding years 2 through 5, since the web-based data collection system will replicate a number of data elements from year-to-year, and respondents will only need to enter changes. OMB approval is requested for three years. CDC plans to implement revised reporting requirements in March 2016. PRC Program awardees are required to participate in information collection.

Proposed Project

    Prevention Research Centers Program National Evaluation Reporting 
System (OMB No. 0920-0650, exp. 5/31/2016)--Revision--National Center 
for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    In 1984, Congress passed Public Law 98-551 directing the Department 
of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to establish Centers for Research 
and Development of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. In 1986, 
the CDC received lead responsibility for this program, referred to as 
the Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Program. PRC Program awardees are 
managed as a CDC cooperative agreement with awards made for five years.
    In 2013, the CDC published program announcement DP14-001 for the 
current PRC Program funding cycle (September 30, 2014-September 29, 
2019). Twenty-six PRCs were selected through a competitive, external, 
peer-review process; the program is currently in its second year of the 
five year funding cycle.

[[Page 1954]]

    Each PRC is housed within an accredited school of public health or 
an accredited school of medicine or osteopathy with a preventive 
medicine residency program. The PRCs conduct outcomes-oriented, applied 
prevention research on a broad range of topics using a multi-
disciplinary and community-engaged approach. Each PRC receives funding 
from the CDC to establish its core infrastructure and functions and 
support a core research project. In addition to core research projects, 
most PRCs are awarded funding to complete special interest projects 
(SIPs) and conduct other research projects.
    The DP14-001 program announcement included language that was used 
to develop and operationalize a set of 25 PRC Program evaluation 
indicators. The PRC Program logic model identifies program inputs, 
activities, outputs, and outcomes. The list of indicators was revised 
to better reflect program needs and capture PRCs' center and research 
activities, outputs, and outcomes.
    The CDC is currently approved to collect information from the PRCs 
through a structured telephone interview and a web-based survey hosted 
by a third-party. The web-based survey is designed to collect 
information on the PRCs' collaborations with health departments; formal 
training programs and other training activities; and other-funded 
research projects conducted separate from their core projects or SIP 
research. Structured telephone interviews with key PRC informants allow 
PRC Program staff to collect indicator data that do not lend themselves 
to a survey-based methodology and require a qualitative approach.
    CDC requests OMB approval to revise the information collection plan 
as follows:

    (1) The content of the web-based survey will be updated to more 
closely align with revised evaluation indicators. In addition, the 
web-based survey will be migrated from a third party platform to a 
web-based data collection system hosted on CDC servers. Although the 
estimated burden per response will increase, the revised data 
collection system will be comprehensive and will reduce the need for 
follow-up clarification by PRC Program awardees.
    (2) CDC will discontinue telephone interviews and conduct key 
informant interviews (KII) every other year to capture qualitative 
information about PRC Network formation and cohesion.

    CDC will continue to use the information reported by PRCs to 
identify training and technical assistance needs, respond to requests 
for information from Congress and other sources, monitor grantees' 
compliance with cooperative agreement requirements, evaluate progress 
made in achieving goals and objectives, and describe the impact and 
effectiveness of the PRC Program.
    The CDC currently funds 26 PRCs. Each PRC will annually report the 
required information to the CDC. The annualized estimated burden is 
expected to increase. This increase equates to an estimated weekly 
burden of one hour per respondent and more fully accounts for the 
burden of preparing responses, as well as the burden of reporting 
responses. Web-based data collection will occur on an annual basis. The 
KIIs will take place in 2016 and 2018. This equates to two PRC Network 
KIIs per PRC Program awardee during the three year OMB approval period. 
Responses are annualized in the burden table below.
    The proposed web-based data collection system will allow data entry 
during the entire year, which will enable respondents to distribute 
burden throughout each funding year. Response burden is expected to 
decrease in funding years 2 through 5, since the web-based data 
collection system will replicate a number of data elements from year-
to-year, and respondents will only need to enter changes.
    OMB approval is requested for three years. CDC plans to implement 
revised reporting requirements in March 2016. PRC Program awardees are 
required to participate in information collection. There are no costs 
to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized 
burden hours are 1,299.
