Download as PDF 15227 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 57 / Monday, March 27, 2017 / Notices information request collection title for reference, pursuant to Section 3506(c)(2)(A), the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Information Collection Request Title: Client-Level Data Reporting System. OMB No: 0915–0323—Extension. Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program’s (RWHAP) client-level data reporting system, entitled the RWHAP Services Report or the Ryan White Services Report (RSR), is designed to collect information from grant recipients, as well as their subcontracted service providers, funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009. The RWHAP, authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, provides entities funded by the program with flexibility to respond effectively to the changing HIV epidemic, with an emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending services for people living with HIV across this country, as well as targeting resources to areas that have the greatest needs. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: All parts of RWHAP specify HRSA’s responsibilities in administering grant funds, allocating funds, evaluating programs for the populations served, and improving quality of care. The RSR provides data on the characteristics of RWHAP-funded recipients, their contracted service providers, and the clients served with program funds. The RSR is intended to support clinical quality management, performance measurement, service delivery, and client monitoring at the service provider and client levels. The RSR reporting system consists of two online data forms, the Recipient Report and the Service Provider Report, as well as a data file containing the client-level data elements. Data are submitted annually. The statute specifies the importance of recipient accountability for the services delivered and the funding allocated and expended for those services as specified in their grant award and linking performance to budget. The RSR is used to ensure compliance with the law, including evaluating the progress of programs, monitoring recipient and provider performance, and informing annual reports to Congress. Information collected through the RSR is critical for HRSA, state and local recipients, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems, assess trends in service utilization, and identify areas of greatest need. Likely Respondents: RWHAP Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D recipients and their contracted service providers. 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.

Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program: Program Allocation and Expenditure Forms, OMB No. 0915–0318—Revision. Abstract: HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) administers the Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act as amended by the Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Allocation and Expenditure Forms (A&E Reports), in conjunction with the Consolidated List of Contractors (CLC), enables HAB to monitor and track the use of grant funds for compliance with program and grants policies and requirements under the statute. By regulation, recipients are required to submit financial reports annually to HRSA, and the A&E Reports and the CLC are HAB’s mechanism to implement that requirement. Recipients funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (codified under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act) are required to report financial data to HRSA at the beginning (Allocations Form) and at the end (Expenditure Form) of their annual budget period. Recipients funded under Parts A and B are required to report information about their service provider contracts in the CLC. The forms require recipients to report how funds are allocated and spent on core medical and support services for people living with HIV, and on various program components, such as administration, planning and evaluation, and clinical quality management. The A&E Reports are identical in the types of information they collect. However, the Allocations Report tracks the allocation of the award at the beginning of the annual budget period, and the Expenditures Report tracks actual expenditures (including carryover dollars) at the end of the annual budget period. The CLC form identifies a recipient’s contracts with service providers for the current grant year, the contract amount, and the types of services being provided. This revision proposes minor changes to the list of allowable services, specifically by consolidating ‘‘Legal Services’’ and ‘‘Permanency Planning’’ into ‘‘Other Professional Services’’ under Part A and Part B; deleting a ‘‘Treatment Adherence Counseling’’ category from allowable services under Part A; adding ‘‘Housing Services’’ and ‘‘Early Intervention Services’’ under Part C program; and adding ‘‘Substance Abuse Services— Residential’’ under Part D program. As a result of these changes and improving the electronic submission of data through HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks, the estimated total annual burden hours will decrease from 4,266 hours in 2014 to 2,692 in 2017. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Accurate allocation, expenditure, and service contract records of the recipients receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding are critical to the implementation of the statute. The primary purposes of these forms are to provide information on the number of grant dollars spent on various services and program components and ensure program compliance. Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program recipients. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested.

    Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program: 
Program Allocation and Expenditure Forms, OMB No. 0915-0318--Revision.
    Abstract: HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) administers the Ryan White 
HIV/AIDS Program authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health 
Service Act as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension 
Act of 2009. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Allocation and Expenditure 
Forms (A&E Reports), in conjunction with the Consolidated List of 
Contractors (CLC), enables HAB to monitor and track the use of grant 
funds for compliance with program and grants policies and requirements 
under the statute. By regulation, recipients are required to submit 
financial reports annually to HRSA, and the A&E Reports and the CLC are 
HAB's mechanism to implement that requirement. Recipients funded under 
Parts A, B, C, and D of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (codified under 
Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act) are required to report 
financial data to HRSA at the beginning (Allocations Form) and at the 
end (Expenditure Form) of their annual budget period. Recipients funded 
under Parts A and B are required to report information about their 
service provider contracts in the CLC.
    The forms require recipients to report how funds are allocated and 
spent on core medical and support services for people living with HIV, 
and on various program components, such as administration, planning and 
evaluation, and clinical quality management. The A&E Reports are 
identical in the types of information they collect. However, the 
Allocations Report tracks the allocation of the award at the beginning 
of the annual budget period, and the Expenditures Report tracks actual 
expenditures (including carryover dollars) at the end of the annual 
budget period. The CLC form identifies a recipient's contracts with 
service providers for the current grant year, the contract amount, and 
the types of services being provided. This revision proposes minor 
changes to the list of allowable services, specifically by 
consolidating ``Legal Services'' and ``Permanency Planning'' into 
``Other Professional Services'' under Part A and Part B; deleting a 
``Treatment Adherence Counseling'' category from allowable services 
under Part A; adding ``Housing Services'' and ``Early Intervention 
Services'' under Part C program; and adding ``Substance Abuse 
Services--Residential'' under Part D program. As a result of these 
changes and improving the electronic submission of data through HRSA's 
Electronic Handbooks, the estimated total annual burden hours will 
decrease from 4,266 hours in 2014 to 2,692 in 2017.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Accurate allocation, 
expenditure, and service contract records of the recipients receiving 
Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding are critical to the implementation 
of the statute. The primary purposes of these forms are to provide 
information on the number of grant dollars spent on various services 
and program components and ensure program compliance.
    Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients.
    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 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 ICR are summarized in the table below.
