Agency Recordkeeping/Reporting Requirements Under Emergency Review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), 43992-43993 [2017-20022]

Download as PDF 43992 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 181 / Wednesday, September 20, 2017 / Notices For this project, we will use data from U.S. state birth defect surveillance systems to identify a population-based sample of individuals 18 to 45 years of age born with CHD. We will then use an automated process of searching state databases and online search engines, as well as have individuals perform more time-intensive online searches to find current addresses for those eligible participants and mail surveys to them inquiring about their barriers to health care, quality of life, social and educational outcomes, and transition of care from childhood to adulthood. The information collected from this population-based survey will be used to inform current knowledge, allocate resources, develop services, and, ultimately, improve long-term health of adults born with CHD. We estimate sending a survey to 4,183 individuals with CHD over a 2-year period, and receiving completed surveys from 2,928 individuals (70%). The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The contact information form takes approximately two minutes to complete. There are no costs to participants other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 711.

OMB No.: Revision of 0970–0461. Description: The recent climatic events of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have created catastrophic disasters in Texas, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Florida. President Trump has declared these climatic events as major disaster declarations. FEMA is providing assistances to these states and territories under declaration numbers DR–4332 & DR–4337. There are looming public health issues related to flooding, and especially among at risk populations. Risks include contracting water-borne and vector-borne diseases, substance abuse, and mental health concerns, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, and homelessness. Therefore, it is essential for the mission of ACF to activate the Immediate Disaster Case Management (IDCM) Electronic Case Management Record System (ECMRS). The ECMRS will be used to collect and manage information from the disaster affected clients. This information includes demographics, disaster caused unmet needs, and referrals provided.

With the exception of these policies, the Compliance Manual supersedes other previous Health Center Program nonregulatory policy issuances related to Health Center Program compliance or eligibility requirements. [FR Doc. 2017–20022 Filed 9–19–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4184–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Health Resources and Services Administration Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Health Center Program Compliance Manual (Compliance Manual) has been developed as a comprehensive, significantly streamlined, and web-based guidance document to assist health centers in understanding and demonstrating compliance with Health Center Program requirements. As such, this guidance document will reduce burden for current and prospective health centers and look-alikes and further strengthen HRSA’s oversight of the Health Center and Health Center Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Programs. It also responds to recommendations contained within the Government Accountability Office report, Health Center Program: Improved Oversight Needed to Ensure Grantee Compliance with Requirements, GAO–12–546, for increased transparency, clarity, and consistency in Health Center Program oversight. The Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) released a draft Compliance Manual on August 23, 2016, for a 90-day public comment period. Individuals and groups submitted over 700 comments regarding the draft Compliance Manual. After thorough review and consideration of all comments received, HRSA made a substantial number of updates to the Compliance Manual to incorporate suggestions and requests for further clarification. HRSA has also posted a summary of comments for each corresponding section and chapter of the Compliance Manual and HRSA’s responses to these comments. HRSA’s ‘‘Summary of Comments and HRSA Responses on the Draft Health Center Program Compliance Manual’’ is available online at https:// bphc.hrsa.gov/programrequirements/ pdf/healthcentercompliancemanualcomments.pdf. The Compliance Manual, which was effective August 28, 2017, is available online at https:// bphc.hrsa.gov/programrequirements/ pdf/healthcentercomplianc sradovich on DSKBBY8HB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 Sep 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 For questions regarding this notice, contact HRSA/BPHC at https://www.hrsa.gov/ about/contact/bphc.aspx. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Notice of Availability of Final Policy Document SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Orders 12866, 13563 and 13771 Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 is supplemental to and reaffirms the principles, structures, and definitions governing regulatory review as established in Executive Order 12866, emphasizing the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. Section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 defines a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ as an action that is likely to result in a rule: (1) Having an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more in any 1 year, or adversely and materially affecting a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or Tribal governments or communities (also referred to as ‘‘economically significant’’); (2) creating a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfering with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) materially altering the budgetary impacts of entitlement grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) raising novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President’s priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order. A regulatory impact analysis (RIA) must be prepared for major rules with economically significant effects ($100 million or more in any 1 year), and a ‘‘significant’’ regulatory action is subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43993 Executive Order 13771, entitled Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, was issued on January 30, 2017. Section 2(a) of Executive Order 13771 requires an agency, unless prohibited by law, to identify at least two existing regulations to be repealed when the agency publicly proposes for notice and comment or otherwise promulgates a new regulation. In furtherance of this requirement, section 2(c) of Executive Order 13771 requires that the new incremental costs associated with new regulations shall, to the extent permitted by law, be offset by the elimination of existing costs associated with at least two prior regulations. OMB’s interim guidance issued on February 2, 2017, explains that for fiscal year 2017 the above requirements only apply to each new ‘‘significant regulatory action that imposes costs.’’ It has been determined that the Compliance Manual is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action that imposes costs’’ and thus does not trigger the above requirements of Executive Order 12866 or of Executive Order 13771. Background HRSA provides grants to eligible applicants under section 330(e), (g), (h), and/or (i) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 254b), to support the delivery of preventive and primary care services to medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations. Nearly 1,400 Health Center Program-funded health centers operate approximately 10,400 service delivery sites that provide care to nearly 26 million patients in every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. Note that for the purposes of the Compliance Manual, the term ‘‘health center’’ refers to entities that receive a federal award under section 330 of the PHS Act, as amended, grant subrecipients, and organizations designated as look-alikes, unless otherwise stated within the Compliance Manual. Look-alikes, as described in Sections 1861(aa)(4)(B) and 1905(l)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395x(aa)(4)(B) and 42 U.S.C. 1396d(l)(2)(B)(iii)), do not receive a Health Center Program award but must meet the Health Center Program statutory and regulatory requirements. Organizations designated as look-alikes are eligible for payment as a Federally Qualified Health Center under Medicare, Medicaid, and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), as well as participation in the 340B Drug Pricing Program and the National Health Service Corps Program.
