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 programs, 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 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 grant programs will continue to use the Customer Relationship Management/ Performance database until the new program is redesigned during Fiscal Year 2019. Revision: In Fiscal Year 2018, MBDA has included broad agency announcement grants into the service delivery model for the agency. The client transaction and verification forms in use for the business center program will also be used to collect information about the effectiveness of other grant programs funded by the agency. The forms include a statement regarding MBDA’s intended use by MBDA and transfer of the information collected to other federal agencies for the purpose of conducting research and studies on minority businesses.
