Download as PDF jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 139 / Friday, July 19, 2019 / Notices and principal subdivision names that vary from those approved by the BGN. The geopolitical entities included in ISO 3166 are those that are recognized by the United Nations. Therefore, GENC is the U.S. Government implementation of ISO 3166 that conforms to BGN and U.S. Government recognition policy and will enable FDA to be in conformance with U.S. Government naming and recognition policies. The GENC Standard is specified by the combination of a stable information design document and information content consisting of dynamically managed entries in the GENC Registry. In accordance with OMB Circular A– 119 (https://obamawhitehouse.archives .gov/omb/circulars_a119_a119fr), Federal Agencies are directed to use voluntary consensus standards in lieu of government-unique standards except when inconsistent with law or otherwise impractical. ISO 3166 is the base standard for the profile that is the GENC Standard. The GENC Standard asserts both restrictions to, and extensions of, the ISO 3166 base standard; it is a Class 2 profile in accordance with the provisions of ISO 19106 (https://www.iso.org/standard/ 26011.html). Information regarding the development of the GENC Standard can be found at https://nsgreg.nga.mil/ geopoliticalCode.jsp. Frequently asked questions regarding the content and use of the GENC Standard can be found at https://nsgreg.nga.mil/genc/faq.jsp? register=0. The information content of the GENC Standard is specified with respect to ISO 3166 (Parts 1 and 2). Entries of the GENC Standard are based on either direct reuse of ISO 3166 code elements or a type of variation from that standard (Exclusion, Exception, Extension, or Exigent) based on U.S. government requirements. In the case of Exceptions, the codes do not differ from ISO 3166. Exceptions are based on differences in naming (some politically significant, others simply stylistic) as approved by the BGN, or differences in how the territorial extent of an entity is understood. GENC Extensions introduce entities not included in ISO 3166. Entries from ISO 3166 that are excluded from the GENC Standard may be browsed in the GENC Registry. Infrequently, ISO 3166–1 code elements for a given country name are revised for reasons that are not related to a change in the country name itself. Consequently, a given country name may be assigned differing code element values over time. To enable information systems to easily recognize these occasions, a file specifying country code element correspondences is maintained VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:36 Jul 18, 2019 Jkt 247001 in the NSG-unique Standards Register (https://nsgreg.nga.mil/doc/ view?i=2563). For those occasions when it may be necessary to reference the names of countries that are not included in the content of the GENC Standard because of the disestablishment of those countries before the initial publication of the GENC, the Codes for Historical Country Names information guidance document specifies applicable codes and their corresponding names for use in ‘‘country coding’’ such data (this information can be found at https:// nsgreg.nga.mil/doc/view?i=2565). While FDA currently supports the GENC standard, the FDA Data Standards Catalog will be updated to announce an implementation date of December 17, 2020, for GENC. After receiving comments, the Agency may consider further actions regarding the adoption of the GENC standard and/or its planned implementation date. Dated: July 15, 2019. Lowell J. Schiller, Principal Associate Commissioner for Policy.

Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Parts A and B Unobligated Balances and Rebate Addendum Tables, OMB No. 0906– xxxx–New. Abstract: HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program (RWHAP) funds and coordinates with cities, states and territories, and local clinics/communitybased organizations to deliver efficient and effective HIV care, treatment, and support to low-income people diagnosed with HIV. Nearly two-thirds of RWHAP clients live at or below 100 percent of the federal poverty level and approximately three-quarters of RWHAP clients are racial and ethnic minorities. Since 1990, RWHAP has developed a comprehensive system of HIV service providers who deliver high quality direct health care and support services to over half a million people diagnosed with HIV (more than 50 percent of all people diagnosed with HIV in the United States). Grant recipients funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of RWHAP (codified under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act) are required to report financial data to HRSA at the beginning (Allocations Report) and at the end of each grant budget period (Expenditures Report) using the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs).1 HRSA RWHAP’s Parts A and B collect unobligated balances (UOB) of federal funds and rebate addendum information by subprogram from their grant recipients. Parts A and B use the UOB and rebate addendum financial information to determine formula funding as directed by RWHAP statute. These data were collected when grant recipients submitted their annual Federal Financial Report (FFR SF–425) in hard copy only, and submitted to the individual HHS Operating Divisions (OPDIVs).

    Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 
Parts A and B Unobligated Balances and Rebate Addendum Tables, OMB No. 
0906-xxxx-New.
    Abstract: HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funds and 
coordinates with cities, states and territories, and local clinics/
community-based organizations to deliver efficient and effective HIV 
care, treatment, and support to low-income people diagnosed with HIV. 
Nearly two-thirds of RWHAP clients live at or below 100 percent of the 
federal poverty level and approximately three-quarters of RWHAP clients 
are racial and ethnic minorities. Since 1990, RWHAP has developed a 
comprehensive system of HIV service providers who deliver high quality 
direct health care and support services to over half a million people 
diagnosed with HIV (more than 50 percent of all people diagnosed with 
HIV in the United States).
    Grant recipients funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of RWHAP 
(codified under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act) are 
required to report financial data to HRSA at the beginning (Allocations 
Report) and at the end of each grant budget period (Expenditures 
Report) using the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs).\1\ HRSA RWHAP's 
Parts A and B collect unobligated balances (UOB) of federal funds and 
rebate addendum information by subprogram from their grant recipients. 
Parts A and B use the UOB and rebate addendum financial information to 
determine formula funding as directed by RWHAP statute. These data were 
collected when grant recipients submitted their annual Federal 
Financial Report (FFR SF-425) in hard copy only, and submitted to the 
individual HHS Operating Divisions (OPDIVs). HRSA combined the FFR SF-
425 with the UOB and rebate addendum

tables using a suggested format through the HRSA EHBs. This financial 
information is collected in the same location to streamline the process 
for the grant recipients. The UOB and rebate addendum data tables will 
be collected in the HRSA EHBs below the FFR SF-425 control number and 
the Paperwork Burden Statement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Allocations Report and the Expenditures Report were 
approved by OMB under the 0915-0318 control number.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: RWHAP Part A and Part B 
recipients currently complete the UOB and rebate addendum tables in a 
non-electronic form and upload them as attachments as a part of their 
FFR SF-425 submission. This new process will decrease administrative 
burden, increase transparency, and improve the quality of the data 
submitted to HRSA. UOB and rebate addendum tables are essential for 
allowing HRSA to ensure that RWHAP recipients are meeting the goal of 
accountability to Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general 
public. Information provided in the UOB and rebate addendum tables is 
critical for HRSA, states and territories, local clinics, and 
individual providers to evaluate the effectiveness of these programs.
    Likely Respondents: HRSA RWHAP Parts A and B 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 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. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
