Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of this data collection effort is for HRSA contractors to assess the review criteria being used to systematically identify and select RWHAP-funded best practice intervention strategies that demonstrate impact across the HIV care continuum for the online compilation. Assessing the review criteria will allow HRSA to obtain important information from recipients and determine if the intervention strategies shared via the submission form are effective in improving outcomes across the HIV care continuum. Intervention strategies that meet the review criteria verified by HRSA contractors and approved by HRSA program staff through this data collection will be considered best practices and made available through the online compilation for consideration, adaptation, and replication by other HIV programs. In addition, the best practices will support peer exchange to resolve problems impacting HIV care and treatment and eliminating disparities in health outcomes. Likely Respondents: RWHAP recipients and subrecipients that voluntarily submit a best practice strategy or intervention will participate in the data collection. The project team expects that up to 70 recipients and subrecipients will complete the screening form and 50 will screen eligible and complete the full submission form. For the site visits, the project team will strategically select 30 sites from the universe of submitted eligible initiatives, ensuring a range of scores and representativeness of factors such as Census region, proposed strategy/intervention outcome, priority population, and the type of agency or provider implementing the strategy or intervention. 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.

A scorecard identifies activities that participants can implement and assigns points to each activity. Participants that earn a certain number of points annually are recognized by HRSA and the campaign’s national partners. For this information collection request, the proposed change to the Scorecard is the addition of the 2020 date. HRSA also intends to create a new electronic version of the Scorecard for future campaigns that will ultimately reduce the level of burden for E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1 54617 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 197 / Thursday, October 10, 2019 / Notices participants. The electronic version will be designed to be user-friendly, will take less time to complete, and will provide HRSA with data throughout the campaign rather than once a year. Another benefit of an electronic scorecard is that it will eliminate the possibility of human error as information will no longer be manually entered into a database. A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register on July 2, 2019, Vol. 84, 127; pp. 31602–31603. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: There is a substantial imbalance in the U.S. between the number of people whose lives depend on organ transplants (currently more than 113,000) and the annual number of organ donors (approximately 14,000 living and deceased). This imbalance results in about 7,300 waiting list deaths annually. In response to the need for increased donation, HRSA conducts public outreach initiatives to encourage the American public to sign up on state donor registries as future organ donors. The Scorecard motivates and facilitates healthcare organizations’ participation in the campaign, provides the basis for rewarding participants for their accomplishments, and enables HRSA to measure and evaluate campaign process and outcomes. The scorecard also enables HRSA to make data-based decisions and improvements for subsequent campaigns. Likely Respondents: The likely respondents include the following: Hospital development and public relations staff of organ procurement and other donation organizations; hospital staff such as nurses or public relations/ communications professionals; staff at physician’s offices, health clinics, and emergency medical services; and volunteers that work with healthcare organizations on organ donation initiatives. 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.

healthcare organizations nationwide to increase the number of 
registered organ, eye, and tissue donors by hosting education and donor 
registration events in their facilities and communities. A scorecard 
identifies activities that participants can implement and assigns

friendly, will take less time to complete, and will provide HRSA with 
data throughout the campaign rather than once a year. Another benefit 
of an electronic scorecard is that it will eliminate the possibility of 
human error as information will no longer be manually entered into a

    A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register on July 2,

imbalance results in about 7,300 waiting list deaths annually. In 
response to the need for increased donation, HRSA conducts public 
outreach initiatives to encourage the American public to sign up on 
state donor registries as future organ donors.
    The Scorecard motivates and facilitates healthcare organizations'

that work with healthcare organizations on organ donation initiatives.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the
