Before including any detailed personal information, you should be aware that your comments as submitted, including your personal information, will be available for public review. Abstract of Proposed Collection The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) was established through enactment of the United States Leadership Against HIV/ AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–25), as amended by the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–293) (HIV/AIDS Leadership Act), as amended and reauthorized for a third time by the PEPFAR Extension Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115–305) to support the global response to HIV/AIDS. In order to improve program monitoring, PEPFAR added reporting of expenditures by program area to the current routine reporting of program results for the annual report. Data are collected from implementing partners in countries with PEPFAR programs using a standard tool (DS–4213) via an electronic web-based interface into which users upload data. This expenditures data is analyzed by partner for all PEPFAR program areas. These analyses then feed into partner and program reviews at the country VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 Jan 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 level for monitoring and evaluation on an ongoing basis. Summaries of these data provide key information about program costs under PEPFAR on a global level. Applying expenditure results will improve strategic budgeting, identification of efficient means of delivering services, accuracy in defining program targets, and will inform allocation of resources to ensure the program is accountable and using public funds for maximum impact. Methodology Data will continue to be collected in a web-based interface available to all partners receiving funds under PEPFAR. After implementing Expenditure Reporting since 2012, we learned that implementing partners (IPs) prefer the excel template (DS–4213) based data collection process. The requirements in the excel template have been reduced with IP input to only request critical information. By being able to download a template, prime IPs responsible to complete the submission are more effectively able to collaborate quickly with other key personnel and coordinate with their subrecipients to enter the data for the full amount of PEPFAR funding expended during the prior fiscal year. This approach also proves helpful where internet connectivity is not strong. After completing the excel template, IPs upload the data to an automated system that further checks the data entered for quality and completeness. Automated checks reduce the time needed by IPs to complete the data cleaning process. Aggregate data is available in a central system for analysis.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) was 
established through enactment of the United States Leadership Against 
HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108-25), as 
amended by the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global 
Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization 
Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-293) (HIV/AIDS Leadership Act), as amended and 
reauthorized for a third time by the PEPFAR Extension Act of 2018 (Pub. 
L. 115-305) to support the global response to HIV/AIDS. In order to 
improve program monitoring, PEPFAR added reporting of expenditures by 
program area to the current routine reporting of program results for 
the annual report. Data are collected from implementing partners in 
countries with PEPFAR programs using a standard tool (DS-4213) via an 
electronic web-based interface into which users upload data. This 
expenditures data is analyzed by partner for all PEPFAR program areas. 
These analyses then feed into partner and program reviews at the 
country level for monitoring and evaluation on an ongoing basis. 
Summaries of these data provide key information about program costs 
under PEPFAR on a global level. Applying expenditure results will 
improve strategic budgeting, identification of efficient means of 
delivering services, accuracy in defining program targets, and will 
inform allocation of resources to ensure the program is accountable and 
using public funds for maximum impact.

Methodology

    Data will continue to be collected in a web-based interface 
available to all partners receiving funds under PEPFAR. After 
implementing Expenditure Reporting since 2012, we learned that 
implementing partners (IPs) prefer the excel template (DS-4213) based 
data collection process. The requirements in the excel template have 
been reduced with IP input to only request critical information. By 
being able to download a template, prime IPs responsible to complete 
the submission are more effectively able to collaborate quickly with 
other key personnel and coordinate with their subrecipients to enter 
the data for the full amount of PEPFAR funding expended during the 
prior fiscal year. This approach also proves helpful where internet 
connectivity is not strong. After completing the excel template, IPs 
upload the data to an automated system that further checks the data 
entered for quality and completeness. Automated checks reduce the time 
needed by IPs to complete the data cleaning process. Aggregate data is 
available in a central system for analysis.
