Download as PDF 7763 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 28 / Tuesday, February 11, 2020 / Notices will rely on the results of the impact study, analysis of participation data from the MIS, and results of a staff time study to quantify various PJAC-related costs and benefits. This notice is specific to the following data collection activities: the noncustodial parent participant interviews (these interview topic guides were approved under a previous submission and require content modification which also significantly lowers the collective public burden hours); the staff survey; the staff time study; and the custodial parent interviews. Data collection activities that were previously approved by OMB, following public comment, are the staff data entry on participant baseline information, study MIS to track receipt of services, staff and community partner interview topic guide, the participant interview topic guide, and the participant survey tracking letter. A participant survey has been eliminated from the data collection plans so the OMB-approved participant survey tracking letter will no longer be used. Respondents: Respondents include study participants, child support program staff at the six PJAC demonstration sites, custodial parents associated with study participants, and the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement.

Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program: Allocation and Expenditure Forms, OMB No. 0915–0318—Revision Abstract: HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau administers the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act as amended by the Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009. RWHAP Allocation and Expenditure Reports (A&E Reports), in conjunction with the Consolidated List of Contractors (CLC), allow HRSA to monitor and track the use of grant funds for compliance with program and grants policies and requirements as outlined in the 2009 legislation. To avoid duplication and reduce recipient reporting burden, HRSA created an electronic grantee contract management system (GCMS) that includes data required for various reports, including the Allocations Reports, the CLC, and other HRSA data reports, such as the ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total number of responses per respondent 1 1 1 1 Average burden hours per response 1 .5 1.5 1 Total burden hours 60 10 45 60 RWHAP Services Report. Recipients can access GCMS year-round to upload or manually enter data on their service provider contractors or subrecipients, the RWHAP core medical and support services provided, and their funding amounts. GCMS automatically repopulates the data required for Allocations Reports and other reports. Expenditures Report data are not autopopulated in the GCMS, and are thus still manually reported in the data reporting system. Allocations and Expenditures (A&E) Reports Recipients funded under RWHAP Parts A, B, C, and D are required to report financial data to HRSA at the beginning (Allocations Report) and at the end of their grant budget period (Expenditures Report). The A&E Reports request information recipients already collect, including the use of RWHAP grant funds for core medical and support services and for various program components, such as administration, planning and evaluation, and clinical quality management. The reports are identical in content; however, in the first report recipients document the allocation of their RWHAP grant award at the beginning of their grant budget period, and in the second report recipients document actual expenditures of their RWHAP grant award (including any carryover dollars) at the end of their grant budget period. HRSA is proposing several modifications to the A&E Reports. Recipients would be required to report program income and pharmaceutical rebate amounts in the Expenditures E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1 7764 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 28 / Tuesday, February 11, 2020 / Notices Report in addition to grant award (including any carryover) amounts. This addition allows HRSA to understand the full scope and impact of the RWHAP on state and local levels. Program income and pharmaceutical rebate expenditures should already be tracked by recipients and should not increase reporting burden. RWHAP Parts A and B recipients funded under the Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative (EHE)—a new funding source to implement four key strategies (diagnose, treat, prevent, and respond) to end the HIV epidemic— would be required to report EHE service allocations and corresponding EHE award expenditures in the A&E Reports.1 This addition allows HRSA to track and report progress toward meeting the EHE goals. In addition to these substantive modifications, minor changes are proposed to (1) the layout of the A&E Reports that affects how already required data is reported; (2) align service categories with HRSA Policy Clarification Notice #16–02: RWHAP Services: Eligible Individuals & Allowable Uses of Funds, updated October 22, 2019; and (3) add clarity to language used. Consolidated List of Contractors Recipients funded under RWHAP Parts A and B are required to report information about their service provider contracts or sub awards in the CLC, a report that is generated from data entered through other systems. The CLC form identifies a recipient’s contracts with service providers for the current grant year, the contract amount, the types of services the service provider provided, and the service provider’s status as a minority or faith-based provider. HRSA is not proposing any changes to the CLC. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Accurate allocation, expenditure, and service contract records of the recipients receiving RWHAP funding are critical to the implementation of the RWHAP legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its monitoring and oversight responsibilities. The primary purposes of these forms are to provide information on the number of grant dollars spent on various services and program components and oversee compliance with the intent of Congressional appropriations in a timely manner. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, RWHAP clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected through these reports is critical for HRSA, state, and local grant recipients, and individual providers to evaluate the effectiveness of the RWHAP. The addition of program income, pharmaceutical rebates, and EHE funding to the A&E Reports will allow HRSA the ability to assess progress toward meeting the national goals for ending the HIV epidemic. Likely Respondents: RWHAP Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D 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.

    Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program: 
Allocation and Expenditure Forms, OMB No. 0915-0318--Revision
    Abstract: HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau administers the Ryan White HIV/
AIDS Program (RWHAP) authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health 
Service Act as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension 
Act of 2009. RWHAP Allocation and Expenditure Reports (A&E Reports), in 
conjunction with the Consolidated List of Contractors (CLC), allow HRSA 
to monitor and track the use of grant funds for compliance with program 
and grants policies and requirements as outlined in the 2009 
legislation. To avoid duplication and reduce recipient reporting 
burden, HRSA created an electronic grantee contract management system 
(GCMS) that includes data required for various reports, including the 
Allocations Reports, the CLC, and other HRSA data reports, such as the 
RWHAP Services Report. Recipients can access GCMS year-round to upload 
or manually enter data on their service provider contractors or 
subrecipients, the RWHAP core medical and support services provided, 
and their funding amounts. GCMS automatically repopulates the data 
required for Allocations Reports and other reports. Expenditures Report 
data are not auto-populated in the GCMS, and are thus still manually 
reported in the data reporting system.

Allocations and Expenditures (A&E) Reports

    Recipients funded under RWHAP Parts A, B, C, and D are required to 
report financial data to HRSA at the beginning (Allocations Report) and 
at the end of their grant budget period (Expenditures Report). The A&E 
Reports request information recipients already collect, including the 
use of RWHAP grant funds for core medical and support services and for 
various program components, such as administration, planning and 
evaluation, and clinical quality management. The reports are identical 
in content; however, in the first report recipients document the 
allocation of their RWHAP grant award at the beginning of their grant 
budget period, and in the second report recipients document actual 
expenditures of their RWHAP grant award (including any carryover 
dollars) at the end of their grant budget period.
    HRSA is proposing several modifications to the A&E Reports. 
Recipients would be required to report program income and 
pharmaceutical rebate amounts in the Expenditures

[[Page 7764]]

Report in addition to grant award (including any carryover) amounts. 
This addition allows HRSA to understand the full scope and impact of 
the RWHAP on state and local levels. Program income and pharmaceutical 
rebate expenditures should already be tracked by recipients and should 
not increase reporting burden. RWHAP Parts A and B recipients funded 
under the Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative (EHE)--a new funding 
source to implement four key strategies (diagnose, treat, prevent, and 
respond) to end the HIV epidemic--would be required to report EHE 
service allocations and corresponding EHE award expenditures in the A&E 
Reports.\1\ This addition allows HRSA to track and report progress 
toward meeting the EHE goals.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ OMB granted HRSA approval to collect these data under OMB 
Control Number 0915-0318, ICR Reference Number 201909-0915-004.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition to these substantive modifications, minor changes are 
proposed to (1) the layout of the A&E Reports that affects how already 
required data is reported; (2) align service categories with HRSA 
Policy Clarification Notice #16-02: RWHAP Services: Eligible 
Individuals & Allowable Uses of Funds, updated October 22, 2019; and 
(3) add clarity to language used.

Consolidated List of Contractors

    Recipients funded under RWHAP Parts A and B are required to report 
information about their service provider contracts or sub awards in the 
CLC, a report that is generated from data entered through other 
systems. The CLC form identifies a recipient's contracts with service 
providers for the current grant year, the contract amount, the types of 
services the service provider provided, and the service provider's 
status as a minority or faith-based provider. HRSA is not proposing any 
changes to the CLC.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Accurate allocation, 
expenditure, and service contract records of the recipients receiving 
RWHAP funding are critical to the implementation of the RWHAP 
legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its monitoring 
and oversight responsibilities.
    The primary purposes of these forms are to provide information on 
the number of grant dollars spent on various services and program 
components and oversee compliance with the intent of Congressional 
appropriations in a timely manner. In addition to meeting the goal of 
accountability to Congress, RWHAP clients, advocacy groups, and the 
general public, information collected through these reports is critical 
for HRSA, state, and local grant recipients, and individual providers 
to evaluate the effectiveness of the RWHAP. The addition of program 
income, pharmaceutical rebates, and EHE funding to the A&E Reports will 
allow HRSA the ability to assess progress toward meeting the national 
goals for ending the HIV epidemic.
    Likely Respondents: RWHAP Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D 
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.
