Information Collection Request Title: Standardized Work Plan Form for Use with Applications to the Bureau of Health Workforce Research and Training Grants and Cooperative Agreements, OMB No. 0906–0049— Revision Abstract: HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce requires applicants of training and research grants and cooperative agreements to submit work plans via the Standardized Work Plan (SWP) form. The information in the SWP describes the timeframes and progress required during the grant period of performance to address each of the needs detailed in the Purpose and Need section of the application, as required in the Notice of Funding Opportunity announcement. Applicants use the SWP form when they submit their proposals, and award recipients and Project Officers use the SWP information to assist in monitoring progress once HRSA makes the awards. HRSA proposes a revision to the SWP to include a Quarterly Progress Update (QPU) for award recipients to provide information to HRSA on a quarterly basis on each activity listed in the SWP. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The information collected by the SWP form standardizes and streamlines the data used by HRSA in reviewing applications and monitoring awardees. The form asks applicants to provide a description of the activities or steps the applicant will take to achieve each of the objectives proposed during the entire period of performance. The current standardized format and data submission by applicants increases efficiency in reviewing, awarding, and monitoring each project. This revision to the information collection will incorporate an additional PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Date approval expires 0910–0540 0910–0620 0910–0716 8/31/2023 8/31/2023 8/31/2023 0910–0841 8/31/2023 0910–0891 8/31/2023 0910–0892 8/31/2023 form for participants, the Quarterly Progress Update (QPU). The QPU will be completed via HRSA’s Electronic Handbook (EHB) and will prompt recipients to report on the progress of activities that were submitted using the SWP in the original application. The QPU will automatically populate activities from the recipient’s SWP form on a quarterly basis. For each activity listed in the submitted SWP for any particular quarter within the project period, recipients will select and submit a single selection response for each activity status from a pull-down menu with five options: Activity is on Schedule, Activity is Complete, Timing is off track, Activity will be missed if action is not taken, and Activity cannot be achieved. The information provided will be utilized by the program staff to regularly assess overall progress of program requirements and analyze data in order to monitor award recipient compliance and track progress against proposed targets and goals. The information gathered will allow for an improved and more efficient method for identifying whether projects’ goals are being advanced or achieved, as set forth in 45 CFR 75.342. Program staff will also use information provided over the period of performance to see emerging trends and to assess whether an award recipient requires technical assistance to address challenges that the award recipient may be experiencing with the implementation of the project. Seeking OMB approval comports with the regulatory requirement imposed by 45 CFR 75.206(a), Paperwork clearances. Likely Respondents: Respondents are recipients of HRSA BHW’s research and training grants and cooperative agreements. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested.

    Information Collection Request Title: Standardized Work Plan Form 
for Use with Applications to the Bureau of Health Workforce Research 
and Training Grants and Cooperative Agreements, OMB No. 0906-0049--
Revision
    Abstract: HRSA's Bureau of Health Workforce requires applicants of 
training and research grants and cooperative agreements to submit work 
plans via the Standardized Work Plan (SWP) form.
    The information in the SWP describes the timeframes and progress 
required during the grant period of performance to address each of the 
needs detailed in the Purpose and Need section of the application, as 
required in the Notice of Funding Opportunity announcement.
    Applicants use the SWP form when they submit their proposals, and 
award recipients and Project Officers use the SWP information to assist 
in monitoring progress once HRSA makes the awards. HRSA proposes a 
revision to the SWP to include a Quarterly Progress Update (QPU) for 
award recipients to provide information to HRSA on a quarterly basis on 
each activity listed in the SWP.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The information collected 
by the SWP form standardizes and streamlines the data used by HRSA in 
reviewing applications and monitoring awardees. The form asks 
applicants to provide a description of the activities or steps the 
applicant will take to achieve each of the objectives proposed during 
the entire period of performance. The current standardized format and 
data submission by applicants increases efficiency in reviewing, 
awarding, and monitoring each project.
    This revision to the information collection will incorporate an 
additional form for participants, the Quarterly Progress Update (QPU). 
The QPU will be completed via HRSA's Electronic Handbook (EHB) and will 
prompt recipients to report on the progress of activities that were 
submitted using the SWP in the original application. The QPU will 
automatically populate activities from the recipient's SWP form on a 
quarterly basis. For each activity listed in the submitted SWP for any 
particular quarter within the project period, recipients will select 
and submit a single selection response for each activity status from a 
pull-down menu with five options: Activity is on Schedule, Activity is 
Complete, Timing is off track, Activity will be missed if action is not 
taken, and Activity cannot be achieved. The information provided will 
be utilized by the program staff to regularly assess overall progress 
of program requirements and analyze data in order to monitor award 
recipient compliance and track progress against proposed targets and 
goals. The information gathered will allow for an improved and more 
efficient method for identifying whether projects' goals are being 
advanced or achieved, as set forth in 45 CFR 75.342. Program staff will 
also use information provided over the period of performance to see 
emerging trends and to assess whether an award recipient requires 
technical assistance to address challenges that the award recipient may 
be experiencing with the implementation of the project. Seeking OMB 
approval comports with the regulatory requirement imposed by 45 CFR 
75.206(a), Paperwork clearances.
    Likely Respondents: Respondents are recipients of HRSA BHW's 
research and training grants and cooperative agreements.
    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.

utility of the proposed information collection for the proper 
performance of the agency's functions, (2) the accuracy of the 
estimated burden, (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity 
of the information to be collected, and (4) the use of automated
