Proposed Project: Web-Based Semi Annual Report (SAR) (OMB No. 0915-0262): Revision
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC), plans to collect the annual reporting requirements for the primary care grantees funded by BPHC using the web-based Semi Annual Report (SAR). The SAR includes reporting requirements for grantees of the following primary care programs: State Primary Care Associations and State Primary Care Offices. Authorizing legislation is found in Section 330(m) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended.
BPHC collects data on its programs to ensure compliance with legislative mandates and to report to Congress and policy makers on program accomplishments. To meet these objectives, BPHC requires a core set of information collected semi-annually that is appropriate for monitoring and evaluating performance and reporting on annual trends. The SAR has been a valuable instrument for collecting this information from grantees. The SAR provides data on services, characteristics of populations, leveraged funds, and services that fall within the scope of the grant.
