Proposed Project

CDC HIV Prevention Capacity-Building Assistance (CBA) Information Collection, Reporting and Monitoring Forms—New—National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background

CDC is requesting a 3-year clearance for information collection forms to monitor the HIV prevention activities of CBA provider grantees funded by CDC from 2004 to 2009. These forms will be used to collect information that assists in monitoring CBA services and activities. CDC is responsible for monitoring and evaluating HIV prevention activities conducted under these cooperative agreements. This requires that CDC have current information regarding the progress of CBA activities and services supported through these cooperative agreements. Therefore, forms such as the Trimester Interim Progress Report, CBA Notification Form, CBA Completion Form and the CBA Training Events Report are considered a critical component of the monitoring and evaluation process. Since this program will encompass approximately 34 CBA provider organizations, there is a need for a standardized system for reporting individual episodes of CBA delivered by all CBA provider grantees. The collection of data will help CDC discern and refine national goals and objectives in the prevention of HIV. Start Printed Page 59929

CBA providers will be required to submit CBA Trimester Progress Reports (form A). The purpose of the CBA Trimester Progress Report is to describe CBA undertaken during the previous four months. The Trimester Progress Report will be a narrative on the programs' successes and barriers; process and outcome monitoring data; collaborative and cooperative activities with other organizations; and plans for future activities.

To effectively track and monitor all requests for capacity-building assistance, CBA providers will be required to submit a CBA Notification Form (form B) following each contact with a community based organization (CBO) or HIV prevention stakeholder for CBA services. The purpose of this form is to track all requests for services from CBOs, health departments and stakeholders. Requests for CBA from these CBOs and stakeholders are received by CBA providers on an on-going basis.

CBA providers will also be required to submit a CBA Completion Form (form C) following each episode of CBA service delivered to all CBOs and stakeholders. The purpose of this form is to provide feedback and follow-up information to CDC Project Officers on the types of CBA services and quality of services that were delivered to all CBOs by CBA providers. CBA requests from CBOs, health departments, and stakeholders are received by CBA providers on an on-going basis. Information collection will be on-going throughout the duration of the cooperative agreements.

In addition, CBA providers will be required to submit pre-planned CBA training events on a CBA Training Events Report (form D). The CBA Training Events Report is used to disseminate planned capacity building assistance activities delivered by CBA providers, the CDC and other organizations providing training and technical assistance. The calendar is also used as a marketing tool to let CBOs, health departments and stakeholders know what types of technical assistance and training activities are available. There are no costs to respondents other than their participation in the collection of information. The estimated annualized burden is 1,462 hours.
