Integrating HIV and Other Prevention Services into Reproductive Health and Other Community Settings On-Line Performance Reporting System—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Integrating HIV and Other Prevention Services into Reproductive Health and Other Community Settings is a training project of the CDC, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, and its grantees, their ten family planning regional training centers. The project requires twice yearly reports from its grantees (each of whom corresponds to one of the ten federal public health regions), on their training-centered intervention activities. CDC guidelines also obligate grantees, under cooperative agreements to provide such performance reporting. To facilitate grantees' compliance with performance reporting requirements, a secure online performance reporting system has been designed to capture training activity information, an indicator of consistent and measurable project progress. Each grantee enters and edits their own training activity data and generates project evaluation documents and semi-annual reports on the Internet. CDC will use the reported data to assess project progress towards achieving its objectives:
1. Measurable information about grantees' prevention training activities.
2. Evaluate prevention training needs, complexity, diversity, and availability.
3. Comparisons between the trained population and the general population of the local area.
4. Evaluate special cultural and regional needs.
5. Describe the complexity of the trained workforce.
6. Grant grantees access to on-line data reports.
Grantees' semi-annual performance reports are due April 30 and October 30 during each year of the 5-year cooperative agreement. Using the on-line system, grantees enter data during each reporting period, then, generate a copy of their training report. Next, by the specified dates, grantees deliver this performance report and their non-structured narrative report, which explains additions, deletions, changes, and redirections of training objectives or activities, to CDC's Procurement and Grants Office.
