Prevention Research Center Information System—Extension—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description:
In spring 2003, CDC published Program Announcement #04003 (FY 2003-2009) for the Prevention Research Centers Program. The Program Announcement introduced a set of performance indicators developed collaboratively with the Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) and other stakeholders and are consistent with federal requirements that all agencies, in response to the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, prepare performance plans and collect program-specific performance measures. Currently, CDC provides funding to 33 PRCs selected through competitive peer review process and managed as CDC cooperative agreements. Awards are made for five (5) years and may be renewed through a competitive process. PRCs are housed in a school of public health, medicine, or osteopathy and conduct health promotion and disease prevention research using a community-based participatory approach.
In accordance with the current OMB approval for the Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Information System, (OMB 0920-0650, expiration November 30, 2007), this requested 3 year extension will continue the data collection as approved. The Information System (IS) is a web-based, password protected technical reporting system that allows the accurate, uniform, and complete collection of PRC information using the Internet. The IS allows CDC to monitor and report on PRC activities efficiently and effectively. Data reported to CDC through the PRC IS are used to identify training and technical assistance needs, monitor compliance with cooperative agreement requirements, evaluate the progress made in achieving center-specific goals and objectives, and obtain information needed to describe the impact and effectiveness of the overall program as needed to respond to Congressional and other inquiries regarding the PRC Program. The annual report and record keeping burden is essentially the same as the currently approved Information Collection.
There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey. Start Printed Page 2696
