Start Preamble

Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, call the HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301) 443-1129.

The following request has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995:

Proposed Project: Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) Uniform Data System (OMB No. 0915-0193) Revision

The Uniform Data System (UDS) contains the annual reporting requirements for the cluster of primary care grantees funded by the HRSA. The UDS includes reporting requirements for grantees of the following primary care programs: Community Health Centers, Migrant Health Centers, Health Care for the Homeless, Public Housing Primary Care, and other grantees under section 330. The authorizing statute is section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended.

HRSA collects data in the UDS which is used 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 data collected annually that is appropriate for monitoring and evaluating performance and reporting on annual trends.

The 2008 calendar year UDS will be revised in several ways. Certain UDS tables are being proposed for elimination or modification to streamline data collection and reporting. A limited number of clinical measures will be added for reporting quality of care, health outcomes, and disparities data. In addition, the tool used to report calendar year UDS data will be changed to a Web based tool.

Estimates of annualized reporting burden are as follows:

Type of reportNumber of respondentsResponses per respondentTotal responsesHours per responseTotal burden hours
Universal report1,07611,0765432,280
Grant report1501150182,700
Total1,0761,07634,980

Written comments and recommendations concerning the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of this notice to the desk officer for HRSA, either by e-mail to: OIRA_submission@omb.eop.gov or by fax to 202-395-6974. Please direct all correspondence to the “attention of the desk officer for HRSA.”
