CDC American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) Performance Progress Report—New—Office of the Chief Operating Officer (OCOO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was signed into law on February 17, 2009, Public Law 111-5 (“Recovery Act”). The purpose of this proposed data collection is to collect quarterly performance information for all CDC grants and cooperative agreements funded under the Recovery Act. This will allow CDC to receive reports on recipient performance measures as set forth in the applicable Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and Notice of Grant Award. This requirement is in addition to the reporting requirements of Section 1512 of the Recovery Act, set forth by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the data collection instrument titled “Standard Data Elements for Reports under Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law 111-5 (Grants, Cooperative Agreements and Loans).”
The form CDC proposes to use is a modified Performance Progress Report (SF-PPR) which was successfully piloted by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). CDC intends to use this modified form for quarterly standard reporting of performance measures set forth in the applicable FOA and Notice of Grant Award for all CDC Recovery Act funded grants and cooperative agreements. In addition to allowing for uniformity of information collection, this format will support systematic electronic collection and submission of information. The form contains identifying data elements and a section for a performance narrative.
There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
