Proposed Project: Performance Report for Grants and Cooperative Agreements (OMB No. 0915-0061)—Revision
The HRSA Bureau of Health Professions (BHPr) Performance Report for Grants and Cooperative Agreements is used to report grantee activities for Title VII and VIII health professions and nursing education and training programs. The reporting system measures the grantee's success in meeting (1) the objectives of the grant project, and (2) the cross-cutting outcomes developed for the Bureau of Health Professions' Title VII and VIII health professions and nursing education and training programs. The reporting system has two parts: Part I of the performance report is designed to collect information on activities specific to a given program and Part II, the core performance measures, collects data on overall project performance related to the Bureau's strategic goals, objectives, outcomes, and indicators. Progress will be measured based on the objectives of the grant project, and outcome measures and indicators developed by the Bureau to meet requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA).
The Bureau will be making minor changes to the previously approved information collection request. First, a couple of tables in Parts I and II have been simplified to eliminate collecting multiple race combinations for two or more races. And second, a new measure will be added to collect outcome data on the State Primary Care Offices (PCOs) program.
The estimated annual burden is as follows:Start Printed Page 37816
