Information Collection Request Title: Data Element Survey for the Title X Family Planning Annual Report (FPAR) 2.0
Abstract: The Office of Population Affairs (OPA) within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office of Family Planning (OFP), and this office is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval on a new data collection form (data element survey). This survey is intended to collect feedback from the Title X network regarding feasibility, alignment, and potential workflow issues related to encounter-level data collection and the proposed new FPAR 2.0 data elements (the data dictionary). This voluntary form will occur annually and allow the Title X network to offer feedback and guidance that will inform OPA's development of FPAR 2.0. OPA will solicit feedback from Title X agencies to better inform the 2.0 data dictionary, and proposes to make this data collection form available for up to 3 years so that OPA can accept feedback from the network regarding any version changes that might be made to the dictionary.
Likely Respondents: Title X Grantees, Sub recipients, and Service Sites
