Explanation:

The Refugee Microenterprise Development Program

  • Currently, there are twenty two grantees (respondents) in the program and the semi-annual progress, which includes the data and information required, is submitted twice per year.
  • The request covers one form (Form I. attached) which includes eight data points. Based on experience (the information was provided by technical assistance service provider in the past), it takes about two hours per respondent per six months (i.e., four hours per year per grantee (respondent) or 88 hours per year for all respondents) to complete the form.
  • No survey will be undertaken since the collection of this data (information) is part of the implementation process of the project and its collection and reporting does not constitute a separate and additional cost to the grantees (respondents). The cost is covered by the grant the grantee receives. The grantees have Down Home database which captures and stores the data required for reporting. The grantee uploads the semi-annual report in Grant Solution where it is stored. ORR derives the data it requires for reporting and management decision from Grant Solution.

The Refugee Home-Based Child Care Microenterprise Development Group

  • Currently, there are twenty three grantees (respondents) in the program and the semi-annual progress.
  • The request covers one form (Form II. attached) which includes seven data points. It takes about two hours per respondent per six months (i.e., four hours per year grantee (respondent) or 92 hours per year for all respondents) to complete the form.
  • The collection of this data (information) is part of the process and its collection and reporting does not include separate and additional cost to the grantees (respondents). The cost is covered by the grant the grantee receives. The grantees have database which captures and stores the data required for reporting. The grantee uploads the data required in Grant Solution where it is stored. ORR derives the data it requires for reporting and management decision from Grant Solution.
