Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below.

The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help:

1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;

2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and

4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, Start Printed Page 26117 e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

5. Assess information collection costs.

Proposed Project

Annual Reporting of the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) Program: CE19-1902 Cooperative Agreement—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

OMB approval is requested for three years for this new collection. The RPE Program, which provides funding to health departments in all 50 states, the District of Columbia (DC), Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. This ICR will collect information related to implementation and outcomes annually from recipients of the new funding opportunity CDC-RFA-CE19-1902: Rape Prevention and Education (RPE): Using The Best Available Evidence for Sexual Violence Prevention cooperative agreement. This new RPE funding opportunity differs greatly from previous funding opportunities provided by CDC through the RPE Program. Specifically, program activities differ from the previous funding cycles, and the program will be collecting information for the first time on recipient outcomes.

RPE Program recipients or designated delegates will submit data annually into the online data system, DVP Partners Portal. Recipients will monitor and report progress on their goals, objectives, and activities, as well as relevant information on the implementation of their prevention strategies, outcomes, evaluation, and state action plan.

Collecting information about the implementation and outcomes of CE19-1902 cooperative agreement through the online data system, DVP Partners Portal, is crucial to informing Sexual Violence prevention nationally; enhancing accountability of the use of federal funds; providing timely program reports and responses to information requests, such as Congressional requests mandated by the authorizing legislation; improving real-time communications between CDC and RPE recipients; and strengthening CDC's capacity to provide responsive data-driven technical assistance and to monitor and evaluate recipients' progress and performance. The only cost to respondents will be time spent responding to the survey/screener. The total estimated annualized burden hours is 440.
