Title of the Collection: Family Planning Annual Report 2.0.
Type of Collection: New.
Abstract: The Office of Population Affairs (OPA), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, seeks approval for a new encounter level data collection for the Family Planning Annual Report (FPAR). Currently collected in aggregate under OMB No. 0990-0221, this new data collection, “FPAR 2.0”, will collect information at the encounter level and build on the existing data collection and reporting system. This annual reporting requirement is for competitively awarded grants authorized and funded by the Title X Family Planning Program.
Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The Office of Population Affairs' (OPA) Title X Family Planning Program is the only federal grant program dedicated solely to providing comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services.
Annual submission of the FPAR is required of all Title X family planning services grantees for purposes of monitoring and reporting program performance (45 CFR part 74 and 45 CFR part 92). The FPAR is the only source of annual, uniform reporting by all grantees funded under Section 1001 of the Title X Public Health Service Act. Similar to the previous FPAR, FPAR 2.0 will provide consistent, national-level data on the Title X Family Planning program and its users. OPA will be able to assemble and analyze comparable and relevant program data to answer questions about the characteristics of the population served, the provision and use of services, and the impact of the program on certain family planning outcomes. FPAR 2.0 will also collect a standard set of data elements pertaining to users and encounters, such as user demographics, service delivery, family planning intentions and methods, and other indicators, which allow for comparisons over time at all levels of the program (e.g., national, regional, state, and grantee). Encounter level data collected through FPAR 2.0 will ultimately improve the quality of data reported to OPA and reduce reporting burden by grantees. Additionally, the more granular data collected with FPAR 2.0 will help contribute to a learning healthcare environment by greatly expanding the options for data analysis and reporting—for example, through interactive data dashboards and visualizations, customized tabulations and reports, and application of analytics and statistical analyses on the encounter-level data files.
Information from FPAR 2.0 is important to OPA for many reasons, and will be used to:
(1) Monitor compliance with statutory requirements, regulations, and operational guidance.
(2) Comply with accountability and federal performance requirements for Title X family planning funds.
(3) Guide strategic and financial planning, to monitor performance, to respond to inquiries from policymakers and Congress about the program, and to estimate program impact.
Type of respondent: Annual reporting; respondents are all grantees that receive Title X funding from OPA.
