Proposed Project

    Monitoring and Reporting System for Chronic Disease Prevention and 
Control Programs--New--National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention 
and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly 
health problems, they are also among the most preventable. The Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works with states, 
territories, tribal organizations, and the District of Columbia 
(collectively referred to as ``state-based'' programs) to develop, 
implement, manage, and evaluate chronic disease prevention and control 
programs. Support and guidance for these programs have been provided 
through cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance, 
administered by CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention 
and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP). Partnerships and collaboration with 
other Federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, local 
communities, public and private sector organizations, and major 
voluntary associations have been critical to the success of these 
    CDC seeks OMB approval for three years to collect progress and 
activity information from health departments funded for four program 
areas: Tobacco control, diabetes prevention and control, Healthy 
Communities, and state-based behavioral risk factor surveillance. 
Information will be collected electronically through a new, electronic 
Management Information System (MIS). Information will be collected on 
each program area's objectives, planning activities, resources, 
partnerships, policy and environmental strategies for preventing or 
controlling chronic diseases, and progress toward meeting goals. The 
new MIS harmonizes the progress reporting framework for all program 
areas and

will support the collection of accurate, reliable, uniform and timely 
information. The MIS will generate a variety of routine and 
customizable reports that will allow each State or program to summarize 
its activities and progress. CDC will also have the capacity to 
generate reports that describe activities across multiple States and/or 
programs. The new MIS will replace two previously approved systems used 
by tobacco control programs (OMB No. 0920-0601, exp. 5/31/2010) and 
diabetes prevention and control programs (OMB No. 0920-0479, exp. 4/30/
2013), which are being phased out.
    CDC will use the information collection to monitor each program's 
progress and use of federal funds, to identify strengths and 
weaknesses, to make adjustments in the type and level of technical 
assistance provided to programs, and to respond to inquiries. 
Respondents will use the information collection to manage and 
coordinate their activities and to improve their efforts to prevent and 
control chronic diseases.
    The initial set of respondents will be health departments in all 50 
states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin 
Islands. All awardees will report on tobacco control, diabetes 
prevention and control, behavioral risk factor surveillance, and 
Healthy Communities, with the exception of the District of Columbia, 
which is not currently participating in Healthy Communities.
    Information will be collected electronically twice per year. There 
are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated 
annualized burden hours are 2,532.
