is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed 
collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other

within 60 days of this notice.

Proposed Project

    CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) (OMB No. 0920-
0909, exp. 11/30/2014)--Revision--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Evidence from efficacy and effectiveness research studies has shown 
that lifestyle modifications leading to weight loss and increased 
physical activity can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in individuals 
with prediabetes or those at high risk of developing diabetes. To 
translate these research findings into practice, section 399V-3 of 
Public Law 111-148, directed Centers for Disease Control ``to determine 
eligibility of entities to deliver community-based type 2 diabetes 
prevention services,'' monitor and evaluate the services, and provide 
technical assistance. To this end, CDC's Division of Diabetes 
Translation (DDT) established and administers the Diabetes Prevention 
Recognition Program (DPRP), which recognizes organizations that deliver 
diabetes prevention programs according to requirements set forth in the 
``Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recognition Program 
Standards and Operating Procedures'' (DPRP Standards). Two levels of 
recognition are provided: Pending recognition, for new applicants that 
have submitted an application and meet eligibility criteria defined by 
the DPRP Standards, and Full recognition, for programs that have 
demonstrated effectiveness according to DPRP standards. DDT maintains a 
public registry of these organizations, which can be used by people at 
high risk of type 2 diabetes, their health care providers, and health 
payers to locate organizations that offer DPRP-recognized diabetes 
prevention programs or are in the processing of obtaining recognition 
through the DPRP.
    In 2011, CDC received Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
approval to collect information needed to administer the DPRP (CDC 
Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program, OMB No. 0920-0909, exp. 11/30/
2014). Two types of information are collected from organizations 
seeking DPRP recognition: Application data and evaluation data. The 
one-time application form can be completed on-line at any time. In 
addition, organizations submit de-identified process and outcome 
evaluation data to CDC electronically twice per year. The due dates for 
these submissions are determined by the date of the organization's 
initial application. CDC uses the process and outcome data to monitor 
and evaluate program effectiveness and to provide targeted technical 
assistance to applicants.
    CDC requests an additional three years of OMB approval to continue 
collecting the information needed to administer the DPRP. Based on 
experience with the DPRP from 2011-2014, and feedback from applicant 
organizations and internal and external partners, CDC plans to revise 
the DPRP Standards and the associated information collection. A key 
change relates to incorporation of a new mode of service delivery. 
Because future programs will be allowed to deliver lifestyle programs 
in a virtual or electronic mode, DPRP requirements for hour-long 
sessions and written materials for participants have been dropped. A 
new program mode data element (in-person, virtual, other) will be added 
to the DPRP application form to facilitate the identification and 
evaluation of programs, by mode. This information will also be 
published in the DPRP registry. Additionally, CDC plans to initiate the 
following changes in the data elements collected: (1) Add fields, if 
applicable, for contact information for an additional organizational 
contact and data preparer to the application form. These additional 
organization contacts are necessary to facilitate communication in 
light of a large volume of turnover in recognized organizations and to 
enable DPRP staff to provide technical assistance directly to the data 
preparer. (2) Add Participant State [of residence] to the evaluation 
data. This information will allow DPRP to capture the reach of virtual 
programs and allow for reporting by state or region. (3) Change the 
Core Course Code to Class Code. This change will allow DPRP to track 
each one-year lifestyle program when participants move from one 
participant group to another, even when the change involves a different 
mode of delivery. (4) Simplify the codes for Participation Prediabetes 
Determination by reducing the number of required responses from five to 
three. (5) Discontinue the collection of the Location Code, Lifestyle 
Coach ID, Session Type and Session ID.
    Additional changes to the DPRP Standards or DPRP information 
collection may be requested during the period of the Revision request, 
as CDC continues discussions with recognized programs and potential 
applicants and reviews results from ongoing studies.
    During the period of this Revision, CDC estimates receipt of 
approximately 350 DPRP application forms per year. The estimated burden 
per response is one hour. In addition, CDC estimates receipt of semi-
annual evaluation data submissions from 1,200 organizations. Evaluation 
data will be received from a mix of new DPRP applicant organizations as 
well as previous applicants whose performance is being assessed for 
compliance with the DPRP Standards. The estimated burden per response 
is one hour. The estimated burden per response is modest since the 
information requested for DPRP recognition is routinely collected by 
most organizations that deliver lifestyle programs.
    Participation in the DPRP is voluntary, and there are no costs to 
respondents other than their time.
