The approved PREP PMAPS information collection includes (1) grantee-, provider-, and program-level measures of PREP program structure and delivery, and (2) measures grantees collect through participant entry and exit surveys. OMB originally approved the information collection in April 2017 and approved a request for a data collection extension in June 2020. Since the extension request, OMB approved nonsubstantive changes to Instruments #3 and Instrument #4 to add, and then revise, a set of measures to capture changes in PREP programming resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The approved data collection instruments include the following: - Instrument #1: Participant entry survey - Instrument #2: Participant exit survey - Instrument #3: Performance reporting system data form – grantees - Instrument #4: Performance reporting system data form – subrecipients The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) embarked on revising the performance measures collected through the PREP participant entry (Instrument #1) and exit surveys (Instrument #2) to (1) ensure that all items directly align with legislation, (2) reduce the number of items that some grantees might consider sensitive, (3) reduce burden, and (4) improve clarity. This review and the resulting updates were completed because some questions added by the last administration either did not reflect the program legislation and/or were not helpful to inform program improvement. Updates include one additional version of the Entry and Exit Surveys (Instruments #1 and #2). Currently, there are three versions. The additional version is for middle school youth in PREIS/TPREP programs. Similar to currently approved versions 1b and 2b, the additional versions (1c and 2c) include a limited number of questions at Entry and Exit to decrease burden due to grantees’ participation in evaluation studies, which often include extensive surveys. In addition, we are proposing to reduce the number of pandemic-related measures in Instruments #3 and #4. The effects of the pandemic on PREP programs have diminished as schools reopened and other pandemic restrictions lessened. As a result, many of the pandemic-related measures are less relevant, so we propose reducing them to only a few measures on the pandemic’s lingering effects. Streamlining this set of measures will also reduce burden of the data collection. An additional factor motivating the revisions to all instruments is that the timing for implementation of the revised performance measures coincides with new cohorts of FY2022 PREP grantees whose awards begin in October 2021.

The proposed changes to the instruments will reduce the burden hours for respondents. In addition, we have revised the burden table in Supporting Statement A to reflect minor changes in the numbers of PREP grantees (from 92 to 101) and subrecipients (from 391 to 400) and the expected corresponding changes to the number of PREP participants. We have also updated the burden table to reflect the latest wage rates based on the National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics from May 2020. The combination of these changes decreases the expected annual burden by 812 hours. We have updated the burden table in Supporting Statement A to reflect these changes.
