Animal Health National Program Assessment and Priorities Evaluation Form


Welcome to the ARS Animal Health National Program Assessment Survey. We really appreciate you taking the time to take this survey. ARS conducts National Program Assessments every five-years, so your input is extremely important to our program's accountability. ARS is charged with extending the Nation's scientific knowledge with research projects in agriculture, human nutrition, food safety, natural resources, the environment, and other topics affecting the Nation. Research projects at the ARS are managed within 15 national programs. Animal Health is one of those national programs. Your response to this survey will allow ARS to assess the progress and impact of our animal health research program and provide input for future modifications as we prepare for the next 5-year cycle of research. If you would like more information on our national programs, please visit our web site at http://www.ars.usda.gov/research/programs.htm.

For the purpose of this assessment, impact is defined as research that has or will
significantly influence the field of science (e.g., animal health), create economic opportunities for producers and farmers, or enable action and regulatory agencies to formulate actions, policies and regulations to support American agriculture.

The results of this survey will be used and incorporated in the input phase of our national program planning cycle for National Program 103 Animal Health.

There are 14 questions asking you to rate the impact of the program and identify priorities. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential by our Office of the Chief Information Officer by separating the data from any identifying characteristics. Please note there are required fields on this survey. In order for the results to provide targeted information, the survey will remind you to fill in these fields, if you skip them. At the end of the survey you will have a chance to add comments on matters of concern to you that may not be asked specifically in the survey.


According to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB number. The valid OMB control number for this information collection is 0518-0042. The time required to complete this information is estimated at 15 minutes per response due to the averaging of check boxes and test fields.
