Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Recipients must execute subawards with each HCC within 90 calendar days from the start of each fiscal year (July 1). SPPR will evaluate data from the first fiscal year and determine if the 90-day benchmark needs to be adjusted for subsequent years.
ASPR will use this measure as a benchmark to assess achievement of preparedness goals for the health care system. Pursuant to Section 319C-1(g)(5) of the Public Health Service Act, failure to achieve this benchmark for one of two consecutive years may result in withholding of 10% of funding amounts and increased withholding amounts in subsequent years in this benchmark is not met.
This PM provides insight into fiscal preparedness and the ability of recipients to execute subawards to HCCs in a timely manner. How quickly HCCs can begin to execute programming and contracts may impact their ability to perform on an annual basis. The sooner implementing groups have the subaward in place, the sooner they are able to begin work and access HPP funding, and the greater their likelihood is of having sufficient time to complete subaward activities.
Recipients should report the date each subaward was executed with each HCC into the end-of-year performance measure module in PERFORMS (during the specified time period for end-of-year reporting). SPPR will calculate duration from start of the fiscal year (July 1).
