HRSA routinely conducts OSVs: ◦ Prior to initial look-alike designation. ◦ During first 10 to 14 months of a Newly Funded health center’s project period. ◦ At least once per project/designation period or at least once every three years – generally 18 months into a typical threeyear project/designation period for most health centers. Nearly 400 OSVs were completed in calendar year 2013. Approximately 700 total site visits for all BPHC programs, including over 500 health center OSVs planned for calendar year 2014. Imperative that the team is prepared to conduct thorough, comprehensive review and submit report that is fact based, consistent, can hold up to questioning. Online report will be effective for all OSV and Initial Application Look Alike visits with a start date of March 3rd, 2014.
