Background

As part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Department of Energy sought comments from the general public and other Federal agencies regarding this collection of information through its June 9, 2000 notice in the Federal Register (65 FR 36679). No comments were received during this 60-day review period. The Department now seeks approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance of its surveys designed for the IAC effort.

Data will be collected from IAC participants concerning energy, waste, productivity and cost savings generated through their participation in IAC assessments or through their use of technical information provided by IAC-sponsored web-sites. Data will be collected from clients, program alumni, and IAC web-users using either electronic, web-based surveys or telephone interviews. Participation is voluntary. The data will provide input for monitoring performance and satisfaction of IAC participants.

Statutory Authority: Section 3507(a) and 3506(c) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. No. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
