In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, AoA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

The Fourth National Survey of Older Americans Act Service Recipients builds on earlier national studies and performance measurement tools developed by grantees in the Performance Outcomes Measures Project (POMP). It will include consumer assessment surveys for congregate and home delivered meal nutrition program, transportation, homecare services and other title IIIB services, and National Family Caregiver Support Program. Copies of the POMP instruments can be located at Information collected through the study will be used by AoA to track performance outcome measures, support budget requests; comply with Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) reporting requirements; provide information for OMB's program assessment (PART) process; provide national benchmark information for grantees and inform program improvement and management initiatives.

AoA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: 250 Area Agencies on Aging will have to commit 4 hours each for identifying potential clients to be interviewed for the survey. The estimated burden is 1,000 hours. 6,000 individuals will be surveyed about their usage and satisfaction with services. Each interview takes approximately 30 minutes for an estimated burden of 3,000 hours. Total burden of data collection is 4,000 hours.
