Start Preamble


Office of Personnel Management.




In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget a request for review of a revised information collection. The agency Start Printed Page 13926Generic Survey Plan will be revised to be an umbrella for all OPM customer satisfaction surveys used to measure satisfaction with OPM programs and services. This Plan satisfies the requirements of Executive Order 12862 and the guidelines set forth in OMB's “Resource Manual for Customer Surveys”.

Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of OPM, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The surveys completed will include web-based (electronic), paper-based, telephone and focus groups. We estimate approximately 1,000,000 surveys will be completed annually. The time estimate varies from 3 minutes to 2 hours to complete with the average being 15 minutes. The annual estimated burden is 250,000 hours.
