Title: Voluntary Surveys of Program Partners to Implement Executive Order 12862.

OMB No.: 0980-0266.

Description: Under the provisions of the Federal Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting clearance for instruments to implement Executive Order 12862 within ACF. The purpose of the data collection is to obtain customer satisfaction information from those entities who are funded to be our partners in the delivery of services to the American public. ACF partners are those entities that receive funding to deliver services or assistance from ACF programs. Examples of partners are state and local governments, territories, service providers, Indian Tribes and Tribal organizations, grantees, researchers, or other intermediaries serving target populations identified by and funded directly or indirectly by ACF. The surveys will obtain information about how well ACF is meeting the needs of our partners in operating the ACF programs.

Respondents: State, Local, & Tribal Govt. or not-for-profit Organizations.
