Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), NARA invites the Start Printed Page 9308general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed information collections. The comments and suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (a) Whether the proposed information collections are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of NARA; (b) the accuracy of NARA's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collections; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways, including the use of information technology, to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents; and (e) whether small businesses are affected by these collections. The comments that are submitted will be summarized and included in the NARA request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this notice, NARA is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection:
1. Title: National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) Survey of Customer Satisfaction.
OMB Number: 3095-0042.
Agency Form Number: N/A.
Type of Review: Regular.
Affected Public: Federal, State and local government agencies, veterans, and individuals who write the Military Personnel Records (MPR) facility for information from or copies of official military personnel files.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,000.
Estimated Time per Response: 10 minutes.
Frequency of Response: On occasion (when respondent writes to MPR requesting information from official military personnel files).
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 167 hours.
Abstract: The information collection is prescribed by EO 12862 issued September 11, 1993, which requires Federal agencies to survey their customers concerning customer service. The general purpose of this data collection is to provide MPR management with an ongoing mechanism for monitoring customer satisfaction. In particular, the purpose of the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) Survey of Customer Satisfaction is to (1) determine customer satisfaction with MPR's reference service process, (2) identify areas within the reference service process for improvement, and (3) provide MPR management with customer feedback on the effectiveness of BPR initiatives designed to improve customer service as they are implemented. In addition to supporting the BPR effort, the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) Survey of Customer Satisfaction helps NARA in responding to performance planning and reporting requirements contained in the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA).
2. Title: Presidential Libraries Museum Visitor Survey.
OMB Number: 3095-0066.
Agency Form Number: N/A.
Type of Review: Regular.
Affected Public: Individuals who visit the museums at the Presidential libraries.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 75,000.
Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes.
Frequency of Response: On occasion (when an individual visits a Presidential Library).
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 18,750 hours.
Abstract: The survey is comprised of a set of questions designed to allow for a statistical analysis that will ultimately provide actionable information to NARA. The survey includes questions that measure the visitor's satisfaction in general and with specific aspects of their visit. These questions serve as dependent variables for analytical purposes. Other questions provide attitudinal, behavioral, and demographic data that are used to help understand variation in the satisfaction variables. Using statistical analyses, Harris Interactive will determine the factors that drive the visitor's perceptions of quality and satisfaction with the Library they visited. Additionally, natural groupings of visitors defined by similarity based on these attitudinal, behavioral, and demographic variables can be developed and targeted for outreach purposes. The information collected through this effort will inform program activity, operation, and oversight, and will benefit Library and NARA staff and management in making critical decisions about resources allocation, museum operation and program direction.Start Signature
