Proposed Project

CDC Web site and Communication Channels Usability Evaluation, (OMB no. 0925-0735, exp. 3/31/2010)—Revision—National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Executive Order 12862 directs Federal agencies that provide significant services directly to the public to survey customers to determine the kind and quality of services they need and their level of satisfaction with existing services. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seeks approval to conduct usability surveys on CDC Web sites, social media, mobile-based or other electronic communication channels hosting CDC content on an ongoing basis.

It is important for CDC to ensure that health information, interventions, and programs at CDC are based on sound science, objectivity, and continuous customer input. The CDC Web sites, social media, mobile-based or other electronic communication channels hosting CDC content must be designed to be easy to use, easy to access, and effective providers of health information and resources to our target audiences.

CDC is requesting renewal of our existing 3-year generic clearance, with revisions, in order to carry out its mission. Generic clearance is needed to ensure that CDC can continuously improve its Web sites, social media, mobile-based or other electronic communication channels hosting CDC content though regular surveys developed from these pre-defined questions.

Surveying the CDC Web site, social media, mobile-based or other electronic communication channels hosting CDC content on a regular, ongoing basis will help ensure that users have an effective, efficient, and satisfying experience on any of our Web sites or communication channels, maximizing the health impact of the information and resulting in optimum benefit for public health. The surveys will ensure that all CDC Web sites and electronic communication channels meet customer and partner priorities, build CDC's brand, and contribute to CDC health impact goals.

There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 41,500.
