SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) leads Federal agencies in shaping human resources management systems to effectively recruit, develop, manage and retain a high quality and diverse workforce. Program services evaluation surveys are valuable tools to gather information from our customers so we can design and implement new ways to improve our programs to meet their needs. This collection request includes surveys that we currently use or plan to use during the next three years to measure our ability to deliver program services to meet our customer needs. The survey instruments include direct mail, telephone contact, focus groups and web exit surveys. Our customers include the general public, Federal benefit recipients, Federal agencies and Federal employees. We estimate 4,310 program services evaluation surveys will be completed in the next 3 years. The time estimate varies from 1 minute to 40 minutes to complete. The estimated burden is 1,126 hours.
