OMB Control Number: 2120-XXXX

Title: FAA Customer Service Surveys

Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this generic collection.

Type of Review: New generic information collection.

Background: Executive Order 12862 requires that Federal agencies provide the highest quality service to our customers by identifying them and determining their opinions on our existing services and products. The surveys covered in this clearance will provide the FAA with a means to gather this data directly from our customers. The information obtained will be used to assist in evaluating service delivery and processes. The responses will be voluntary and will not involve information that is required by regulations. There will be no direct cost to the respondents other than their time. The FAA plans to provide an electronic means for responding to the majority of the surveys via the World Wide Web.

Respondents: State and local governments, aviation industry organizations, and the general public.

Frequency: Information will be collected on occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: An average burden of 15 minutes per response.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: We estimate that FAA will survey approximately 55,000 respondents annually during the next three years. Therefore, the estimated total annual burden is 13,750 hours.


Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. Comments should be addressed to the attention of the Desk Officer, Department of Transportation/FAA, and sent via electronic mail to, or faxed to (202) 395-6974, or mailed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Docket Library, Room 10102, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503.

Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
