Start Preamble

AGENCY:

U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

ACTION:

Agency information collection activities: Submission for OMB review; comment request.

SUMMARY:

The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) for review and reinstatement of the Form DOE-887, “DOE Customer Surveys,” OMB Control Number 1901-0302, which expired on December 31, 2012. Form DOE-877 will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration's commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study.
