SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery.

Abstract: The information collection activity will consist of a variety of service delivery-focused activities over the next few years including consumer outreach and information-sharing with stakeholders that are responsive to stakeholders' needs and sensitive to changes in the consumer market. The proposed information collection activity will use similar methods for information collection or otherwise share common elements, and provide a means to gather qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful information on perceptions and opinions. The solicitation of information on delivery of consumer services will address such areas as appropriate messages, effective message delivery methods, and current consumer beliefs, psychographics and social norms that will assist the OCO in developing an outreach and communications campaign designed to change consumer behavior. Since these systems will use similar methods for information collection or otherwise share common elements, the OCO is proposing a generic clearance for this process which will allow the OCO to implement these systems and meet the obligations of the PRA without the delays of the normal clearance process.

Burden statement: The preliminary estimate of aggregate burden for this generic clearance follows. Since the statutory mandate behind the OCO's consumer outreach is new, the estimate of the number of respondents is a projection and could change significantly based on the collection method ultimately used in the research.

Respondents/Affected Entities: 240.

Estimated number of responses: 10 per year.

Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 2,400 responses.

Frequency of collection: once per request.

Average minutes per response: 120 minutes.

Estimated total annual burden hours requested: 4,800 hours.
