Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to support the Military OneSource Case Management System contract mandated Quality Control Plan (QCP) which requires a process to capture participant quality satisfaction feedback. Key quality factors include but are not limited to appropriateness, effectiveness, successful outcomes and any or all of the dimensions of quality such as accessibility, availability, efficiency, continuity, safety, timeliness and respectfulness. Council on Accreditation (COA) or URAC guidance for sample size and confidence levels shall be followed at a minimum.

Affected Public: Individuals or households; Federal Government.

Annual Burden Hours: 1,000.

Number of Respondents: 10,000.

Responses per Respondent: 1.

Average Burden per Response: 6 minutes.

Frequency: On occasion.

Respondents are military service members and their families who accessed Military OneSource for support for an inquiry or issue and agreed to provide satisfaction feedback. Respondent feedback is captured using two methods: An outreach call or via an email containing a link to the feedback Web site. When outreach calls are made, respondents are interviewed and a staff person enters those responses into a feedback form. Respondents may also elect to complete feedback via an electronic form, which is emailed to the respondent. All respondents who contact Military OneSource are asked to provide feedback about their Military OneSource experience, though on average only about 1-2% of respondents provide feedback.
