Proposed Collection: Title: Generic Clearance for Surveys of Customers and Other Partners, 0925-0458, Expiration Date 12/31/2013, Type of Submission: REINSTATEMENT WITHOUT CHANGE, National Institutes of Health Clinical Center (CC), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The information collected in these surveys will be used by Clinical Center personnel: (1) To evaluate the perceptions of various Clinical Center customers and other partners of Clinical Center services; (2) to assist with the design of modifications of these services, based on customer input; (3) to develop new services, based on customer need; (4) to evaluate the perceptions of various Clinical Center customers and other partners of implemented service modifications, and (5) for hospital accreditation. These surveys are voluntary and necessary for the proper performance of Clinical Center functions and will almost certainly lead to quality improvement activities that will enhance and/or streamline the Clinical Center's operations. The major mechanisms by which the Clinical Center will request customer input is through surveys and focus groups. The surveys will be tailored specifically to each class of customer and to that class of customer's needs. Surveys will either be collected as written documents, as faxed documents, mailed electronically or collected via the web or by telephone from customers. Information gathered from these surveys of Clinical Center customers and other partners will be presented to, and used directly by, Clinical Center management to enhance the services and operations of our organization.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 4,900.Start Printed Page 3834
