SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title and OMB Number: Generic Clearance for the DFAS Customer Satisfaction Surveys; OMB Control Number 0730-0003.

Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to determine the kind and quality of services DFAS customers want and expect, as well as their satisfaction with DFAS's existing services. The information collected will be used internally to determine where and to what extent services are satisfactory and to identify areas for improvement. With the cooperation of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), DFAS conducts annual Customer Satisfaction Surveys of various customer populations, expected to number 3 separate annual surveys that involve members of the public, administered in May of each year. The surveys are the Contractor Survey, Retiree and Annuitant Survey and Vendor Pay Survey. In addition, an invitation to complete a brief ad-hoc survey is sent out to anyone who either accesses the MyPay system or interacts with a MyPay representative. Survey respondents under this generic clearance may include contractors, vendors, annuitants, and retired civil service employers. A 60-day Federal Reserve Notice was published on August 2, 2013 (78 FR 46928). No public comments were received.
