National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).


Notice of proposed extension request.


NARA proposes to request an extension from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) of approval to use a voluntary survey of visitors to our downtown facility in Washington, DC. We use the American Association of State and Local History (AASLH) customer survey to ask a random sample of visitors to the National Archives Museum whether the Museum is successfully achieving its goals, and to help us determine if we need to make any modifications to our services. The survey takes 12 minutes. We invite you to comment on certain aspects of this proposed information collection.


We must receive written comments on or before August 14, 2017.


Send comments to Paperwork Reduction Act Comments (MP), Room 4100; National Archives and Records Administration; 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740-6001, or email them to
