As part of a Federal Government-wide effort to streamline the process to seek feedback from the public on service delivery, the agencies are seeking a Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Comments are being solicited on the need for the information; the accuracy of the burden estimate; the quality, practical utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize reporting the burden, including automated collected techniques and uses of other forms of technology.

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

Agency Form Number: DFC-011.

OMB Form Number: Not assigned, new information collection.

Frequency: Once.

Affected Public: Business or other for-profit; not-for-profit institutions; individuals.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Number of Respondents: 200.

Abstract: The information collection activity under this clearance will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner. By qualitative feedback the agency means information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Start Printed Page 32225agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management.

Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs.
