Title: Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Form No.: None. Type of Review: New information collection request. Respondents: State and local agencies, general public and stakeholders, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and suppliers to the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) industry, fleets, owner-operators, state CMV safety agencies, research organizations and contractors, news organizations, safety advocate groups, and other Federal agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 14,100. Estimated Time per Response: Range from 5–30 minutes. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 3,450. Frequency of Collection: Generally, on an annual basis. Abstract: Executive Order 12862 ‘‘Setting Customer Service Standards,’’ direct Federal agencies to provide service to the public that matches or exceeds the best service available in the private sector (58 FR 48257, Sept. 11, 1993). In order to work continuously to ensure that our programs are effective and meet our customers’ needs, FMCSA seeks to obtain OMB approval of a generic clearance to collect qualitative feedback from our customers on our service delivery. The surveys covered in this generic clearance will provide a means for FMCSA to collect this data direct from our customers. The information collected from our customers and stakeholders will help ensure that users have an effective, efficient, and satisfying experience with FMCSA’s programs. 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. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management.

App. 2). Patterns of Safety Violations Task (MCSAC Task 11–01) Section 4133 of SAFETEA–LU allows the Secretary to suspend, amend, or revoke any part of a motor carrier’s registration if the Secretary finds that any individual, while serving as an officer of that motor carrier, engages or has engaged in a pattern or practice of avoiding compliance, or masking or otherwise concealing noncompliance, with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and/or Hazardous Materials Regulations.
