AGENCY: ACTION: As part of a Federal Government-wide effort to streamline the process to seek feedback from the public on service delivery, Peace Corps has submitted a Generic Information Collection Request (Generic ICR): ‘‘Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery ’’ to OMB for approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et. seq.).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Abstract: The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean 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 Agency 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 that address: the target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. The Peace Corps received no comments in response to the 60-day PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31383 notice published in the Federal Register of December 22, 2010 (75 FR 80542).

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend the Exchange’s Fee Schedule to eliminate the Market Access Provider Subsidy in Section VII of the Fee Schedule. While changes to the Fee Schedule pursuant to this proposal are effective upon filing, the Exchange has designated these changes to be operative on June 1, 2011. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at http://nasdaqtrader.com/ micro.aspx?id=PHLXfilings, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 1. Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to eliminate Section VII, entitled ‘‘Market Access Provider Subsidy’’ from the Fee Schedule. The Market Access Provider Subsidy is a per contract fee payable by the Exchange to Eligible Market Access Providers 3 for Eligible Contracts 4 submitted by MAPs for execution on the Exchange. The Exchange does not desire to incentivize MAPs going forward by offering a subsidy. In 2007, the Exchange began to offer MAPs a subsidy to route additional 3 A Market Access Provider is an Exchange member organization that offers customers automated order routing systems and electronic market access to U.S. options markets (‘‘Market Access Providers’’ or ‘‘MAPs’’). 4 ‘‘Eligible Contracts’’ means contracts that result from the execution on the Exchange of: (1) Equity option orders (other than crosses) sent electronically to an Eligible MAP (and routed to the Exchange electronically by the Eligible MAP) by its customers; and (2) MAP Routing Orders (other than crosses) sent electronically by the Eligible MAP.

The Exchange pays a per-contract MAP Subsidy to any Exchange member organization that qualifies as a MAP (an ‘‘Eligible MAP’’) 6 and elects to participate by submitting any application(s) and/or form(s) required by the Exchange, and complying with other conditions.7 The Exchange currently pays a monthly subsidy of $0.10 (the ‘‘Subsidy Rate’’) to Eligible MAPs for each Eligible Contract executed in the immediately preceding calendar month above the particular Eligible MAP’s Baseline Order Flow.8 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 56274 (August 16, 2007), 72 FR 48720 (August 24, 2007) (SR–Phlx–2007–54). 6 Eligible MAP’’ means a MAP eligible for the Market Access Provider Subsidy and who is required to: (1) Submit any required Exchange applications and/or forms for Exchange approval to participate as an Eligible MAP; (2) provide to its customers systems that enable the electronic routing of equity option orders to all of the U.S. options exchanges, including Phlx; (3) provide to its customers current consolidated market data from the U.S. options exchanges; (4) interface with Phlx’s API to access the Exchange’s electronic options trading platform, PHLX XL II; (5) offer to its customers a customized interface and routing functionality (including sweep function described below) such that: (A) Phlx will be the default destination for all equity option orders (whether marketable or not), provided that in the case of marketable orders, Phlx is at the national best bid or offer (‘‘NBBO’’) on the appropriate side of the market (i.e., the contra-side of the order that is routed to Phlx), regardless of size or time, up to Phlx’s disseminated size; and (B) the MAP’s option order routing functionality incorporates a feature that causes orders at a specified price to be routed simultaneously to multiple exchanges with a single click (a ‘‘sweep function’’), which is configured to route all such orders (or, if such orders are for a size larger than the size disseminated by the Phlx on the opposite side of the market, at least the portion of the order that corresponds to Phlx’s disseminated size) to Phlx as the default destination for execution for a size up to the full size quoted on the Phlx, provided that, in the case of marketable orders, the Phlx disseminated price on the appropriate side of the market is at the NBBO; (6) configure its own option order routing functionality such that it is configured as described in sub-paragraph 5(A) and (B) above, with respect to all equity option orders as to which the MAP has discretion as to routing (‘‘MAP Routing Orders’’); (7) ensure that the customized functionality described in subparagraphs (5) and (6) above permits users submitting option orders through such system(s) to manually override the Phlx as the default destination on an order-by-order basis; and (8) enter into and maintain an agreement with the Exchange to function as an Eligible MAP and be in compliance with all terms thereof. 7 The MAP must enter into a Priority Routing Covenant with the Exchange which is an agreement with Phlx to refrain from entering into arrangements with other exchanges or execution venues where such exchange or execution venue will have the same routing position as, or priority over, Phlx as the default destination for certain option orders, unless Phlx otherwise consents. 8 ‘‘Baseline Order Flow’’ for an Eligible MAP means the higher of: (1) 500,000 contracts, or (2) the E:\FR\FM\31MYN1.SGM 31MYN1
