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. Qualitative feedback is meant to provide useful 

information and insights on perceptions and opinions, but does not 

yield quantitative data that can be generalized to the overall 

population, such as that which results from statistical surveys. 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 Commission 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 non-response bias, the protocols for data collection, and any 

testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to 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 U.S. International Trade Commission received no comments in 

response to the 60-day notice published in the Federal Register of 

December 22, 2010 (75 FR 80542).
