SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) E–Government Website Customer Satisfaction Survey. OMB Control Number: 1090–0008. Abstract: The proposed renewal of this information collection activity provides a means to consistently assess, benchmark and improve customer satisfaction with Federal government agency websites within the Executive Branch. The Federal Consulting Group of the Department of the Interior serves as the executive agent for this methodology and has partnered with ForeSee Results, Inc., to offer this assessment to Federal government agencies. ForeSee Results is a leader in customer satisfaction and customer experience management on the web. It utilizes the methodology of the most respected, credible, and well-known measure of customer satisfaction in the country, the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). This methodology combines survey data and a patented econometric model to precisely measure the customer satisfaction of website users, identify specific areas for improvement and determine the impact of those improvements on customer satisfaction and future customer behaviors. The ACSI is the only cross-agency methodology for obtaining comparable measures of customer satisfaction with Federal government programs and/or websites. Along with other economic objectives—such as employment and PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44351 growth—the quality of output (goods and services) is a part of measuring living standards. The ACSI’s ultimate purpose is to help improve the quality of goods and services available to American citizens, including those from the Federal government. The ACSI E–Government Website Customer Satisfaction Surveys will be completed subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, Public Law 93–579, December 31, 1974 (5 U.S.C. 522a). The agency information collection will be used solely for the purpose of the survey. The contractor will not be authorized to release any agency information obtained through surveys without first obtaining permission from the Federal Consulting Group and the participating agency. In no case will any new system of records containing privacy information be developed by the Federal Consulting Group, participating agencies, or the contractor collecting the data. In addition, participating Federal agencies may only provide information sufficient to randomly select website visitors as potential survey respondents. There is no other agency or organization able to provide the information that is accessible through the surveying approach used in this information collection. Further, the information will enable Federal agencies to determine customer satisfaction metrics with discrimination capability across variables. Thus, this information collection will assist Federal agencies in improving their customer service in a targeted manner which will make best use of resources to improve service to the public. This survey asks no questions of a sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, religious beliefs, and other matters that are commonly considered private. Current Actions: Proposed renewal of collection of information. Type of Review: Renewal. Affected Public: Individuals and Households; Businesses and Organizations; State, Local or Tribal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: Participation by Federal agencies in the ACSI is expected to vary as agency websites are added or deleted. However, based on historical records, projected average estimates for the next three years are as follows: Average Expected Annual Number of Customer Satisfaction Surveys: 275. Respondents: 1,375,000. Annual responses: 1,375,000. Frequency of Response: Once per survey. Average minutes per response: 2.5. Burden hours: 57,292 hours. E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM 25JYN1
