Abstract The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) (Pub. L. 103–62) requires agencies to ‘‘improve Federal program effectiveness and public accountability by promoting a new focus on results, service quality, and customer satisfaction.’’ Executive Order 13571 on ‘‘Streamlining Service Delivery and Improving Customer Service’’ requires Federal agencies to establish ‘‘mechanisms to solicit customer feedback on Government services.’’ To fulfill this responsibility, DOI bureaus and offices must collect data from their respective user groups to better understand the needs and desires of the public and to respond accordingly. We use customer satisfaction surveys to help us fulfill our responsibilities to provide excellence in government by PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 proactively consulting with those we serve. This programmatic clearance provides an expedited approval process for DOI bureaus and offices to conduct customer research through external surveys such as questionnaires and comment cards. We will use this information to support all aspects of planning to include buildings, roads, interpretive exhibits, and technical systems. We anticipate that the information obtained could lead to reallocation of resources, revisions in certain agency processes and policies, development of guidance related to customer services, and improvement in the way we serve the American public. The proposed renewal covers all of the organizational units and bureaus in DOI. Bureaus and offices will voluntarily obtain information from their customers and stakeholders. No one survey will cover all the topic areas; rather, these topic areas serve as a guide within which the agencies will develop questions. Topic areas include: (1) Communication/information/ education. Questions will focus on customer satisfaction with aspects of communication/information/products/ education offered. Respondents may be asked for feedback regarding the following attributes of the services provided: (a) Timeliness. (b) Consistency. (c) Ease of Use and Usefulness. (d) Ease of Information Access. (e) Helpfulness and Effectiveness. (f) Quality. (g) Value for fee paid for information/ product/service. (h) Level of engagement in communications process (i.e., whether respondent feels he/she was asked for input and whether or not that input was considered). (2) Disability accessibility. This area will focus on customer satisfaction data related to disability access to DOI buildings, facilities, trails, etc. (3) Management practices. This area covers questions relating to how well customers are satisfied with DOI management practices and processes, what improvements they might make to specific processes, and whether or not they feel specific issues were addressed and reconciled in a timely, courteous, and responsive manner. (4) Resource management. We will ask customers and partners to provide satisfaction data related to DOI’s ability to protect, conserve, provide access to, and preserve natural resources that we manage. (5) Rules, regulations, policies. This area focuses on obtaining feedback from customers regarding fairness, adequacy, E:\FR\FM\12DEN1.SGM 12DEN1
