SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The International Trade Administration’s U.S. Commercial Service (CS) is seeking approval to revise this information collection by combining with other collections, OMB control numbers: 0625–0065, 0625– 0130, 0625–0143, 0625–0151, 0625– 0215, 0625–0220, 0625–0228, and 0625– 0238. These collections include all client intake, events/activities and export success forms. This comprehensive information collection will cover all aspects of an international organization’s life-cycle with CS. CS is mandated by Congress to help U.S. organizations, particularly but not limited to small and medium-sized organizations, export their products and services to global markets. As part of its mission, the CS provides market entry/ expansion services and trade events to U.S. organizations. The International Client Life-cycle Multi-Purpose Forms, previously titled Export Assistance Center Internet Web Site Forms, are needed to collect information to enable U.S. organizations to efficiently and effectively enhance their ability to determine which international organizations are most suited for their exporting expansion efforts. The key to effectively and efficiently assisting U.S. organizations export is identifying and verifying potential international buyers of U.S. goods and services. 1. Create an all inclusive and flexible client life-cycle information collection. The proposed categories of questions are: Contact information, organization information, organization type, agreements and confirmations, objectives, products and services, exporting experience, marketing, events and activities, trade fair/show, certified trade missions, trade missions, advocacy, environment, and education. CS asks only those questions that provide the required information to PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 assist CS in fulfilling a client’s objective for a requested service and/or event/ activity. 2. Provide CS with the flexibility to create forms from the above approved categories and their questions. Client benefits include customizing questions, forms, and services to address their specific needs and objectives. Without this flexibility, CS is impeded from collecting pertinent client information in an effective and efficient manner. Therefore, with increased flexibility, and the ability to immediately ascertain key information, U.S. organizations are productively positioned to achieve their exporting and expansion goals. 3. Reduce client burden through forms’ flexibility and technology. CS seeks increased forms flexibility to ensure that CS asks and captures only the specific information needed for a particular event, thereby continuing to reduce client burdens as CS utilizes prepopulated information for clients who have previously registered with CS. As CS moves forward, we understand the importance and need for strategic planning and integration of future technology and initiatives that relate to CS programs and metrics with the types of information collected from clients to conduct those programs. Additionally, the most important positive impact is the ability to quickly change and ask pertinent questions to assist clients with their exporting needs regarding matchmaking services, organization promotions, trade missions, market research and other trade promotional activities. II. Method of Collection The information will be collected through Export.gov or sent via email and then completed by client electronically. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–0237.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The International Trade Administration's U.S. Commercial Service 
(CS) is seeking approval to revise this information collection by 
combining with other collections, OMB control numbers: 0625-0065, 0625-
0130, 0625-0143, 0625-0151, 0625-0215, 0625-0220, 0625-0228, and 0625-
0238. These collections include all client intake, events/activities 
and export success forms. This comprehensive information collection 
will cover all aspects of an international organization's life-cycle 
with CS.
    CS is mandated by Congress to help U.S. organizations, particularly 
but not limited to small and medium-sized organizations, export their 
products and services to global markets. As part of its mission, the CS 
provides market entry/expansion services and trade events to U.S. 
organizations. The International Client Life-cycle Multi-Purpose Forms, 
previously titled Export Assistance Center Internet Web Site Forms, are 
needed to collect information to enable U.S. organizations to 
efficiently and effectively enhance their ability to determine which 
international organizations are most suited for their exporting 
expansion efforts.
    The key to effectively and efficiently assisting U.S. organizations 
export is identifying and verifying potential international buyers of 
U.S. goods and services.
    1. Create an all inclusive and flexible client life-cycle 
information collection. The proposed categories of questions are: 
Contact information, organization information, organization type, 
agreements and confirmations, objectives, products and services, 
exporting experience, marketing, events and activities, trade fair/
show, certified trade missions, trade missions, advocacy, environment, 
and education. CS asks only those questions that provide the required 
information to assist CS in fulfilling a client's objective for a 
requested service and/or event/activity.
    2. Provide CS with the flexibility to create forms from the above 
approved categories and their questions. Client benefits include 
customizing questions, forms, and services to address their specific 
needs and objectives. Without this flexibility, CS is impeded from 
collecting pertinent client information in an effective and efficient 
manner.
    Therefore, with increased flexibility, and the ability to 
immediately ascertain key information, U.S. organizations are 
productively positioned to achieve their exporting and expansion goals.
    3. Reduce client burden through forms' flexibility and technology. 
CS seeks increased forms flexibility to ensure that CS asks and 
captures only the specific information needed for a particular event, 
thereby continuing to reduce client burdens as CS utilizes pre-
populated information for clients who have previously registered with 
CS. As CS moves forward, we understand the importance and need for 
strategic planning and integration of future technology and initiatives 
that relate to CS programs and metrics with the types of information 
collected from clients to conduct those programs.
    Additionally, the most important positive impact is the ability to 
quickly change and ask pertinent questions to assist clients with their 
exporting needs regarding matchmaking services, organization 
promotions, trade missions, market research and other trade promotional 
activities.

email and then completed by client electronically.
