Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Information Collection Requirement Title: Aviation Security Customer Satisfaction Performance Measurement Passenger Survey. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0013. Forms(s): Survey. Affected Public: Travelling public. Abstract: OMB Control Number 1652– 0013; Aviation Security Customer Satisfaction Performance Measurement Passenger Survey. TSA, with OMB’s approval, has conducted surveys of passengers and now seeks approval to continue this effort. TSA plans to conduct passenger surveys at airports nationwide. The surveys will be administered using an intercept methodology. The intercept methodology uses TSA personnel who are not in uniform to hand deliver paper survey forms to passengers immediately following the passenger’s experience with TSA’s checkpoint security functions. Passengers are invited, though not required, to complete and return the survey using either an online portal or by responding in writing to the survey questions on the customer satisfaction card and depositing the card in a drop-box at the airport or using U.S. mail; TSA personnel decide the method by which passengers will be asked to complete and return the survey. TSA uses the intercept methodology to randomly select passengers to complete the survey in an effort to gain survey data representative of all passenger demographics, including passengers who— • Travel on weekdays or weekends; • Travel in the morning, mid-day, or evening; VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:02 Jul 31, 2013 Jkt 229001 • Pass through each of the different security screening locations in the airport; • Are subject to more intensive screening of their baggage or person; and • Experience different volume conditions and wait times as they proceed through the security checkpoints. The survey includes 10 to 15 questions. Each question promotes a quality response so that TSA can identify areas in need of improvement. All questions concern aspects of the passenger’s security screening experience. TSA intends to collect this information in order to continue to assess customer satisfaction in an effort to more efficiently manage its security screening performance at airports. In its future surveys, TSA wishes to obtain more detailed, airport-specific data that TSA can use to enhance customer experiences and its performance at specific airports. In order to gain more detailed information regarding customer experiences, TSA is submitting 84 questions to OMB for approval. Eightyone questions have been previously approved by OMB and three questions are being submitted to OMB for the first time. The new questions will allow TSA to better measure customer satisfaction with Risk-Based Security, an effort to focus TSA resources and improve the passenger experience at security checkpoints by applying new intelligence-driven, risk-based screening procedures and enhancing the use of technology. Since there are some passengers who present a low level of risk, Risk-Based Security allows TSA to focus resources on higher-risk or unknown travelers, thereby increasing the level of security. Each survey question seeks to gain information regarding one of the following categories: • Confidence in Personnel • Confidence in Screening Equipment • Confidence in Security Procedures • Convenience of Divesting • Experience at Checkpoint • Satisfaction with Wait Time • Separation from Belongings • Separation from Others in Party • Stress Level TSA personnel use random procedures to select passengers to voluntarily participate in the survey until TSA obtains the desired sample size. The samples may be selected with one randomly selected time and location or span multiple times and locations. Designated TSA personnel at each airport may choose one or more of the PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46595 following sample methods when planning the survey, which include a business card that directs customers to an online portal, a customer satisfaction card with survey questions on the card, or a customer satisfaction card with survey questions on the card and a link to the online portal. All responses are voluntary and there is no burden on passengers who choose not to respond. Number of Respondents: 25,000. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 2083.3 hours annually.
