SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for revision and extension of a current information 
collection. NOAA supplies the nation with information, products and 
services that are essential public goods used in public and private 
sectors, science institutions and households around the world. Because 
NOAA's information, products and services are important to both the 
nation as a whole and to the daily lives of U.S. citizens, NOAA's 
Science Advisory Board (SAB) has identified a need for more effective 
two-way communication between its programs and the customers and 
clients it serves. This survey instrument will be used by the National 
Sea Grant Program to obtain information used to assess NOAA's 
accessibility, responsiveness and respect for partners. These 
parameters are three of the seven parameters included in the Kellogg 
Engagement Test, which the SAB recommended NOAA use for assessing 
engagement with constituents. One objective of the survey is to collect 
responses to provide NOAA Sea Grant with information and feedback from 
its constituents that will lead to greater emphasis placed on the needs 
of NOAA Sea Grant partners, techniques to improve the products and 
services, and general improvement in the accessibility and 
responsiveness of NOAA Sea Grant to constituents.
    Revision: The survey will be conducted by the Sea Grant Program 
rather than the Office of Education and the Gulf of Mexico Regional 
Collaboration Team, as it was originally.

II. Method of Collection

    Primarily, respondents will be asked to complete the survey online 
through the web-based survey tool ``Survey Monkey'' 
(www.surveymonkey.com). Alternatively, a print version of the survey 
will be made available upon request, which can be returned by mail or 
facsimile.
