SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Abstract: The information collection activity will gather qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with NARA’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback, we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions; not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the study population. Qualitative feedback provides insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations, provides an early warning of service issues, or focuses attention on areas where communication, training, or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable communications between NARA and its customers and stakeholders, and allow feedback to contribute directly to program management improvement. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target population to which generalizations will be made, the E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 169 / Tuesday, September 2, 2014 / Notices sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. NARA received no comments in response to the 60-day notice published in the Federal Register of June 11, 2014 (79 FR 33598 and 33599). Below, we provide NARA’s projected average estimates for the next three years: Current Actions: OGIS Customer Service Assessment, NRPC Survey of Customer Satisfaction, and Training and Event Evaluations. Type of Review: Regular. Affected Public: Individuals and Households, Businesses and Organizations, State, Local or Tribal Government. Average expected annual number of activities: 20. Respondents: 25,000. Annual responses: 1. Frequency of Response: Once per request. Average minutes per response: 30. Burden hours: 12,500.
