SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract and Request for Comments NCUA intends to amend the current collection 3133–0188, ‘‘Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery.’’ The proposed amendment intends to increase the hours available to obtain feedback on services provided by NCUA offices. NCUA anticipates using a variety of methods to collect customer satisfaction feedback from credit unions, including, but not limited to, web and paper-based surveys or feedback forms, web-based polling or other interactive responses, comment cards, and social media. The information collection activity will VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Jan 21, 2015 Jkt 235001 garner qualitative stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with NCUA’s commitment to improving service delivery. Qualitative feedback is information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but is not a statistical survey that yields quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus 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 NCUA and its stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. 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 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 utilizing other information collections that are designed to yield quantitative results. NCUA requests you send comments that address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents such as PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3255 through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA’s policy to make all comments available to the public for review. II. Data Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. OMB Number: 3133–0188. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Amendment of currently approved collection. Description: The information collection activity will garner qualitative stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with NCUA’s commitment to improving service delivery.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract and Request for Comments

    NCUA is requesting an extension of the previously approved 
collection for 3133-0121. The Federal Credit Union (FCU) Act 
specifically requires all federally insured credit unions to notify 
NCUA at least 30 days prior to a change in official or senior executive 
officer if that credit union is newly chartered or in troubled 
condition. During that 30-day period, NCUA can disapprove the credit 
union's request. Since the last submission for 3133-0121, NCUA amended 
12 CFR 701.14 to redefine ``troubled condition'' in relation to 
federally insured state chartered credit unions (FISCUs). The revised 
rule redefines a FISCU in ``troubled condition'' to be not only when 
its state supervisory authority (SSA) assigns it a ``4'' or ``5'' 
composite code rating, but also when either its SSA or NCUA assigns 
such a rating. Prior definitions of troubled credit unions did not 
include FISCUs rated a code 4 or 5 only by NCUA.
    The FCU Act requires notice from the insured credit union to 
include certain personal information about the individual to determine 
the individual's fitness for the position. NCUA regulation at 12 CFR 
701.14 implements Section 212. Section 701.14 requires that within 10 
calendar days of receiving the notice, the Regional Director must 
inform the credit union either that the notice is complete or that 
additional specified information is required to be submitted within 30 
calendar days. Additionally, this section requires the Regional 
Director or Director of Office of National Examinations and Supervision 
to issue a written decision of approval or disapproval to the 
individual and the credit union within 30 calendar days of receipt of 
the notice. Otherwise, the individual is approved. NCUA's regulation at 
12 CFR 741.205 requires federally insured state-chartered credit unions 
to follow section 701.14.
    NCUA's regulations at 12 CFR part 747 (Subpart J) sets forth the 
rights an individual or a credit union may exercise and procedures to 
be followed in responding to a notice of disapproval by NCUA.
    NCUA's forms 4063 and 4063a provide a uniform method for credit 
unions and individuals to submit information to NCUA regarding changes 
to officials and senior executive officers. NCUA uses the information 
to determine an individual's fitness for the position.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
    NCUA requests you send your comments on this collection to the 
location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: 
(a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper 
performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have 
practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden 
(hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents such as through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the 
public for review.
