SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Purpose and Background A. Purpose This notice informs the public that HUD has submitted to OMB a request for approval of the information collection described in Section II.A. The first notice that solicited public comment on the information collection described in Section II.A for a period of 60 days (60-day Notice) was published on June 10, 2015, at 80 FR 32974. B. Background Executive Order 12862, entitled ‘‘Setting Customer Service Standards,’’ requires that Federal agencies provide the highest quality service to their customers by identifying needed services and seeking feedback on offered services. The information proposed to be collected under this notice is designed by HUD to garner qualitative feedback from HUD customers in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. In accordance with the Executive Order, the term ‘‘customer’’ means an individual or entity that is directly served by a department or agency. The term ‘‘qualitative feedback’’ refers to information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but does not constitute statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of the study. The collections to be undertaken under this HUD proposed generic collection will allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable communications between HUD and its customers. The collections will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of HUD products and services, help identify where existing products and services may be lacking in some aspects, and whether there are additional products and services that could be offered by HUD. This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB E:\FR\FM\28AUN1.SGM 28AUN1
