The information collection activity provides a means to gather qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. From the TSA perspective, qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback is information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions; it is different than the results of statistical surveys, which yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This qualitative feedback provides insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations regarding TSA products or services, provides TSA with an early warning of issues with service, and focuses attention on areas where improvement is needed regarding communication, training, or changes in operations that might improve delivery of products or services. These collections allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. They also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. The solicitation of feedback targets areas such as: timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses are assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered by TSA. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the Agency’s services will be unavailable. The Agency will only submit a collection for approval under this generic clearance if it meets the following conditions: • The collections are voluntary. • The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both the respondents and the Federal Government. • The collections are noncontroversial and do not raise issues of concern to other Federal agencies. • Any collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions from respondents who have experience with the program or may have experience with the program in the near future. • Personally identifiable information (PII) is collected only to the extent necessary and is not retained.

The aggregate burden estimate is based on a review of past behavior of participating program offices and several individual office estimates. The likely respondents to this proposed information request are state, local, or tribal government and law enforcement; traveling public; individuals and households; and businesses and organizations. TSA estimates an average of 10 annual surveys with approximately 709,450 respondents per activity for a total of 7,094,500 responses. TSA further estimates a frequency of one response per request with an average response time of 30 minutes (0.5 hours) resulting in an estimated 3,547,250 burden hours.

The burden hour estimates reflect an increase over prior burden hour estimates because TSA anticipates increasing customer and stakeholder outreach due to expanding outreach efforts by additional program offices.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 
at http://www.reginfo.gov. 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.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0058; Generic Clearance for the Collection 
of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. The information 
collection activity provides a means to gather qualitative customer and 
stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with 
the Administration's commitment to improving service delivery.
    From the TSA perspective, qualitative customer and stakeholder 
feedback is information that provides useful insights on perceptions 
and opinions; it is different than the results of statistical surveys, 
which yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the 
population of study. This qualitative feedback provides insights into 
customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations 
regarding TSA products or services, provides TSA with an early warning 
of issues with service, and focuses attention on areas where 
improvement is needed regarding communication, training, or changes in 
operations that might improve delivery of products or services. These 
collections allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable 
communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. 
They also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of 
program management. The solicitation of feedback targets areas such as: 
timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, 
efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service 
delivery. Responses are assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve 
or maintain the quality of service offered by TSA. If this information 
is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the 
Agency's services will be unavailable.
    The Agency will only submit a collection for approval under this 
generic clearance if it meets the following conditions:
     The collections are voluntary.
     The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on 
considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or 
burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both the respondents 
and the Federal Government.
     The collections are noncontroversial and do not raise 
issues of concern to other Federal agencies.
     Any collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions 
from respondents who have experience with the program or may have 
experience with the program in the near future.
     Personally identifiable information (PII) is collected 
only to the extent necessary and is not retained.

[[Page 7140]]

    As a general matter, information collections will not result in any 
new system of records containing privacy information and will not ask 
questions of a sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, 
religious beliefs, and other matters that are commonly considered 
private.
    The aggregate burden estimate is based on a review of past behavior 
of participating program offices and several individual office 
estimates. The likely respondents to this proposed information request 
are state, local, or tribal government and law enforcement; traveling 
public; individuals and households; and businesses and organizations. 
TSA estimates an average of 10 annual surveys with approximately 
709,450 respondents per activity for a total of 7,094,500 responses. 
TSA further estimates a frequency of one response per request with an 
average response time of 30 minutes (0.5 hours) resulting in an 
estimated 3,547,250 burden hours. Program offices will provide more 
refined individual estimates of burden in their subsequent generic 
information collection applications. The burden hour estimates reflect 
an increase over prior burden hour estimates because TSA anticipates 
increasing customer and stakeholder outreach due to expanding outreach 
efforts by additional program offices.
