To comply with this requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information listed below. Title: Generic Clearance for Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Abstract: In accordance with section 748 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the OCO anticipates undertaking a variety of service delivery-focused activities over the next few years which include consumer outreach and informationsharing with stakeholders that are responsive to stakeholders’ needs and sensitive to changes in the consumer market.

By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful information on perceptions and opinions. The solicitation of information on delivery of consumer services will address such areas as appropriate messages, effective message delivery methods, effective event outreach tactics and characteristics, new outreach program ideas and content, and current consumer beliefs, psychographics and social norms that will assist the agency in developing outreach and communications campaigns. Since these systems will use similar methods for information collection or otherwise share common elements, the OCO is proposing a generic clearance for this process which will allow the OCO to implement these systems and meet the obligations of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:22 Mar 03, 2016 Jkt 238001 PRA without the delays of the normal clearance process.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, Federal agencies must obtain 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') for each 
collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ``Collection of 
Information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3 and 
includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public 
submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 
Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires 
Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register 
concerning each proposed collection of information, including each 
proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before 
submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this 
requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection 
of information listed below.
    Title: Generic Clearance for Collection of Qualitative Feedback on 
Agency Service Delivery.
    Abstract: In accordance with section 748 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the 
OCO anticipates undertaking a variety of service delivery-focused 
activities over the next few years which include consumer outreach and 
information-sharing with stakeholders that are responsive to 
stakeholders' needs and sensitive to changes in the consumer market. 
The proposed information collection activity will use similar methods 
for information collection or otherwise share common elements, and 
provide a means to gather qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback 
in an efficient, timely manner. By qualitative feedback we mean 
information that provides useful information on perceptions and 
opinions. The solicitation of information on delivery of consumer 
services will address such areas as appropriate messages, effective 
message delivery methods, effective event outreach tactics and 
characteristics, new outreach program ideas and content, and current 
consumer beliefs, psychographics and social norms that will assist the 
agency in developing outreach and communications campaigns. Since these 
systems will use similar methods for information collection or 
otherwise share common elements, the OCO is proposing a generic 
clearance for this process which will allow the OCO to implement these 
systems and meet the obligations of the PRA without the delays of the 
normal clearance process. Collection methods may include focus groups 
and surveys as well as other relevant collection methods that meet the 
conditions appropriate for a generic clearance as outlined below. The 
OCO 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 respondent, or 
burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both the respondents 
and the Federal Government;
     The collections are non-controversial 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;
     Information gathered is intended to be used only 
internally for general service improvement and program management 
purposes and is not intended for release outside of the Commission (if 
released, the Commission must indicate the qualitative nature of the 
information);
     Information gathered will not be used for the purpose of 
substantially informing influential policy decisions; and
     Information gathered will yield qualitative information; 
the collections will not be designed or expected to yield statistically 
reliable results or used as though the results are generalizable to the 
population of study. Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Commission, including whether the information will have a practical 
use;
    With respect to the collection of information, the Commission 
invites comments on:
     The accuracy of the Commission's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information 
on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
