Abstract: The information collection activity will consist of a variety of activities over the next few years including customer outreach and information-sharing with stakeholders that are responsive to customers’ needs and sensitive to changes in the customer market. The proposed information collection activities will use similar VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:33 May 09, 2016 Jkt 238001 methods for information collection or otherwise share common elements, and provide a means to gather customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner. By feedback we mean information that provides useful information on perceptions and opinions. The solicitation of information will address such areas as appropriate messages, effective message delivery methods, effective programming, programming needs, and customer beliefs, psychographics and social norms that will assist the agency in developing outreach and communications plans. Since these systems will use similar methods for information collection or otherwise share common elements, the OCEO is proposing a generic clearance for this process which will allow the OCEO to implement these systems and meet the obligations of the PRA without the delays of the normal clearance process. The Federal Register notice with a 60day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on March 4, 2016 (81 FR 11520). Burden statement: The preliminary estimate of aggregate burden for this generic clearance follows. The estimate of the number of respondents is a projection and could change significantly based on the collection method ultimately used in the research. Respondents/Affected Entities: 1,440. Estimated number of responses: 10 per year. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 14,400 responses. Frequency of collection: Once per request. Average minutes per response: 120. Estimated total annual burden hours requested: 28,800 hours. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Dated: May 4, 2016. Robert N. Sidman, Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
