Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 118 / Monday, June 20, 2016 / Notices not by individually identifiable labels. Electronic records are retrieved by name or other identifying aspects. ACCESS CONTROLS: Access to records is limited to those whose official duties require it. Paper records are secured by lock and key and electronic records are password protected. The electronic storage systems have the ability to track individual actions within the applications. The audit and accountability controls are based on Board standards which, in turn, are based on applicable laws and regulations. The controls assist in detecting security violations and performance or other issues within the electronic systems. Access is restricted to authorized employees and contractors within the Board and vendor customer support personnel who require access for official business purposes. Board users are classified into different roles and common access and usage rights are established for each role. User roles are used to delineate between the different types of access requirements such that users are restricted to data that is required in the performance of their duties. Periodic audits and reviews are conducted to determine whether authenticated users still require access and whether there have been any unauthorized changes in any information maintained. RETENTION AND DISPOSAL: The current retention period for application materials of applicants who are not hired is two years. The Board is presently re-evaluating the retention schedule for all application materials, however, and until the existing retention period is confirmed as appropriate or a new retention period is set, the Board will maintain the application materials indefinitely. Application materials for applicants who are hired are kept in the employee’s official personnel file and maintained in accordance with the System of Records entitled BGFRS–4, ‘‘FRB—General Personnel Records.’’ asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SYSTEM MANAGER AND ADDRESS: The system manager for records other than those involving the recruitment of economist or research assistant positions in the economics divisions of the Board is the Assistant Director, Talent Acquisition, Management Division, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 20th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20551.

Purpose A notice was published in the Federal Register at 81 FR 20638 on April 8, 2016. No comments were received. The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 the Agency and its customers and 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 non-response bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. The Digital Government Strategy released by the White House in May, 2012 drives agencies to have a more customercentric focus. Because of this, GSA anticipates an increase in requests to use this generic clearance, as the plan states that: A customer-centric principle charges us to do several things: Conduct research to understand the customer’s business, needs and desires; ‘‘make content more broadly available and accessible and present it through multiple channels in a program- and device-agnostic way; make content more accurate and understandable by maintaining plain language and content freshness standards; and offer easy paths for feedback to ensure we continually improve service delivery. The customer-centric principle holds true whether our customers are internal (e.g., the civilian and military federal workforce in both classified and unclassified environments) or external (e.g., individual citizens, businesses, research organizations, and state, local, and tribal governments).’’ E:\FR\FM\20JNN1.SGM 20JNN1
