PHMSA has modified Part J2 in response to API’s comments. PHMSA has made additional improvements to the ‘‘Tool Technology’’ options and additional tool data for each technology. Also, PHMSA proposes collecting the tool propulsion system and detailed tool data for each run reported in Part J2. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES E. Miscellaneous Comments NORMAC believes that the proposed contributing factors on PHMSA’s form should be eliminated. PHMSA added the contributing factors in response to NTSB recommendation P–15–16 and several other commentators agree with the usefulness of the information. PHMSA believes that NORMAC’s other comments regarding the data quality are outside the scope of this Federal Register notice. PHMSA acknowledges PST’s recommendation to lower reporting requirements for natural gas transmission line. However, as PST acknowledges, such a change would require a rulemaking and is beyond the scope of this data collection effort. Common Ground Alliance (CGA) noted that several of PHMSA’s questions in Forms 7100.1 and 7100.2 (G3) parallel CGA’s Damage Information Reporting Tool and these questions may be revised in 2018. PHMSA participates in CGA and plans to propose changes as needed in response to CGA DIRT question changes. II. Summary of Impacted Collection Section 1320.8(d), title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and affected agencies an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping requests. This notice identifies two information collection requests that PHMSA will submit to OMB for renewal. PHMSA expects many of the new data elements are already known by the operator and that no report requires the completion of all fields on the forms.

Qualitative feedback is information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions but does not include statistical survey or quantitative results that can be attributed to the population of study. This qualitative feedback provides insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations; provides an early warning of issues with service; and/or focuses attention on areas where communication, training, or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. It also enables ongoing, collaborative, and actionable communications between the OCC, and its customers and stakeholders, while also utilizing feedback to improve program management.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal 
agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of 
information that they conduct or sponsor. The term ``collection of 
information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) 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 title 44 requires Federal agencies to publish 
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 OCC is 
publishing this notice of the renewal of the following information 
collection:
    Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback 
on Agency Service Delivery.
    OMB Control No.: 1557-0248.
    Type of Review: Regular.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Burden Estimate:
    Number of Respondents: 3,000.
    Total Annual Burden: 2,350.
    Description: This generic information collection request (ICR) 
provides a means to solicit qualitative customer and stakeholder 
feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Federal 
government's commitment to improving service delivery. Qualitative 
feedback is information that provides useful insights on perceptions 
and opinions but does not include statistical survey or quantitative 
results that can be attributed to the population of study. This 
qualitative feedback provides insights into customer or stakeholder 
perceptions, experiences, and expectations; provides an early warning 
of issues with service; and/or focuses attention on areas where 
communication, training, or changes in operations might improve 
delivery of products or services. It also enables ongoing, 
collaborative, and actionable communications between the OCC, and its 
customers and stakeholders, while also utilizing feedback to improve 
program management.
    Soliciting feedback targets areas such as timeliness, 
appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of 
service delivery, and resolution of issues related to service delivery. 
The responses are used to inform and plan efforts to improve or 
maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If the OCC does 
not collect this information, it will not have access to vital feedback 
from customers and stakeholders.
    Under this generic ICR, the OCC will submit a specific information 
collection for approval only if the collection meets the following 
conditions:
     It is voluntary;
     It imposes a low burden on respondents (based on 
considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or 
burden-hours per respondent) and a low cost on both respondents and the 
Federal government;
     It is non-controversial and does not raise issues of 
concern to other Federal agencies;
     It is targeted to solicit opinions from respondents who 
have experience with the program or will have such experience in the 
near future;
     It includes personally identifiable information (PII) only 
to the extent necessary, and the OCC does not retain the PII \1\;
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The OCC may retain PII only in limited circumstances, and if 
it does so, the OCC must comply with applicable requirements, 
restrictions, and prohibitions of the Privacy Act and other privacy 
and confidentiality laws that govern the collection, retention, use, 
and/or disclosure of such PII.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     It gathers information intended to be used internally only 
for general service improvement and program management purposes and not 
intended for release outside of the OCC (if released, the OCC must 
indicate the qualitative nature of the information);
     It does not gather information to be used for the purpose 
of substantially informing influential policy decisions; and
     It gathers information that will yield qualitative 
information and will not be designed or expected to yield statistically 
reliable results or used to reach general conclusions about the 
population of study.
    Feedback collected provides useful information, but it does not 
yield data that can be attributed to the overall population. This type 
of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for 
quantitative information collections.
    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.
    Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be 
summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments 
will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the 
information has practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the 
information collection;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology; and
    (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
