Title: FERC–153, Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Commission Service Delivery. OMB Control No.: To be determined. Type of Request: New generic information collection. Abstract: The proposed information collection provides a means to 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 data 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 of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. This collection will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between FERC and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. The solicitation of feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:46 Jan 03, 2017 Jkt 241001 appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the Commission’s services will be unavailable. The Commission 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; • The 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. Feedback collected under this generic clearance provides useful information, but it does 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 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to fielding the study. As a general matter, this information collection 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. This information collection is subject to the PRA. The Commission generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information which does not display a valid OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320. OMB authorization for an information collection cannot be for more than three years without renewal. Type of Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals and households; Businesses or other for-profit and not-for-profit organizations; State, Local, or Tribal government. Estimate of Annual Burden: 2 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden and cost for the information collection as: 2 Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.

ACTION: Notice of Rate Order. AGENCY: The Deputy Secretary has approved and placed into effect on an interim basis Rate Order No. SWPA–71, which provides the following Integrated System Non-Federal Transmission Service (NFTS) Rate Schedule: Rate Schedule NFTS–13A, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal Transmission Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to Delegation Order Nos. 00–037.00A, effective October 25, 2013, and 00– 001.00F, effective November 17, 2014, Rate Order No. SWPA–71, is approved mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: 2 1,500 hours = 90,000 minutes. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:46 Jan 03, 2017 Jkt 241001 and placed into effect on an interim basis for the period January 1, 2017, through September 30, 2017, pursuant to the following rate schedule: Rate Schedule NFTS–13A, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal Transmission Service, which supersedes the existing Rate Schedule NFTS–13, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal Transmission Service. Southwestern Power Administration’s (Southwestern) Administrator has determined that an additional section within Southwestern’s Integrated System NFTS Rate Schedule is necessary to better align Southwestern’s rate schedule with standard practices utilized by the Southwest Power Pool, Inc. (SPP) Regional Transmission Organization. The new section 2.3.6 establishes a procedure for determining an Annual Revenue Requirement (ARR) for customers that choose to contract for Network Integration Transmission Service (NITS) on Southwestern’s transmission system pursuant to the SPP Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT). The NFTS–13 Rate Schedule included a stated rate for NITS that is calculated by dividing Southwestern’s monthly revenue requirement, derived from Southwestern’s NFTS ARR identified within the Southwestern 2013 Integrated System Power Repayment Studies (PRS), by the net transmission capacity available for NITS. Modifying Southwestern’s rate schedule to include an ARR for SPP NITS, rather than applying a stated rate better aligns with standard practices utilized by SPP. Therefore, in place of applying the NITS stated rate for SPP NITS on Southwestern’s transmission system, the proposed Section 2.3.6 includes a procedure for determining and updating an SPP NITS ARR, as a portion of Southwestern’s NFTS ARR, based on the amount of revenue assumed to be recovered on an annual basis from NITS customers in each approved PRS. If additional customers choose to contract for SPP NITS on Southwestern’s transmission system, the new Section 2.3.6 methodology updates the SPP NITS ARR. The title of the NFTS–13 Rate Schedule was changed to NFTS– PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13A to reflect the addition of Section 2.3.6. The Southwestern 2013 PRS indicated that rates (total Southwestern NFTS ARR) prescribed by NFTS–13, Wholesale Rates for Non-Federal Transmission Service, as approved in Docket No. EF14–1–000, for the period October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2017, are sufficient to meet repayment criteria and will have no impact on the amortization or status of repayment forecasted in the Southwestern 2013 PRS and will not require rate changes. Revenues based on current rates remain sufficient to meet repayment criteria. The Southwestern Administrator has followed Title 10, Part 903, Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations, ‘‘Procedures for Public Participation in Power and Transmission Rate Adjustments and Extensions,’’ in connection with the rate schedule revisions. The public was advised by notice published in the Federal Register (81 FR 75814), November 1, 2016, of the proposed rate schedule change and of the opportunity to provide written comments for a period of 30 days ending December 1, 2016. One customer provided comments during the period of public participation related to the proposed rate schedule change, which consisted of some clarifying questions that Southwestern answered and one comment on phrasing that Southwestern acknowledged. Information regarding this rate proposal, including studies and other supporting material, and comments received is available for public review in the offices of Southwestern Power Administration, Williams Tower I, One West Third Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74103. Following review of Southwestern’s proposal within the Department of Energy, I approve Rate Order No. SWPA–71. E:\FR\FM\04JAN1.SGM 04JAN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that FERC intends to 
submit this collection to OMB for approval and solicits comments on 
specific aspects for the proposed information collection. Previously, 
the Commission previously published a 60-day notice in the Federal 
Register (81 FR 70402, 10/12/2016) and received no comments.
    Title: FERC-153, Generic Clearance for the Collection of 
Qualitative Feedback on Commission Service Delivery.
    OMB Control No.: To be determined.
    Type of Request: New generic information collection.
    Abstract: The proposed information collection provides a means to 
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 data 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 of issues with service, or focus 
attention on areas where communication, training or changes in 
operations might improve delivery of products or services. This 
collection will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable 
communications between FERC and its customers and stakeholders. It will 
also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of 
program management.
    The solicitation of feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, 
appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of 
service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. 
Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or 
maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this 
information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and 
stakeholders on the Commission's services will be unavailable.
    The Commission 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 non-controversial and do not raise 
issues of concern to other Federal agencies;
     The 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.
    Feedback collected under this generic clearance provides useful 
information, but it does 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 to fielding 
the study.
    As a general matter, this information collection 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.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. The Commission 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information which 
does not display a valid OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320. OMB 
authorization for an information collection cannot be for more than 
three years without renewal.
    Type of Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals and households; 
Businesses or other for-profit and not-for-profit organizations; State, 
Local, or Tribal government.
    Estimate of Annual Burden: \2\ The Commission estimates the annual 
public reporting burden and cost for the information collection as:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. For 
further explanation of what is included in the information 
collection burden, refer to 5 Code of Federal Regulations 1320.3.
