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 • 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 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.

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: The OCC issued a notice for 60 days of comment on December 27, 2016, 81 FR 95301. No comments were received. Comments continue to be 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.
