SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal

``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 the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) 
requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal 
Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including 
each proposed extension or update of an existing collection of 
information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To 
comply with this requirement, ACL is publishing notice of the proposed 
collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to 
the following collection of information, ACL invites comments on: (1) 
Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of ACL's functions, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of ACL's 
estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to

information collection will include consumer assessment surveys for the

by ACL grantees in the Performance Outcomes Measures Project (POMP). 
Changes identified as a result of these initiatives were incorporated 
into the last data collection package that was approved by OMB and are 
included in this proposed extension of a currently approved collection. 
This information will be used by ACL to track performance outcome 
measures; support budget requests; comply with the GPRA Modernization 
Act of 2010 (GPRAMA) reporting requirements; provide national benchmark 
information; and inform program development and management initiatives.
