    Title: Board of Veterans' Appeals Voice of the Veteran Appellant 
Satisfaction Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 2900-0816.
    Type of Review: Renewal.
    Abstract: This notice solicits comments information needed to 
enable the Board to gauge the effectiveness of the Board's process 
delivering information and assistance to Veterans and other appellants, 
as well as assess Veterans' and other appellants' overall level of 
satisfaction with the Board's appeals process. In addition, the data 
will be used by the Board to make improvements to the Board's 
operational processes and service delivery, which in turn, will enable 
the Board to serve Veterans in the most efficient and effective way 
possible.
    Currently, the Board collects customer satisfaction data using the 
Customer Satisfaction Research Study, consisting of two survey 
instruments--the Appellant Satisfaction Telephone Survey and the 
Appellant Satisfaction eSurvey. The Board provides a sample to J.D. 
Power and Associates (JDPA) on a monthly basis of all individuals who 
have been issued a decision in the previous month. JDPA contacts 
individuals to participate in a 5-minute phone survey and are asked at 
the end of the phone survey to provide an email address to participate 
in a longer online eSurvey. If respondents agree to provide their email 
address, JDPA sends an email invitation with the eSurvey link. Survey 
results are aggregated and included in quarterly results reports to the 
Board. The Board will continue to benefit from obtaining direct 
feedback from Veterans and other appellants regarding their experience 
with the Board's appeals process. Specifically, the Veterans' and other 
appellants' feedback will provide the Board three key benefits: (1) 
Identify what is most important to them in determining their 
satisfaction with the Board's appeals process; (2) determine how to 
improve their experience with the Board's appeals process; and (3) 
serve to guide training and/or operational activities aimed at 
enhancing the quality of service provided to Veterans and other 
appellants.
    The Board and JDPA will continue to survey Veterans and other 
appellants who have had their appeal decided through the Board's 
appeals process. This will enable the Board to gauge the effectiveness 
of its process delivering information and assistance to Veterans, as 
well as assess Veterans' overall level of satisfaction with the Board's 
appeals experience. In addition, the data will be used by the Board to 
make potential improvements to its operational processes and service 
delivery, which in turn, will enable the Board to serve Veterans and 
other appellants in the most efficient and effective way possible.
    Affected Public: Individuals and households.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 1,571 hours.
    Estimated Average Burden per Respondent: 5 minutes for telephone 
survey; 12 minutes for eSurvey.
    Frequency of Response: One-time.
