strengths and weaknesses of current services and make improvements in 
service delivery based on feedback. The solicitation of feedback will

maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this 
information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and 
stakeholders on the Agency's services will be unavailable.

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;

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;
     Any collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions 
from respondents who have experience with the corresponding program or 
may have experience with the program in the near future; and
     With the exception of information needed to provide 
renumeration for participants of focus groups and cognitive laboratory 
studies, personally identifiable information (PII) is collected only to 
the extent necessary and is not retained.
    If these conditions are not met, the Agency will submit an 
information collection request to OMB for approval through the normal 
PRA process.
