Abstract The Census Bureau is requesting generic clearance to conduct customer satisfaction research which may be in the form of mailed or electronic questionnaires and/or focus groups, telephone interviews, or web-based interviews. The Census Bureau has ranked a customer-focused environment as one of its most important strategic planning objectives. The Census Bureau routinely needs to collect and analyze customer feedback about its products and services to better align them to its customers’ needs and preferences. Several programs, products, and distribution channels have been designed and/or redesigned based on feedback from its various customer satisfaction research efforts. Each research design is reviewed for content, utility, and user-friendliness by a variety of appropriate staff (including research design and subject-matter experts). The concept and design are tested by internal staff and a select sample of respondents to confirm its appropriateness, user-friendliness, and to estimate burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information. Collection techniques are discussed and included in the research, concept, and design discussion to define the most time-, cost-efficient and accurate collection media. The clearance operates in the following manner: A block of burden hours is reserved at the beginning of the clearance period. The particular activities that will be conducted under the clearance are not specified in advance because they would not be known at the beginning of the clearance period. The Census Bureau provides detailed information to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) about the specific activities a minimum of two weeks prior to the planned start date of the collection. OMB provides any comments it may have prior to the start date of the planned activity. At the end of each year, a report is submitted to OMB that summarizes the number of hours used as well as the nature and results of the activities completed under the clearance.

I. Background

    Subtitle H of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act, as 
amended (7 U.S.C. 2009cc et seq.) establishes RBIP.
    The terms defined in 7 CFR part 4290 are applicable to this Notice.
    The RBIP promotes rural economic development through venture 
capital investment by for-profit RBICs. The mission of the RBIP is to 
encourage economic growth, innovation, and entrepreneurship by sharing 
in the financial success of privately owned and managed venture capital 
investment funds, for the benefit of America's small rural businesses 
and the customers and communities they serve.
    Under RBIP, USDA may license RBICs as either leveraged or non-
leveraged. The Agency began accepting applications for non-leveraged 
status under RBIP on August 6, 2012.
    The purpose of this Notice is to define the scope of the annual 
compliance review for each operating non-leveraged RBIC.
    All licensed RBICs are subject to regulatory compliance 
examinations by USDA under 7 CFR 4290.690. The examination objective is 
to evaluate and conclude whether the RBIC has appropriately complied 
with USDA program regulations in 7 CFR part 4290. The examination 
determines whether investments made by the RBIC were to eligible 
entities and for authorized purposes under program regulations.

II. Examination Provisions

    This section of the Notice identifies the procedures the Agency 
will use in the compliance examination of non-leveraged RBICs.

Procedures

    A. In accordance with 7 CFR 4290.690, the Agency will conduct each 
year an examination of each non-leveraged RBIC for the sole purpose of 
evaluating regulatory compliance.
    B. The Agency will conduct these regulatory compliance examinations 
using Agency rules located in subparts G, H, and I--as modified by 
subpart O--of 7 CFR part 4290 for non-leveraged RBICs.
    C. The Agency will apply the definitions of 7 CFR 4290.50 to RBIC 
examination reports and work papers.
    D. The Agency will examine the operations of the RBIC; it will not 
examine the investors in the RBIC.
    E. The Agency will determine whether each investment made by the

off-site, absent specific authorization from USDA for on-site visits.
    G. The Agency will provide a copy of the final examination report 
and its conclusions to the RBIC.
    H. If the portfolio concerns were determined to be ineligible under 
7 CFR 4290.700(e) during the compliance examination, the RBIC will have 
until the end of their next fiscal year to remedy the non-compliance. 
If the RBIC fails to comply with the Secretary's remedy, the Agency 
may, in accordance with 7 CFR 4290.3041, revoke the license of the 
RBIC.
    I. As amplified in this Notice, the Agency reviews the RBIC for 
regulatory compliance only. The Agency does not make any assessments, 
evaluations, warranties, or representations with respect to any aspect 
of the financial performance of the RBIP, its investments, or its
