SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Abstract: The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the government’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54341 mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. No comments were received by the agency in response to the 60-day notice published in the Federal Register of December 22, 2010 (75 FR 80542). Below we provide EEOC’s projected average estimates for the next three years: Current Actions: New collection of information. Type of Review: New collection. Affected Public: Individuals and households, businesses and organizations, State, Local or Tribal Government. Average Expected Annual Number of Activities: 5. Respondents: 8,020. Annual Responses: 11,020. Frequency of Response: Once per respondent for four activities, twice per respondent for one activity. Average Minutes per Response: 6.5. Burden Hours: 1194. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget control number.

In response to the August 10, 2017 Notice, the Commission received comments from the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (‘‘CTFK’’) and Altria Client Services (‘‘Altria’’). The CTFK comment specifically noted the utility and importance of the Commission’s Cigarette and Smokeless Tobacco Reports, and urged the agency to continue collecting and reporting industry sales and marketing expenditure data, which CTFK stated provide ‘‘critical data to researchers, policymakers, advocates and the general public.’’ CTFK additionally observed: The FTC is currently the primary source for data on cigarette and smokeless tobacco companies’ marketing and promotional expenditures. No other agency collects and publishes such information directly from the companies, making the FTC reports the most accurate and reliable assessment of tobacco marketing and promotion expenditures available. CTFK at 1. CTFK, however, suggested certain modifications to the Commission’s reports. Specifically, CTFK recommended that the Commission: (1) Report separately price discount expenditures for retailers and wholesalers; (2) clarify the definitions of certain expenditure categories— specifically, in which category coupons that consumers obtain online are to be counted; (3) report data on a company- E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1
