OMB No.: 0970–0401. Description: Executive Order 12862 directs Federal agencies to provide service to the public that matches or exceeds the best service available in the private sector. In order to work continuously to ensure that the Administration for Children and Families’ programs are effective and meet our customers’ needs we use a generic clearance process to collect qualitative feedback on our service delivery. This collection of information is necessary to enable ACF to garner customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient timely manner, in accord with our commitment to improving service delivery. The information collected from our customers and stakeholders will help ensure that users have an effective, efficient and satisfying experience with the programs. 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 change in operation might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between ACF and its customer and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. This request is an extension of the ‘‘generic fast-track’’ process offered to all government agencies by OMB in 2010. Fast-tack means each request receives approval five days after submission, if no issues are brought to ACF’s attention by OMB within the five days.
