Proposed Project Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery (0920–1071, 06/30/ 2018)—Extension—National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description CDC/NCEZID seeks a three-year extension of the information collection plan titled ‘‘Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery’’ (OMB Control Number 0920–1071). Approval of this plan will allow CDC to continue collection of routine customer feedback on agency service delivery efforts. 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 our programs are effective and meet our customers’ needs, the CDC (hereafter the ‘‘Agency’’) seeks to obtain OMB approval of a generic clearance to collect qualitative feedback on our 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 collection of information is necessary to enable the Agency to garner customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance 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 Agency’s 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 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. Since getting approval in June 2015, NCEZID has utilized this information collection plan (OMB Control Number 0920–1071) nine separate times (16,800 responses and 2,029 burden hours). There is no cost to respondents other than the time to participate. Authorizing legislation comes from Section 301 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241).
