HRSA is requesting a generic approval from OMB to conduct the partner surveys. Partner surveys to be conducted by HRSA might include, for example, mail or telephone surveys of grantees to determine satisfaction with grant processes or technical assistance provided by a contractor, or in-class evaluation forms completed by providers who receive training from HRSA grantees, to measure satisfaction FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES with the training experience. Results of these surveys will be used to plan and redirect resources and efforts as needed to improve services and processes. HRSA may also use focus groups to gain partner input into the design of mail and telephone surveys. Focus groups, in-class evaluation forms, mail surveys, and telephone surveys are expected to be the preferred data collection methods. A generic approval allows HRSA to conduct a limited number of partner surveys without a full-scale OMB review of each survey. If continued generic approval is granted, information on each individual partner survey will not be published in the Federal Register. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested.

    Abstract: In response to Executive Order 12862, HRSA proposes to 
conduct voluntary customer surveys of its partners to assess strengths 
and weaknesses in program services and processes. HRSA partners are 
typically state and local governments, health care facilities, health 
care consortia, health care providers and trainees, and researchers. 
HRSA is requesting a generic approval from OMB to conduct the partner 
surveys.
    Partner surveys to be conducted by HRSA might include, for example, 
mail or telephone surveys of grantees to determine satisfaction with 
grant processes or technical assistance provided by a contractor, or 
in-class evaluation forms completed by providers who receive training 
from HRSA grantees, to measure satisfaction with the training 
experience. Results of these surveys will be used to plan and redirect 
resources and efforts as needed to improve services and processes.
    HRSA may also use focus groups to gain partner input into the 
design of mail and telephone surveys. Focus groups, in-class evaluation 
forms, mail surveys, and telephone surveys are expected to be the 
preferred data collection methods.
    A generic approval allows HRSA to conduct a limited number of 
partner surveys without a full-scale OMB review of each survey. If 
continued generic approval is granted, information on each individual 
partner survey will not be published in the Federal Register.
