Form Numbers: N/A (electronic). Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 30, 2018 (83 FR 13808). The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) Section 2(b)(3) requires agencies to ‘‘improve Federal program effectiveness and public accountability by promoting a new focus on results, service quality, and customer satisfaction’’. In addition, as stated in the White House ‘‘Memorandum for Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies’’ regarding Executive Order No. 12862, ‘‘the actions the order prescribes, such as surveying VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:58 Jun 22, 2018 Jkt 244001 customers, surveying employees, and benchmarking, shall be continuing agency activities’’. This collection supports the DOT strategic goal of Organizational Excellence. In compliance with the Government Paperwork Elimination Act (GPEA), all of our data collection will be 100% electronic using an online form; Applicants will be asked to complete the survey just before they exit the system. The AVIATOR Customer Satisfaction Survey is designed to identify potential problems with FAA’s automated staffing solutions as well as to evaluate customer satisfaction with the on-line application process. The information is not gathered by any other collection. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to improve the AVIATOR system’s overall performance and customer satisfaction without utilizing the survey as a performance measurement tool. Respondents: Individuals who use AVIATOR (the FAA’s Online Job Application System). Frequency: On occasion of use of AVIATOR. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 0.05 hours. 1 Year average: 1 January–31 December 2017. It is estimated that it will take each of the 75,515 (estimated average) external applicants three minutes to complete one survey for a total of 3,776 hours, if all external applicants choose to complete the AVIATOR Customer Satisfaction Survey. The survey statistics show that an average of 2.2% of the applicants (approximately 1,645) complete a survey resulting in an estimate of 82 total hours. Applicants are asked ‘Was this the first time applying for a FAA job?’ and will be provided the options of ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Applicants will then see the set of statements below. They will be asked to give their level of agreement with each statement by selecting one of the following six choices: Strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree, no basis to judge. For each question, the applicant may include additional information in a text area. Applicant Statements: (1) Overall, my satisfaction with the FAA AVIATOR portion of this application process was positive. (2) I was able to navigate around the FAA AVIATOR website with little or no difficulty. (3) I was able to complete and submit the application with no difficulty (only applicable to applicants whose responses met the eligibility requirements of the position). PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (4) The FAA AVIATOR system notified me when there was a problem with my application (applicable to applicants whose responses did NOT meet the eligibility requirements of the position). (5) I was able to get assistance with the FAA AVIATOR system as needed. Applicants will also be given the opportunity to add additional comments. Estimated Total Annual Burden: Calendar year: 1 January–31 December 2017. Time burden for respondents: 1,645 responses × 0.05 hours = 82.25 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on June 18, 2018.
