submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 
Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires 
Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register 
concerning each proposed collection of information, including each

    Title: Generic Clearance for Collection of Qualitative Feedback on

    Abstract: In accordance with section 748 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the 
OCEO anticipates undertaking a variety of service delivery focused 
activities over the next few years that include consumer outreach and 
information-sharing with stakeholders which are responsive to 
stakeholders' needs and sensitive to changes in the market. The 
proposed information collection activity will use similar methods for 
information collection or otherwise share common elements, and provide 
a means to gather qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an 
efficient, timely manner. By qualitative feedback we mean information 
that provides useful information on perceptions and opinions. The 
solicitation of information on delivery of consumer services will 
address such areas as appropriate messages, effective message delivery 
methods, effective event outreach tactics and characteristics, new 
outreach program ideas and content, and current consumer beliefs, 
psychographics and social norms that will assist the agency in 
developing outreach and communications campaigns. Since these systems 
will use similar methods for information collection or otherwise share 
common elements, the OCEO is proposing a generic clearance for this 
process, which will allow the OCEO to implement these systems and meet 
the obligations of the PRA without the delays of the normal clearance 
process. Collection methods may include focus groups and surveys as 
well as other relevant collection methods that meet the conditions 
appropriate for a generic clearance as outlined below. The OCEO will 
only submit a collection for approval under this generic clearance if 
it meets the following conditions:
     The collections are voluntary;
     The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on 
considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondent, or 
burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both the respondents 
and the Federal Government;
     The collections are non-controversial and do not raise 
issues of concern to other Federal agencies;
     Any collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions 
from respondents who have experience with the program or may have 
experience with the program in the near future;
     Personally identifiable information (PII) is collected 
only to the extent necessary and is not retained;
     Information gathered is intended to be used only 
internally for general service improvement and program management 
purposes and is not intended for release outside of the Commission (if 
released, the Commission must indicate the qualitative nature of the 
information);
     Information gathered will not be used for the purpose of 
substantially informing influential policy decisions; and
     Information gathered will yield qualitative information; 
the collections will not be designed or expected to yield statistically 
reliable results or used as though the results are generalizable to the 
population of study. Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Commission, including whether the information will have a practical 
use;
    With respect to the collection of information, the Commission 
invites comments on:
     The accuracy of the Commission's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the

on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting
