DATES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Type of Request: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved information collection for which approval has expired. Title of Information Collection: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. OMB Approval Number: 3316–0114. Abstract: Reinstatement of this information collection will enable TVA to obtain qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide TVA with insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations; help TVA quickly identify actual or potential problems with how the agency provides services to the public; or focus attention on areas where communication, training, or changes in operations might improve TVA’s delivery of its products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between TVA and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. TVA will solicit feedback in areas such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. TVA will use the responses to plan and inform its efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service and programs offered to the public. If this information is not collected, TVA will not have access to vital feedback from customers and stakeholders about the agency’s services and programs. TVA will only submit an information collection for approval under this PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 respondents, or burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both the respondents and the Federal Government; • The collections are noncontroversial 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 who 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 agency (if released, TVA will 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, and 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. Feedback collected under this generic clearance provides useful information, but will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. As a general matter, information collections will not result in any new system of records containing privacy information and will not ask questions of a sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, religious beliefs, and other matters that are commonly considered private. Type of Affected Public: Individuals and Households, Businesses and Organizations, State, Local or Tribal Governments. Small Businesses or Organizations Affected: Yes. Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 10,000.

TVA will summarize the comments and include them in the request for OMB approval. We are requesting comments on all aspects of this generic clearance request, including: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Aug 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 Notice and request for comments. ACTION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves requesting that small on-demand operators voluntarily provide the number of revenue passengers that boarded their aircraft at each airport annually. This information is used in determining an airport’s category and eligibility for federal funding on an annual basis. It is not available through any other federal data source. DATES: Written comments should be submitted by October 21, 2019. ADDRESSES: Please send written comments: By Electronic Docket: www.regulations.gov (2019–0640). By mail: Luis Loarte, FAA, 800 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20591. By fax: 202–267–5257. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Luis Loarte by email at: Luis.Loarte@faa.gov; phone: 202–267–9622. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for FAA’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. OMB Control Number: 2120–0067. Title: Air Taxi and Commercial Operator Airport Activity Survey. Form Numbers: FAA Form 1800–31. Type of Review: Clearance of a renewal of an information collection. Background: The data collected through this survey is the only source of data for charter and nonscheduled passenger data by Part 135 operator (air taxis). The data received on the form (either paper or signed electronic copy) is then incorporated into the Air Carrier Activity Information System which is used to determine whether an airport is eligible for Airport Improvement Program funds and for calculating primary airport sponsor apportionment as specified by title 49 United Stated Code (U.S.C.), section 47114. The data SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43645 collected on the form includes passenger enplanements by carrier and by airport. Passengers traveling on air taxis would be overlooked entirely if this passenger survey were not conducted. As a result, many airports would not receive their fair share of funds since there is currently no other source for this type of charter activity. On average, approximately 100 operators respond each year, reporting a total 1.1 million passengers. This data is important to those airports that struggle to meet the 2,500 and 10,000 passenger levels and could not do so without the reporting of the charter passengers. Respondents: The voluntary survey is sent through the U.S. Postal Service to approximately 190 small on-demand operators (certificated under Federal Aviation Regulation Part 135) that have reported activity in the last three years. The form is also available on the FAA website. Beginning with the calendar year 2019 data, operators will be able to access the form, electronically sign and submit it to the FAA. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 1.5 hours per respondent. Estimated Total Annual Burden: On average, approximately 100 respondents submit an annual response. The cumulative total annual burden is estimated to be 150 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on August 16, 2019.

substantially informing influential policy decisions; and
     Information gathered will yield qualitative information, 
and the collections will not be designed or expected to yield
