To comply with this requirement, the OCC is publishing this notice of the renewal of the following information collection: Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. OMB Control No.: 1557–0248. Type of Review: Regular. Affected Public: Businesses or individuals. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Burden Estimate: Number of Respondents: 7,025. Total Annual Burden: 2,850. Description: This generic information collection request (ICR) provides a means to solicit qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Federal government’s commitment to improving service delivery. Qualitative feedback is information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions but does not include statistical survey or quantitative results that can be attributed to the surveyed population. This qualitative feedback provides insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations; provides an early warning of issues with service; and/or focuses attention on areas where communication, training, or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. It also enables ongoing, collaborative, and actionable communications between the OCC and its customers and stakeholders, while also utilizing feedback to improve program management. The OCC’s solicitations for feedback target areas such as timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues related to service delivery. The OCC uses the responses to inform and plan efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If the OCC does not collect this information, it will not have access to vital feedback from customers and stakeholders. Under this generic ICR, the OCC will submit a specific information collection for approval only if the collection meets the following conditions: • It is voluntary; • It imposes a low burden on respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or burden-hours per respondent) and a low cost on both VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Nov 04, 2019 Jkt 250001 respondents and the Federal government; • It is non-controversial and does not raise issues of concern to other Federal agencies; • It is targeted to solicit opinions from respondents who have experience with the program or will have experience with the program in the near future; • It includes personally identifiable information (PII) only to the extent necessary, and the OCC does not retain the PII; 2 • It gathers information intended to be used internally only for general service improvement and program management purposes and not intended for release outside of the OCC; • It does not gather information to be used for the purpose of substantially informing influential policy decisions; • It gathers information that will yield qualitative information and will not be designed or expected to yield statistically reliable results or used to reach general conclusions about the surveyed population; and • Feedback collected provides useful information, but it does not yield data that can be attributed to the overall population. If these conditions are not met, the OCC will submit an information collection request to OMB for approval through the normal PRA process. The OCC will not use this type of generic clearance for the collection of qualitative feedback for any quantitative information collection. As a general matter, these information collections will not result in any new system of records containing privacy information and will not ask questions of a sensitive nature. Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the OCC’s estimate of the burden of the information collection; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; 2 The OCC may retain PII only in limited circumstances and, if it does so, the OCC must comply with applicable requirements, restrictions, and prohibitions of the Privacy Act of 1974 and other privacy and confidentiality laws that govern the collection, retention, use, and/or disclosure of such PII. PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59675 (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and/or purchase of services expended to provide information.
