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.

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.

    Title of Information Collection: Generic Clearance for the 
Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery.

    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 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 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 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
