Information Collection; Technology Transformation Services-Candidate Experience Surveys, 32394-32395 [2020-11577]

Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 32394 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 104 / Friday, May 29, 2020 / Notices Needs and Uses: The information collection activity will garner 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 are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or change in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it 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. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods of assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. OMB Control Number: 3060–1270. Title: Protecting National Security Through FCC Programs. Form Number: N/A. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit. Number of Respondents and Responses: 2,257 respondents; 2,257 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 3 hours. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:06 May 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 Frequency of Response: One-time reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 1.4(b)(1), 1.103(a), 151–154, 201(b), 229, 254, and 1004. Total Annual Burden: 6,771 hours. Total Annual Cost: No Cost. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission will consider the potential confidentiality of any information submitted, particularly where public release of such information could raise security concerns (e.g., granular location information). We expect, however, that the public interest in knowing whether a carrier uses or owns equipment or services from Huawei or ZTE would significantly outweigh any interest the carrier would have in keeping such information confidential. Respondents may request materials or information submitted to the Commission or to the Universal Service Administrative Company be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as an extension during this comment period to obtain the full threeyear clearance from OMB. Under this information collection, the Commission proposes to collect information to determine the extent to which potentially prohibited equipment exists in current networks and the costs associated with removing such equipment and replacing it with equivalent equipment. The Communications Act of 1934, as amended, requires the ‘‘preservation and advancement of universal service.’’ 47 U.S.C. 254(b). The information collection requirements reported under this collection are the result of Commission actions to promote the Act’s universal service goals. On November 22, 2019, the Commission adopted a Report and Order, Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, and Order, WC Docket No. 18–89, FCC 19– 121 (Protecting Against National Security Threats to the Communications Supply Chain Through FCC Programs). The Report and Order prohibits future use of Universal Service Fund (USF) monies to purchase, maintain, improve, modify, obtain, or otherwise support any equipment or services produced or provided by a company that poses a national security threat to the integrity of communications networks or the PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 communications supply chain. It also initially designated two entities— Huawei Technologies Company (Huawei) and ZTE Corporation (ZTE), along with their affiliates, subsidiaries, and parents—as covered companies posing such a national security threat. In the Further Notice, the Commission proposed to make the requirement to remove covered equipment and services from carriers’ networks contingent on the availability of a funded reimbursement program, in an effort to mitigate the impact on affected entities. This information collection is designed to collect data from eligible telecommunication carriers (ETCs) and other carriers to determine the extent of which potentially prohibited equipment exists in current networks and the costs associated with removing such equipment and replacing it with equivalent equipment. The data will aid the Commission’s review of the record and guide our next steps in this proceeding. Federal Communications Commission. Cecilia Sigmund, Federal Register Liaison Officer.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The goal of TTS is to modernize the way the government uses 
technology by applying modern methodologies and technologies to improve 
the public's experience with government. In order to accomplish this, 
we need to be able to attract top technical talent from across the 
country. This often means competing for talent with the private sector, 
where companies can often offer more robust compensation and benefits.
    In order to remain competitive, it is vital that we provide an 
exceptional candidate experience and maintain a strong brand 
reputation. Some of the ways we strive to do this is through providing 
clear job descriptions, thorough interview preparation and personalized 
candidate experience throughout the process. In doing so, we are better 
able to recruit more candidates into doing a tour of duty in the 
government. Candidate Surveys are a way for us to continuously measure 
how we are doing and make any necessary improvements to our hiring 
process so we can continue to hire and attract the top talent we need 
at the rate we need them in this demanding market.
    By consistently asking applicants and candidates for their feedback 
and reviewing the survey results, we can pinpoint what areas in our 
process need to be modified, changed, removed, and/or added. Surveys 
allow respondents to remain anonymous and will be sent out three times 
during the hiring process:
     After a candidate applies to a role. Data at this stage 
will help us understand if our job descriptions provide a clear 
understanding of the roles and responsibilities that we are hiring for. 
It will also help us understand if our website has thorough enough 
information about the overall hiring process or if there are more 
resources that we can be providing.
     After a candidate interviews. Data at this stage will help 
us understand if we are properly preparing candidates and interviewers 
for interviews.
     When the candidate is Selected or Not Selected after the 
Interview. Data at this stage will help us understand what the 
candidate's experience was with their TTS recruiter overall and if 
there is anything they think we can improve upon.
