Notice of Public Meeting, Bears Ears National Monument Advisory Committee, Utah, 57880-57881 [2020-20407]

Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 57880 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 180 / Wednesday, September 16, 2020 / Notices participation will be voluntary. Should the Agency need to deviate from the requirements outlined in 5 CFR 1320, individual justification will be provided to OMB on a case-by-case basis. No attempt will be made to generalize the findings from these three groups of activities to be nationally representative or statistically valid. They are meant to compliment and help to contextualize performance and evaluation data as part of a three-pronged approach to understanding Federal program implementation and opportunities for improvement (Performance, Evaluation, and ‘‘Feedback’’ data 1). Customer Research: Insights gleaned from qualitative customer research may be presented publicly in the format of a conceptual user persona or customer journey map. Customer research can take anywhere from 6 weeks for a short sprint to a full fiscal year, depending on the specific project. The Agency expects most journey mapping efforts to last approximately 6 months, with a user persona and journey maps ready for feedback (both from internal and external to government stakeholders) within one month of completing customer research. Publicly available Journey maps will include specific language to contextualize their use and will be included in specific requests. This language can include something like: What should I know about journey maps? Journey maps are living documents— continually refined and revisited. There is never a ‘‘final’’ version, and these maps are meant to serve as a summary of the voices of actual customers of U.S. Government services. A map may not precisely document the way a Government program is meant to be navigated, accessed, or used. It might not capture every government program or resource available to a customer segment. However, it is the product of a qualitative research approach to gather insights from customers’ actual experiences. These findings can help us to identify areas for high-impact improvements across delivery channels and organizational silos. Customer Feedback: Once touchpoint surveys are implemented at transaction points along the customer journey interacting with Federal services, data from the A–11 Standard CX Feedback survey will be submitted to OMB quarterly for review and publication in a summary dashboard on performance.gov. This data will include: • Specific transaction point at which the survey was administered VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 Sep 15, 2020 Jkt 250001 • Total volume of customers that interacted at this transaction point during the given quarter • Total volume of customers that were presented the survey • Total number of customers who completed the survey • Mode(s) of collection (ex. online, over mobile, over the phone, paper form) • Specific survey instrument that shows the Agency’s wording of standard A– 11 CX Feedback survey • Distribution of the responses across the 5 point Likert scale for each of the standard questions The purpose of collecting volume and response numbers is to share customer feedback measures in context of the response rate and total volume of responses to qualify interpretation of the CX feedback data. Testing of Services and Digital Products: Similar to Customer Research, this can range from a short two-day rapid feedback from users within an Agile product development sprint or longer effort to gather more extensive feedback from multiple physical locations. DHS is particularly interested in comments which: 1. Evaluate 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; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information 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 electronic submissions of responses.
