SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. OMB Number: 0583–0151. Expiration Date of Approval: 6/30/ 2021. Type of Request: Renewal of an approved information collection. Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the functions of the Secretary (7 CFR 2.18, 2.53), as specified in the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) (21 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) (21 U.S.C. 451, et seq.) and the Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). These statutes mandate that FSIS protect the public by verifying that meat, poultry, and egg products are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled and packaged. FSIS is requesting renewal of the approved information collection regarding qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback on service delivery by the Agency. There are no changes to the existing information collection. The approval for this information collection will expire on June 30, 2021. The proposed information collection activity provides a means for FSIS to garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Agency’s commitment to improving service delivery. By ‘‘qualitative feedback,’’ FSIS means information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but not a statistical survey that yields VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:33 Dec 18, 2020 Jkt 253001 quantitative results that can be generalized to the population studied. Qualitative feedback provides insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations; provides an early warning of issues with the Agency’s customer service; and focuses attention on matters with respect to which communication or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. This collection will allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow the feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. The solicitation of qualitative feedback will target topics such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the Agency’s services will be unavailable. FSIS will only submit a collection for approval under this generic clearance if it meets the following conditions: The collection is voluntary; The collection is low-burden for respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or burden-hours per respondent) and is low-cost for both the respondents and the Federal Government; The collection is non-controversial and does not raise issues of concern to other Federal agencies; The collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions from respondents who have had 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; as a general matter, this information collection will not result in any new system of records containing privacy information and will not involve questions of a sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, religious beliefs, or other matters that are commonly considered private; 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 FSIS (if released, FSIS will indicate the qualitative nature of the information); PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Information gathered will not be used for the purpose of substantially informing policy decisions; and Information gathered will yield qualitative information; the collection 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 it does 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. FSIS has made the following estimates based upon an information collection assessment: Estimate of Burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average .5 hours per response. Respondents: Individuals and households; businesses and organizations; State, local, or Tribal government. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 4,000. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Annual Number of Responses: 4,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 2,000 hours.

    Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback 
on Agency Service Delivery.
    OMB Number: 0583-0151.
    Expiration Date of Approval: 6/30/2021.
    Type of Request: Renewal of an approved information collection.
    Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the 
functions of the Secretary (7 CFR 2.18, 2.53), as specified in the 
Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) (21 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the 
Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) (21 U.S.C. 451, et seq.) and the 
Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). These 
statutes mandate that FSIS protect the public by verifying that meat, 
poultry, and egg products are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and 
properly labeled and packaged.
    FSIS is requesting renewal of the approved information collection 
regarding qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback on service 
delivery by the Agency. There are no changes to the existing 
information collection. The approval for this information collection 
will expire on June 30, 2021.
    The proposed information collection activity provides a means for 
FSIS to garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an 
efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Agency's commitment to 
improving service delivery.
    By ``qualitative feedback,'' FSIS means information that provides 
useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but not a statistical 
survey that yields quantitative results that can be generalized to the 
population studied. Qualitative feedback provides insights into 
customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences, and expectations; 
provides an early warning of issues with the Agency's customer service; 
and focuses attention on matters with respect to which communication or 
changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. 
This collection will allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable 
communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. 
It will also allow the feedback to contribute directly to the 
improvement of program management.
    The solicitation of qualitative feedback will target topics such 
as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, 
efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service 
delivery. Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to 
improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If 
this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and 
stakeholders on the Agency's services will be unavailable.
    FSIS will only submit a collection for approval under this generic 
clearance if it meets the following conditions:
    The collection is voluntary;
    The collection is low-burden for respondents (based on 
considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or 
burden-hours per respondent) and is low-cost for both the respondents 
and the Federal Government;
    The collection is non-controversial and does not raise issues of 
concern to other Federal agencies;
    The collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions from 
respondents who have had 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; as a general matter, this 
information collection will not result in any new system of records 
containing privacy information and will not involve questions of a 
sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, religious 
beliefs, or other matters that are commonly considered private;
    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 FSIS (if released, FSIS will indicate 
the qualitative nature of the information);
    Information gathered will not be used for the purpose of 
substantially informing policy decisions; and
    Information gathered will yield qualitative information; the 
collection 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 it does 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. FSIS 
has made the following estimates based upon an information collection 
assessment:
    Estimate of Burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average .5 hours per response.
    Respondents: Individuals and households; businesses and 
organizations; State, local, or Tribal government.
    Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 4,000.
    Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Estimated Annual Number of Responses: 4,000.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 2,000 hours.
    Copies of this information collection assessment can be obtained 
from Gina Kouba, Office of Policy and Program Development, Food Safety 
and Inspection Service, USDA, 1400 Independence SW, Mailstop 3758, 
South Building, Washington, DC 20250; (202) 720-5627.
    All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record. Copies of this information collection assessment can be 
obtained from Gina Kouba, Office of Policy and Program Development,

Mailstop 3758, South Building, Washington, DC 20250-3700; (202) 720-
5627.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of FSIS's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of FSIS's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
method and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to

[[Page 83037]]

be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques, 
or other forms of information technology. Comments may be sent to both 
FSIS, at the addresses provided above, and the Desk Officer for 
Agriculture, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of
