    Needs and Uses: The proposed information collection activity 
provides a means to garner qualitative customer and stakeholder 
feedback in an efficient and 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 insights into customer or stakeholder 
perceptions, experiences, and expectations; provide an early warning 
with issues about how the Board provides service to the public; or 
focus attention on areas where communication, training, or changes in 
operations might improve delivery of products or services. These 
collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative, and actionable 
communications between the Board and its customers and stakeholders. 
They will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement 
of program management.
    The solicitation of feedback will target areas 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 Board's services will be unavailable.
    The Board will only process a collection 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 may have 
experience with the program in the near future;
     personally identifiable information is collected only to 
the extent necessary and is not retained;
     information gathered will be used only internally for 
general service improvement and program management purposes and not for 
release outside of the agency;
     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. Such data uses would require more rigorous designs 
than the collections covered by this notice.
    As a general matter, information collections will not result in any
