Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 21, 2021 / Notices serve the underserved populations that the Department assists. The Participant Assistance Program Customer Survey collects customer satisfaction data for a sample of private citizens who call into the participant assistance program to ask about their private sector employer provided benefits such as pensions, retirement savings, and health benefits. Three types of callers are queried: (1) Those who need benefit claim assistance; (2) those who have a valid benefit claim; and (3) those who have an invalid benefit claim. The results of the survey are analyzed to provide actionable data that could be used to improve program performance. Examples of improved performance that may result from that study include, but are not limited to: • Being more attuned to inquirers’ needs—Benefits Advisors should be more adept at identifying issues that lead to benefits recoveries and enforcement leads • Survey data will enable National and Regional management to identify potential training needs • Satisfaction scores will guide EBSA leadership to determine which Regions need assistance improving customer service • Scores on individual BAs will reveal high performers and allow the agency to use those BAs’ techniques as best practices for program-wide improvement. The study will include survey data from regional offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco and District offices in Miami, Seattle and Washington. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Focus of Comments The Department is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the collections of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • 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., by permitting electronic submissions of responses.
