Title: Clearance for A–11 Section 280 Improving Customer Experience Information Collection. OMB Control Number: 2900–0876. Type of Review: ICR Revision. Abstract: This ICR Revision seeks to enhance and expand the scope of the ‘‘burden hours’’ associated with the Department of Veterans Affairs customer experience data collection system from 625,000 to 1,750,000. ‘‘Burden Hours’’ are defined as the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information in a survey or other associated data collection instrument. In layman’s terms, burden relates to the time it takes a respondent to complete and submit a customer satisfaction survey or questionnaire. VA, when it submitted the original Clearance for A– 11 Section 280 Improving Customer Experience Information Collection, calculated total the Burden needed based on the number of Customer Satisfaction surveys under management (43 in calendar year 2020) and our informed estimate of growth in number of surveys under management. As a result of unexpectedly strong and robust need (and corresponding requests) for new customer experience surveys by VA customers (stakeholders and partners), VA has already reached 94 surveys under management and anticipate to reach 130 or 140 by the end of Fiscal Year 2022. This anticipated FY22 growth, and per our models for growth from now until our current ICR expires in March, 2023, directly translates into a corresponding need for an increase in associated ‘‘burden hours’’ from 625,000 to 1,750,000 to accommodate the current and future demand. This action is necessary now so that our ICR remains in good standing and VA does not exceed our approved burden hour grand total approved figure and risk being in non-compliance of our approved ICR. General Background on our Customer Experience data collection listening tools Whether seeking a loan, Social Security benefits, Veterans benefits, or other services provided by the Federal Government, individuals and businesses expect Government customer services to be efficient and intuitive, just like services from leading private-sector organizations.
