clearance will provide the FHWA a means to gather this data directly from our customers.
The information obtained from the surveys will be used to assist in evaluating service delivery and processes. The responses to the surveys will be voluntary and will not involve information that is required by regulations. There will be no direct cost to the respondents other than their time. The FHWA plans to provide an electronic means for responding to the majority of the surveys via the World Wide Web.
Respondents:State and local governments, highway industry organizations, general public.
Frequency:Generally, on an annual basis.
Estimated Average Burden per Response:The burden hours per response will vary with each survey; however, we estimate an average burden of 15 minutes for each survey.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours:We estimate that FHWA will survey approximately 21,000 respondents annually during the next three years. Therefore, the estimated total annual burden is 5,250 hours.
Public Comments Invited:You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FHWA's performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of computer technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
