In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
(1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
(2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
(3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
(4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Information Collection Requirement
1652-0030; TSA Customer Comment Card. This renewal continues a voluntary program for airport passengers to provide feedback to TSA regarding their experiences with TSA security procedures. This collection of information allows TSA to evaluate and address customer concerns about security procedures and policies.
TSA Customer Comment Cards collect feedback, and the passenger may voluntarily provide contact information. TSA may use the contact information to respond to the passenger's comments. For passengers who deposit their cards in the designated drop-boxes, TSA staff at airports collect the cards, categorize comments, enter the results into an online system for reporting, and respond to passengers as appropriate. Passengers also have the option to mail the cards directly to the address provided on the comment card, which varies by airport.
In addition, the TSA Contact Center will continue to be available for passengers to make comments independently of airport involvement via the Talk to TSA internet application on the TSA Web site at www.tsa.gov. Talk to TSA is an electronic form of the comment card intended for the same purpose, to allow passengers to provide feedback to TSA regarding their experiences with TSA security procedures. The information obtained from the electronic version (Talk to TSA) also allow TSA to evaluate and address customer concerns about security procedures and policies with an electronic interface. Additionally, one selection within the Talk to TSA application connects the user to the Civil Rights and Liberties form. This form is important as there are specific legal requirements for filing complaints. TSA estimates the number of respondents to be 1,783,800, with an estimated 150,880 annual burden hours.
Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on January 16, 2013.
Susan L. Perkins,
TSA Paperwork Reduction Act Officer, Office of Information Technology.
