SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) 
leads Federal agencies in shaping human resources management systems to 
effectively recruit, develop, manage and retain a high quality and 
diverse workforce. Performance measurement surveys are valuable tools 
to gather information from our customers so we can design and implement 
new ways to improve our performance to meet their needs. This 
collection request includes surveys that we currently use or plan to 
use during the next three years to measure our performance in providing 
services to meet our customer needs. The survey instruments include 
direct mail, telephone contact, focus groups and web exit surveys. Our 
customers include the general public, Federal benefit recipients, 
Federal agencies and Federal employees. We estimate 210,900 performance 
measurement surveys will be completed in the next 3 years. The time 
estimate varies from 15 minutes to 20 minutes to complete. The 
estimated burden is 70,275 hours.
