Report title: Report of Transaction Accounts, Other Deposits and Vault Cash Agency form number: FR 2900 OMB control number: 7100–0087 Frequency: Weekly, quarterly Reporters: Depository institutions Annual reporting hours: 586,166 hours Estimated average hours per response: 3.50 hours Number of respondents: 2,752 weekly and 6,093 quarterly General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a), 461, 603, and 615) and is given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: Nonexempt institutions–– defined as those with net transaction accounts greater than the exemption amount or with total deposits equal to or greater than the reduced reporting limit––file the fifteen–item FR 2900 weekly if their total deposits are equal to or greater than the nonexempt deposit cutoff and quarterly if their total deposits are less than the nonexempt deposit cutoff. U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks and banking Edge and agreement corporations are required to submit FR 2900 data weekly regardless of their deposit size. These mandatory data are used by the Federal Reserve for administering Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions) and for constructing, analyzing, and monitoring the monetary and reserve aggregates. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to (1) raise the nonexempt deposit cutoff to $229.1 million (compared with an indexed level of $181.1 million) and set the reduced reporting limit at its indexed value of $1.206 billion beginning in September VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:05 May 05, 2006 Jkt 208001 2006; (2) calculate the nonexempt deposit cutoff and the reduced reporting limit using the sum of total transaction accounts, savings deposits, and small time deposits, rather than total deposits, beginning with the September 2007 panel shift; and (3) index the nonexempt deposit cutoff and the reduced reporting limit annually to 80 percent of the June–to–June growth in total transaction accounts, savings deposits, and small time deposits at all depository institutions. The actual values of the nonexempt deposit cutoff and the reduced reporting limit to be used in September 2007 will be announced under the usual schedule, in October 2006. 2. Report title: Annual Report of Total Deposits and Reservable Liabilities Agency form number: FR 2910a OMB control number: 7100–0175 Frequency: Annually Reporters: Depository institutions Annual reporting hours: 5,317 hours Estimated average hours per response: 45 to 60 minutes, depending on entity type Number of respondents: 5,605 General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a) and 461) and is given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: Currently, the three–item FR 2910a is generally filed by exempt institutions whose net transaction accounts are greater than the exemption amount and whose total deposits (as shown on their December Call Report) are greater than the exemption amount but less than the reduced reporting limit. Respondents submit single–day data as of June 30. These mandatory data are used by the Federal Reserve for administering Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions) and for constructing, analyzing, and monitoring the monetary and reserve aggregates. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to make the following revisions to the FR 2910a reporting form, effective for the June 30, 2007, report date (1) replace data item 1, ‘‘Total Deposits,’’ with ‘‘Total Transaction Accounts, Savings Deposits, and Small Time Deposits;’’ (2) delete the parenthetical text from data item 1, ‘‘(If the amount reported for this item is less than or equal to $7.0 million, Items 2 and 2.a need not be completed);’’ (3) change the reporting form title from, ‘‘Annual Report of Total Deposits and Reservable Liabilities,’’ to ‘‘Annual Report of Deposits and Reservable Liabilities;’’ and (4) require depository institutions to submit either a positive or negative value in data item 2.a, ‘‘Net PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Transaction Accounts,’’ rather than reporting negative values as zero, as is currently required. 3. Report title: Allocation of Low Reserve Tranche and Reservable Liabilities Exemption Agency form number: FR 2930/2930a OMB control number: 7100–0088 Frequency: Annually and on occasion Reporters: Depository institutions Annual reporting hours: 40 hours Estimated average hours per response: 15 minutes Number of respondents: 160 General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a), 461, 603, and 615) and is given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: The FR 2930 and FR 2930a collect data on the allocation of the low reserve tranche and reservable liabilities exemption amount for depository institutions having offices (or groups of offices) that file separate FR 2900 deposit reports. The FR 2930 is filed by U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks and banking Edge and agreement corporations; the FR 2930a is filed by other types of depository institutions. Both reporting forms collect the same data. However, the instructions and explanatory information differ. These mandatory data are used to calculate the reserve requirement of an institution that submits separate FR 2900 data for two or more offices, that institution is required to allocate, using the FR 2930, the low reserve tranche and the exemption among those offices. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to combine the FR 2930 and FR 2930a into one reporting form (FR 2930) that would be used by any entity type (both foreign–related and domestic institutions). The instructions for the FR 2930 reporting form would be modified to reflect this change. The effective date of this revision would be September 30, 2006. Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, without revision of the following report: 1. Report title: Report of Foreign (Non–U.S.) Currency Deposits Agency form number: FR 2915 OMB control number: 7100–0237 Frequency: Quarterly Reporters: Depository institutions Annual reporting hours: 214 hours Estimated average hours per response: 30 minutes Number of respondents: 107 General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a)(2), and 347(d)) and is given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). E:\FR\FM\08MYN1.SGM 08MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 88 / Monday, May 8, 2006 / Notices Abstract: The FR 2915 collects seven– day averages of the amounts outstanding for foreign (non–U.S.) currency– denominated deposits held at U.S. offices of depository institutions, converted to U.S. dollars and included in the institution’s FR 2900 data. Foreign currency deposits are subject to reserve requirements and, therefore, are included in the FR 2900 data submission. All weekly and quarterly FR 2900 respondents offering foreign currency deposits file the six–item FR 2915 quarterly, on the same reporting schedule as quarterly FR 2900 respondents. Data collected on the FR 2915 are mainly used in the construction of the monetary aggregates. These data are included in deposit data submitted on the FR 2900 for reserve requirement purposes, but they are not included in the monetary aggregates. The FR 2915 is the only source of data on such deposits. column 1, last paragraph, correct the first sentence to read as follows: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 2, 2006.

Hypotheses of the study are that providing intensive, long-term case management services will facilitate a pro-social lifestyle leading to higher rates of sealing or expunging of criminal records and that the prospect of stigma reduction provided by a sealed criminal record will motivate offenders to remain crime and drug free in order to achieve a felony-free criminal record. The project consists of (1) providing technical assistance to develop and implement an enhanced model for case management services, and (2) evaluating of the effectiveness of the case management model in increasing the number of people that have their records sealed or maintain eligibility to have their records sealed. The study is confined to jurisdictions with statutes permitting records to be sealed within the remaining three-year parameters of the study. Two counties in Ohio, one involving an urban setting (Cuyahoga county which includes the city of Cleveland) and the other a rural setting (Clermont county adjacent to Northern Kentucky) were awarded by SAMHSA in 2002 in response to the original SAMHSA Request for Applications (RFA). Target populations, drawn from Cuyahoga and Clermont County Court of Common Pleas Probation Departments, are first-time felons that are eligible to have their felony records sealed, have a diagnosis of substance dependence or abuse, and will receive case management services, including treatment referral, through each County’s Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities (TASC) agency. Technical assistance to participating counties is provided to (1) develop a strengths-based case management model designed to increase the proportion of offenders that achieve record expungement or maintain eligibility to have their felony records sealed, and (2) involve the various stake holders, such as case managers, probation officers and administrators, prosecutors, public defenders, judges, and treatment providers in the implementation of the case management model. A formative evaluation provides feedback on the implementation of the program. A systems evaluation examines the services offered to the felons, and changes in attitudes towards sealing records on the part of critical stakeholders, such as prosecutors, judges and service providers, and criminal justice systemic evolution.

FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM


Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment 
Request

AGENCY: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve
SUMMARY: Background.
    On June 15, 1984, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)

Proposals to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, with revision, of the following reports:

    1. Report title: Report of Transaction Accounts, Other Deposits and 
Vault Cash
    Agency form number: FR 2900
    OMB control number: 7100-0087
    Frequency: Weekly, quarterly
    Reporters: Depository institutions
    Annual reporting hours: 586,166 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: 3.50 hours
    Number of respondents: 2,752 weekly and 6,093 quarterly
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a), 461, 603, and 615) and is given 
confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).
    Abstract: Nonexempt institutions--defined as those with net 
transaction accounts greater than the exemption amount or with total 
deposits equal to or greater than the reduced reporting limit--file the 
fifteen-item FR 2900 weekly if their total deposits are equal to or 
greater than the nonexempt deposit cutoff and quarterly if their total 
deposits are less than the nonexempt deposit cutoff. U.S. branches and 
agencies of foreign banks and banking Edge and agreement corporations 
are required to submit FR 2900 data weekly regardless of their deposit 
size. These mandatory data are used by the Federal Reserve for 
administering Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository 
Institutions) and for constructing, analyzing, and monitoring the 
monetary and reserve aggregates.
    Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to (1) raise the 
nonexempt deposit cutoff to $229.1 million (compared with an indexed 
level of $181.1 million) and set the reduced reporting limit at its 
indexed value of $1.206 billion beginning in September 2006; (2) 
calculate the nonexempt deposit cutoff and the reduced reporting limit 
using the sum of total transaction accounts, savings deposits, and 
small time deposits, rather than total deposits, beginning with the 
September 2007 panel shift; and (3) index the nonexempt deposit cutoff 
and the reduced reporting limit annually to 80 percent of the June-to-
June growth in total transaction accounts, savings deposits, and small 
time deposits at all depository institutions. The actual values of the 
nonexempt deposit cutoff and the reduced reporting limit to be used in 
September 2007 will be announced under the usual schedule, in October 
2006.
    2. Report title: Annual Report of Total Deposits and Reservable 
Liabilities
    Agency form number: FR 2910a
    OMB control number: 7100-0175
    Frequency: Annually
    Reporters: Depository institutions
    Annual reporting hours: 5,317 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: 45 to 60 minutes, depending 
on entity type
    Number of respondents: 5,605
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a) and 461) and is given confidential 
treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).
    Abstract: Currently, the three-item FR 2910a is generally filed by 
exempt institutions whose net transaction accounts are greater than the 
exemption amount and whose total deposits (as shown on their December 
Call Report) are greater than the exemption amount but less than the 
reduced reporting limit. Respondents submit single-day data as of June 
30. These mandatory data are used by the Federal Reserve for 
administering Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository 
Institutions) and for constructing, analyzing, and monitoring the 
monetary and reserve aggregates.
    Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to make the following 
revisions to the FR 2910a reporting form, effective for the June 30, 
2007, report date (1) replace data item 1, ``Total Deposits,'' with 
``Total Transaction Accounts, Savings Deposits, and Small Time 
Deposits;'' (2) delete the parenthetical text from data item 1, ``(If 
the amount reported for this item is less than or equal to $7.0 
million, Items 2 and 2.a need not be completed);'' (3) change the 
reporting form title from, ``Annual Report of Total Deposits and 
Reservable Liabilities,'' to ``Annual Report of Deposits and Reservable 
Liabilities;'' and (4) require depository institutions to submit either 
a positive or negative value in data item 2.a, ``Net Transaction 
Accounts,'' rather than reporting negative values as zero, as is 
currently required.
    3. Report title: Allocation of Low Reserve Tranche and Reservable 
Liabilities Exemption
    Agency form number: FR 2930/2930a
    OMB control number: 7100-0088
    Frequency: Annually and on occasion
    Reporters: Depository institutions
    Annual reporting hours: 40 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: 15 minutes
    Number of respondents: 160
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a), 461, 603, and 615) and is given 
confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).
    Abstract: The FR 2930 and FR 2930a collect data on the allocation 
of the low reserve tranche and reservable liabilities exemption amount 
for depository institutions having offices (or groups of offices) that 
file separate FR 2900 deposit reports. The FR 2930 is filed by U.S. 
branches and agencies of foreign banks and banking Edge and agreement 
corporations; the FR 2930a is filed by other types of depository 
institutions. Both reporting forms collect the same data. However, the 
instructions and explanatory information differ. These mandatory data 
are used to calculate the reserve requirement of an institution that 
submits separate FR 2900 data for two or more offices, that institution 
is required to allocate, using the FR 2930, the low reserve tranche and 
the exemption among those offices.
    Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to combine the FR 
2930 and FR 2930a into one reporting form (FR 2930) that would be used 
by any entity type (both foreign-related and domestic institutions). 
The instructions for the FR 2930 reporting form would be modified to 
reflect this change. The effective date of this revision would be 
September 30, 2006.

Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, without revision of the following report:

    1. Report title: Report of Foreign (Non-U.S.) Currency Deposits
    Agency form number: FR 2915
    OMB control number: 7100-0237
    Frequency: Quarterly
    Reporters: Depository institutions
    Annual reporting hours: 214 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: 30 minutes
    Number of respondents: 107
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(a)(2), and 347(d)) and is given confidential 
treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).

[[Page 26765]]

    Abstract: The FR 2915 collects seven-day averages of the amounts 
outstanding for foreign (non-U.S.) currency-denominated deposits held 
at U.S. offices of depository institutions, converted to U.S. dollars 
and included in the institution's FR 2900 data. Foreign currency 
deposits are subject to reserve requirements and, therefore, are 
included in the FR 2900 data submission. All weekly and quarterly FR 
2900 respondents offering foreign currency deposits file the six-item 
FR 2915 quarterly, on the same reporting schedule as quarterly FR 2900 
respondents. Data collected on the FR 2915 are mainly used in the 
construction of the monetary aggregates. These data are included in 
deposit data submitted on the FR 2900 for reserve requirement purposes, 
but they are not included in the monetary aggregates. The FR 2915 is 
the only source of data on such deposits.

    Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 2, 2006.

Secretary of the Board.
