The pay raise factors provided for 2007 and beyond shall be applied to all government personnel with no assumption being made as to how they will be distributed between possible locality and base pay increases. FEDERAL PAY RAISE ASSUMPTIONS* Civilian (percent) Efective date January 2006 .... January 2007 .... Military (percent) 3.1 2.2 3.1 2.7 * Federal pay raise assumptions have not been established for pay raises subsequent to January 2007. For January 2008 and beyond, the projected percentage change in the Employment Cost Index (ECI), 4.2 percent, should be used to estimate government personnel costs for public-private competitions. In future updates to cost factors in the Circular, as pay policy for years subsequent to 2007 is established, these pay raise assumptions will be revised. Inflation Factors The following non-pay inflation cost factors are provided for purposes of publicprivate competitions conducted pursuant to Circular A–76 only. They reflect the generic non-pay inflation assumptions used to develop the fiscal year 2007 budget baseline estimates required by law. The law requires that a specific inflation factor (GDP FY/FY chained price index) be used for this purpose. These inflation factors should not be viewed as estimates of expected inflation rates for major long-term procurement items or as an estimate of inflation for any particular agency’s non-pay purchases mix.

The Code of Federal Regulation citation to this collection of information is the following rule: 17 CFR 240.17i–8. Section 231 of the Gramm-LeachBliley Act of 1999.2 (the ‘‘GLBA’’) amended Section 17 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to create a regulatory framework under which a holding company of a broker-dealer (‘‘investment bank holding company’’ or ‘‘IBHC’’) may voluntarily be supervised by the Commission as a supervised investment bank holding company (or ‘‘SIBHC’’).3 In 2004, the Commission promulgated rules, including Rule 17i– 8, to create a framework for the Commission to supervise SIBHCs.4 This framework includes qualification criteria for SIBHCs, as well as recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Among other things, this regulatory framework for SIBHCs is intended to provide a basis for non-U.S. financial regulators to treat the Commission as the principal U.S. consolidated, home-country supervisor for SIBHCs and their affiliated brokerdealers.5 Pursuant to Section 17(i)(3)(A) of the Exchange Act, an SIBHC must make and keep records, furnish copies thereof, and make such reports as the 1 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.
