Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 159 / Friday, August 17, 2007 / Notices ebenthall on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Affected Public: 25 to 30 FDICinsured depository institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 25 to 30 FDIC-insured depository institutions. Estimated Time per Response: Exploratory interview—1 hour; in-depth interview—2.5 hours. Estimated Total Burden: 30 hours + 75 hours = 105 hours. Total burden for this collection: 432.5 hours + 105 hours = 537.5 hours. General Description of Collection The FDIC has a number of initiatives underway to encourage practical solutions to ensure that all consumers have reasonable access to full service banking and other financial services. The FDIC believes that insured depositories can provide a path into the financial mainstream for those who need these financial services, and that depository institutions can create an array of affordable lending services to meet the needs of all their customers. Currently a large segment of the population relies on a mix of non-bank financial service providers for their needs. The FDIC is undertaking a series of analyses in this area, including the proposed National Survey of Banks’ Efforts to Serve the Unbanked and Underbanked. The survey is mandated by section 7 of the Reform Act, which calls for the FDIC to conduct ongoing surveys ‘‘on efforts by insured depository institutions to bring those individuals and families who have rarely, if ever, held a checking account, a savings account or other type of transaction or check cashing account at an insured depository institution (hereafter in this section referred to as the ‘‘unbanked’’) into the conventional finance system.’’ In this initial survey effort, the FDIC plans to survey FDIC-insured depository institutions on their efforts to serve underbanked as well as unbanked populations. The survey will consist of two components—a questionnaire survey of a sample of FDIC-insured depository institutions and a limited number of case studies of FDIC-insured depository institutions that are employing innovative methods to serve unbanked and underbanked populations. The Reform Act mandates that the FDIC consider the following factors and questions in conducting the survey: ‘‘(A) To what extent do insured depository institutions promote financial education and financial literacy outreach? ‘‘(B) Which financial education efforts appear to be the most effective in bringing ‘unbanked’ individuals and VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:36 Aug 16, 2007 Jkt 211001 families into the conventional finance system? ‘‘(C) What efforts are insured institutions making at converting ‘unbanked’ money order, wire transfer, and international remittance customers into conventional account holders? ‘‘(D) What cultural, language and identification issues as well as transaction costs appear to most prevent ‘unbanked’ individuals from establishing conventional accounts? ‘‘(E) What is a fair estimate of the size and worth of the ‘unbanked’ market in the United States?’’ In addition to these mandated objectives, in its questionnaire survey of a sample of FDIC-insured depository institutions, the FDIC seeks to identify and quantify the extent to which institutions serve the needs of the unbanked and underbanked; identify the characteristics of institutions that are reaching out to and serving the unbanked and underbanked; identify efforts (for example, practices, programs, alliances) of institutions to serve the unbanked and underbanked; and identify potential barriers that affect the ability of institutions to serve the unbanked and underbanked. The objectives of the case studies are to identify and share ‘‘best practice’’ programs and practices that appear to be the most effective in bringing unbanked and underbanked populations into the financial mainstream, particularly the federally-insured financial institutions. The case studies will be designed to collect information on the size and scope of programs, the nature of service offerings, program budgets, and results. Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The FDIC will consider all comments to determine the extent to which the proposed information collection should be modified prior to submission to OMB for review and approval. After the comment period closes, comments will be summarized or included in the FDIC’s request to OMB for approval of the collection. All comments will become a matter of public record.
