Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 46490-46491 [07-4045]

Download as PDF 46490 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 160 / Monday, August 20, 2007 / Notices pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Model Confidentiality Agreement Provisions (For Use in the Case of Investment Management Activities). As noted above, blank copies of each of these model documents are posted on OGE’s Web site. The communications formats and the confidentiality agreements (items ii. (A), (I) and (J) above), once completed, would not be available to the public because they contain sensitive, confidential information. All the other completed model trust certificates and model trust documents (except for any trust provisions that relate to the testamentary disposition of trust assets) are publicly available based upon a proper Ethics Act request (by filling out an OGE Form 201 access form). Reporting Burden The Office of Government Ethics administers the qualified trust program for the executive branch. Therefore, the estimated burden figures provided below represent branchwide implementation of the forms. The estimated hour burden, which remains the same as last indicated by OGE in its prior second round paperwork renewal notice in 2005 (70 FR 31471–31472 June 1, 2005), is based on the amount of time imposed on a trust administrator or private representative. i. Trust Certificates: A. Certificate of Independence: Total filers (executive branch): 5; private citizen filers (100%): 5; private citizen burden hours (20 minutes/certificate): 2. B. Certificate of Compliance: Total filers (executive branch): 10; private citizen filers (100%): 10; private citizen burden hours (20 minutes/certificate): 3; and ii. Model Qualified Trust Documents: A. Blind Trust Communications: Total users (executive branch): 5; private citizen users (100%): 5; communications documents (private citizens): 25 (based on an average of five communications per user, per year); private citizen burden hours (20 minutes/communication): 8. B. Model Qualified Blind Trust: Total users (executive branch): 2; private citizen users (100%): 2; private citizen burden hours (100 hours/model): 200. C. Model Qualified Diversified Trust: Total users (executive branch): 1; private citizen users (100%): 1; private citizen burden hours (100 hours/model): 100. D.–H. Of the five remaining model qualified trust documents: total users (executive branch): 2; private citizen users (100%): 2; private citizen burden hours (100 hours/model): 200. I.–J. Of the two model confidentiality agreements: total users (executive VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:53 Aug 17, 2007 Jkt 211001 branch): 1; private citizen users (100%): 1; private citizen burden hours (50 hours/agreement): 50. However, the total annual reporting hour burden on filers themselves is zero and not the 563 hours estimated above because OGE’s estimating methodology reflects the fact that all respondents hire private trust administrators or other private representatives to set up and maintain the qualified blind and diversified trusts. Respondents themselves, typically incoming private citizen Presidential nominees, therefore incur no hour burden. The estimated total annual cost burden to respondents resulting from the collection of information is $1,000,000. Those who use the model documents for guidance are private trust administrators or other private representatives hired to set up and maintain the qualified blind and diversified trusts of executive branch officials who seek to establish qualified trusts. The cost burden figure is based primarily on OGE’s knowledge of the typical trust administrator fee structure (an average of 1 percent of total assets) and OGE’s experience with administration of the qualified trust program. The $1,000,000 annual cost figure is based on OGE’s estimate of an average of five active trusts anticipated to be under administration for each of the next two years with combined total assets of $100,000,000. However, OGE notes that the $1,000,000 figure is a cost estimate for the overall administration of the trusts, only a portion of which relates to information collection and reporting. For want of a precise way to break out the costs directly associated with information collection, OGE is continuing to report to OMB the full $1,000,000 estimate for paperwork clearance purposes. Consideration of Comments On May 14, 2007, OGE published a first round notice of its intent to request paperwork clearance for the proposed unmodified qualified trust certificates and model trust documents. See 72 FR 27132–27134. OGE received only one response to that notice, which was critical of the Government, and provided no specific comment about the proposed renewal of these documents. In this second notice, public comment is again invited on the qualified trust certificates and model trust documents, and underlying regulatory provisions, as set forth in this notice, including specific views on the need for and practical utility of this set of collections of information, the accuracy of OGE’s burden estimate, the potential for enhancement of quality, utility and clarity of the information collected, and PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the minimization of burden (including the use of information technology). The Office of Government Ethics, in consultation with OMB, will consider all comments received, which will become a matter of public record. Approved: August 13, 2007. Robert I. Cusick, Director, Office of Government Ethics. [FR Doc.
