Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 109 / Tuesday, June 9, 2009 / Notices Reserve. In circumstances where identifying information is provided to the Federal Reserve, such information could possibly be protected from Freedom of Information Act disclosure by FOIA exemptions 4 and 6 (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (6)). The Federal Reserve Board’s Microeconomic Surveys section in the Division of Research and Statistics is an official statistical unit, as defined under the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (CIPSEA) of 2002 (44 U.S.C. 3501). When information is collected by a private contractor under the oversight of that section, there are stringent requirements for protecting the data and respondents may be given a legally binding pledge of confidentiality. The pledge would disallow any use of the data for a nonstatistical purpose.1 When the Federal Reserve collects data directly (that is, without the use of a private data collection company or other such agent), respondents may also be offered such a pledge if the data are intended for a statistical purpose. Abstract: The Federal Reserve would use this event-driven survey to obtain information specifically tailored to the Federal Reserve’s supervisory, regulatory, operational, and other responsibilities. The Federal Reserve proposes to conduct the FR 3051 up to 13 times per year (including one survey on an annual basis and another on a monthly basis). The frequency and content of the questions would depend on changing economic, regulatory, or legislative developments. Current Actions: On March 30, 2009, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (74 FR 14126) requesting public comment for 60 days on the implementation of the Microeconomic Survey. The comment period for this notice expired on May 29, 2009. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments; the survey will be implemented as proposed. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, June 4, 2009. Jennifer J. Johnson, Secretary of the Board. [FR Doc. E9–13412 Filed 6–8–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6210–01–P 1 ‘‘Non-statistical’’ is defined precisely in CIPSEA. Loosely, an information collection undertaken for a non-statistical purpose would be one intended to support a regulatory action or other action specifically targeted to the entity on which data were collected.
