Michelle Shore, Federal Reserve Board Clearance Officer (202–452– 3829), Division of Research and Statistics, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Washington, DC 20551. Telecommunications Device for the Deaf (TDD) users may contact (202–263–4869). Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the implementation of the following survey: Report title: Senior Credit Officer Opinion Survey on Dealer Financing Terms. Agency form number: FR 2034. OMB control number: 7100-to be assigned. Frequency: Up to six times a year. Reporters: U.S. banking institutions and U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks. Estimated annual reporting hours: 450 hours. Estimated average hours per response: 3 hours. Number of respondents: 25. General description of report: This information collection would be voluntary (12 U.S.C. 225a, 248(a)(2), 1844(c), and 3105(c)(2)) and would be given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: This voluntary survey would be conducted with a senior credit officer at each respondent financial institution up to six times a year. The proposed reporting panel consists of up to 25 U.S. banking institutions and U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks, the majority of which are affiliated with a Primary Government Securities Dealer 1. The purpose of the proposed survey is to provide qualitative and limited quantitative information on (1) stringency of credit terms, (2) credit availability and demand across the entire range of securities financing and over-the-counter derivatives transactions, and (3) the evolution of market conditions and conventions applicable to such activities. The proposed survey is significantly modeled after the long-established Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey (FR 2018; OMB No. 7100–0058), which provides qualitative information on changes in the supply of, and demand for, bank loans to businesses and households. A portion of the questions in each administration of the new survey would typically cover special topics of timely interest; however, the 1 A list of the current Primary Dealers in Government Securities is available at http:// www.newyorkfed.org/markets/ pridealers_current.html. VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:23 Dec 14, 2009 Jkt 220001 sample survey form includes 38 core questions. Although the Federal Reserve seeks the authority to conduct the survey up to six times a year, the survey is expected to be conducted only four times a year consistent with the FR 2018. The estimated maximum annual burden, based on six surveys, is 450 hours. Consistent with the FR 2018, other types of respondents, such as other depository institutions, bank holding companies, or other financial entities, may be surveyed if appropriate. The respondents’ answers are intended to provide information critical to the Federal Reserve’s monitoring of credit markets and capital market activity. As is currently the case with FR 2018, aggregate results from this survey are expected to be made available to the public on the Federal Reserve Board website. Selected aggregate information from the surveys may also be published annually in Federal Reserve Bulletin articles and in the Monetary Policy Report to the Congress.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of the 
clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, e-mail 
paperwork@hrsa.gov or call the HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301)

    The following request has been submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995:

Proposed Project: Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) and 
Nurse Anesthetist Traineeship (NAT) (OMB No. 0915-0305) [Extension]

    The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) provides 
training grants to educational institutions to increase the numbers of 
advanced education nurses through the Advanced Education Nursing 
Traineeship (AENT) program and the Nurse Anesthetist Traineeship (NAT) 
program.
    HRSA developed the AENT and NAT tables for the application 
guidances and the Nurse Traineeship Database for the two nursing 
traineeship programs. The AENT and NAT tables are used annually by 
grant applicants that are applying for AENT and NAT funding. The funds 
appropriated for the AENT and NAT programs are distributed among 
eligible institutions based on a formula. Award amounts are based on 
enrollment and graduate data reported on the tables and two funding 
factors (Statutory Funding Preference and Statutory Special 
Consideration).
    The AENT and NAT tables include information on program participants 
such as the number of enrollees, projected data on enrollees and 
graduates for the following academic year, number of trainees 
supported, number of graduates, number of graduates supported and the 
types of programs they are enrolling into and/or from which they are 
graduating. AENT and NAT applicants will have a single access point to 
submit their grant applications including the tables. Applications are 
submitted in two phases: Grants.gov (Phase 1) and the HRSA Electronic 
Handbooks (Phase 2). These tables will be available electronically 
through the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (Phase 2) for applicants to 
submit their AENT and/or NAT grant application(s). The tables are also 
used in the Nurse Traineeship Database which is used by Division of 
Nursing staff and not the applicants.
    Data from the tables will be used in the award determination and 
validation process. Additionally, the data will be used to ensure 
programmatic compliance, report to Congress and policymakers on the 
program accomplishments, and formulate and justify future budgets for 
these activities submitted to OMB and Congress.
    The burden estimate for this project is as follows: AENT increased 
from 1 hour to 1.5 hours due to the revisions of AENT Tables 1, 2, 3 
and 4 to capture comprehensive data to provide for more detailed data 
analysis of the AENT Program.
