The FGP makes available export credit guarantees to encourage U.S. private sector financing of foreign purchases of U.S. goods and services on credit terms. The CCC has not yet made announcements for the FGP this year. The FGP information collection is similar to those for the Export Credit Guarantee Program (GSM–102) (OMB emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:27 Jul 01, 2010 Jkt 220001 control number 0551–0004). The information collection for the FGP differs primarily from GSM–102 as follows: (1) The applicant, in order to receive a payment guarantee, provides information evidencing that the exported goods and services used to develop improved infrastructure will primarily benefit exports of U.S. agricultural commodities and products; and (2) The applicant is required to certify that the value of non-U.S. components of goods and services is less than 50 percent of the contract value covered under the payment guarantee. In addition, each exporter and exporter’s assignee (U.S. financial institution) must maintain records on all information submitted to CCC and in connection with sales made under the FGP. The information collected is used by CCC to manage, plan, evaluate and account for government resources. The reports and records are required to ensure the proper and judicious use of public funds. Estimate of Burden: The public reporting burden for these collections is estimated to average 12 hours per response. Respondents: Exporters of U.S. agricultural commodities, banks or other financial institutions, producer associations, export trade associations, and U.S. Government agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 5 per annum. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 6 per annum. Estimated Total Annual Burden of Respondents: 360 hours. Requests for Comments: Send comments regarding: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
