General description of report: This information collection is mandatory pursuant to section 304 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (FDICIA) (12 U.S.C. 1828(o)) which authorizes the Federal Reserve to require the recordkeeping requirements associated with the Board’s Regulation H (12 CFR 208.51). Since the information is not collected by the Federal Reserve, no issue of confidentiality under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) arises. However, information gathered by the Federal Reserve during examinations of state member banks would be deemed exempt from disclosure under exemption 8 of FOIA. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). In addition, exemptions 4 and 6 of FOIA, (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(6)) also may apply to certain data (specifically, individual loans identified as in excess of supervisory loan-to-value limits) collected in response to these requirements if gathered by the Federal Reserve, depending on the particular circumstances. These exemptions relate to confidential commercial and financial information, and personal information, respectively. Applicability of these exemptions would be determined on a case-by-case basis. Abstract: State member banks must adopt and maintain a written real estate lending policy. Also, banks must identify their loans in excess of the supervisory loan-to-value limits and report (at least quarterly) the aggregate amount of the loans to the bank’s board of directors.

Number of respondents: FR 28: 3,500; FR 28s: 2,000; FR 28i: 300. General description of report: This information collection is required to obtain a benefit and is authorized pursuant to Sections 10 and 11 of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 244 and 248(1)). Information provided will be kept confidential under exemption (b)(6) of the FOIA to the extent that the disclosure of information ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6). Abstract: The Application collects information to determine the qualifications and availability of applicants for employment with the Board such as information on education and training, employment record, military service record, and other information since the time the applicant left high school. Included with the Application are two supplemental questionnaires: (1) The Applicant’s Voluntary Self-Identification Form (FR 28s), which collects information on the applicant’s gender and ethnic group and (2) The Research Assistant Candidate Survey of Interests (FR 28i), which collects information from candidates applying for Research Assistant positions on their level of interest in economics and related areas.

No issue of confidentiality normally arises because names and any other characteristics that would permit personal identification of respondents are not reported to the Federal Reserve Board. However, exemption 6 of the FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)) would exempt this information from disclosure. Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses this voluntary survey to obtain household-based information specifically tailored to the Federal Reserve’s policy, regulatory, and operational responsibilities.

The Federal Reserve primarily uses the survey to study consumer financial decisions, attitudes, and payment behavior. Current Actions: On November 19, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 70919) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the Intermittent Survey of Households.
