SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OTS may not conduct or sponsor an information collection, and respondents are not required to respond to an information collection, unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number. As part of the approval process, we invite comments on the following information collection. Comments should address one or more of the following points: a. Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of OTS; b. The accuracy of OTS’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; d. Ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of information technology. We will summarize the comments that we receive and include them in the OTS request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this notice, OTS is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection. Title of Proposal: General Reporting and Recordkeeping by Savings Associations and Savings and Loan Holding Companies. OMB Number: 1550–0011. Form Number: N/A. Description: This information collection relates to reports and records required by the following regulations: 12 CFR 552.11 (books and records, federal stock associations), 12 CFR 545.96(c) (agency business records, federal stock associations), 12 CFR 544.8 (communications between members of a federal mutual savings association), 12 CFR 562.1 (regulatory reporting requirements, each savings association and its affiliates), 12 CFR 563.1 (chartering documents, each savings association), 12 CFR 563.47(e) (pension jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:46 Mar 22, 2011 Jkt 223001 plans, each savings association or service corporation), 12 CFR 572.6(b) (standard flood hazard determination form, each savings association), 12 CFR 562.4 (audit of savings association, savings and loan holding company, or affiliate), 12 CFR 563.76(c) (offers and sales of securities of a savings association or its affiliates in any office of the savings association), 12 CFR 584.1(f) (books and records of each savings and loan holding company), 12 CFR part 226 (Regulation Z, truth in lending), 12 CFR part 202 (Regulation B, Equal Credit Opportunity Act), 12 CFR part 205 (Regulation E, electronic fund transfers), and 12 CFR part 213 (Regulation M, consumer leasing). Savings associations use the reports and records that the regulations require for internal management control purposes and examiners use them to determine whether savings associations are being operated safely, soundly, and in compliance with regulations. An absence of the reporting and record keeping requirements would not allow for prudent internal controls or for examiners to determine the accurate performance and condition of savings associations. Specifically, OTS examiners use the reports and record keeping requirements to determine whether the savings associations are being operated safely, soundly, and in compliance with regulations. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 741. Estimated Frequency of Response: On occasion and annually. Estimated Total Burden: 3,623,349 hours. Dated: March 17, 2011. Ira L. Mills, Paperwork Clearance Officer, Office of Chief Counsel, Office of Thrift Supervision.
