The data are needed to provide reliable, useful, and timely measures of foreign direct investment in the United States, assess its impact on the U.S. economy, and based upon this assessment, make informed policy decisions regarding foreign direct investment in the United States. The data are used to derive annual estimates of the operations of U.S. affiliates of foreign investors, including their balance sheets; income statements; property, plant, and equipment; employment and employee compensation; merchandise trade; sales of goods and services; taxes; and research and development activity. In addition, data covering employment are collected by state. The data are also used to update similar data for the universe of U.S. affiliates collected once every five years on the BE–12 benchmark survey. No changes in the data collected or in exemption levels are proposed. The BE–15 annual survey is sent to potential respondents in March of each year. A completed report covering a reporting company’s fiscal year ending during the previous calendar year is due by May 31. Reports must be filed by every U.S. business enterprise that is owned 10 percent or more by a foreign investor and that has total assets, sales or gross operating revenues, or net income (or loss) of over $40 million. As an alternative to filing paper forms, BEA will offer an electronic filing option, its eFile system, for use in reporting on Form BE–15. For more information about eFile, go to http:// www.bea.gov/efile. Potential respondents are those U.S. business enterprises that reported in the 2007 benchmark survey of foreign direct investment in the United States, along with businesses that subsequently entered the direct investment universe. The BE–15 is a sample survey, as described; universe estimates are developed from the reported sample data. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Annual. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. OMB Desk Officer: Paul Bugg, (202) 395–3093.
