Proposal To Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for Three Years, With Revision, of the Following Report Report title: Survey of Terms of Lending. Agency form number: FR 2028A, FR 2028B, and FR 2028S. OMB control number: 7100–0061. Frequency: Quarterly. Reporters: Commercial banks and U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks (FR 2028A and FR 2028S only). Estimated annual reporting hours: 7,438 hours. Estimated average hours per response: FR 2028A, 3.65 hours; FR 2028B, 1.4 hours; and FR 2028S, 0.1 hours. Number of respondents: FR 2028A, 398; FR 2028B, 250; and FR 2028S, 567. General description of report: This information collection is authorized by section 11(a)(2) of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 248(a)(2)) and is voluntary.

Abstract: The Survey of Terms of Lending collects unique information concerning price and certain nonprice terms of loans made to businesses and farmers during the first full business week of the mid-month of each quarter (February, May, August, and November). The survey comprises three reporting forms: the FR 2028A, Survey of Terms of Business Lending; the FR 2028B, Survey of Terms of Bank Lending to Farmers; and the FR 2028S, Prime Rate Supplement to the Survey of Terms of Lending. The FR 2028A and FR 2028B collect detailed data on individual loans made during the survey week, and the FR 2028S collects the prime interest rate for each day of the survey from both FR 2028A and FR 2028B respondents. From these sample STL data, estimates of the terms of business loans and farm loans extended during the reporting week are constructed. The aggregate estimates for business loans are published in the quarterly E.2 release, Survey of Terms of Business Lending, and aggregate estimates for farm loans are published in the E.15 release, Agricultural Finance Databook. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the FR 2028A by adding four columns: a data item to denote if the loan was guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA), a data item to indicate if the loan was made under either participation or syndication, the RSSD ID of the branch that originated each loan, and the loan origination fee in dollars. The Federal Reserve further proposes to raise the minimum loan size reported from $7,500 to $10,000. The minimum loan size on the FR 2028B will remain $3,000, as the mean and median loan sizes reported on that survey are significantly smaller than those reported on the business loan survey. The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the FR 2028B by also adding a column to collect the RSSD ID of the branch that originated each loan. The proposed revisions would be implemented effective for the February 2012 survey week. No changes are proposed to the FR 2028S. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, October 7, 2011.

The proposed revisions would be implemented effective for the February 
2012 survey week. No changes are proposed to the FR 2028S.
