Under the PRA, federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for each collection of information they collect or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) as ‘‘the obtaining, causing to be obtained, soliciting * * * facts or opinions by or for any agency, regardless of form or format [from] ten or more persons.’’ An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register for each proposed collection of information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. Under OMB regulations, which implement provisions of the PRA, certain ‘‘facts or opinions that are submitted in response to a general solicitation of comments from the public, published in the Federal Register or other publications,’’ 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(4), or ‘‘facts or opinions obtained or solicited at or in connection with public hearings or meetings,’’ 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(8), are excluded from the OMB approval process. The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on August 16, 2012 (77 FR 49428). The Commission received no comments on this collection of information. In accordance with 7 U.S.C. 26, the CFTC is posing survey questions to the public. Questions included in the survey will inquire as to how often the respondents would like to receive content from CFTC, the format in which the respondents would like to receive information, and the topics the information should cover. The Office of Consumer Outreach develops campaigns to change consumer behaviors, so that consumers can better avoid fraud as defined under the Commodities Exchange Act. The first campaign from the Office of Consumer Outreach involves utilizing government and non-profit agency distribution methods to provide antifraud information to consumers. This survey will assist the Office of Consumer Outreach in determining how the government and non-profit agencies would like to receive the anti-fraud information from the CFTC. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be 10 minutes per response. This estimate includes the time to prepare the written or electronic SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CFR 145.9.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, federal agencies must obtain 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') for each 
collection of information they collect or sponsor. ``Collection of 
information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) as ``the obtaining, 
causing to be obtained, soliciting * * * facts or opinions by or for 
any agency, regardless of form or format [from] ten or more persons.'' 
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB 
control number.
    Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires 
federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register for 
each proposed collection of information before submitting the 
collection to OMB for approval. Under OMB regulations, which implement 
provisions of the PRA, certain ``facts or opinions that are submitted 
in response to a general solicitation of comments from the public, 
published in the Federal Register or other publications,'' 5 CFR 
1320.3(h)(4), or ``facts or opinions obtained or solicited at or in 
connection with public hearings or meetings,'' 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(8), are 
excluded from the OMB approval process. The Federal Register notice 
with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of 
information was published on August 16, 2012 (77 FR 49428). The 
Commission received no comments on this collection of information.
    In accordance with 7 U.S.C. 26, the CFTC is posing survey questions 
to the public. Questions included in the survey will inquire as to how 
often the respondents would like to receive content from CFTC, the 
format in which the respondents would like to receive information, and 
the topics the information should cover.
    The Office of Consumer Outreach develops campaigns to change 
consumer behaviors, so that consumers can better avoid fraud as defined 
under the Commodities Exchange Act. The first campaign from the Office 
of Consumer Outreach involves utilizing government and non-profit 
agency distribution methods to provide anti-fraud information to 
consumers. This survey will assist the Office of Consumer Outreach in 
determining how the government and non-profit agencies would like to 
receive the anti-fraud information from the CFTC. The respondent burden 
for this collection is estimated to be 10 minutes per response. This 
estimate includes the time to prepare the written or electronic

survey and transmit it to the Commission. The Commission estimates the 
average burden of this collection of information as follows:
