ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) has approved the private sector adjustment factor (PSAF) for 2013 of $14.1 million and the 2013 fee schedules for Federal Reserve priced services and electronic access. These actions were taken in accordance with the requirements of the Monetary Control Act of 1980, which requires that, over the long run, fees for Federal Reserve priced services be established on the basis of all direct and indirect costs, including the PSAF. DATES: The new fee schedules become effective January 2, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions regarding the fee schedules: Susan V.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Private Sector Adjustment Factor and Priced Services A. Overview—Each year, as required by the Monetary Control Act of 1980, the Reserve Banks set fees for priced services provided to depository institutions. These fees are set to recover, over the long run, all direct and indirect costs and imputed costs, including financing costs, taxes, and certain other expenses, as well as the return on equity (profit) that would have been earned if a private business firm provided the services. The imputed costs and imputed profit are collectively referred to as the PSAF.1 From 2002 through 2011, the Reserve Banks recovered 98.6 percent of their total expenses (including imputed costs) and targeted after-tax profits or return on equity (ROE) for providing priced services.23 1 The methodology for computing imputed profit and imputed costs was changed for 2013 (see Attachment I). This change follows the elimination of the clearing balance program (77 FR 21846, April 12, 2012). In the 2012 methodology, investment income is imputed and netted with related direct costs associated with clearing balances to estimate net income on clearing balances (NICB). 2 The ten-year recovery rate is based on the pro forma income statement for Federal Reserve priced services published in the Board’s Annual Report. Effective December 31, 2006, the Reserve Banks implemented Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 158: Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans [Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 715 Compensation—Retirement Benefits], which resulted in recognizing a reduction in equity related to the priced services’ benefit plans. Including this reduction in equity results in cost recovery of 95.3 percent for the ten-year period. This measure of long-run cost recovery is also published in the Board’s Annual Report. 3 Over this period, the Reserve Banks have undertaken a range of cost-reduction and revenuegeneration initiatives as part of their long-term business strategy. These initiatives have included streamlining management structures, reducing E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1
