Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 245 / Thursday, December 20, 2012 / Notices notices for FMUs, the consistency of an advance notice with Title VIII may be judged principally by reference to the consistency of the advance notice with applicable rules of the Federal Reserve Board governing payment, clearing, and settlement activity of the designated FMU.15 Section 805(a) requires the Federal Reserve Board and authorizes the Commission to prescribe standards for the payment, clearing, and settlement activities of FMUs designated as systemically important, in consultation with the supervisory agencies. Section 805(b) of the Clearing Supervision Act 16 requires that the objectives and principles for the risk management standards prescribed under Section 805(a) shall be to: • Promote robust risk management; • Promote safety and soundness; • Reduce systemic risks; and • Support the stability of the broader financial system. The relevant rules of the Federal Reserve Board prescribing risk management standards for designated FMUs by their terms do not apply to designated FMUs that are clearing agencies registered with the Commission.17 Therefore, the Commission believes that the objectives and principles by which the Federal Reserve Board is required and the Commission is authorized to promulgate such rules, as expressed in Section 805(b) of Title VIII,18 are the appropriate standards at this time by which to evaluate advance notices.19 Accordingly, the analysis set forth below is organized by reference to the stated objectives and principles in Section 805(b). total size of the credit facilities to account for any collateral haircut that may be applied. This should assist OCC in maintaining market integrity in the event that one or more clearing members, settlement banks, or banks that issue letters of credit on behalf of clearing members as a form of margin fails to meet its obligations. By increasing the likelihood that OCC can take full advantage of its liquidity resources that are secured by the clearing fund, the proposed rule change should promote robust risk management and safety and soundness, reduce systemic risks, and support the stability of the broader financial system. For these reasons, the Commission does not object to the advance notice. IV. Conclusion It is therefore noticed, pursuant to Section 806(e)(1)(I) of the Clearing Supervision Act,20 that, the Commission does not object to proposed rule change (File No. AN–OCC–2012–04) and that OCC be and hereby is authorized to implement proposed rule change (File No. AN–OCC–2012–04) as of the date of this notice or the date of the ‘‘Order Approving Proposed Rule Change to Revise the Method for Determining the Minimum Clearing Fund Size to Include Consideration of the Amount Necessary to Draw on Secured Credit Facilities’’ (File No. SR–OCC–2012–22), whichever is later. By the Commission. Kevin M. O’Neill, Deputy Secretary. BILLING CODE 8011–01–P SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION The proposed rule change is designed to allow OCC to take full advantage of its liquidity resources that are secured by the clearing fund by collecting an amount that is at least 10% above the tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with Discussion of Advance Notice Hatteras Venture Partners IV SBIC, L.P.; Application No. 99000769; Notice Seeking Exemption Under Section 312 of the Small Business Investment Act, Conflicts of Interest 15 See Financial Market Utilities, 77 FR 45907 (Aug. 2, 2012). 16 12 U.S.C. 5464(b). 17 12 CFR 234.1(b). 18 12 U.S.C. 5464(b). 19 The risk management standards that have been adopted by the Commission in Rule 17Ad–22 are substantially similar to those of the Federal Reserve Board applicable to designated FMUs other than those designated clearing organizations registered with the CFTC or clearing agencies registered with the Commission. See Clearing Agency Standards, Securities Exchange Act Release No. 68080 (Oct. 22, 2012), 77 FR 66219 (Nov. 2, 2012). To the extent such Commission standards are in effect at the time advance notices are reviewed in the future, the standards would be relevant to the analysis. Moreover, the analysis of clearing agency rule filings under the Exchange Act would incorporate such standards directly.

OMB Control Number: 2126–0042. Type of Request: Revision of a currently-approved information collection request. Respondents: Federal, State, and industry customers/users. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,392. Estimated Time per Response: Five (5) minutes. Expiration Date: 11/30/2012. Frequency of Response: 4 times per year. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 283 hours [91 hours (273 industry user respondents × 5 minutes/60 minutes to complete survey × 4 times per year) + 192 hours (575 Federal and State government respondents × 5 minutes/60 minutes to complete survey × 4 times per year) = 283]. DATES: Background Title II, section 207 of the EGovernment Act of 2002 requires Government agencies to improve the methods by which Government information, including information on the Internet, is organized, preserved, and made accessible to the public. To meet this goal, FMCSA plans to provide PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a survey on the FMCSA Portal, allowing users to assess its functionality. This functionality includes the capability for Federal, State, and industry users to access the Agency’s existing safety IT systems with a single set of credentials and have easy access to safety data about the companies that do business with FMCSA. The IT program will also focus on improving the accuracy of data to help ensure information, such as carrier name and address, is valid and reliable. FMCSA’s legacy information systems are currently operational. However, having this many stand-alone systems has led to data quality concerns, a need for excessive identifications (IDs) and passwords, and significant operational and maintenance costs. Integrating our information technologies with our business processes will in turn, improve our operations considerably, particularly in terms of data quality, ease of use, and reduction of maintenance costs. In early 2007, FMCSA’s IT program launched a series of releases of a new FMCSA Portal to its Federal, State and Industry customers. Over the coming years, more than 15 releases are planned. These releases will use portal technology to fuse and provide numerous services and functions via a single user interface and provide tailored services that seek to meet the needs of specific constituencies within our customer universe. The FMCSA Information Technology Services Survey Portal will entail considerable expenditure of Federal Government dollars over the years and will fundamentally impact the nature of the relationship between the Agency and its Federal, State, and industry customers. Consequently, the Agency intends to conduct regular and ongoing assessments of customer satisfaction with the Information Technology Services Survey. The primary purposes of this assessment are to: • Determine the extent to which the FMCSA Portal functionality continues to meet the needs of Agency customers; • Identify and prioritize additional modifications; and • Determine the extent that the FMCSA Portal has impacted FMCSA’s relationships with its main customer groups. The assessment will address: • Overall customer satisfaction; • Customer satisfaction against specific items; • Performance of systems integrator against agreed objectives; • Desired adjustments and modifications to systems; E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1
