SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract and Request for Comments

    NCUA is renewing the currently approved collection for 3133-0185. 
The collection includes the NCUA Vendor Registration Form (NCUA 1772) 
and instructions for completing the form. Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank 
Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (The ``Dodd-Frank Act'') 
calls for NCUA (the ``Agency'') to promote the inclusion of minority-
owned and women-owned firms in the Agency's business activities. The 
Dodd-Frank Act also requires NCUA to annually report to Congress the 
total amounts paid to minority- and women-owned businesses. In order to 
comply with this Congressional mandate, NCUA needs to collect certain 
information from its current and potential vendors, so that it can 
identify businesses that meet the criteria that must be reported to 
Congress. Without the use of the vendor registration form, NCUA would 
not be able to capture the type of information that Congress is 
requiring under the Dodd-Frank Act. The section within the Dodd-Frank 
Act that makes it necessary to collect this information is as follows: 
Section 342(e)(2) Reports--Each office shall submit to Congress an 
annual report regarding the actions taken by the agency and the Office 
pursuant to this section, which shall include--the percentage of the 
amounts described in paragraph (1) that were paid to contractors 
described in subsection (c)(1) [minority-owned and women-owned 
businesses]. The vendor information is to be submitted to the agency on 
a one-time basis through a one-page vendor form. The one-page form is 
brief and asks for simple, readily available information. Additionally, 
NCUA plans to make this registration available electronically in a 
format that allows vendors to complete and submit online, without 
requiring any printing, manual entries, or faxing. The information 
provided will be used to assign an ownership status to the vendor 
(i.e., minority-owned business, woman-owned business) per the 
requirements of the Act. Once an ownership status is assigned to each 
vendor, NCUA will be able to calculate the total amounts of contracting 
dollars paid to minority-owned and women-owned businesses. There is no 
change in burden hours or cost from NCUA's last submission.
    The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to 
the location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should 
address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper 
performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have 
practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden 
(hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents such as through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the 
public for review. Comments submitted in response to this notice will 
be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All 
comments will become a matter of public record.
