Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 29, 2014 / Notices (D) Lender Risk Rating The SBA Lender Risk Rating (LRR) is a measure of predicted performance over the next 12 months. SBA uses its Risk Rating model to calculate an expected purchase rate and assign a composite rating of 1 to 5 to each SBA Lender. SBA may make adjustments to the composite rating based on results of reviews, third party information on an SBA Lender’s operations, portfolio trends, and other information that could impact an SBA Lender’s risk profile. (See section E ‘‘Overriding Factors’’ for further detail.) In general, a rating of 1 indicates least risk, and that the least degree of SBA oversight is likely needed, while a 5 rating indicates highest risk, and that the highest degree of SBA oversight is likely needed. Rating categories 2, 3, and 4 provide granularity for moderate levels of risk and the corresponding levels of necessary oversight. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES (E) Overriding Factors As with prior LRR models, the redeveloped Risk Rating System allows for consideration of additional factors. The occurrence of these factors may lead SBA to conclude that an individual SBA Lender’s composite rating, as calculated by the Risk Rating model, is not fully reflective of its true risk. Therefore, the Risk Rating System provides for the consideration of overriding factors, which may only apply to a particular SBA Lender or group of SBA Lenders, and permit SBA to adjust an SBA Lender’s calculated composite rating. The allowance of overriding factors in helping determine an SBA Lender’s Risk Rating enables SBA to use key risk factors that are not necessarily applicable to all SBA Lenders, but indicate a greater or lower level of risk from a particular SBA Lender than that which the calculated rating provides. Overriding factors may result from SBA Lenders’ risk-based reviews/ examinations and evaluations. SBA routinely conducts reviews of larger SBA Lenders, performs safety and soundness examinations of SBA Small Business Lending Companies (SBLCs) and Non-Federally Regulated Lenders (NFRLs), and uses certain evaluation measures for other SBA Lenders. Examples of other overriding factors that may be considered include, but are not limited to: enforcement or other actions of regulators or other authorities, including, but not limited to, Cease & Desist orders by, or related agreements with, federal financial regulators; capital adequacy levels not in conformity with federal financial regulators; secondary VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Apr 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 market issues and concerns; early loan default trends; purchase rate or projected purchase rate trends; abnormally high default, purchase or liquidation rates; denial of liability occurrences; lending concentrations; rapid growth of SBA lending; net yield rate significantly worse than average; violation of SBA Loan Program Requirements; inadequate, incomplete, or untimely reporting to SBA; and inaccurate submission of required fees or amounts due SBA or the federal government. In conclusion, industry best practices and changes in the SBA portfolio, programs, and available data necessitate that SBA’s Risk Rating model be periodically redeveloped. This notice marks the second redevelopment of SBA’s Risk Rating model. In addition to the redevelopment, SBA has and will continue to perform annual validation testing on the calculated composite Risk Ratings, and will further refine the model as necessary to maintain or possibly improve the predictiveness of its risk scoring.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew a generic information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on February 11, 2014, vol. 79, no. 28, pages 8232– 8233.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by May 29, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathy DePaepe at (405) 954–9362, or by email at: Kathy.DePaepe@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 2120–0746. Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this generic information collection. Type of Review: Renewal of a generic information collection. Background: The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: the target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1 24058 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 29, 2014 / Notices collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results.

Title: Performance and Handling Requirements for Rotorcraft. Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this collection. Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: In order to determine that a rotorcraft is a safe vehicle, an applicant for a type certificate must show compliance to specific minimum requirements. In order to show compliance, an applicant must substantiate the type design through analysis, testing, design limitations, and other acceptable means. This requires that certain performance information for safe operation of the rotorcraft be presented, in the form of tables, diagrams, or charts, in the flight manual. FAA engineers and designated engineers review the data submittals to determine that the rotorcraft complies with the applicable minimum safety requirements for rotorcraft performance and that the rotorcraft has no unsafe features.
