Estimated average hours per response: 60 hours. Estimated number of respondents: 65. General description of report: This information collection is generally authorized under sections 2A and 12A of the Federal Reserve Act. Section 2A requires that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) maintain long run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates. 12 U.S.C. 225a. In addition, under section 12A of the Federal Reserve Act, the FOMC is required to implement regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks with a view to accommodating commerce and business and with regard to the regulations’ bearing upon the general credit situation of the country. 12 U.S.C. 263. The authority of the Federal Reserve to collect economic data to carry out the requirements of these provisions is implicit. Accordingly, the Federal Reserve is authorized to use the FR 3075 by sections 2A and 12A of the Federal Reserve Act. Additionally, depending upon the survey respondent, the information collection may be authorized under a more specific statute. Specifically, the Board is authorized to collect information from: BHCs (and their subsidiaries) under section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); SLHCs under section 10(b)(2) of the Home Owners Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)); non-BHC/SLHC SIFIs under section 161(a) of the DoddFrank Act (12 U.S.C. 5361(a)); the combined domestic operations of certain FBOs under section 8(a) of the International Banking Act of 1978 (12 U.S.C. 3106(a)) and section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); SMBs under section 9 of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 324); Edge and agreement corporations under sections 25 and 25A of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 602 and 625) and U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks under section 7(c)(2) of the International Banking Act of 1978 (12 U.S.C. 3105(c)(2) and under section 7(a) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(a)). The Federal Reserve expects the majority of surveys to be conducted on a voluntary basis. However, with respect to collections of information from BHCs PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (and their subsidiaries), SLHCs, nonBHC/SLHC SIFIs, the combined domestic operations of certain foreign banking organizations, state member banks, Edge and agreement corporations, and U.S. branches and agencies for foreign banks authorized under the specific statutes noted above, the Federal Reserve could make the obligation to respond mandatory. The ability of the Federal Reserve to maintain the confidentiality of information provided by respondents to the FR 3075 surveys will have to be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the type of information provided for a particular survey. Depending upon the survey questions, confidential treatment may be warranted under exemptions 4, 6, and 8 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Exemption 4 protects from disclosure trade secrets and commercial or financial information, while exemption 6 protects information ‘‘the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ See 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(6). If the survey is mandatory and is undertaken as part of the supervisory process, information could be protected under FOIA exemption 8, which protects information relating to examination reports. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). Abstract: The FR 3075 collects information from select institutions regulated by the Federal Reserve in order to assess the effects of proposed, pending, or recently-adopted policy changes at the domestic and international levels. For example, the survey collects information used for certain quantitative impact studies (QISs) sponsored by bodies such as the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the Financial Stability Board. Recent QISs have included the Basel III monitoring exercise, which monitors the global impact of the Basel III framework,1 and the global systemically important bank exercise, which assesses a firm’s systemic risk profile.2 Since the collected data may change from survey to survey, there is no fixed reporting form. The data submission timeline for each survey will be determined prior to the distribution of the survey materials. In soliciting participation, the Federal Reserve will explain to respondents the purpose of the survey and how the data will be used. While the number of respondents may fluctuate between 1 For more information on the Basel III monitoring exercise, see www.bis.org/bcbs/qis/. 2 For more information on the G–SIB exercise, see www.bis.org/bcbs/gsib/.

Proposed Project Promoting Adolescent Health through School-Based HIV/STD Prevention— New—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53427 Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requests a 3-year OMB approval to conduct a new information collection entitled, ‘‘Promoting Adolescent Health Through SchoolBased HIV/STD Prevention’’. The proposed project is a semi-annual Webbased questionnaire to assess programmatic activities among funded agencies which include local education agencies (LEA), state education agencies (SEA), and non-governmental organizations (NGO) funded by the Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Currently, the questionnaires are the only standardized reporting process for HIV/STD prevention activities among LEAs, SEAs, and NGOs funded by DASH. The data being gathered via the nine questionnaires: (1) Provides standardized information about how HIV/STD prevention funds are used by funded agencies; (2) provides descriptive and process information about program activities; and (3) provides greater accountability for use of public funds. The questionnaires are completed by the funded agencies on a Web site managed by DASH and its contractor, Karna. The questionnaires are to be completed on a semi-annual basis. The questionnaires pertain to the approaches that funded agencies are using to meet their goals. Approaches include helping districts and schools deliver exemplary sexual health education (ESHE) emphasizing HIV and other STD prevention; increasing adolescent access to key sexual health services (SHS); and establishing safe and supportive environments (SSE) for students and staff. There are a total of nine questionnaires that are included in the burden table below. Each SEA will be completing activities for all approaches. Therefore, each SEA will complete a questionnaire for each approach (ESHE, SHS, and SSE). Likewise, each LEA will be completing activities for all approaches. Therefore, each LEA will complete a questionnaire for each approach (ESHE, SHS, and SSE). Each NGO will respond to the questionnaire for the approach they are implementing in support of SEAs or LEAs. Two NGOs will respond to the ESHE questionnaire, two NGOs will respond to the SHS questionnaire, and two NGOs will respond to the SSE questionnaire. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The estimated annualized burden for all funded agencies is 820 hours. E:\FR\FM\09SEN1.SGM 09SEN1
