The regulatory provision contains the following information collection requirements: (1) A fiduciary adviser must furnish an initial disclosure that provides detailed information to participants about an advice arrangement before initially providing investment advice; (2) a fiduciary adviser must annually engage an independent auditor to audit the investment advice arrangement for compliance with the regulation; (3) if the fiduciary adviser provides the investment advice through the use of a computer model, then—before providing the advice—the fiduciary adviser must obtain a written certification from an eligible investment expert as to the computer model’s compliance with certain standards (e.g., applies generally accepted investment theories, unbiased operation, and objective criteria) set forth in the regulation; and (4) a fiduciary adviser must maintain records with respect to the investment advice provided in reliance on the regulation necessary to determine whether the applicable requirements of the regulation have been satisfied.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Investment Advice Participants and Beneficiaries information 
collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 2550-408g-1. The 
regulatory provision contains the following information collection 
requirements: (1) A fiduciary adviser must furnish an initial 
disclosure that provides detailed information to participants about an 
advice arrangement before initially providing investment advice; (2) a 
fiduciary adviser must annually engage an independent auditor to audit 
the investment advice arrangement for compliance with the regulation; 
(3) if the fiduciary adviser provides the investment advice through the 
use of a computer model, then--before providing the advice--the 
fiduciary adviser must obtain a written certification from an eligible 
investment expert as to the computer model's compliance with certain 
standards (e.g., applies generally accepted investment theories, 
unbiased operation, and objective criteria) set forth in the 
regulation; and (4) a fiduciary adviser must maintain records with 
respect to the investment advice provided in reliance on the regulation 
necessary to determine whether the applicable requirements of the 
regulation have been satisfied. Employee Retirement Income Security Act 
of 1974 sections 408(b)(14) and 408(g) authorize this information 
collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1108(b)(14), 1108(g).
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1210-0134.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on October 31, 2014. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection

while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about 
this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on

    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section by December 1, 2014. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number

necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency,
