SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM Proposed Information Collection Activities Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, federal agencies must get OMB approval for each collection of information they conduct, sponsor, or require. ‘‘Collection of information’’ means agency requests or requirements to submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 44 U.S.C. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68245 3502(3); 5 CFR 1320.3(c). As required by section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the FTC is providing this opportunity for public comment before requesting that OMB extend the existing PRA clearance for the information collection requirements pertaining to the Commission’s administrative activities (OMB Control Number 3084–0047). The Commission’s Administrative Activities clearance consists of: (a) Applications to the Commission, including applications and notices contained in the Commission’s Rules of Practice (primarily Parts I, II, and IV); (b) the FTC’s consumer complaint systems; and (c) FTC program evaluation activities. The FTC invites comments on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond. All comments must be received on or before January 13, 2015. Estimated annual hours burden: 223,101 hours (400 + 222,622 + 64 + 15). (a) Applications to the Commission, including applications and notices supported pursuant to the Commission’s Rules of Practice: 400 hours. Most applications to the Commission generally fall within the ‘‘law enforcement’’ exception to the PRA and are mostly found in Part III (Rules of Practice for Adjudicative Proceedings) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice. See 16 CFR 3.1–3.83. Nonetheless, there are various applications and notices to the Commission contained in other rules (generally in Parts I, II, and IV of the Commission’s Rule of Practice). For example, staff estimates that the FTC annually receives approximately 15 requests for clearance submitted by former FTC employees in order to participate in certain matters and screening affidavits submitted by partners or legal or business associates of former employees pursuant to Rule 4.1, 16 CFR 4.1. There are also procedures set out in Rule 4.11(e) for agency review of outside requests for Commission employee testimony, through compulsory process or otherwise, in cases or matters to which the agency is not a party. Rule 4.11(e) requires that a person who seeks such E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1
