Proposed Collection of Information: Request for Payment of Federal Benefit by Check, EFT Waiver Form, 20292-20293 [2015-08640]

Download as PDF 20292 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 72 / Wednesday, April 15, 2015 / Notices (TFOS) established a working group to discuss supervisory processes and strategies for monitoring and addressing interest rate risk at insured depository institutions. One of the group’s key priorities is to complete a questionnaire of asset-liability management software vendor model developers and consultants. The questionnaire is designed to inform examiners of the mechanics and underlying assumptions of specific interest rate risk models with the goal of helping examiners gain a better understanding of financial institutions’ rate sensitivity modeling. The questionnaire captures information ranging from basic aspects of each vendor or consultant’s interest rate risk model, for instance, its client base to more complex components, including modeling capability. The complex modeling components will provide a baseline level of regulatory knowledge about each vendor or consultant’s ability to measure interest rate risk under a variety of approaches, capture data, and measure the risk, including optionality. The questionnaire would cover approximately 73 vendors comprised of 33 model developers and 40 consultants. The questionnaire should take approximately 8 hours for each model developer to complete and 4 hours for each consultant to complete less detailed responses to model-related questions. The OCC will serve as the sponsoring or central collection agency for this information collection. The information will be collected by the OCC and made available to the FFIEC’s TFOS in order to support its discussions concerning supervisory processes and strategies for monitoring and addressing interest rate risk at insured depository institutions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OCC is proposing to adopt the following new information collection: Title: Interest Rate Risk Vendor Questionnaire. Frequency of Response: Annually. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Respondents: Asset-Liability Management Software Vendors (model developers and consultants). Total Estimated Number of Respondents: 73 (33 model developers; 40 consultants). Estimated Time per Response: 8 hours for model developers; 4 hours for consultants. Total Estimated Total Annual Burden: 424 hours. Type of Review: Regular.

One comment was received from a model vendor. The comment was generally favorable but raised an issue about awareness of vendor software upgrades; model vendors update software periodically. Vendors may have clients using different versions of a model as clients are not typically required to move to the most recent version. The questionnaire PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 addresses this concern by accommodating several versions of each vendor’s software. Comments continue to be invited on: (a) Whether the proposed revisions to the collections of information that are the subject of this notice are necessary for the proper performance of the agencies’ functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agencies’ estimates of the burden of the information collections as they are proposed to be revised, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Comments submitted in response to this joint notice will be shared among the agencies. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: April 9, 2015. Mary H.
