(‘‘Paperwork Reduction Act’’), the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Form N–Q (17 CFR 249.332 and 274.130) is a reporting form used by registered management investment companies, other than small business investment companies registered on Form N–5 (‘‘funds’’), under Section 30(b) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (‘‘Investment Company Act’’) and Sections 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.). Pursuant to Rule 30b1–5 under the Investment Company Act, funds are required to file quarterly reports with the Commission on Form N–Q not more than 60 days after the close of the first and third quarters of each fiscal year containing their complete portfolio holdings. Additionally, fund management is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the fund’s disclosure controls and procedures within the 90day period prior to the filing of a report on Form N–Q, and such report must also be signed and certified by the fund’s principal executive and financial officers. We estimate that there are 11,348 funds required to file reports on Form N–Q. Based on staff experience and conversations with industry representatives, we estimate that it takes approximately 26 hours per fund to prepare reports on Form N–Q annually. Accordingly, we estimate that the total annual burden associated with Form N– Q is 295,048 hours (26 hours per fund × 11,348 funds) per year. The estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or even representative survey or study of the cost of Commission rules and forms. The collection of information under Form N–Q is mandatory. The information provided by the form is not kept confidential.

patrolled by security during non-business hours. The computer system 
offers a high degree of resistance to tampering and circumvention and 
limits data access to Board and contract staff on a need-to-know basis. 
Individuals' ability to access and alter records within the system is 
controlled. All users of the system of records are provided a unique 
user identification (ID) with personal identifiers. User IDs are 
consistent with the above referenced role-based access privileges to 
maintain proper security of law enforcement and any other sensitive 
information. In concert with access controls, audit trails are used to 
record user and system activity within the system and its associated 
applications.
    Paper records are maintained in file cabinets which may be locked 
or in specified areas to which only authorized personnel have access.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:
    Board personnel will review records on a periodic basis to 
determine whether they should be retained or modified. Further, the 
Board will retain and dispose of these records in accordance with Board 
Records Control Schedules approved by the National Archives and Records 
Administration.
