    Abstract: On June 4, 2012, the Federal Reserve published a final 
rulemaking for Securities Holding Companies (Regulation OO) in the 
Federal Register (77 FR 32881). Regulation OO implements section 618 of 
the Dodd-Frank Act, which permits nonbank companies that own at least 
one registered securities broker or dealer, and that are required by a

    General description of report: The RFP and RFPQ are required to 
obtain a benefit and are authorized by Sections 10(3), 10(4), and 11(1) 
of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 243, 244, and 248(l)). With 
regard to the Subcontracting Report, Section 342(c) of the Dodd-Frank 
Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) 
requires the Federal Reserve to develop and implement standards and 
procedures to assess the diversity policies and practices in all 
business and activities of the agency at all levels, including 
procurement, insurance, and all types of contracts. (12 U.S.C. 
5452(c)(1)). ``Such procedure shall include a written statement, in a 
form and with such content as the Director [of OMWI] shall prescribe . 
. . that a contractor shall ensure . . . the fair inclusion of women 
and minorities in the workforce of the contractor and, as applicable,

    Proposals from vendors that are not accepted and incorporated into 
contracts with the Federal Reserve would be protected from Freedom of 
Information (FOIA) disclosure by 41 U.S.C. 4702, which expressly 
prohibits FOIA disclosure of these proposals. Moreover, during the

exemption 4, which applies to ``trade secrets and commercial or

pursuant to a FOIA request (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).
    Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses the RFP and the RFPQ as 
appropriate to obtain competitive proposals and contracts from approved 
vendors of goods and services. This information collection is required 
to collect data on prices, specifications of goods and services, and 
qualifications of prospective vendors.
    Current Actions: On July 23, 2015, the Federal Reserve published a 
notice in the Federal Register (80 FR 43777) requesting public comment 
on the proposed extension, with revision, of the RFP and RFPQ. In 
connection with the RFP and RFPQ process, the Federal Reserve proposed 
to require prime contractors to submit a Subcontracting Report that 
would collect information about their subcontractors' commitments 
toward diversity and inclusion of minority-owned and women-owned 
vendors in the subcontractor's activities. The comment period for the 
notice expired on September 21, 2015. The Federal Reserve received one 
comment, which stated that contracting programs should be open to all
