Small Business Investment Companies-Early Stage SBICs
Document Number: 2016-01879
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-02
Agency: Small Business Administration, Agencies and Commissions
This call for proposals (``Call'') invites experienced early stage fund managers to submit the preliminary materials discussed in Section II below, in the form of the Small Business Investment Company (``SBIC'') Management Assessment Questionnaire (``MAQ''), for consideration by the Small Business Administration (``SBA'') to be licensed as Early Stage Small Business Investment Companies. Licensed Early Stage SBICs may receive SBA-guaranteed debenture leverage of up to 100 percent of their Regulatory Capital, up to a maximum of $50 million. However, Early Stage SBICs may, and most existing Early Stage SBICs do, request less than 100 percent of their Regulatory Capital. Importantly, Early Stage SBICs must invest at least 50% of their investment dollars in early stage small businesses. For the purposes of this initiative, an ``early stage'' business is one that has never achieved positive cash flow from operations in any fiscal year. By licensing and providing SBA guaranteed leverage to Early Stage SBICs, SBA seeks to expand entrepreneurs' access to capital and encourage innovation as part of President Obama's Start-Up America Initiative launched on January 31, 2011. More information on the Early Stage SBIC Initiative and the regulations governing these SBICs may be found at www.sba.gov/inv/earlystage.

The proposed change to OPIC-162 clarifies existing questions, incorporates sector-specific development impact questions and eliminates ineffective questions in an effort to harmonize development impact indicators with other Development Finance Institutions (``DFIs''). OPIC is a signatory to a ``Memorandum of Understanding'' with 25 partnering DFIs to harmonize development impact metrics where possible. The goal of this effort is to reduce the reporting burden on clients that receive financing from multiple DFIs and to instill best practices in the collection and the reporting on OPIC's developmental impacts. To minimize the reporting burden on respondents, OPIC has designed OPIC-162 as an electronic form with questions populating only if they relate to a project.

Agency: Department of the Treasury, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network
FinCEN published the revised Bank Secrecy Act Currency Transaction Report (``BCTR'') in March 2011.

To remedy some of the limitations of the current BCTR, FinCEN now proposes an amended report. This notice does not propose any new regulatory requirements or changes to the requirements related to currency transaction reporting, but rather seeks input on technical matters designed to improve the layout and reporting of the BCTR. This request for comments covers 31 CFR 1010.310. This request for comments is made pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104-13, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A).
