The Template (1) asks for general information about a respondent; (2) includes a checklist of the standards set forth in the Policy Statement; (3) seeks additional diversity data; and (4) provides an opportunity for a respondent to provide other information regarding or comment on the selfassessment of its diversity policies and practices. The OCC estimates that use of the Template would reduce the average response time for this collection per respondent from 12 hours to 8 hours. A draft of this Template can be viewed at www.occ.gov/divselfassessment. The OCC may use the information submitted by the entities it regulates to monitor progress and trends in the financial services industry with regard to diversity and inclusion in employment and contracting activities and to identify and highlight those policies and practices that have been successful. The OCC will continue to reach out to the regulated entities and other interested parties to discuss diversity and inclusion in the financial services industry and share leading practices. The OCC may also publish information disclosed by the entity, such as any identified leading practices, in any form that does not identify a particular institution or individual or disclose confidential business information. Type of Review: Revision. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Burden Estimates: Number of Respondents: 215. Revised Annual Burden for Policy Statement and Template: 8 hours.
