Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three years, with revision, of the following report: Report title: Joint Standards for Assessing Diversity Policies and Practices. Agency form number: FR 2100. OMB control number: 7100–0368. Frequency: Annual. Respondents: Financial institutions regulated by the Federal Reserve. Estimated annual burden hours: 3,912 hours. Estimated average hours per response: 8 hours. Number of respondents: 488. General description of report: Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) requires the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB), and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) (the Agencies) each to establish an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) to be responsible for all matters of the Agency relating to diversity in management, employment, and business activities. Section 342 requires each OMWI director to develop standards for ‘‘assessing the diversity policies and practices of entities regulated by the agency.’’ The Policy Statement, published jointly by the Agencies in June 2015, contain those standards. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the information collections contained within the Policy Statement are authorized by section 342 of the DoddFrank Act, which requires the Board’s PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 89463 OMWI director to develop standards for assessing regulated entities’ diversity policies and practices and are voluntary. The Standard regarding transparency, and a portion of the self-assessment Standard, call for regulated entities to provide information to the public, so confidentiality is not an issue with respect to those aspects of the Policy. A regulated entity may provide selfassessment material to the Board that contains confidential commercial information protectable under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), and may request that the information be kept confidential on a case-by-case basis. The Federal Reserve will determine whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment on an ad hoc basis in connection with such a request. As noted in the Policy Statement, an entity’s primary federal regulator may share information obtained from regulated entities with other Agencies, but will publish information disclosed to them only in a form that does not identify a particular entity or individual or disclose confidential business information. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve previously received OMB approval for a voluntary information collection with respect to the Policy Statement, pursuant to which entities regulated by the Federal Reserve voluntarily selfassess their diversity policies and practices.1 This revision to that collection adds the Diversity SelfAssessment Template to assist with the self-assessment. 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 self-assessment of its diversity policies and practices. On September 27, 2016, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 66275) requesting comment on the proposal to include a reporting tool entitled ‘‘Diversity Self-Assessment Template.’’ The comment period for this notice expired on November 28, 2016. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The reporting template will be implemented as proposed. 1 80 FR 33016 (June 10, 2015).

    Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for 
three years, with revision, of the following report:
    Report title: Joint Standards for Assessing Diversity Policies and 
Practices.
    Agency form number: FR 2100.
    OMB control number: 7100-0368.
    Frequency: Annual.
    Respondents: Financial institutions regulated by the Federal 
Reserve.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 3,912 hours.
    Estimated average hours per response: 8 hours.
    Number of respondents: 488.
    General description of report: Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall 
Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) 
requires the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Board of 
Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board), Federal Deposit 
Insurance Corporation (FDIC), National Credit Union Administration 
(NCUA), Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB), and Securities 
and Exchange Commission (SEC) (the Agencies) each to establish an 
Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) to be responsible for all 
matters of the Agency relating to diversity in management, employment, 
and business activities. Section 342 requires each OMWI director to 
develop standards for ``assessing the diversity policies and practices 
of entities regulated by the agency.'' The Policy Statement, published 
jointly by the Agencies in June 2015, contain those standards.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that the information collections contained within the 
Policy Statement are authorized by section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Act, 
which requires the Board's OMWI director to develop standards for 
assessing regulated entities' diversity policies and practices and are 
voluntary.
    The Standard regarding transparency, and a portion of the self-
assessment Standard, call for regulated entities to provide information 
to the public, so confidentiality is not an issue with respect to those 
aspects of the Policy. A regulated entity may provide self-assessment 
material to the Board that contains confidential commercial information 
protectable under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 
U.S.C. 552(b)(4), and may request that the information be kept 
confidential on a case-by-case basis. The Federal Reserve will 
determine whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment 
on an ad hoc basis in connection with such a request. As noted in the 
Policy Statement, an entity's primary federal regulator may share 
information obtained from regulated entities with other Agencies, but 
will publish information disclosed to them only in a form that does not 
identify a particular entity or individual or disclose confidential 
business information.
    Current Actions: The Federal Reserve previously received OMB 
approval for a voluntary information collection with respect to the 
Policy Statement, pursuant to which entities regulated by the Federal 
Reserve voluntarily self-assess their diversity policies and 
practices.\1\ This revision to that collection adds the Diversity Self-
Assessment Template to assist with the self-assessment. 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 
self-assessment of its diversity policies and practices.
