the CPO is required to report on a quarterly basis to the CFTC in Form 
CPO-PQR. The instructions to Form CPO-PQR, however, specify that all 
financial information in the form must be presented and computed in

financial information remains substantively unchanged. There are no 
capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with the 
collection.
