Agency Form Number: FR 3063a and FR 3063b. OMB Control Number: 7100–0343. Frequency: Annual. Respondents: Issuers of governmentadministered, general-use prepaid cards (FR 3063a) and governments that administer general-use prepaid card programs (FR 3063b). Estimated Number of Respondents: FR 3063a: 25; FR 3063b: 75. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:31 Jun 02, 2017 Jkt 241001 Estimated Average Hours per Response: FR 3063a: 25 hours; FR 3063b: 15 hours. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: FR 3063a: 625 hours; FR 3063b: 1,125 hours. General Description of Report: The issuer survey (FR 3063a) collects data from issuers of governmentadministered, general-use prepaid cards including card program information, cards outstanding, card funding, ATM transactions, purchase transactions, fees paid by issuers to third parties, interchange fees, and cardholder fees. The issuer survey (FR 3063a) is mandatory. The government survey (FR 3063b) collects data from state governments, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories (collectively ‘‘state governments’’), and municipal government offices located within the United States (local government offices) that administer general-use prepaid card payment programs.1 Data collected from government offices include program information, the number of cards outstanding, and funding information. The government survey (FR 3063b) is voluntary. The Board uses data from these surveys to support an annual report to the Congress on the prevalence of use of general-use prepaid cards in federal, state, and local governmentadministered payment programs and on the interchange and cardholder fees charged with respect to such use of such cards. Legal Authorization and Confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that both the issuer survey and the government survey are authorized by subsection 920(a) of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, which was amended by section 1075(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act (15 U.S.C. 1693o–2). This subsection requires the Board to submit an annual report to Congress on the prevalence of the use of general-use prepaid cards in Federal, State or local governmentadministered payment programs and the interchange transaction fees and cardholder fees charged with respect to the 1 The issuer and government surveys request information on all federal, state, or local government-administered payment programs that provide a general-use prepaid card (or other debit card) disbursement option to payment recipients. The government survey may be distributed to federal government agencies in addition to state and local governments, but collections of information from federal government agencies are not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act and, thus, are not included in this discussion. U.S. territories include American Samoa, Guam, Midway Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 use of such general-use prepaid cards (15 U.S.C. 1693o–2(a)(7)(D)). It also provides the Board with authority to require issuers to provide information to enable the Board to carry out the provisions of the subsection (15 U.S.C. 1693o–2(a)(3)(B)). The obligation of issuers to respond to the issuer survey (FR 3063a) is mandatory. However, the obligation of state governments and local government offices to respond to the government survey (FR 3063b) is voluntary. All of the information collected on the government survey and a limited amount of information collected on the issuer survey is publicly available, and thus, is not accorded confidential treatment. However, most of the information collected on the issuer survey is not publicly available and may be kept confidential as explained herein. Data collected by the issuer survey may be kept confidential under exemption (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which exempts from disclosure ‘‘trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person and privileged or confidential’’ (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Such data may be kept confidential under exemption 4 if the release of data would cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the issuer. For example, certain issuer survey responses would likely contain information related to an organization’s revenue structure and other proprietary and commercial information and the release of such information would cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the issuer and could therefore be kept confidential under exemption 4.
