    Report Title: Government-Administered, General-Use Prepaid Card 
Surveys.
    Agency Form Number: FR 3063a and FR 3063b.
    OMB Control Number: 7100-0343.
    Frequency: Annual.
    Respondents: Issuers of government-administered, 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.
    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

    General Description of Report: The issuer survey (FR 3063a) 
collects data from issuers of government-administered, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 government-administered 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 government-administered payment 
programs and the interchange transaction fees and card-holder fees 
charged with respect to the 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.
