Estimated Number of Respondents: 15. Estimated Average Hours per Response: 2.5 hours. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 150 hours. General Description of Report: The FR 2320 collects select parent only and consolidated balance sheet and income statement financial data and organizational structure data from SLHCs that are currently exempt from filing other Federal Reserve regulatory reports (exempt SLHCs).1 The FR 2320 is used by the Board to analyze the overall financial condition of exempt SLHCs to ensure safe and sound operations. These data assist the Board in the evaluation of a diversified holding company and in determining whether an institution is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Legal Authorization and Confidentiality: The Board has determined that the Home Owners’ Loan Act authorizes the Board to require SLHCs to file ‘‘such reports as may be required by the Board’’ and instructs that such reports ‘‘shall contain such information concerning the operations of such savings and loan holding company and its subsidiaries as the Board may require.’’ (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)). The obligation to respond is mandatory for exempt SLHCs. In some cases, lower-tier SLHCs may voluntarily file the FR 2320. In other cases lower-tier SLHCs may be required to file (in addition to the top-tier SLHC) for safety and soundness purposes at the discretion of the appropriate Federal Reserve Bank. The Board also has determined that data items C572, C573, and C574 (line items 24, 25, and 26) may be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Commercial or financial information may be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 if disclosure of such information is likely to cause substantial competitive harm to the provider of the information. (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). The data items listed above pertain to new or changed pledges, or capital stock of any subsidiary savings association that 1 To be exempt, an SLHC must meet one of the following criteria: (1) The SLHC was formed under section 10(c)(9)(C) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act (HOLA) and the consolidated assets of its saving association subsidiaries make up less than 5 percent of the total consolidated assets of the SLHC; or (2) its top-tier holding company is an insurance company that only prepares financial statements using statutory accounting principles. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 Aug 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 secures short-term or long-term debt or other borrowings of the SLHC; changes to any class of securities of the SLHC or any of its subsidiaries that would negatively impact investors; and defaults of the SLHC or any of its subsidiaries during the quarter. Disclosure of this type of information is likely to cause substantial competitive harm to the SLHC providing the information and thus this information may be protected from disclosure under FOIA exemption 4. With regard to the remaining data items on the FR 2320, the Board has determined that institutions may request confidential treatment for any FR 2320 data item or for all FR 2320 data items, and that confidential treatment will be reviewed on a case-bycase basis. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, August 18, 2017. Ann E. Misback, Secretary of the Board.

Purpose Presolicitation notices are used by the Government for several reasons, one of which is to aid prospective contractors in submitting proposals without undue expenditure of effort, time, and money. The Government also uses the presolicitation notices to control printing and mailing costs. The presolicitation notice response is used to determine the number of solicitation documents needed and to assure that interested offerors receive the solicitation documents. The responses are placed in the contract file and referred to when solicitation documents are ready for mailing. After mailing, the responses remain in the contract file and become a matter of record. The FAR sections affected are: 4.5; 14.205; 15.201(c) and 36.213–2. The responses are placed in the contract file and referred to when solicitation documents are ready for mailing. After mailing, the responses remain in the E:\FR\FM\23AUN1.SGM 23AUN1 40002 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 23, 2017 / Notices contract file and become a matter of record. FedBizOpps is an electronic method for publicizing contract opportunities. The number of presolicitation notices issued government-wide in the last 365 days (as of August 11, 2017) per FedBizOpps was 7952. We estimate that three respondents on average would reply to a presolicitation notice. Based on this info, we feel that the estimated respondents would number 23,856. We also estimate that each respondent on average would reply to three presolicitation notices a year. Time required to read and prepare information is estimated at 5 minutes per completion. The burden has increased from the one in Federal Register Notice 79 FR 49316 dated August 20, 2014 due to the additional number of presolicitation notices issued by the Federal Government in FedBizOpps. This had the effect of expanding the number of respondents who would be affected by the collection. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 16,699. Responses per Respondent: 3.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    Presolicitation notices are used by the Government for several 
reasons, one of which is to aid prospective contractors in submitting 
proposals without undue expenditure of effort, time, and money. The 
Government also uses the presolicitation notices to control printing 
and mailing costs. The presolicitation notice response is used to 
determine the number of solicitation documents needed and to assure 
that interested offerors receive the solicitation documents. The 
responses are placed in the contract file and referred to when 
solicitation documents are ready for mailing.
    After mailing, the responses remain in the contract file and become 
a matter of record. The FAR sections affected are: 4.5; 14.205; 
15.201(c) and 36.213-2. The responses are placed in the contract file 
and referred to when solicitation documents are ready for mailing. 
After mailing, the responses remain in the

contract file and become a matter of record. FedBizOpps is an 
electronic method for publicizing contract opportunities. The number of 
presolicitation notices issued government-wide in the last 365 days (as 
of August 11, 2017) per FedBizOpps was 7952.
    We estimate that three respondents on average would reply to a 
presolicitation notice. Based on this info, we feel that the estimated 
respondents would number 23,856. We also estimate that each respondent 
on average would reply to three presolicitation notices a year. Time 
required to read and prepare information is estimated at 5 minutes per 
completion.
    The burden has increased from the one in Federal Register Notice 79 
FR 49316 dated August 20, 2014 due to the additional number of 
presolicitation notices issued by the Federal Government in FedBizOpps. 
This had the effect of expanding the number of respondents who would be 
affected by the collection.

B. Annual Reporting Burden

    Respondents: 16,699.
    Responses per Respondent: 3.
    Annual Responses: 50,097.
    Hours per Response: .08.
    Total Burden Hours: 4,008.

C. Public Comments

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; 
whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of 
information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and 
methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the 
burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, 
through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
