SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OPIC originally published a sixty (60) notice informing the public that it was renewing an existing collection. This notice was published in Federal Register volume 82 page 44220 on September 21, 2017. OPIC received one set of comments in response to the sixty (60) day notice and has made changes to the collection in response. OPIC has edited Question 6 to prompt affirmative answers to provide more information and also corrected an abbreviation in Question 7. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 These are the only proposed changes to the OPIC–252. All mailed comments and requests for copies of the subject form should include form number OPIC–252 on both the envelope and in the subject line of the letter. Electronic comments and requests for copies of the subject form may be sent to James.Bobbitt@opic.gov, subject line OPIC–252. Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved information collection. Title: U.S. Effects Screening Questionnaire. Form Number: OPIC–252. Frequency of Use: One per investor per project per year (as needed) and OPIC-supported financial intermediaries (as required by finance agreement or insurance contract). Type of Respondents: Business or other institutions; individuals. Standard Industrial Classification Codes: All. Description of Affected Public: U.S. companies or citizens investing overseas. Reporting Hours: 212.5 (2.125 hours per form). Number of Responses: 100 per year. Federal Cost: $16,104. Authority for Information Collection: Sections 231(k)–(m) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended. Abstract (Needs and Uses): The U.S. Effects Screening Questionnaire (OPIC– 252) is a pre-screener used to identify an investment’s potential negative impacts on the U.S. economy and employment. Title VI of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, prohibits OPIC from supporting investments that are likely to cause the loss of U.S. jobs, or that have performance requirements that may reduce substantially the positive trade benefits likely to accrue to the U.S. from the investment. OPIC–252 is used as a low-burden pre-screener which is submitted prior to a formal OPIC application or as required by OPICsupported financial intermediaries. Prescreening reduces the likelihood that an applicant will only be told after completing the application process that the project is barred for policy reasons. Projects which proceed to a full application will fill out the more detailed OPIC–248 to ensure full compliance with OPIC’s policies. Dated: November 21, 2017.
