SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Investment Advice Participants and Beneficiaries information

collection requirements: (1) A fiduciary adviser must furnish an 
initial disclosure that provides detailed information to participants 
about an advice arrangement before initially providing investment 
advice; (2) a fiduciary adviser must annually engage an independent 
auditor to audit the investment advice arrangement for compliance with 
the regulation; (3) if the fiduciary adviser provides the investment 
advice through the use of a computer model, then--before providing the 
advice--the fiduciary adviser must obtain a written certification from 
an eligible investment expert as to the computer model's compliance 
with certain standards (e.g., applies generally accepted investment 
theories, unbiased operation, and objective criteria) set forth in the 
regulation; and (4) a fiduciary adviser must maintain records with 
respect to the investment advice provided in reliance on the regulation 
necessary to determine whether the applicable requirements of the 
regulation have been satisfied. Employee Retirement Income Security Act 
(ERISA) of 1974 sections 408(b)(14) and 408(g) authorizes this

years without renewal, and the DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization 
for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any 
change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing 
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a 
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional
