Agency Recordkeeping/Reporting Requirements Under Emergency Review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB); Comment Request, 22490-22491 [2018-10452]

Download as PDF 22490 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 94 / Tuesday, May 15, 2018 / Notices be kept confidential under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, which protects from disclosure trade secrets and commercial or financial information (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Current actions: On February 21, 2018, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (83 FR 7474) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the Reports of Deposits (FR 2900; OMB No. 7100–0087). The Board proposes raising the nonexempt deposit cutoff to $1 billion, substantially increasing the cutoff from its indexed amount of $457.5 million that is set to take effect in September 2018. This proposed increase in the nonexempt deposit cutoff would reduce reporting burden on depository institutions while maintaining accurate measurements of the money and reserves aggregates. With this increase, the Board estimates that approximately 1,000 depository institutions would become newly eligible to elect to shift from weekly to quarterly FR 2900 reporting. However, consistent with current policy, newly eligible institutions for quarterly reporting may elect to continue reporting weekly. There are no changes proposed for the FR 2910a, FR 2915, or FR 2930. The comment period for this notice expired on April 23, 2018. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 9, 2018. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 15, 1984, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) delegated to the Board authority under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) to approve of and assign OMB control numbers to collection of information requests and requirements conducted or sponsored by the Board. Board-approved collections of information are incorporated into the official OMB inventory of currently approved collections of information. Copies of the Paperwork Reduction Act Submission, supporting statements and approved collection of information instrument(s) are placed into OMB’s public docket files. The Federal Reserve may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three years, without revision, of the following report: Report title: Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices. Agency form number: FR 2018. OMB control number: 7100–0058. Frequency: Up to six times a year. Respondents: Domestically chartered large commercial banks and large U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks. Estimated number of respondents: 104. Estimated average hours per response: 2 hours. Estimated annual burden hours: 1,248 hours. General description of report: The FR 2018 is conducted with a senior loan officer at each respondent bank, generally through electronic submission, up to six times a year. The purpose of the survey is to provide qualitative and limited quantitative information on credit availability and demand, as well as evolving developments and lending practices in the U.S. loan markets. A portion of each survey typically covers special topics of timely interest. There is the option to survey other types of respondents (such PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 as other depository institutions, bank holding companies, or other financial entities) should the need arise. The FR 2018 survey provides crucial information for monitoring and understanding the evolution of lending practices at banks and developments in credit markets. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices is authorized by Sections 2A, 11, and 12A of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 225a, 248(a), and 263) and Section 7 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3105(c)(2)) and is voluntary. Individual survey responses from each respondent can be held confidential under section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). However, certain data from the survey is reported in aggregate form and the information in aggregate form is made publicly available and not considered confidential. Current actions: On February 21, 2018, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (83 FR 7477) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices. The comment period for this notice expired on April 23, 2018. The Board did not receive any comments. The information collection will be extended as proposed.
