Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, August 2, 2018. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board. Final Approval Under OMB Delegated Authority of the Extension for Three Years, Without Revision, of the Following Report Report title: Senior Financial Officer Survey. Agency form number: FR 2023. OMB control number: 7100–0223. Frequency: Up to four times a year. Respondents: Domestically chartered large commercial banks. Estimated number of respondents: 80. Estimated average hours per response: 3 hours. Estimated annual burden hours: 960 hours. General description of report: The Board uses the surveys in this collection to gather qualitative and limited quantitative information about liability management, the provision of financial services, and the functioning of key financial markets. Responses are obtained from a senior officer at each participating institution usually through an electronic submission. Although a survey may not be collected in a given year, the Board may conduct up to four surveys per year when informational needs arise and cannot be met from existing data sources. The survey does not have a fixed set of questions; each survey consists of a limited number of questions directed at topics of timely interest.

Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act (FRA) requires that the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) maintain long-run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates (12 U.S.C. 225a). In addition, under section 12A of the FRA, the FOMC is required to implement regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks. Those transactions must be governed with a view to accommodating commerce and business and with regard to their bearing upon the general credit situation of the country (12 U.S.C. 263). The Board and the FOMC use the information obtained from the FR 2023 to help fulfill these obligations. The questions asked on each survey will vary, so the ability of the Board to maintain the confidentiality of information collected must be determined on a case by case basis. It is likely that much of the information collected would constitute confidential financial information obtained from a person and would thus be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information related to examination, operating, or condition reports prepared for the use of an agency supervising financial institutions, may also occasionally apply (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Current actions: On May 15, 2018, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (83 FR 22488) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Board’s clearance for the Senior Financial Officer Survey. The comment period for this notice expired on July 16, 2018. The Board did not receive any comments. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, August, 2, 2018.

General description of report: These collections of information are applicable to top-tier BHCs with total consolidated assets of $100 billion or more and U.S. IHCs. This family of information collections is composed of the following three reports: • The FR Y–14A collects quantitative projections of balance sheet, income, losses, and capital across a range of macroeconomic scenarios and qualitative information on methodologies used to develop internal projections of capital across scenarios either annually or semi-annually. • The quarterly FR Y–14Q collects granular data on various asset classes, including loans, securities, and trading assets, and PPNR for the reporting period. • The monthly FR Y–14M is comprised of three retail portfolio- and loan-level schedules, and one detailed address-matching schedule to supplement two of the portfolio and loan-level schedules. The data collected through the FR Y–14A/Q/M reports provide the Board with the information and perspective needed to help ensure that large firms have strong, firm-wide risk measurement and management processes supporting their internal assessments of capital adequacy and that their capital resources are sufficient given their business focus, activities, and resulting risk exposures. The annual Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) exercise complements other Board supervisory efforts aimed at enhancing the continued viability of large firms, including continuous monitoring of firms’ planning and management of liquidity and funding resources, as well as regular assessments of credit, market and operational risks, and associated risk management practices. Information gathered in this data collection is also used in the supervision and regulation of these financial institutions. To fully evaluate the data submissions, the Board may conduct follow-up discussions with, or request responses to follow up questions from, respondents. Respondent firms are currently required to complete and VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:37 Aug 07, 2018 Jkt 244001 submit up to 18 filings each year: two semi-annual FR Y–14A filings, four quarterly FR Y–14Q filings, and 12 monthly FR Y–14M filings. Compliance with the information collection is mandatory. Proposed revisions: In December 2017, the Board approved modifications to the FR Y–14 series of reports and a notice was published in the Federal Register (December 15, 2017; 82 FR 59608). The proposal modified the FR Y–14Q, Schedule L (Counterparty) effective as of the March 31, 2018, report date. These changes included simplifying the ranking methodology required for reporting positions and combining the previously separate collections of counterparties as ranked by derivatives and securities financing transactions (SFTs), respectively. Following the finalization and adoption of these proposed changes, the Board became aware of unintended omissions from the report forms and instructions for the FR Y–14Q. The omitted items required respondents to report their total stressed net current exposure under the two supervisory stressed scenarios. To rectify the unintended changes, the Board is proposing to revise subschedule L.5 (Derivatives and SFT Profile) on the FR Y–14Q by adding the mistakenly omitted items. This modification would allow continued operationalization of supervisory modeling, and would provide for total stressed net current exposure reporting under the two supervisory stressed scenarios. With the addition of the total stressed net current exposure item, the instructions would be changed to modify the associated ranking methodologies for the yearly stressed/ CCAR submission in sub-schedule L.5 to require the top 25 counterparties to be reported as ranked by the total stressed net current exposure. This modification would ensure that top counterparties are properly rankordered by the total stressed net current exposure to be added on sub-schedule L.5 in a manner that captures both derivative and securities financing transaction exposures. The proposed revisions do not result in a change to the estimated burden for this series of reports, as the burden from the proposed revisions is already captured in the burden estimates associated with the FR Y–14Q report.

    General description of report: These collections of information are 
applicable to top-tier BHCs with total consolidated assets of $100 
billion or more and U.S. IHCs. This family of information collections 
is composed of the following three reports:
     The FR Y-14A collects quantitative projections of balance 
sheet, income, losses, and capital across a range of macroeconomic 
scenarios and qualitative information on methodologies used to develop 
internal projections of capital across scenarios either annually or 
semi-annually.
     The quarterly FR Y-14Q collects granular data on various 
asset classes, including loans, securities, and trading assets, and 
PPNR for the reporting period.
     The monthly FR Y-14M is comprised of three retail 
portfolio- and loan-level schedules, and one detailed address-matching 
schedule to supplement two of the portfolio and loan-level schedules.
    The data collected through the FR Y-14A/Q/M reports provide the 
Board with the information and perspective needed to help ensure that 
large firms have strong, firm-wide risk measurement and management 
processes supporting their internal assessments of capital adequacy and 
that their capital resources are sufficient given their business focus, 
activities, and resulting risk exposures. The annual Comprehensive 
Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) exercise complements other Board 
supervisory efforts aimed at enhancing the continued viability of large 
firms, including continuous monitoring of firms' planning and 
management of liquidity and funding resources, as well as regular 
assessments of credit, market and operational risks, and associated 
risk management practices. Information gathered in this data collection 
is also used in the supervision and regulation of these financial 
institutions. To fully evaluate the data submissions, the Board may 
conduct follow-up discussions with, or request responses to follow up 
questions from, respondents. Respondent firms are currently required to 
complete and submit up to 18 filings each year: two semi-annual FR Y-
14A filings, four quarterly FR Y-14Q filings, and 12 monthly FR Y-14M 
filings. Compliance with the information collection is mandatory.
    Proposed revisions: In December 2017, the Board approved 
modifications to the FR Y-14 series of reports and a notice was 
published in the Federal Register (December 15, 2017; 82 FR 59608). The 
proposal modified the FR Y-14Q, Schedule L (Counterparty) effective as 
of the March 31, 2018, report date. These changes included simplifying 
the ranking methodology required for reporting positions and combining 
the previously separate collections of counterparties as ranked by 
derivatives and securities financing transactions (SFTs), respectively. 
Following the finalization and adoption of these proposed changes, the 
Board became aware of unintended omissions from the report forms and 
instructions for the FR Y-14Q. The omitted items required respondents 
to report their total stressed net current exposure under the two 
supervisory stressed scenarios.
    To rectify the unintended changes, the Board is proposing to revise 
sub-schedule L.5 (Derivatives and SFT Profile) on the FR Y-14Q by 
adding the mistakenly omitted items. This modification would allow 
continued operationalization of supervisory modeling, and would provide 
for total stressed net current exposure reporting under the two 
supervisory stressed scenarios.
    With the addition of the total stressed net current exposure item, 
the instructions would be changed to modify the associated ranking 
methodologies for the yearly stressed/CCAR submission in sub-schedule 
L.5 to require the top 25 counterparties to be reported as ranked by 
the total stressed net current exposure. This modification would ensure 
that top counterparties are properly rank-ordered by the total stressed 
net current exposure to be added on sub-schedule L.5 in a manner that 
captures both derivative and securities financing transaction 
exposures.
    The proposed revisions do not result in a change to the estimated 
burden for this series of reports, as the burden from the proposed 
revisions is already captured in the burden estimates associated with 
the FR Y-14Q report.
