Download as PDF 40770 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 159 / Thursday, August 16, 2018 / Notices The annual burden for this information collection is estimated to be 7,806 hours. This represents an increase of 5,472 hours from the current burden estimate of 2,334 hours. This increase is not due to any new requirements imposed by the FDIC. Rather, it is due to FDIC’s reassessment of the burden hours associated with the contracting process and to better account for the burdens associated with requests for proposals and price quotations as well as RFIs. Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated at Washington, DC, on August 13, 2018. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Robert E. Feldman, Executive Secretary.
