OMB Control Number: 3170–0057. Type of Review: Extension with revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments; Federal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 60. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 14. Abstract: Section 1013(b)(3)(A) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act or Act) requires the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (‘‘the Bureau’’) to ‘‘facilitate the centralized collection of, monitoring of, and response to consumer complaints regarding consumer financial products or services.’’ 1 The Act also requires the Bureau to ‘‘share consumer complaint information with prudential regulators, the Federal Trade Commission, other Federal agencies, and State agencies.’’ 2 To facilitate the collection of complaints, the Bureau accepts consumer complaints submitted by members of Congress on behalf of their constituents with the consumer’s express written authorization for the release of their personal information. In furtherance of its statutory mandates related to consumer complaints, the Bureau uses Government and Congressional Portal Boarding Forms (Boarding Forms) to register users for access to secure, webbased portals. The Bureau has developed separate portals for congressional users and other government users as part of its secure web portal offerings (the ‘‘Congressional Portal’’ and the ‘‘Government Portal,’’ respectively).3 Through the Government Portal, government users can view consumer complaint information in a user-friendly format that allows easy review of complaints currently active in the Bureau process, complaints referred to a prudential federal regulator, and other closed/archived complaints. Through the Congressional Portal, members of Congress and authorized 1 Codified at 12 U.S.C. 5493(b)(3)(A). Act section 1013(b)(3)(D), codified at 12 U.S.C. 5493(b)(3)(D). 3 In addition to the boarding forms for congressional and government users, the Bureau utilizes a separate OMB-approved form to board companies onto their own distinct portal to access complaints submitted against them, through OMB Control No. 3170–0054 (Consumer Complaint Intake System Company Portal Boarding Form Information Collection System; expires July 31, 2018). 2 Dodd-Frank PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64567 congressional office staff can view data associated with consumer complaints they submit on behalf of their constituents with the consumer’s express written authorization for the release of their personal information. The Congressional Portal only displays information about complaints submitted by the individual congressional office. Request for Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the 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.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3. Abstract: Section 3505(a)(2) of the PRA of 1995 provides the OMB Director authority to approve the streamlined clearance process proposed in this information collection request. This information collection request was originally approved by OMB in January of 1997. This information collection streamlines the clearance process for all discretionary grant information collections which do not fit the generic application process. The streamlined clearance process continues to reduce the clearance time for the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED’s) discretionary grant information collections by two months or 60 days. This is desirable for two major reasons: It would allow ED to provide better customer service to grant applicants and help meet ED’s goal for timely awards of discretionary grants. § 3474.20(d) adds the requirement for grantees to E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1
