SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Confirmation, Portfolio Reconciliation, Portfolio Compression, and Swap Trading Relationship Documentation Requirements for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants (OMB Control Nos. 3038–0068 and 3038–0083).2 This is a request for an extension of currently approved information collections. Abstract: On September 11, 2012 the Commission adopted Commission regulations 23.500–23.505 (Confirmation, Portfolio Reconciliation, Portfolio Compression, and Swap Trading Relationship Documentation Requirements for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants) 3 under sections 4s(f), (g) and (i) 4 of the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’). The regulations require, among other things, that swap dealers (‘‘SDs’’) 5 and major swap participants (‘‘MSPs’’) 6 develop and retain written swap trading relationship documentation. The regulations also establish requirements for SDs and MSPs regarding swap confirmation, portfolio reconciliation, and portfolio compression. Under the regulations, swap dealers and major swap participants are obligated to maintain records of the policies and procedures required by the rules.7 Confirmation, portfolio reconciliation, and portfolio compression are important post-trade processing mechanisms for reducing risk and improving operational efficiency. The information collection obligations imposed by the regulations are necessary to ensure that each swap dealer and major swap participant maintains the required records of their business activities and an audit trail sufficient to conduct comprehensive and accurate trade reconstruction. The information collections contained in the regulations are essential to ensuring that swap dealers and major swap participants document their swaps, reconcile their swap portfolios to resolve discrepancies and disputes, and wholly or partially terminate some or all of their outstanding swaps through regular portfolio compression exercises. The collections of information are mandatory. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. On May 1, 2019, the Commission published in the Federal Register notice of the proposed extension of this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment on the proposed extension, 84 FR 18521 (‘‘60-Day Notice’’). The Commission did not receive any relevant comments on the 60-Day Notice. 3 17 CFR 23.500–23.505. U.S.C. 6s(f), (g) & (i). 5 For the definition of SD, see Section 1a(49) of the CEA and Commission regulation 1.3, 7 U.S.C. 1a(49) and 17 CFR 1.3. 6 For the definitions of MSP, see Section 1a(33) of the CEA and Commission regulation 1.3, 7 U.S.C. 1a(33) and 17 CFR 1.3. 7 SDs and MSPs are required to maintain all records of policies and procedures in accordance with Commission regulation 1.31, including policies, procedures and models used for eligible master netting agreements and custody agreements that prohibit custodian of margin from rehypothecating, repledging, reusing, or otherwise transferring the funds held by the custodian. 47 1 17 CFR 145.9. PRA Collections 3038–0068, 3038– 0083, and 3038–0088, which impose interrelated requirements, were renewed as a consolidated collection. See 81 FR 6241 (Feb. 5, 2016). However, on April 1, 2019, the CFTC published an interim final rule (IFR), which allows uncleared swaps to retain its legacy status when transferred in connection with a no-deal Brexit. See 84 FR 12233. This IFR directly affects the calculation of burdens in PRA Collection 3038–0088. Accordingly, the proposed renewal now treats collections 3038–0068 and 3038–0083 as a consolidated collection, with collection 3038–0088 being considered separately. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 2 Historically, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Jul 01, 2019 Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Burden Statement: The Commission is revising its estimate of the burdens for the collections to reflect the current number of respondents and estimated burden hours.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 56. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 5,334. Abstract: The National Public Education Financial Survey (NPEFS) is an annual collection of state-level finance data that has been included in the NCES Common Core of Data (CCD) since FY 1982 (school year 1981–82). NPEFS provides function expenditures by salaries, benefits, purchased services, and supplies, and includes federal, state, and local revenues by source. The NPEFS collection includes data on all state-run schools from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. NPEFS data are used for a wide variety of purposes, including to calculate federal program allocations such as states’ ‘‘average per-pupil expenditure’’ (SPPE) for elementary and secondary education, certain formula grant programs (e.g., Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) as amended, Impact Aid, and Indian Education programs). Furthermore, in addition to using the SPPE data as general information on the financing of elementary and secondary education, the U.S. Department of Education Secretary uses these data directly in calculating allocations for certain formula grant programs, including, but not limited to, title I, part A, of the ESEA, Impact Aid, and Indian Education programs. Other programs, such as the Education for Homeless Children and Youth program under title VII of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, and the Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants under title IV, part A of the ESEA make use of SPPE data indirectly because their formulas are based, in whole or in part, on State title I, part A, allocations. This request is to conduct the annual collection of state-level finance data for FY 2019–2021. Dated: June 26, 2019.
