Specifically, the Board is proposing the following revisions: (1) Adding several items requesting information regarding any subsidiaries of the SLHC. This information will assist the Federal Reserve System in its supervision of the consolidated SLHC structure; (2) Adding an item requesting the mailing address of the SLHC, if different from its physical address. This item will help Federal Reserve System staff contact the filer. (3) Adding an item for the printed name of the officer who signed the FR LL–10(b). This item will help Federal Reserve System staff identify the individual that certified the accuracy of the filing; (4) Adding an item requesting the date of signature of the FR LL–10(b). This item will inform the Federal Reserve System of the date as of which the signatory certified the accuracy of information included in the filing. In addition, the Board proposes to revise the FR LL–10(b) to account for a requirement in the FR LL–10(b) instructions that respondents retain a signed copy of the form and data submitted. The FR LL–10(b) does not currently account for this recordkeeping requirement. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR LL–10(b) is authorized by Section 10(b)(1) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act (HOLA), which requires each SLHC to register with the Federal Reserve within 90 days of becoming an SLHC on forms prescribed by the Board that contain such information as the Board may deem necessary or appropriate. The obligation to respond is mandatory. Individual respondents may request that information submitted to the Board through the FR LL–10(b) be kept confidential. If a respondent requests confidential treatment, the Board will determine whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment on a case-by-case basis. Information collected through the FR LL–10(b) may be kept confidential under exemption 4 for the Freedom of Information Act, which protects privileged or confidential commercial or financial information, or under FOIA exemption 6, which covers personal information, the disclosure of which would constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy.

Notice; request for final invoices. AGENCY: ACTION: The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) currently has open files for contracts that have lapsed. The contract periods of performance for services and final delivery dates for goods have expired and the time allowed for contract file closeout is overdue. To clear the backlog of physically completed contracts (FAR 4.804) the FTC will utilize the procedure described below based on FAR 4.804–5 and 42.708 that will enable the Commission to close these files all at one time in an efficient and cost effective manner. No separate contract modifications will be issued. DATES: The files are deemed closed as of the date of publication of this Notice. To facilitate the closeout, the FTC requests that contractors with contracts identified on the list, contained in Appendix A to this document, submit any outstanding invoices to the FTC Acquisition Division no later than September 13, 2019. ADDRESSES: Contractors should submit invoices as attachments to email messages, which should be addressed to Acquisitions@ftc.gov.

Email: lnadybal@ftc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FTC’s backlog of files pose a significant burden on the Commission as this contracting office transitions from one contract writing system to another. Using standard file closure procedures on the volume of old existing files would impede efforts to modernize the FTC’s procurement operation and hinder deployment of the interface between the contract writing system and the new financial management system. Importantly, not processing these file closeouts as quickly as possible will further delay contractors from receiving income from potential unpaid balances SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38965 or leave them unaware that the claims process remains available. The procedure takes into account that contractors have the right to concur with closure, to issue final invoices and make claims. The procedure is being be applied only to contracts deemed to be extremely low risk. For instance, the contracts listed in the Appendix have lapsed periods of performance, have no or only inconsequential amounts of funds obligated to them that need to be deobligated, have no option periods remaining to be exercised, contain no provisions for post-award adjustments of labor rates or incentives, and have not had any invoice or payment activity in Fiscal Year 2019. The procedure to be applied was developed and used by other agencies to significantly and swiftly reduce the number of expired contracts with unliquidated funds, and will have mutual benefits for the government and contractors by enabling the Commission to expeditiously close these actions and pay final bills. Notwithstanding the FTC’s intention to close out expeditiously the files identified in Appendix A, contractors’ rights are protected under 41 U.S.C. chapter 71 Contract Disputes (commonly known as the Contract Disputes Act of 1978), which establishes procedures for filing claims against Federal Government contracts. Normal contract file retention requirements will apply after closeout. (See 48 CFR 4.805). This notice will also be published to FedBizOpps at https://www.fbo.gov/. Leonard A.

Revision, the Following Information Collection

    Report title: Savings and Loan Holding Company Registration 
Statement.
    Agency form number: FR LL-10(b).
    OMB control number: 7100-0337.
    Frequency: As needed.
    Respondents: Savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs).
    Estimated number of respondents: 8.
    Estimated average hours per response: Reporting: 8; recordkeeping: 
0.25.
    Estimated annual burden hours: Reporting: 64; recordkeeping: 2.
    General description of report: The FR LL-10(b) requests information 
from registering SLHCs on the financial condition, ownership, 
operations, management, and intercompany relationships of the SLHC and 
its subsidiaries. Additionally, respondents must include information 
concerning the transaction that resulted in the respondent becoming an 
SLHC, a description of the SLHC's business, and a description of any 
changes related to the financial condition, ownership, operations, 
intercompany relationships, and management of the SLHC and its 
subsidiaries since the registrant's application to become an SLHC was 
approved. The principal executive or principal financial officer of the 
registering SLHC must certify that the information contained in the 
submission has been carefully reviewed and is true, correct, and

    Proposed revisions: The Board proposes several revisions to make 
the

[[Page 38965]]

FR LL-10(b) consistent with the format of other Board forms and to 
reflect the Board's regulations. Specifically, the Board is proposing 
the following revisions:
    (1) Adding several items requesting information regarding any 
subsidiaries of the SLHC. This information will assist the Federal 
Reserve System in its supervision of the consolidated SLHC structure;
    (2) Adding an item requesting the mailing address of the SLHC, if 
different from its physical address. This item will help Federal 
Reserve System staff contact the filer.
    (3) Adding an item for the printed name of the officer who signed 
the FR LL-10(b). This item will help Federal Reserve System staff 
identify the individual that certified the accuracy of the filing;
    (4) Adding an item requesting the date of signature of the FR LL-
10(b). This item will inform the Federal Reserve System of the date as 
of which the signatory certified the accuracy of information included 
in the filing.
    In addition, the Board proposes to revise the FR LL-10(b) to 
account for a requirement in the FR LL-10(b) instructions that 
respondents retain a signed copy of the form and data submitted. The FR 
LL-10(b) does not currently account for this recordkeeping requirement.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR LL-10(b) is 
authorized by Section 10(b)(1) of the Home Owners' Loan Act (HOLA), 
which requires each SLHC to register with the Federal Reserve within 90 
days of becoming an SLHC on forms prescribed by the Board that contain 
such information as the Board may deem necessary or appropriate. The 
obligation to respond is mandatory.
    Individual respondents may request that information submitted to 
the Board through the FR LL-10(b) be kept confidential. If a respondent 
requests confidential treatment, the Board will determine whether the 
information is entitled to confidential treatment on a case-by-case 
basis. Information collected through the FR LL-10(b) may be kept 
confidential under exemption 4 for the Freedom of Information Act, 
which protects privileged or confidential commercial or financial 
information, or under FOIA exemption 6, which covers personal 
information, the disclosure of which would constitute an unwarranted 
invasion of privacy.
