ACTION: Notice of 2019 schedule of fees. AGENCY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘CFTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) charges fees to designated contract markets and registered futures associations to recover the costs incurred by the Commission in the operation of its program of oversight of self-regulatory organization rule enforcement programs, specifically National Futures Association (‘‘NFA’’), a registered futures association, and the designated contract markets. Fees collected from each self-regulatory organization are deposited in the Treasury of the United States as miscellaneous receipts. The calculation of the fee amounts charged for 2019 by this notice is based upon an average of actual program costs incurred during fiscal year (‘‘FY’’) 2016, FY 2017, and FY 2018. DATES: Each self-regulatory organization is required to remit electronically the applicable fee on or before November 8, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anthony C. Thompson, Executive Director, Commodity Futures Trading Commission; (202) 418–5697; Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street NW, Washington, DC 20581.

Background Information A. General This notice relates to fees for the Commission’s review of the rule enforcement programs at the registered futures associations 1 and designated 1 National Futures Association is the only registered futures association. PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 contract markets (‘‘DCM’’), each of which is a self-regulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) regulated by the Commission. The Commission recalculates the fees charged each year to cover the costs of operating this Commission program.2 The fees are set each year based on direct program costs, plus an overhead factor. The Commission calculates actual costs, then calculates an alternate fee taking volume into account, and then charges the lower of the two.3 B. Overhead Rate The fees charged by the Commission to the SROs are designed to recover program costs, including direct labor costs and overhead. The overhead rate is calculated by dividing total Commission-wide overhead direct program labor costs into the total amount of the Commission-wide overhead pool. For this purpose, direct program labor costs are the salary costs of personnel working in all Commission programs. Overhead costs generally consist of the following Commissionwide costs: Indirect personnel costs (leave and benefits), rent, communications, contract services, utilities, equipment, and supplies. This formula has resulted in the following overhead rates for the most recent three years (rounded to the nearest whole percent): 190 percent for FY 2016, and 175 percent for FY 2017, and 182 precent for FY 2018. C. Conduct of SRO Rule Enforcement Reviews Under the formula adopted by the Commission in 1993, the Commission calculates the fee to recover the costs of its rule enforcement reviews and examinations, based on the three-year average of the actual cost of performing such reviews and examinations at each SRO. The cost of operation of the Commission’s SRO oversight program varies from SRO to SRO, according to the size and complexity of each SRO’s program. The three-year averaging computation method is intended to smooth out year-to-year variations in cost. Timing of the Commission’s reviews and examinations may affect costs—a review or examination may span two fiscal years and reviews and examinations are not conducted at each SRO each year. As noted above, adjustments to actual costs may be made to relieve the burden on an SRO with a disproportionately 2 See Section 237 of the Futures Trading Act of 1982, 7 U.S.C. 16a, and 31 U.S.C. 9701.
