SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Number: 3133–0135. Title: Authorization Agreement for Electronic Funds Transfer Payment. Form: NCUA 2005. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The NCUA is required under the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 to issue payments to credit unions and all other entities electronically. The ‘‘Authorization Agreement for Electronic Funds Transfer Payment’’ form is used to maintain up-to-date and accurate electronic payment data for new and existing credit unions. NCUA will use the information to update its vendor (credit union) electronic routing and transit data database to enable transmittal of funds and payments. If this information is not collected, NCUA will not be able to make payment electronically through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) and will be in non-compliance with the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. Affected Public: Private Sector: Notfor-profit institutions. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 25. OMB Number: 3133–0166. Title: Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), 12 CFR 1003 (Regulation C). Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The collection of this data is required under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) (12 U.S.C. 2801 et seq.), as codified under 12 CFR part 1003, Regulation C. The information collection is intended to provide the public with loan data that can be used to help determine whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities; to assist public officials in distributing publicsector investments so as to attract private investment to areas where it is needed, and to assist in identifying possible discriminatory lending patterns and enforcing anti-discrimination statutes. The information collection will assist NCUA’s examiners, and examiners of other federal supervisory agencies, in determining that the financial institutions they supervise comply with the applicable provisions of HMDA. Affected Public: Private Sector: Notfor-profit institutions. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 108,175. OMB Number: 3133–0151. Title: Leasing, 12 CFR part 714.

Abstract: Section 714.5 of NCUA’s Regulations requires a federal credit union engaged in leasing to obtain or have on file financial documentation demonstrating that the guarantor of an estimated residual value has the resources to meet the guarantee. Estimated residual value is the projected future value of leased property at lease end. The accuracy of the estimated residual values used in a lease program is a fundamental element in the success or failure of a lease program. The higher the estimated residual values used by a federal credit union, the greater the potential for loss. To mitigate this risk, the leasing rule requires that if the amount of the estimated residual value relied on by the federal credit union to satisfy the full payout lease requirement exceeds 25 percent of the original cost of the leased property, the credit union must obtain a guarantee of the excess from a financially capable party. If the guarantor cannot meet its guarantee, a federal credit union may suffer serious financial loss. Accordingly, it is important that a federal credit union documents that a guarantor has the financial resources and capability to meet the guarantee. If the guarantor is an insurance company, the federal credit union may satisfy this record keeping requirement by obtaining and maintaining information demonstrating that the insurance company has a rating equivalent to a B+ or better from a major rating company. Affected Public: Private Sector: Notfor-profit institutions. Estimated No. of Respondents: 83. Estimated No. of Responses per Respondent: 5. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 415. Estimated Hours per Response: 2. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 830. Reason for Change: Adjustment is attributed to current updated data since the last previous submission.

Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Proposed Project: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37695 The NSF Division of Materials Research (DMR) supports a number of National User Facilities that provide specialized capabilities and instrumentation to the scientific community on a competitive proposal basis. In addition to the user program, these facilities support in-house research, development of new instrumentation or techniques, education, and knowledge transfer. The facilities integrate research and education for students and post-docs involved in experiments, and support extensive K–12 outreach to foster an interest in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and STEM careers. Facilities capitalize on diversity through participation in center activities and demonstrate leadership in the involvement of groups underrepresented in science and engineering. National User Facilities will be required to submit annual reports on progress and plans, which will be used as a basis for performance review and determining the level of continued funding. User facilities will be required to develop a set of management and performance indicators for submission annually to NSF via the Research Performance Project Reporting (RPPR) module in Research.gov. These indicators are both quantitative and descriptive and may include, for example, lists of successful proposal and users, the characteristics of facility personnel and students; sources of financial support and in-kind support; expenditures by operational component; research activities; education activities; knowledge transfer activities; patents, licenses; publications; degrees granted to students supported through the facility or users of the facility; descriptions of significant advances and other outcomes of this investment. Such reporting requirements are included in the cooperative agreement which is binding between the academic institution and the NSF. Each facility’s annual report will address the following categories of activities: (1) Research, (2) education and training, (3) knowledge transfer, (4) partnerships, (5) diversity, (6) management, and (7) budget issues. For each of the categories the report will describe overall objectives and metrics for the reporting period, challenges or problems the facility has encountered in making progress towards goals, anticipated problems in the following year, and specific outputs and outcomes. Facilities are required to file a final report through the RPPR. Final reports contain similar information and metrics E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1
