Respondents: Depository institutions that meet the reporting thresholds and daily transact in trading of marketable U.S. Treasury securities and the trading of the debt and mortgage-backed securities issued by agencies. Estimated number of respondents: Treasury securities, 10; Agency debt and mortgage-backed securities, 12. Estimated average hours per response: 3. Estimated annual burden hours: 16,500. General description of report: The proposed FR 2956 would collect detailed data on depository institutions’ daily transactions of marketable U.S. Treasury securities and of the debt and mortgage-backed securities (MBS) issued by U.S. federal government agencies including governmentsponsored enterprises (agencies). The report would have two parts: Part 1 would collect data on transactions in U.S. Treasury debt, and Part 2 would collect transactions in debt and MBS issued by agencies. Depository institutions subject to reporting under Parts 1 and 2 of the FR 2956 collection would be required to report all the transaction details, information, and fields as described in the applicable Trade Reporting and Compliance Engine (TRACE) technical documentation, FAQs, and guides located at https:// www.finra.org/filing-reporting/trace/ documentation.

Depository institutions subject to the reporting requirements of the proposed FR 2956 would electronically report transactions through the Board’s data collection vendor, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), utilizing its Trade Reporting and Compliance Engine (TRACE). Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 2956 is authorized by sections 2A and 11 of the Federal Reserve Act (‘‘FRA’’). Section 2A of the FRA requires that the Board and the FOMC maintain long-run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates. Section 11 of the FRA authorizes the Board to require reports from depository institutions as it may deem necessary and authorizes the Board to prescribe reports of liabilities and assets from insured depository institutions to enable the Board to discharge its responsibility to monitor and control monetary and credit aggregates. The obligation to respond to the FR 2956 would be mandatory. The information collected through the FR 2956 would not be considered confidential. Consultation outside the agency: As part of an interagency workgroup, the Board has consulted with the U.S. Treasury Department, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity and Futures Trading Commission, and FINRA on this collection.
