Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 35 / Wednesday, February 24, 2021 / Notices incur severe adverse impact, as the firm graduated from the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Program on October 14, 2019 and is not eligible therefore to bid on any solicitations set aside for 8(a) participants. The contracting activity indicated that if the project is not added to the AbilityOne Program, it would remain in the 8(a) Program. The Committee also published a notice of proposed Procurement List addition in the Federal Register on November 20, 2020, and did not receive any comments from any interested persons, including from the incumbent contractor. This addition will not create a public hardship and has limited effect on the public at large, but, rather, will create new jobs for other affected parties—people with significant disabilities in the AbilityOne program who otherwise face challenges locating employment. Moreover, this addition will enable Federal customer operations to continue without interruption. Michael R. Jurkowski, Deputy Director, Business & PL Operations.

Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or 
sponsor. ``Collection of Information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) 
and 5 CFR 1320.3 and includes agency requests or requirements that 
members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide 
information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44

    Title: Large Trader Reporting for Physical Commodity Swaps, (OMB

    Abstract: Part 20 of the Commission's regulations (``Reporting

and uncleared physical commodity swaps. Reporting entities are those 
persons that are either ``clearing members'' or ``swap dealers'' that 
are otherwise not clearing members. For purposes of part 20, reporting 
parties are required to submit data on positions on a futures 
equivalent basis so as to allow the Commission to assess a trader's 
market impact across differently structured but linked derivatives 
instruments and markets. This renewal updates the total requested 
burden based on available reported data.
    With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites

use;

the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information 
on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
    All comments must be submitted in English, or if not, accompanied 
by an English translation. Comments will be posted as received to 
http://www.cftc.gov. You should submit only information that you wish 
to make available publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider
