Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 20778 [2021-08227]

Download as PDF 20778 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 75 / Wednesday, April 21, 2021 / Notices paperwork burden associated with rule 17g–1’s requirements is two hours, one hour each for a compliance attorney and the board of directors as a whole. The time spent by a compliance attorney includes time spent filing reports with the Commission for fidelity losses (if any) as well as paperwork associated with any notices to directors, and managing any updates to the bond and the joint agreement (if one exists). The time spent by the board of directors as a whole includes any time spent initially establishing the bond, as well as time spent on annual updates and approvals. The Commission staff therefore estimates the total ongoing paperwork burden hours per year for all funds required by rule 17g–1 to be 4,400 hours (2,200 funds × 2 hours = 4,400 hours). Commission staff continues to estimate that the filing and reporting requirements of rule 17g–1 do not entail any external cost burdens. These estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act. These estimates are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of Commission rules. The collection of information required by Rule 17g–1 is mandatory and will not be kept confidential. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
