Title: Advance of Loan Funds and Budgetary Control and Other Related Burdens. OMB Control Number: 0572–0015. Expiration Date of Approval: February 28, 2022. Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection. Abstract: The Rural Utilities Service, an Agency with the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, administers the electric loan and loan guarantee program authorized under the Rural Electrification Act of 1936 (7 U.S.C. 901 et seq). In order to protect and ensure the Government’s security interest in loans, and in exercise of due diligence, electric borrowers furnish information to RUS regarding the condition, financial or otherwise, related to expenditure of loan funds. This information collection is necessary to comply with applicable provisions of the RUS loan contract. RUS borrowers submit requisitions to RUS for funds for project costs incurred. Insured loan funds will be advanced only for projects which are included in the RUS approved borrowers workplan or approved amendment and in an approved loan, as amended. The process of loan advances establishes the beginning of the audit trail of the use of loan funds which is required for subsequent RUS compliance audits. There are two official forms included in this information collection, RUS Forms 595 and 219. The RUS Form 595 is used as a requisition for advances of funds. The form helps to assure that loan funds are PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 advanced only for the budget purposes and amount approved by RUS. According to the applicable provisions of the RUS loan contract, borrowers must certify with each request for funds to be approved for advance, which funds are for projects previously approved. When a prospective borrower requests and is granted a RUS loan, a loan contract is established between the Federal government, acting through the RUS Administrator, and the borrower. At the time this contract is entered into, the borrower must provide RUS with a list of projects for which loan funds will be spent, along with an itemized list of the estimated costs of these projects. Thus, the borrower receives a loan based upon estimated cost figures. The RUS Form 219, Inventory of Work Orders, is one of the documents the borrower submits to RUS to support actual expenditures and an advance of loan funds. The form also serves as a connecting link and provides an audit trail that originates with the advance of funds and terminates with evidence supporting the propriety of expenditures for construction or retirement projects. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.56 hours per response. Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions; Business or other for profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 598. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 15.54. Estimated Number of Total Responses: 9,292. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 14,523 hours. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Pamela Bennett, Rural Development Innovation Center, Regulations Management Division, at (202) 720–9639. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Christopher A. McLean, Acting Administrator, Rural Utilities Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 253001 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30913 I. Abstract The Quarterly Survey of Insurance Transactions by U.S. Insurance Companies with Foreign Persons (Form BE–45) is a survey that collects data from U.S. persons who engage in covered insurance transactions. A U.S. person means any individual, branch, partnership, associated group, association, estate, trust, corporation, or other organization (whether or not organized under the laws of any State), resident in the United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. A U.S. person must report if they had combined transactions in the covered insurance services with foreign persons that exceeded $8 million (based on absolute value) for the previous calendar year or are expected to exceed that amount during the current calendar year. The data are needed to monitor U.S. trade in insurance services, to analyze the impact of these cross-border services on the U.S. and foreign economies, to compile and improve the U.S. economic accounts, to support U.S. commercial policy on trade in services, to conduct trade promotion, and to improve the ability of U.S. businesses to identify and evaluate market opportunities. The data are used in estimating the trade in insurance services component of the U.S. international transactions accounts (ITAs) and national income and product accounts (NIPAs). The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is proposing a single modification to the survey reporting requirements and a change to the survey due date, beginning with reporting for first quarter 2022. The proposed modifications to the BE–45 survey would allow BEA to increase the quality and usefulness of BEA’s statistics on trade in insurance services. BEA proposes to adjust the reporting requirements of the survey so they are applied based on a combined threshold for premiums, losses, and auxiliary services, for the eight covered transaction categories: (1) Premiums earned on reinsurance assumed from insurance companies resident abroad; (2) losses incurred on reinsurance assumed from insurance companies resident abroad; (3) premiums earned on primary insurance sold to foreign persons; (4) losses incurred on primary insurance sold to foreign persons; (5) premiums incurred on reinsurance ceded to insurance companies resident abroad; (6) losses recovered on reinsurance ceded to insurance companies resident abroad; (7) receipts for auxiliary insurance services; and (8) payments for auxiliary insurance E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1
