ADDRESSES: Direct all PRA comments to Nicole Ongele, FCC, via email PRA@ fcc.gov and to nicole.ongele@fcc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information about the information collection, contact Nicole Ongele, (202) 418–2991. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control No.: 3060–1217. Title: Ensuring Continuity of 911 Communications Report and Order, PS Docket No. 14–174, FCC 15–98. Form No.: N/A (Disclosure required to be made to subscribers). Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or for-profit. Number of Respondents and Reponses: 570 respondents; 570 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 12 hours (on average) per initial notification, varies by respondent. Frequency of Response: Annual reporting requirement and Third party disclosure requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in sections 1, 4(i), and 251(e)(3) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 151, 154(i), 251(e)(3); section 101 of the NET 911 Improvement Act of 2008, Public Law 110–283, 47 U.S.C. 615a–1; and section 106 of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, Public Law 111–260, 47 U.S.C. 615c. Total Annual Burden: 12 hours. Total Annual Cost: No Cost. Needs and Uses: Section 9.20 of the Commission’s rules places limited backup power obligations on providers of facilities-based fixed, residential voice services that are not line-powered to ensure that such service providers meet their obligation to provide access to 911 service during a power outage, and to provide clarity for the role of consumers and their communities should they elect not to purchase backup power. Specifically, we require providers to disclose to subscribers the following information: (1) Availability of backup power sources; (2) service limitations with and without backup power during a power outage; (3) purchase and replacement options; (4) expected backup power duration; (5) proper usage and storage conditions for the backup power source; (6) subscriber backup VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:44 Sep 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 power self-testing and monitoring instructions; and (7) backup power warranty details, if any. Each element of this information must be given to subscribers both at the point of sale and annually thereafter, as described in the rule. The disclosure requirements are intended to equip subscribers with necessary information to purchase and maintain a source of backup power to enhance their ability to maintain access to reliable 911 service from their homes. We permit providers to convey both the initial and annual disclosures and information described above by any means reasonably calculated to reach the individual subscriber. For example, a provider may meet this obligation through a combination of disclosures via email, an online billing statement, or other digital or electronic means for subscribers that communicate with the provider through these means. For a subscriber that does not communicate with the provider through email and/or online billing statements—such as someone who ordered service on the phone or in a physical store and receives a paper bill by regular mail— email would not be a means reasonably calculated to reach that subscriber.

The FDIC anticipates that products developed as part of innovation pilot programs will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of bank operations, and eventually, examinations, while increasing transparency and ultimately reducing the cost of regulatory compliance for participating institutions. In addition, the FDIC anticipates that proposals provided in connection with the innovation pilot programs will involve cutting-edge innovations and novel approaches or applications involving a banking product, service, system, or activity that benefits and can lead to better outcomes for consumers. As part of an innovation pilot program, innovators may request information from banks and other members of the public outside of their normal course of business.

This information is intended to allow banks and the FDIC to analyze the health of the overall banking system, critical financial sectors, or national, regional or local economic conditions (i.e., horizontal analysis). Additionally, bank specific information may be collected in order to allow for better insights into current and escalating risks across all aspects of banking.

The annual burden for this information collection is estimated to be 4,000 hours. This represents an increase of hours from the current burden estimate and also a change in focus. In particular, when this information collection was first obtained, it included the burden imposed on the innovators and partner banks. In review of this information collection, the FDIC has decided to transfer the burden imposed on innovators to existing information collection 3064–0072 entitled, ‘‘Acquisition Services Information Requirements,’’ which is related to the FDIC’s procurement process. The remaining hours in this information collection, which have been updated and increased, reflect the burden imposed on banks and other members of the public in connection with innovation pilot programs.

    General Description of Collection: The FDIC seeks to engage and 
collaborate with innovators in the financial, non-financial, and 
technology sectors to, among other things, identify, develop and 
promote technology-driven innovations among community and other banks 
in a manner that ensures the safety and soundness of FDIC-supervised

provide a regulatory environment in which the FDIC, in conjunction with 
individual proposals collected from innovators will provide tailored 
regulatory and supervisory assistance, when appropriate, to facilitate 
the testing of innovative and advanced technologies, products, 
services, systems, or activities.
    The FDIC anticipates that products developed as part of innovation 
pilot programs will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of bank 
operations, and eventually, examinations, while increasing transparency 
and ultimately reducing the cost of regulatory compliance for 
participating institutions. In addition, the FDIC anticipates that 
proposals provided in connection with the innovation pilot programs 
will involve cutting-edge innovations and novel approaches or 
applications involving a banking product, service, system, or activity 
that benefits and can lead to better outcomes for consumers.
    As part of an innovation pilot program, innovators may request 
information from banks and other members of the public outside of their 
normal course of business. Any information provided by banks and other 
members of the public will be provided on a voluntary basis. FDIC staff 
may similarly request information on a voluntary basis from banks or 
other members of the public to evaluate the products or services 
developed in the pilot programs. This information is intended to allow 
banks and the FDIC to analyze the health of the overall banking system,

is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the information collection, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including through the use of automated
