These actions were taken in accordance with the Monetary Control Act of 1980, which requires that, over the long run, fees for Federal Reserve priced services be established based on all direct and indirect costs, including the PSAF. DATES: The new fee schedules become effective January 3, 2022. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions regarding the fee schedules: Susan Foley, Senior Associate Director, (202) 452–3596; Kristopher Natoli, Manager, (202) 452–3227; Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems. For questions regarding the PSAF: Casey Clark, Assistant Director, (202) 912–7978; Grace Milbank, Lead Financial Institution Policy Analyst, (202) 263–4828, Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems. Copies of the 2022 fee schedules for the Check Service are available from the Board, the Federal Reserve Banks, or the Federal Reserve Financial Services website at www.FRBservices.org. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Private Sector Adjustment Factor, Priced Services Cost Recovery, and Overview of 2022 Price Changes A. Overview—Each year, as required by the Monetary Control Act of 1980, PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Reserve Banks set fees for priced services provided to financial institutions.1 These fees are set to recover, over the long run, all direct and indirect costs and imputed costs, including financing costs, taxes, and certain other expenses, as well as the return on equity (profit) that would have been earned if a private-sector business provided the services. The imputed costs and imputed profit are collectively referred to as the private-sector adjustment factor (PSAF).2 B. Long-run cost recovery—Although the Monetary Control Act does not define ‘‘over the long run,’’ the Board has generally measured long-run cost recovery for mature services to be over a 10-year rolling timeframe.3 In any given year, one or more priced services may under-recover for a variety of reasons, including due to significant investments to enhance a service. Through 2020, the Reserve Banks’ long-run cost recovery was 103.5 percent of their total expenses (including imputed costs) and targeted after-tax profits or return on equity 1 On August 5, 2019, the Board announced that the Reserve Banks will develop the FedNowSM Service, an interbank real-time gross settlement (RTGS) service with integrated clearing functionality, to support the provision of end-toend faster payment services. The Board anticipates the FedNow Service will be available in 2023. Following the introduction of the FedNow Service, the Board will regularly disclose the service’s cost recovery and will monitor progress toward matching revenues and costs. 2 The business lines subject to the MCA are the Fedwire® Funds Service, National Settlement Service, Fedwire Securities Service, FedACH® Services, and Check Services. 3 The Board views a 10-year cost recovery expectation as appropriate for assessing mature services, which are those that have achieved a critical mass of customer participation and generally have stable and predictable volumes, costs, and revenues.

    General Description of Collection: Section 24 of the Federal 
Deposit Insurance (FDI Act), 12 U.S.C. 1831a, limits investments and 
other activities in which state banks may engage, as principal, to 
those permissible for national banks and those approved by the FDIC 
under procedures set forth in part 362 of the FDIC's Rules and 
Regulations, 12 CFR part 362. With certain exceptions, section 24 of 
the FDI Act limits the activities and investments of state banks to 
those activities and investments that are permissible for national 
banks. In addition, the statute prohibits a state bank from directly 
engaging, as a principal, in any activity or investment that is not 
permissible for a national bank, or indirectly through a subsidiary in 
an activity or investment that is not permissible for a subsidiary of a 
national bank, unless such bank meets its minimum capital requirements 
and the FDIC determines that the activity or investment does not pose a 
significant risk to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF). The FDIC can make 
such a determination for exception by regulation or by order. Section 
28(a), 12 U.S.C. 1831e, similarly limits the investments and activities 
of state savings associations and their service corporations to those 
permitted by federal savings associations and their service 
corporations, absent FDIC approval. Part 362 details the activities 
that state banks or their subsidiaries may engage in, under certain 
criteria and conditions and identifies the information that state banks 
must furnish to the FDIC in order to obtain the FDIC's approval or non-
objection. Part 362 also applies to the activities and investments of 
state savings associations and their subsidiaries.

    General Description of Collection: The elements of this collection 
are required under sections 503 and 504 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, 
15 U.S.C. 6803, 6804. The collection mandates notice requirements and 
restrictions on a financial institution's ability to disclose nonpublic 
personal information about consumers to nonaffiliated third parties.
    There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. 
The overall decrease in burden hours is the result of economic 
fluctuation. In particular, the estimated number of respondents to the 
Consumer Opt-out component increased, the number of respondents to the 
other components decreased and the hours per response and frequency of 
responses have remained the same.

Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information 
is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimates 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 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All 
comments will become a matter of public record.
