Estimated average hours per response: 2.5. Estimated annual burden hours: 50. General description of report: The FR 2320 collects select parent only and consolidated balance sheet and income statement financial data and organizational structure data from SLHCs exempt from filing other Federal Reserve regulatory reports. Specifically, the FR 2320 collects data on the assets, liabilities, equity, and income of the organization. In addition, the FR 2320 collects information about and changes to the organization’s subsidiaries, management, capital structure, and operations. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 2320 is authorized by section 10(b)(2) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act (HOLA), which states that ‘‘each [SLHC] and each subsidiary thereof, other than a savings E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 41 / Wednesday, March 2, 2022 / Notices lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 association, shall file with the Board, such reports as may be required by the Board.’’ 1 Section 10(b)(2) of HOLA also states that ‘‘each report shall contain such information concerning the operations of such savings and loan holding company and its subsidiaries as the Board may require.’’ 2 The FR 2320 is mandatory. Generally, in the case of tiered SLHCs that are exempt SLHCs, only the top-tier SLHC must file the FR 2320 for the consolidated SLHC organization.

In addition, lower-tier SLHCs may voluntarily file the FR 2320 or may be required to file in addition to the top-tier SLHC if it is determined that such a filing is necessary to accurately assess the impact that the activities or financial condition of the lower-tier SLHC has on its subsidiary savings association(s). The information collected in response to line items 24, 25, and 26 is expected to be nonpublic commercial or financial information, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent, and thus may be kept confidential by the Board pursuant to exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).3 Although the remainder of the FR 2320 is generally made available to the public upon request, a reporting SLHC may request confidential treatment for responses to other items pursuant to exemption 4 of the FOIA if those responses contain nonpublic commercial or financial information, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent.4 Current actions: On November 23, 2022, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (86 FR 66554) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the FR 2320.

This proposed information collection activity provides a means to garner customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving customer service delivery as discussed in Section 280 of OMB Circular A–11 at https:// www.performance.gov/cx/a11-280.pdf. As discussed in OMB guidance, agencies should identify their highestSUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11709 impact customer journeys (using customer volume, annual program cost, and/or knowledge of customer priority as weighting factors) and select touchpoints/transactions within those journeys to collect feedback. These results will be used to improve the delivery of Federal services and programs. It will also provide government-wide data on customer experience that can be displayed on www.performance.gov to help build transparency and accountability of Federal programs to the customers they serve. As a general matter, these information collections will not result in any new system of records containing privacy information and will not ask questions of a sensitive nature, such as sexual behavior and attitudes, religious beliefs, and other matters that are commonly considered private. GSA will only submit collections if they meet the following criteria. • The collections are voluntary; • The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours or burden-hours per respondent) and are low-cost for both the respondents and the Federal Government; • The collections are noncontroversial and do not raise issues of concern to other Federal agencies; • Any collection is targeted to the solicitation of opinions from respondents who have experience with the program or may have experience with the program in the near future; • Personally identifiable information (PII) is collected only to the extent necessary and is not retained; • Information gathered is intended to be used for general service improvement and program management purposes • Upon agreement between OMB and the agency all or a subset of information may be released as part of A–11, Section 280 requirements only on performance.gov. Summaries of customer research and user testing activities may be included in publicfacing customer journey maps or summaries. • Additional release of data must be done coordinated with OMB. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency, its customers and stakeholders, and OMB as it monitors agency compliance on Section 280. These responses will inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on services will be unavailable. E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1

    General description of report: The FR 2320 collects select parent 
only and consolidated balance sheet and income statement financial data 
and organizational structure data from SLHCs exempt from filing other 
Federal Reserve regulatory reports. Specifically, the FR 2320 collects 
data on the assets, liabilities, equity, and income of the 
organization. In addition, the FR 2320 collects information about and 
changes to the organization's subsidiaries, management, capital 
structure, and operations.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 2320 is authorized 
by section 10(b)(2) of the Home Owners' Loan Act (HOLA), which states 
that ``each [SLHC] and each subsidiary thereof, other than a savings

association, shall file with the Board, such reports as may be required

    The FR 2320 is mandatory. Generally, in the case of tiered SLHCs 
that are exempt SLHCs, only the top-tier SLHC must file the FR 2320 for 
the consolidated SLHC organization. However, in certain cases, a lower-
tier SLHC may be required to file the FR 2320 instead of the top-tier 
SLHC if it is determined by the district Federal Reserve Bank that the 
lower-tier SLHC more closely reflects the risk profile, assets, and 
liabilities of the subsidiary savings association(s). In addition, 
lower-tier SLHCs may voluntarily file the FR 2320 or may be required to 
file in addition to the top-tier SLHC if it is determined that such a 
filing is necessary to accurately assess the impact that the activities 
or financial condition of the lower-tier SLHC has on its subsidiary 
savings association(s).
    The information collected in response to line items 24, 25, and 26 
is expected to be nonpublic commercial or financial information, which 
is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent, 
and thus may be kept confidential by the Board pursuant to exemption 4 
of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).\3\ Although the remainder of 
the FR 2320 is generally made available to the public upon request, a 
reporting SLHC may request confidential treatment for responses to 
other items pursuant to exemption 4 of the FOIA if those responses 
contain nonpublic commercial or financial information, which is both 
customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent.\4\
