This proposed rule would amend regulations of the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) to reinstate reporting requirements for the 2014 BE-10, Benchmark Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad. Benchmark surveys are conducted every five years; the prior survey covered 2009. The benchmark survey covers the universe of U.S. direct investment abroad, and is BEA's most comprehensive survey of such investment in terms of subject matter. For the 2014 benchmark survey, BEA proposes changes in the data items collected. No changes are proposed to the reporting requirements for the survey. This mandatory survey would be conducted under the authority of the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act (the Act). Unlike most other BEA surveys conducted pursuant to the Act, a response would be required from persons subject to the reporting requirements of the BE-10, Benchmark Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad, whether or not they are contacted by BEA, in order to insure that respondents subject to the requirements for U.S. direct investment abroad are identified.
Proposed Data Sharing Activity
Document Number: 2014-17006
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-21
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis
The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) plans to provide to the Bureau of the Census (Census) certain business data collected on its benchmark and annual surveys of U.S. direct investment abroad and foreign direct investment in the United States for statistical purposes exclusively. In accordance with the requirement of Section 524(d) of the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA), we are providing the opportunity for public comment on this data sharing action. BEA will provide data collected in its surveys to link with data from the Census Company Organization Survey (COS). The linked data will be used for several purposes by both agencies, such as validating data collected on, and improving the sample of, the COS and assisting both agencies in developing specific questionnaire language to measure topics related to economic globalization, such as international trade in contract manufacturing services and intellectual property. The BEA and Census Bureau may publish non-confidential aggregate reports (public use) that have cleared the BEA and Census Bureau disclosure reviews.
Direct Investment Surveys: BE-13, Survey of New Foreign Direct Investment in the United States
Document Number: 2014-12159
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis
This proposed rule would amend regulations of the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) to reinstate the reporting requirements for the BE-13, Survey of New Foreign Direct Investment in the United States, which was discontinued in 2009. BEA is proposing to reinstate this survey to better measure Commerce Department efforts through the ``Build It Here, Sell It Everywhere'' initiative to expand foreign business investment in the United States and to ensure complete coverage of BEA's other foreign direct investment statistics. This survey will collect information on the acquisition or establishment of U.S. business enterprises by foreign investors, which was collected on the previous BE-13 survey, and information on expansions by existing U.S. affiliates of foreign companies, which was not previously collected. This mandatory survey would be conducted under the authority of the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act (the Act). Unlike other BEA surveys conducted pursuant to the Act, a response would be required from persons subject to the reporting requirements of the BE-13, Survey of New Foreign Direct Investment in the United States, whether or not they are contacted by BEA, in order to insure that respondents subject to the requirements for foreign direct investments in the U.S. are identified.
