Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Correction
The FDIC published a document in the Federal Register of December 27, 2007, concerning a notice of information collection to be submitted to OMB for review and approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The document contained an outdated estimate of time per response for the proposed survey with the result that the estimated total annual burden for the survey and the total burden for the overall collection were incorrect. In addition, with regard to the case studies, the number of respondents and the estimated time per response for the in-depth interview were outdated and, as a result, the estimated total burden for the case studies aspect of the collection was overstated. For purposes of clarity, information concerning the estimated burden for the collection is re-printed in its entirety.
Minority and Women Outreach Program Contracting
This proposal would amend existing FDIC regulations regarding the FDIC's contracting activities under its Minority and Women Outreach Program (MWOP). These are relatively minor amendments designed to eliminate several provisions rendered obsolete by significant reductions in FDIC contracting activities and decreases in FDIC staff to monitor the contracting activities of Minority and Women-Owned Businesses (MWOBs).
