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).
Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request
The OCC and FDIC (Agencies), as part of their continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invite the public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed revisions to a continuing information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The Agencies may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The Agencies are soliciting comments on proposed revisions to the information collections titled: ``Interagency Bank Merger Act Application.'' The General Information and Instructions section has been revised to delete information about the Bank Insurance Fund (BIF), the Savings Association Insurance Fund (SAIF), and the Oakar statutory provisions. In addition, corresponding legal citations on the form to these provisions are being deleted. The Agencies also solicit comment on the renewal without change to the information collections titled: ``Interagency Biographical and Financial Report'' and ``Interagency Notice of Change in Control.'' The OCC solicits comment on the renewal without change to its ``Interagency Notice of Change in Directors or Senior Executive Officers'' information collection. Additionally, the OCC is making other clarifying changes to the Comptroller's Licensing Manual (Manual). The Agencies are also giving notice that the information collection has been submitted to OMB for review.
