SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the Federal Register issue of July 6, 2009 (74 FR 32035), the agencies, in conjunction with the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), requested comment on the proposed guidance on funding and liquidity risk management (proposed Guidance). The proposed Guidance summarizes the principles of sound liquidity risk management that the agencies have issued in the past and, where appropriate, brings them into conformance with the “Principles for Sound Liquidity Risk Management and Supervision” issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) in September 2008. While the BCBS liquidity principles primarily focuses on large internationally active financial institutions, the proposed guidance emphasizes supervisory expectations for all domestic financial institutions including banks, thrifts and credit unions.

The Federal Reserve is correcting the Affected Public and Estimated Burden sections of Part III (Paperwork Reduction Act) to read:

Affected Public

FRB: Bank holding companies, state member banks, state-licensed branches and agencies of foreign banks (other than insured branches), and corporations organized or operating under sections 25 or 25A of the Federal Reserve Act (Agreement corporations and Edge corporations).

Estimate of Respondent Burden:

FRB: Number of respondents: 6,156 total (29 large (over $100 billion in assets); 117 mid-size ($10—$100 billion); and 6,010 small (less than $10 billion).

Burden under Section 14: 720 hours per large respondent, 240 hours per mid-size respondent, and 80 hours per small respondent.

Burden under Section 20: 4 hours per month.

Total estimated annual burden: 825,248 hours.

In addition, the OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, and NCUA are correcting footnote 4 (74 FR 32038) to read:

Unless otherwise indicated, this interagency guidance uses the term “financial institutions” or “institutions” to include banks, saving associations, credit unions, affiliated holding companies, state and federally chartered Start Printed Page 40868U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks, and Edge and agreement corporations. Federally insured credit unions (FICUs) do not have holding company affiliations and therefore references to holding companies contained within this guidance are not applicable to FICUs.
