Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).


Notice of information collection to be submitted to OMB for review and approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act, and Request for Comment.


In accordance with requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the FDIC 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 FDIC, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the renewal of existing information collections, as required by the PRA. On February 23, 2010 (75 FR 8076), the FDIC solicited public comment for a 60-day period on renewal of the following information collection: Occasional Qualitative Surveys information collection (OMB No. 3064-0127). One comment was received. (A customer apparently complained to a bank and thanked the FDIC for its support.) Therefore, the FDIC hereby gives notice of submission of its request for renewal to OMB for review.


Comments must be submitted on or before July 6, 2010.


Interested parties are invited to submit written comments. All comments should refer to the name of the collection. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:

  • E-mail: Include the name of the collection in the subject line of the message.

The FDIC is proposing to renew this collection:

Title: Occasional Qualitative Surveys.

Estimated Number of Respondents and Burden Hours:

FDIC documentNumber of surveysHours per surveyNumber of respondentsBurden hours
Occasional Qualitative Surveys15185012,750

General Description of Collection: The information collected in these surveys is anecdotal in nature, that is, samples are not necessarily random, the results are not necessarily representative of a larger class of potential respondents, and the goal is not to produce a statistically valid and reliable database. Rather, the surveys are expected to yield anecdotal information about the particular experiences and opinions of members of the public, primarily staff at respondent banks or bank customers. The information is used to improve the way FDIC relates to its clients, to develop agendas for regulatory or statutory change, and in some cases to simply learn how particular policies or programs are working, or are perceived in particular cases.

Request for Comment

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.

Dated at Washington, DC this 1st day of June, 2010.
