SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The OCC is proposing to extend the approval for the following information collection:

Title: Examination Questionnaire.

OMB Control No.: 1557-0199.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.

Type of Review: Regular review.

Abstract: The OCC has revised its Examination Questionnaire and updated the estimated burden hours to adjust for the reduction in the number of national banks. Completed Examination Questionnaires provide the OCC with information needed to properly evaluate the effectiveness of the examination process and agency communications. The OCC will use the information to identify problems or trends that may impair the effectiveness of the examination process, to identify ways to improve its service to the banking industry, and to analyze staff and training needs. A questionnaire is provided to each national bank at the conclusion of their supervisory cycle (12 or 18-month period). A banker may now choose to complete this questionnaire on National BankNet, the OCC's extranet site.

Burden Estimates:

Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,565.

Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent per Year: 0.89.

Estimated Number of Responses: 1,393.

Estimated Time per response: 10 minutes.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Annual Burden: 232 hours.

Comments: A 60-day Federal Register notice was issued on July 22, 2010 (75 FR 42825). No comments were received. Comments continue to be invited on:

(a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the information has practical utility;

(b) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the information collection burden;

(c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
