OTS may not conduct or sponsor an information collection, and respondents are not required to respond to an information collection, unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number. As part of the Start Printed Page 12419approval process, we invite comments on the following information collection.

Title of Proposal: Notice of Hiring or Indemnifying Senior Executive Officers or Directors.

OMB Number: 1550-0047.

Form Numbers: 1606; 1624.

Description: 12 U.S.C. 1831i requires OTS to make a determination as to the hiring or appointment of senior executive officers or directors at savings institutions or thrift holding companies. The OTS's determination must be based upon an evaluation of the individual's competence, experience, character, and integrity. The information required by the collection is necessary to make this determination. Without this information, the OTS cannot accomplish the statutory requirement designed to protect the interests of the Deposit Insurance Fund. The OTS has delegated the Regional Director, or his designee, at each Regional Office the authority to approve or deny these requests. They evaluate the individual's educational and professional experience to determine competence in the proposed position. An evaluation of the individual's proprietary interests identifies conflicts of interest that may render such person unsuitable for the position. Finally, information such as an individual's criminal offenses, lawsuits, and related disclosures, enable further evaluation of the individual's integrity and character.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 120.

Estimated Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Total Burden: 280 hours.
