National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).


Request for comment.


The NCUA intends to submit the following information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). This information collection is published to obtain comments from the public. Section 721.1(h) of the NCUA Rules and Regulations regulates purchases by federally insured credit unions of indirect vehicle loans serviced by third-parties. 721.1(h) limits the aggregate amount of these loans serviced by any single third-party to a percentage of the credit union's net worth. This rule ensures that federally insured credit unions do not undertake undue risk with these purchases. This data collection enables NCUA to evaluate waiver requests of these limits.


Comments must be received on or before September 27, 2013.


Interested parties are invited to submit written comments to the NCUA Contact and the OMB Reviewer listed below:

I. Abstract and request for comments

NCUA is reinstating, with change, the collection for 3133-0171. NCUA Rules and Regulations § 701.21(h) establishes limits at federally-insured credit unions on the purchase of interests in indirect vehicle loans serviced by any particular third-party servicer. These indirect, outsourced programs create numerous risks to the credit union, and the rule ensures that these risks will not lead to significant negative impacts on the credit union's net worth and losses to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The rule allows a credit union to apply for a waiver of the limits, but to obtain a waiver the credit union must demonstrate to the NCUA that it understands the risks and has taken appropriate measures to monitor and protect itself against the risks. Because the waiver requests consist primarily of qualitative data, the NCUA call report system cannot be used for this collection.

The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the public for review.
