I. Abstract and Request for Comments
NCUA is reinstating the collection for 3133-0169. FICUs will apply to the NCUA for approval to purchase assets or assume liabilities of privately-insured credit unions or other financial institutions. NCUA will use the information in the application to determine the safety and soundness of the transaction and risk to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).
NCUA anticipates a FICU's application for approval to purchase assets or assume liabilities of a privately-insured credit union or other financial institution would consist of a cover letter and any transaction documents already prepared by the FICU in conjunction with the anticipated purchase or assumption. NCUA believes this would take one hour or less to prepare and transmit the cover letter and attach any additional documents; therefore, there is no increase or decrease in the burden for this data collection. The term “transaction documents” include contracts, agreements, letters, offers, or similar documents already created between two parties as evidence of a transaction or negotiation. NCUA does not require FICUs to prepare these documents and believes they are created in the regular course of business. Therefore, NCUA has used one burden hour per credit union per filing required from an FICU to prepare a letter requesting NCUA's approval of the transaction and describing the transaction.
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.
