I. Abstract and Request for Comments
NCUA is amending the currently approved collection for 3133-0004. Two specific forms are used, NCUA Form 5300 and NCUA Profile Form 4501A, also known as the Call Report and Profile, respectively. Section 741.6 of the NCUA Rules and Regulations requires all federally insured credit unions to submit a Call Report quarterly. 12 CFR 741.6. The information enables NCUA to monitor credit unions whose share accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). NCUA uses the information collected from Start Printed Page 4510these Call Reports to fulfill its mission of supervising credit unions, and the Federal Reserve Board uses the information to monitor and control the nation's money supply and the system of financial institutions. Congress and various state legislatures use this information to monitor, regulate, and control credit unions and financial institutions. The changes made to the Profile and Call Report forms for March 2014 will provide data to assist the National Credit Union Administration in assessing regulatory compliance and financial and operational risks. There is a decrease of 8,290 hours from the last submission (2013). The decrease is a result of an adjustment to the number of credit unions completing the Call Report from 6,864 to an estimated 6,550 for March 2014. This decline is from credit union mergers and liquidations.
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.
