SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposal to renew the following currently-approved collection of information:

Title: Asset Purchaser Eligibility Certification.

OMB Number: 3064-0135.

Form Number: FDIC 7300/06, “Purchaser Eligibility Certification;” 7300/07 “Pre-Qualification Request;” and 7300/08, “Contact Information Form.”

Affected Public: Business or other financial institutions.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 600.

Estimated Time Per Response: 1.0 hour (Purchaser Eligibility Certification, 30 minutes; Pre-Qualification Request, 20 minutes; and Contact Information Form, 10 minutes).

Total Annual Burden: 600 hours.

General Description of Collection: The FDIC uses the Purchaser Eligibility Certification form, FDIC Form No. 7300/06, to identify prospective bidders who are not eligible to purchase assets of failed institutions from the FDIC. Specifically, section 11(p) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act prohibits the sale of assets of failed institutions to certain individuals or entities that profited or engaged in wrongdoing at the expense of those failed institutions, or seriously mismanaged failed institutions. The Pre-Qualification Request form, FDIC Form No. 7300/07, is designed to determine which prospective bidders are qualified to bid on particular types of assets offered by the FDIC. In addition, the FDIC uses the Contact Information Form, FDIC Form No. 7300/08, to determine the type of assets a prospective bidder is interested in, and to facilitate communication with the prospective bidder.

Request for Comment

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.
