SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract and Request for Comments

NCUA is requesting reinstatement, with change, of the previously approved collection of information related to NCUA's regulation on PCA, 12 CFR part 702 (Part 702), which provides the requirements for PCA for federally insured credit unions (FICUs). Section 216 of the Federal Credit Union Act (12 U.S.C. 1790d) mandates the requirements of PCA. Section 216 requires the NCUA Board to (1) adopt, by regulation, a system of PCA to restore the net worth of inadequately capitalized FICUs; and (2) develop an alternative system of PCA for new credit unions that carries out the purpose of PCA while allowing reasonable time to build net worth to an adequate level. Part 702 implements the statutory mandate by establishing a system of PCA to restore the net worth of inadequately capitalized FICUs. To achieve this, various information collections are required on occasion as the circumstances require.

In the Federal Register of January 22, 2015 (80 FR 3256), NCUA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. NCUA received no comments.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the locations 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.
