The OCC is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the following information collection:
Title: OCC Supplier Registration Form.

Abstract: Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank) required the OCC to develop and implement standards and procedures to ensure, to the maximum extent possible, the fair inclusion and utilization of minorities, women, and minority-owned and women-owned businesses in all business and activities of the agency at all levels, including procurement, insurance, and all types of contracts 
and to develop standards for coordinating technical assistance to such businesses.
In order to comply with the Congressional mandate to develop standards for the fair inclusion and utilization of minority-and women-owned businesses and to provide effective technical assistance to these businesses, the OCC developed an on-going system to collect up-to-date contact information and capabilities statements from potential suppliers. This information allows the OCC to update and enhance its internal database of interested minority- and women-owned businesses. This information also allows the OCC to measure the effectiveness of its technical assistance and outreach efforts and to target areas where additional outreach efforts are necessary.
On May 31, 2016, the OCC issued a 60-day notice soliciting comment on the information collection, 81 FR 34435. No comments were received. Comments continue to be invited on:
(1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the information has practical utility;
(2) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the collection of information;
(3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
(4) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and
