SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OMB Number: 3133-0004.

Title: NCUA Call Report.

Form: NCUA Form 5300.

NCUA Form 5300, Call Report, is used to file quarterly financial and statistical data and are reported through NCUA's online portal, Credit Unions Online.

The financial and statistical information is essential to NCUA in carrying out its responsibility for supervising federal credit unions. The information also enables NCUA to monitor all federally insured credit unions with National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) insured share accounts.

Affected Public: Private Sector: Not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated No. of Respondents: 5,335.

Estimated No. of Responses per Respondent: 4.

Estimated Total Annual Responses: 21,340.

Estimated Burden Hours per Response: 4.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 85,360.

OMB Number: 3133-NEW.

Title: NCUA Profile.

Form: NCUA Form 4501A.

Type of Review: New collection.

Abstract: Sections 106 and 202 of the Federal Credit Union Act require federally insured credit unions to make Start Printed Page 39378financial reports to the NCUA. Section 741.6 prescribes the method in which federally insured credit unions must submit this information to NCUA. NCUA Form 4501A, Credit Union Profile, is used to obtain non-financial data relevant to regulation and supervision such as the names of senior management and volunteer officials, and are reported through NCUA's online portal, Credit Unions Online.

The financial and statistical information is essential to NCUA in carrying out its responsibility for supervising federal credit unions. The information also enables NCUA to monitor all federally insured credit unions with National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) insured share accounts.

Affected Public: Private Sector: Not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated No. of Respondents: 5,335.

Estimated No. of Responses per Respondent: 4.

Estimated Total Annual Responses: 21,340.

Estimated Burden Hours per Response: 2.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 42,480.

Reason for Change: Currently, the NCUA Call Report (Form 5300) and Profile (4501A) are cleared under OMB control number 3133-0004. At this time, NCUA plans to separate the two forms due to technology resources constraints that create different revision cycles. The Call Report will retain OMB control number 3133-0004 and NCUA will request a new control number for the Profile.

Call Report: Revisions are attributed to the issuance of accounting standards codifications (ASC) by the Financial Accounting Standards Board and other revisions needed to clarify the reporting for cash items. These revisions will not alter the estimated burden hours necessary to review the instructions and complete the filing. The amount of data elements removed compared to those added negates the difference in burden.

The burden hours reflect an adjustment to the number of respondents due to the decline in the number of federally insured credit unions, which has averaged approximately one percent per quarter. Specifically, the number of federally insured credit unions completing the Call Report dropped from 5,530 at March 31, 2018 to 5,335 at March 31, 2019. A decrease of 195 credit unions for a total reduction in burden hours of 47,360, partially due to the decline in credit unions (3,120 hours) and partially due to removal of the Profile burden (44,240 hours).

Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. The public is invited to submit comments concerning: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper execution of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the collection of information, 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 collection of the information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
