Final Approval under OMB Delegated Authority of the Extension for Three Start Printed Page 55958Years, With Revision, of the Following Information Collection:

Report title: Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management.

Agency form number: FR 4198.

OMB control number: 7100-0326.

Effective Date: Immediately.

Frequency: Annually.

Respondents: Bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, state-licensed branches and agencies of foreign banks (other than insured branches), corporations organized or operating under sections 25 or 25A of the Federal Reserve Act (agreement corporations and Edge corporations), and state member banks.

Estimated number of respondents: Implementing recordkeeping, 30; ongoing recordkeeping, 4,789.

Estimated average hours per response: Implementing recordkeeping, 160 hours; ongoing recordkeeping, 32 hours.

Estimated annual burden hours: 158,048 hours.

General description of report: The Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management (Guidance) [1] states that financial institutions should develop and document liquidity risk management policies and procedures commensurate with the institution's complexity, risk profile, and scope of operations. Sections 3 and 6 of the Guidance provide that financial institutions should maintain such policies and procedures. Section 6 of the Guidance states that financial institutions should have a contingency funding plan (CFP) that sufficiently addresses potential adverse liquid events and emergency cash flow requirements, and section 34 of the Guidance states that the CFP should be documented.

Legal authorization and confidentiality: The recordkeeping provisions of the Guidance are authorized pursuant to sections 9(6), 25, and 25A of the Federal Reserve Act [2] (for state member banks, agreement corporations, and Edge corporations, respectively); section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act [3] (for bank holding companies); section 10(b)(3) of the Home Owners' Loan Act [4] (for savings and loan holding companies); and section 7(c)(2) of the International Banking Act [5] (for state-licensed branches and agencies of foreign banks, other than insured branches). Because the recordkeeping provisions are contained within guidance, which is nonbinding, they are voluntary.[6] There are no reporting forms associated with this information collection.

Because these records would be maintained at each banking organization, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) would only be implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or supervision of a financial institution, this information may be considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in “examination, operating, or condition reports” obtained in the bank supervisory process (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). In addition, the information may also be kept confidential under exemption 4 of the FOIA, which protects “commercial or financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or confidential” (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).

Current actions: On June 25, 2019, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (84 FR 29862) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management. The Board proposed to revise the FR 4198 to account for all of the recordkeeping provisions set forth in the Guidance related to liquidity risk management policies, procedures, and assumptions, and CFPs. The comment period for this notice expired on August 26, 2019. The Board did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed.
