Extension: Form ADV-E. OMB Control No. 3235-0361, SEC File No. 270-

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (the ``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget (``OMB'') a request for extension of the 
previously approved collection of information discussed below.
    Form ADV-E (17 CFR 279.8) is the cover sheet for certificates of 
accounting filed pursuant to rule 206(4)-2 under the Investment 
Advisers Act of 1940 (17 CFR 275.206(4)-2). The rule further requires 
that the public accountant file with the Commission a Form ADV-E and 
accompanying statement within four business days of the resignation, 
dismissal, removal or other termination of its engagement. The annual 
burden is approximately three minutes per respondent.
    The estimate of burden hours set forth above is made solely for the 
purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and is not derived from a 
comprehensive or even representative survey or study of the cost of 
Commission rules and forms.
    The information provided on Form ADV-E is mandatory. Responses will 
not be kept confidential. An agency may not conduct or sponsor a 
collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing 
to comply with a collection of information subject to the PRA that does 
not display a valid OMB control number.
    The public may view the background documentation for this 
information collection at the following Web site www.reginfo.gov.
