Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for 
OMB Review; Comment Request Re Occasional Qualitative Surveys

AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

ACTION: Notice and request for comment.


SUMMARY: The FDIC, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork 
and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal 
agencies to take this opportunity, as required by the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), to comment on renewal of 
an existing information collection as required by the PRA. On May 10, 
2013 (78 FR 27388), the FDIC solicited public comment for a 60-day 
period on renewal without change of its information collection 
entitled, ``Occasional Qualitative Surveys'' (OMB No. 3064-0127). No 
comments were received. Therefore, the FDIC hereby gives notice of 
submission of its request for renewal to OMB for review.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before August 14, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Interested parties are invited to submit written comments. 
All comments should refer to the name of the collection. Comments may 
be submitted by any of the following methods:
     Email: comments@fdic.gov.
     Mail: Leneta G. Gregorie (202.898.3719), Counsel, Federal 
Deposit Insurance Corporation, 550 17th Street NW., Room NY-5050, 
Washington, DC 20429.
     Hand Delivery: Comments may be hand-delivered to the guard 
station at the rear of the 550 17th Street Building (located on F 
Street), on business days between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
    A copy of the comments may also be submitted to the FDIC Desk

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information about this 
information collection, please contact Leneta G. Gregorie, by telephone 
at (202) 898-3719 or by mail at the address identified above.

    The FDIC is requesting OMB approval to renew the following 
information collection:
    Title: Occasional Qualitative Surveys.
    OMB Number: 3064-0127.
    Estimated number of surveys per year: 15.
    Estimated response time per survey: 1 hour.
    Estimated number of respondents per survey: 850.
    Total Annual Burden: 12,500 hours.
    General Description of Collection: The information collected in 
these surveys is anecdotal in nature, that is, samples are not 
necessarily random, the results are not necessarily representative of a 
larger class of potential respondents, and the goal is not to produce a 
statistically valid and reliable database. Rather, the surveys are 
expected to yield anecdotal information about the particular 
experiences and opinions of members of the public, primarily staff at 
respondent banks or bank customers. The information is used to improve 
the way FDIC relates to its clients, to develop agendas for regulatory 
or statutory change, and in some cases to simply learn how particular 
policies or programs are working, or are perceived in particular cases.

Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether these collections of 
information are

necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including 
whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the 
estimate of the burden of the information collection, 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 information collection on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will 
become a matter of public record.

    Dated at Washington, DC, this 10th day of July, 2013.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Robert E. Feldman,
Executive Secretary.
