DOCUMENT ACTION: Notice and request for comment.
Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request--Release of Non-Public Information
DATES: Submit written comments on or before May 26, 2009.
The Department of the Treasury, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed and continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3507. The Office of Thrift Supervision within the Department of the Treasury will submit the proposed information collection requirement described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. Today, OTS is soliciting public comments on its proposal to extend this information collection.
Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposals, Submissions, and Approvals
OTS may not conduct or sponsor an
information collection, and respondents are not required to respond to
an information collection, unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number. As part of the
approval process, we invite comments on the following information collection.
Comments should address one or more of the following points:
a. Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of OTS;
b. The accuracy of OTS's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection;
c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
d. Ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of information technology.
We will summarize the comments that we receive and include them in the OTS request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this notice, OTS is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection.
Title of Proposal: Release of NonPublic Information.
OMB Number: 15500081.
Form Numbers: N/A.

OTS staff also uses the information to help determine whether the requester's need for the unpublished information outweighs the agency's confidentiality concerns.

Affected Public: Businesses or other forprofit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 25.
