SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Under the
PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., Federal
agencies must obtain approval from the
Office of Management and Budget
(‘‘OMB’’) for each collection of
information they conduct or sponsor.
‘‘Collection of Information’’ is defined
in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3
and includes agency requests or
requirements that members of the public
submit reports, keep records, or provide
information to a third party. Section
3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C.
3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies
to provide a 60-day notice in the
Federal Register concerning each
proposed collection of information,
including each proposed extension of an
existing collection of information,
before submitting the collection to OMB
for approval. To comply with this
requirement, the Commission is
publishing notice of the proposed
extension of the existing collection of
information listed below. An agency
may not conduct or sponsor, and a
person is not required to respond to, a
collection of information unless it
displays a currently valid OMB control
number.
1
Title: Clearing Exemption for Swaps
Between Certain Affiliated Entities
(OMB Control No. 3038–0104). This is
a request for an extension of a currently
approved information collection.
Abstract: Section 2(h)(1)(A) of the
Commodity Exchange Act requires
certain entities to submit for clearing
certain swaps if they are required to be
cleared by the Commission.
Commission regulation 50.52 permits
certain affiliated entities to elect not to
clear inter-affiliate swaps that otherwise
would be required to be cleared,
provided that they meet certain
conditions. The rule further requires the
reporting of certain information if the
inter-affiliate exemption from clearing is
elected. The Commission will use the
information described in this collection
and reported pursuant to Commission
regulation 50.52 to monitor the use of
the inter-affiliate exemption from the
Commission’s swap clearing
requirement and to assess any potential
market risks associated with such
exemption.
With respect to the collection of
information, the CFTC invites
comments on:
Whether the proposed collection of
information is necessary for the proper
performance of the functions of the
Commission, including whether the
information will have a practical use;
The accuracy of the Commission’s
estimate of the burden of the proposed
collection of information, including the
validity of the methodology and
assumptions used;
Ways to enhance the quality,
usefulness, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and
Ways to minimize the burden of
collection of information on those who
are to respond, including through the
use of appropriate automated electronic,
mechanical, or other technological
collection techniques or other forms of
information technology; e.g., permitting
electronic submission of responses.
You should submit only information
that you wish to make available
publicly. If you wish for the
Commission to consider information
that you believe is exempt from
disclosure under the Freedom of
Information Act, a petition for
confidential treatment of the exempt
information may be submitted according
to the procedures established in § 145.9
of the Commission’s regulations.
2
The Commission reserves the right,
but shall have no obligation, to review,
pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or
remove any or all of your submission
from https://www.cftc.gov that it may
deem to be inappropriate for
publication, such as obscene language.
All submissions that have been redacted
or removed that contain comments on
the merits of the Information Collection
Request will be retained in the public
comment file and will be considered as
required under the Administrative
Procedure Act and other applicable
laws, and may be accessible under the
Freedom of Information Act.
Burden Statement: The Commission
is revising its estimate of the burden for
this collection for counterparties to
swaps between certain affiliated entities
that elect the inter-affiliate exemption
under Commission regulation 50.52.
The respondent burden for this
collection is estimated to be as follows:
Estimated Number of Respondents:
200.
Estimated Average Burden Hours per
Respondent: 1 hour.
Estimated Total Annual Burden
Hours: 200 hours.
Frequency of Collection: Annually; on
occasion.
There are no capital costs or operating
and maintenance costs associated with
this collection.

Mission Software (PRMS) Web
Application; DD Form 1833; OMB
Control Number 0701–0166.
Needs and Uses: Information
collected using the DD Form 1833 is
necessary to positively identify,

interest. The ISOPREP collects
controlled unclassified information in

completes the ISOPREP. All personnel
completing an initial ISOPREP are
required to utilize the PRMS web
application. In rare instances where
personnel do not have access to PRMS,
a hardcopy DD Form 1833 can be
completed. In the interest of protecting
the force and returning personnel who
support the DoD to their units, families
and country, the information collected
for the ISOPREP is a force requirement
for DoD military and civilians serving
overseas.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Title and OMB Number: Defense
Federal Acquisition Regulation
Supplement (DFARS) Part 232, Contract
Financing, and the Clause at 252.232–
7002, Progress Payments for Foreign
Military Sales Acquisitions; OMB
Control Number 0704–0321.
Affected Public: Businesses or other
for-profit and not-for-profit institutions.
Respondent’s Obligation: Required to
obtain or retain benefits.
Number of Respondents: 149.
Responses per Respondent:
Approximately 20.
Annual Responses: 2,928.
Average Burden per Response: 1.5
hours.
Annual Burden Hours: 4,392.
Frequency: On occasion.
Needs and Uses: Section 22 of the
Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C.
2762) requires the U.S. Government to
use foreign funds, rather than U.S.
appropriated funds, to purchase military
equipment for foreign governments. To
comply with this requirement, the
Government needs to know how much
of each progress payment to charge each
country. DFARS 232.502–4–70(a)
prescribes use of the clause at DFARS
252.232–7002 in any contract that
provides for progress payments and
contains foreign military sales
requirements. The clause at 252.232–
7002, Progress Payments for Foreign
Military Sales Acquisitions, requires
each contractor whose contract includes
foreign military sales (FMS)
requirements to submit a separate
progress payment request for each
progress payment rate and to submit a
supporting schedule that clearly
distinguishes the contract’s FMS
requirements from U.S. requirements.
The Government uses this information
to determine how much of each
country’s funds to disburse to the
contractor.
