General description of report: The
Guidance on Sound Incentive
Compensation Policies (the Guidance) is
an interagency publication promulgated
by the Board, the Office of the
Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and
the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation (FDIC) that is intended to
assist banking organizations in
designing and implementing incentive
compensation arrangements that do not
encourage imprudent risk-taking and
that are consistent with the safety and
soundness of the organization. The
Guidance contains voluntary
recordkeeping activities.
The Guidance is based on three key
principles. These principles provide
that incentive compensation
arrangements at a banking organization
1. Provide employees incentives that
appropriately balance risk and reward;
2. Be compatible with effective
controls and risk-management; and
3. Be supported by strong corporate
governance, including active and
effective oversight by the organization’s
board of directors.
The recordkeeping provisions of the
Guidance are contained within
principles 2 and 3.
Principle 2—Compatibility With
Effective Controls and Risk Management
Pursuant to Principle 2 of the
Guidance, a banking organization’s risk-
management processes and internal
controls should reinforce and support
the development and maintenance of
balanced incentive compensation
arrangements. Principle 2 states that
banking organizations should create and
maintain sufficient documentation to
permit an audit of the organization’s
processes for establishing, modifying,
and monitoring incentive compensation
Additionally, global systemically
important bank holding companies and
banking organizations subject to
Category II–IV enhanced prudential
standards under Regulation YY and
foreign banking organizations required
to form an intermediate holding
company under Regulation YY should
maintain policies and procedures that
(1) identify and describe the role(s) of
the personnel, business units, and
control units authorized to be involved
in the design, implementation, and
monitoring of incentive compensation
arrangements, (2) identify the source of
significant risk-related inputs into these
processes and establish appropriate
controls governing the development and
approval of these inputs to help ensure
their integrity, and (3) identify the
individual(s) and control unit(s) whose
approval is necessary for the
establishment of new incentive
compensation arrangements or
modification of existing arrangements.
Principle 3—Strong Corporate
Pursuant to Principle 3 of the
Guidance, banking organizations should
have strong and effective corporate
governance to help ensure sound
compensation practices. Principle 3
states that a banking organization’s
board of directors should approve and
document any material exceptions or
adjustments to the organization’s
incentive compensation arrangements
established for senior executives.
Legal authorization and
confidentiality: The recordkeeping
provisions of the Guidance are
authorized pursuant to the Board’s
examination and reporting authorities,
located in sections 9, 11(a), 25, and 25A
of the Federal Reserve Act, section 5 of
the Bank Holding Company Act, section
10(b) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act,
and section 7(c) of the International
Banking Act, and by section 39 of the
Federal Deposit Insurance Act, which
authorizes the Board to prescribe
compensation standards.
Because the recordkeeping provisions
are contained within guidance, which is
nonbinding, they are voluntary. There
are no reporting forms associated with
this information collection.
Because the incentive compensation
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 banking organization,
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. In addition,
the information may also constitute
nonpublic commercial or financial
information, which is both customarily
and actually treated as private by the
respondent, and thus may be kept
confidential by the Board pursuant to
exemption 4 of the FOIA.
Consultation outside the agency: The
Board has consulted with the FDIC and
OCC and confirmed that there will be no
revisions to the guidance.

System, August 26, 2021.

Description: The Head Start REACH:
Strengthening Outreach, Recruitment
and Engagement Approaches with
Families project is proposing to conduct
qualitative case studies to examine the
approaches used by Head Start
programs to recruit, select, enroll, and
retain families experiencing adversities
and the implementation of these
approaches, including supporting
factors and barriers. Adversities is a
broad term that refers to a wide range
of circumstances or events that pose a
threat to a child or caregiver’s physical
or psychological well-being. The
adversities that families experience are
often intertwined with poverty, may co-
occur, and are affected by systematic
factors, such as structural racism.
Common examples include (but are not
limited to) families experiencing
homelessness; involvement in child
welfare, including foster care; and
affected by substance use, mental health
issues, and domestic violence.
We will collect information from six
sites; each site will include (1) a Head
Start program that has demonstrated
success in the RSER of families
experiencing adversities and (2) up to
four of its community partner
organizations that serve families
experiencing adversities.
We will collect information on how
programs determine which adversities
to focus on for their RSER efforts; RSER
approaches programs use, focusing
specifically on families experiencing
adversities; RSER-related training and
support that Head Start staff receive;
partnerships that programs form with
organizations in the community to
support these activities; and supporting
factors and barriers to participation of
enrolled and non-enrolled families who
face adversities.
Respondents: Head Start program
directors, Head Start staff conducting
eligibility, recruitment, selection,
enrollment, attendance (ERSEA)
activities, staff from community
organizations with which Head Start
programs partner for ERSEA activities,
Head Start-eligible parents enrolled in
Head Start, and those not enrolled in
Head Start.

There is one interview protocol for both the program director and the ERSEA staff and the interviewer will tailor it to the respondent(s).
There is no instrument, only a document of duties associated with this activity.
If needed, we will offer the option of a 45-minute one-on-one interview; however, as we do not expect to have to use the interview option
often, the table reflects a 90-minute burden for all families not enrolled in Head Start.
