Information Collection on Report for Credit Card Plans. Remember back on February 1 where I got all bent out of shape regarding the CFPB's expansion of their Credit Card Survey to certain credit unions with 10 days notice?
Yesterday, the CFPB issued an Information Collection Request which asks whether the 30 minutes it estimates for financial institutions - including approximately 20 of the largest credit unions - is accurate.
"Request for Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau's estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the 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 collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record." (Emphasis added).
The reporting form is FR 2572. And, you can also review the instructions and form (opens as an Excel document) for responding to the report. After reading the instructions, would you say that completing the task would take 30 minutes? Me neither.
For the 20 or so credit unions who were recently added to the Report - did it take your credit union 30 minutes? For those credit unions who weren't covered - how long did it take you to determine you weren't covered?

Wow - you couldn't ask for a better game last night (a different outcome, sure!). Hats off to Louisville on a great season and an outstanding game. For Michigan - what a run and well done.
I'll leave you with my favorite image from the game (Getty Images):
Oh, yeah - that was called a foul. One thing is for sure, the blog has definitely upped its basketball coverage since the days of Anthony's Penn State Nittany Lions. Fred also mentioned the coverage was a little too skewed to Michigan - so here is a link to Navy's season as well (does David Robinson have any eligibility left?).
