Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501
Form N-Q (17 CFR 249.332 and 274.130) is a combined reporting form that is used for reports of registered management investment companies ("funds"), other than small business investment companies registered on Form N-5, under Section 30(b) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1
Form N-Q contains collection of information requirements. The respondents to this information collection are management investment companies subject to Rule 30b1-5 under the Investment Company Act. We estimate that there are 10,453 portfolios required to file reports on Form N-Q. Based on conversations with industry representatives, we estimate that it takes approximately 21 hours per portfolio to prepare Form N-Q. Accordingly, we estimate that the total annual burden estimated associated with Form N-Q is 219,513 hours (21 hours per portfolio x 10,453 portfolios) per year. The estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501
