The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is requesting to renew, without change, the Office of Management and Budget approval for an existing information collection entitled "Generic Information Collection Plan for Studies of Consumers using Controlled Trials in Field and Economic Laboratory Settings." According to the CFPB's notice, the Bureau is seeking to renew the OMB approval for a generic information collection plan to collect data from purposive samples through controlled trials in field and economic laboratory settings.
