The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Title, Form, and OMB Number: Department of Defense Application for Priority Rating for Production or Construction Equipment; DD Form 691; OMB Number 0704-0055.
Type of Request: Extension.
Number of Respondents: 610.
Responses Per Respondent: 1.
Annual Responses: 610.
Average Burden Per Response: 1 Hour.
Annual Burden Hours: 610.
Needs and Uses: Executive Order 12919 delegated to the Department of Defense authority to require certain contracts and orders relating to approved Defense Programs to be accepted and performed on a preferential basis. This program helps contractors acquire industrial equipment in a timely manner, thereby facilitating development and support of weapons systems and other important Defense Programs. This information is used so the authority to use a priority rating in ordering a needed item can be granted. This is done to assure timely availability of production or construction equipment to meet current Defense requirements in peacetime and in case of national emergency. Without this information DoD would not be able to assess a contractor's stated requirement to obtain equipment needed for fulfillment of contractual obligations.
Affected Public: Business or Other For Profit; Not-For-Profit Institutions.
Frequency: On Occasion.
Respondents Obligation: Voluntary.
OMB Desk Officer: Mr. David M. Pritzker.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Mr. Pritzker at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
