Title: Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) Provision 852.211-74, Special Notice (previously 852.210-74).
OMB Control Number: 2900-0588.
Type of Review: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.
Abstract: VAAR Provision 852.211-74, Special Notice, is used only in VA's telephone system acquisition solicitations and requires the contractor, after award of the contract, to submit descriptive literature on the equipment the contractor intends to furnish to show how that equipment meets specification requirements. The information is needed to ensure that equipment proposed by the contractor meets specification requirements. Failure to require the information could result in the installation of equipment that does not meet contract requirements, with significant loss to the contractor if the contractor subsequently had to remove the equipment and furnish equipment that meets specification requirements.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on April 11, 2001, at pages 18854-18855.
Affected Public: Business or other for profit, individuals or households, and not-for-profit institutions.
Estimated Annual Burden: 150 hours.
Estimated Average Burden Per Respondent: 5 hours.
